I was bullied grade 4- grade 8 and in the first three semesters in college. I wasn't only bullied by the kids who I tried to fit in with but I was also bullied by teachers who called me dumb and useless. I had to face the stupidest people who used a parents' death to bully me. I care because I have nieces and I do not want them to go through what I went . I want them to show these happiness deprived people how they are stronger than them . Bullying does not only take in America it also takes place in countries like Pakistan , India . In other words , all over the world . I hope the best for everyone all around the world and hope that someday bullying does get abolished.

I was severely affected by cyberbullying. It took over two years of my life and I don't want anyone to go through what I went through. I never found out who it was or why. I enjoy helping people through the bullying, but it can be prevented. Tolerance is key. I don't want anyone to turn to self-harm or have suicidal thoughts because someone is being inconsiderate.

i know how hard it is to be bullied and have to face the same people day after day. I know how hard it is to have to start over completely. But i also care because i know it gets better, however hard that might be to accept at the time.

this happens in our country..Many teens are being bullied right now and I know we must do something to stop this..This really hurts. My classmates always bully my other classmates and many problems occur in our school just because of BULLYING. So I want to share this to all the teens or parents who are viewing this website so that they will realize that BULLYING is wrong... I want to thank the creator of this website for creating this and I wish that this will end..

I care because i've experienced bullying, i was bullied during 3 years of my life, going to school was hell, just imagine hearing those voices whispering (sometimes even shouting) offensive comments, calling me names in the halls, was the worst thing that could ever happen to me, the school bus was a nightmare for me, people throwing me sandwiches, bottles, newspapers, books, notebooks, even shoes. When i got home, i didn't want my parents to worry about me, i didn't want to be another problem for them, so i kept it to myself, i'd cry everyday every night till i fell asleep. It left me problems, lack of confidence, anorexia, low self esteem, antisocial, depressive, suicidal. But i have to say, the moment i left that school, the moment i entered my new school everything got better instantly, i started making new friends, people didn't know my name, so they didn't bully me, it's been almost 3 years and my life has made a 360 degree turn, i'm happy with myself, my self esteem has gotten better, i have friend (not many but true friends for sure) my confidence is back, i can talk to people without feeling judged, i can walk through the halls without being afraid, and i see life in a totally different way, i can see myself with a future. I have hope, YOU JUST HAVE TO STAY STRONG. Those bullies, are NOTHING. It definitely gets better.

From 1th To 5th Grade I Was Bullied By Class Mates & People I Once Considerd my "Friends".
I Switched Schools And Made New Friends..
But Even With A New Life, Bullying Still Affects Me Today. I Have Depression  From It And Sever Anxeity..

Think BEFORE You Say Something..
Words Hurt More Than Actions.

I am doing a article about bullying prevention month for my school newspaper. The reason why I picked this assignment because my little sister was picked and bullied on in school. I remember her coming home crying because a boy called her names and I could do anything about it because I went to a different school. I told her to tell our mother but she would not tell and I promise her that I wouldn't either. Well two months passed and she was going to kill herself because of what they were writing about her on Facebook. I finally had to tell mom and we got her into to a group of students who have the same problem as her. We went to the school board because it was a serious matter. Now we convinced them to make it a rule in all the schools that if you bullied you were kicked out of school. This is the reason why I picked this story to write about because it is a personal matter to me and my family. After that day we are now closer than ever.

everyone needs to be treated the same. No one deserves to be picked on at school or at home. What did they ever do to you? Even if you have a reason, just leave it alone and then you won't get in trouble.

I have been bullied for a long time and because of that loads of my friends were gone. But it was usually cause I was always getting used cause every year I had a different friend and then they still left me. I told my family but they told me that you don't need friends and i usually got bullied because well i am not sure but my friend told me this that because i smell and i think that i don't and then ontop of that i am going to a new school and me and my family always care about my brother and not me. Even when I want to cry the tears won't come out and i made a promise that i wouldn't cry infront of my parents cause they scold me if i do.

I know how bullying can affect you. I know how it can make you feel like you're useless. You are not! Do not let anyone bring you down. <3

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
