I have been bullied my entire life. It started out small with words like weird and retarted and not exactly threatening but as I got older it got worse I was getting pushed around and called worse names that I wont mention. But with the help of my two best friends I was able to get through it and now it doesnt bother me at all. I would just like to tell everyone , stay positive and help out if you see someone being bullied.

We all bully. Every one of us. Even though we may be joking around with someone, it still might hurt them. I've always been bullied, even though people just might be joking around. I even realize that I bully sometimes, I once I catch myself I stop and tell the person I didn't really mean what I said or did. I know what it feels like to be bullied, and I admit I have bullied, but if we all just try to catch ourselves when we bully, and apologize, the world will be a much safer, and better place.

They say bullying never can get to you  but if your a person like me bullying can get to you.  I've been bullied ALOT.  The saying, "sticks and stones may break my bones but words never hurt".  Well it's 100% wrong.  Words can get to you and make you eventually think what people are saying about you are true. Also, it leads to many unforgettalbe and lifetime decisions that you would never regret.  I've pretty much been called every word you can think of.  When I get bullied on i never speak up but hopfully overcome that and defend myself, but always when I did I always got in trouble for saying what I fell is right to say.  There are many people like me, Trust me I know I see it happening to not only me, but millons of other kids a day.  Lets all put a stop to it and stop bullying. It can start with just ONE PERSON saying ONE BOLD COMMENT. LETS ALL GET TOGETHER AND STOP BULLYYING

I want bullying to stop just because we are unique and different doesnt mean we can be picked on or pushed around!

Sometimes people can hide what they really feel and you never know what they are feeling until they are gone.. So speak up and do something before its to late.. There's no such thing as having too many friends... So make a new one a bring someone up!

Bullying can make people want to hurt themselves and make people mad.

my friends and i are getting bullying and we are sticking up for each other

I was in fifth grade and had about four girls I called my best friends. We called ourselves a "group" and no one else was allowed in. I was a bigger child. Well about two weeks for the summer, these girls starting telling me I was fat, calling me a pig and oinking at me, and they told me I wasn't part of the group anymore. I cried and cried, but I never told anyone about it.

The start of my freshman year of high school I became anorexic because of my fear of not having friends because I was fat. I was 105 at 5'6. I was hurting my body because of something someone said. Then people started saying I looked sick and I was too skinny. 

No matter what people are going to be mean. You've got to love yourself for who you are. Be who you want to be, and don't let anyone tell you can't. It's easier said than done, though. 

If you're being bullied, PLEASE let someone know. You arent the only one, and it can be stopped! Check out what your school can do for bullying. There are websites, phonelines, counselors, organizations, and people who will listen. YOU DONT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS ALONE. 

Much Love,

My highschool years were destroyed by people I thought were my friends. I had been bullied all year to the point where I was becoming unhealthy. I isolated myself and became depressed. I know now that I should've gotten help. Now I can take a stand and make a decision to make myself better and inform other people.

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

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.’”
