i have never been bullied before but the people that are being bullied feels sad and don't want to go to school but you have to go to to school and one day you will go to school and you will stand up for yourself it dosen't matter what people say about you.

I get bulled because I have ADHD and I will go crazy in class. People will push me and hit me and call me a mean names. I'm depress and I cut myself hoping pain will help but it makes it worse because people will call me Emo and they will hit me more

"I know what it is like to have the fear of what will happen to me next. I used to come to school and I would keep my head down and just walk on by. I wouldnt talk to people and I would never go to any of the school activities. I have been assaulted, bullied, and harrassed, but that never stopped me from doing what i do best.....being me. I care because I know that I am not the only one out there that goes through things like this. And I know that I can not change anything, unless I take action. So I did. And now I am respected by my fellow peers at my school. I am a senior and I am proud to be a gay teen living in my town and going to my school. I do realize all that I had missed out on through out the years, but I am not gonna let my past control me, and neither should you. You are the writer of your own book, not those  that want to put you down or hurt you because you are different. My whole life, I have seen the cruelity of man and I have come to realize that it doesnt matter what they think. what only matters is what you think and do in your life to make you known around the world. Be the best you can be. And you will rise to the highest peeks of the world.

I've been bullied just because I'm abit fat,they called me names that shouldnt be mentioned,and it wasn't only verbal bullying they used to hit me real bad too,and the worst part was that even my bestfreinds we're joining in but in an indirect way,and my parent weren't a support at all they'ed be to busy to listen or they will just tell me that it's going to be fine,you have to solve it yourself,but then I got a true best freind and she supported me and she helped me speak up to them and now I'm all better so advise to all stick to your best freinds and never be afraid to speak up your mind cause it wont stop unless you did something about it
