I have been a victim of bullying and I understand  the difficulties and pain that it causes to many kids my age. I want people to know that they're never alone in their pain and we all care enough to try and make a difference:-)

When I was little there was this Kid named *Katlynn and she was always being made fun of becuase of her weight. She finally got so sick of it she just became one of those kids that keep to their selfs.....I tried to be her friend but she just shrugged me off and told me she didnt need friends she had her brother........Bullying is Ruining lives~!

I care because I feel like everybody is a beautiful person and nobody should put each other down. I'm not trying to sound like a hippie or anything, its just...I have witnessed so much bullying and it really breaks my heart. I don't understand the point in bullying someone just because they were different. Different could be really good, but nobody wants to give it a chance. I have been bullied before, but I told my mom as soon as it started. And I thought that the whole situation at the time was really stupid because the problem I had could have been solved with a 30-second conversation. I mean, like, really???!!!! The girls who had a problem with me could have come up to me themselves and we all would have understood that it was all a misunderstanding. And that can be the case for many bullying situations. Communication is more important than you think. My only recommendation for any victims is tell someone....please. Please just tell someone, I'm not trying to sound like some cheesy commercial, I'm being real. You need to tell someone. If you have no one to tell, reach out to a guidance counselor at school or a teacher. It could really help you, you don't deserve to live in fear. When you tell someone, you are taking the bullies power away. Anyway....umm....that is why I care.

i have been bullied before but i took a stand and so it doesnt happen to me very much any more but it used to be bad! I still  hate the fact that other people are being bullied still. I  want to make a difference against bulling! Its not fair beacause we all should be treated right!!!

I care because I have been bullied myself for almost a year from my so-called friend. It really hurt me alot and even though it was about 3 years ago it still hurts me a lot. I don't know why some people are so rude or why it is funny to them to bully other people. What I did was, I told my parents everything and they gave me the strength to carry on. I ignored the ones that bullied me and I just made my own way. I have to say that I'm stronger now.
We have to stand up and do something about this! We can't go on this

I think bullying is wrong because it hurts people feelings.

I have made many mistakes in my life.  I have been mean to people, and they have been in turn mean to me.  Ever since i was in kindergarten, people have been picking on me, and I should have seen it coming.  I really, really want to help people who have had to live like me.  I go to school, it's tough, but I get home, and while she may be gone now, she made my life super difficult.  Now I know how to be the bully, and the bullied.  it's not really fun on either side of the table, and I want to help people like me, because my life was one that nobody NOBODY deserves.

People don't realize how bullying hurts. I was bullied, and I am 17 years old. High school can seem terrible, but with the help of my two sisters and friends I was able to pull through. However, some people do not have that privilege. To each and every person who is suffering hurt and depression I say this: "You matter in the world. Everyone matters."

Bullying hurts and it should be stopped.

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.’”
