Bullying is mean and nasty, it can affect the lives of so many. People who get bullied are affected in so many ways, some including; depression, anxiety, stress, sadness and anger. When someone gets bullied it can either happen online (cyber-bullying) or face-to-face. I firmly believe that bullying MUST stop because when i experienced it, i felt sad and useless. So to all bullies out there who think they are "cool" because of bullying stop and think to yourself. What's the point of bullying? To feel better? To become popular? Well your wrong, because you will NEVER feel better. Instead the only thing you know how to do is to make others suffer?...

Kat, 13, Australia

Bullying is a real sad thing and i thnk no one should ever go through it! I have been through bullying and it made me feel bad about myself and if you are getting bullied just KEEP CALM AMD BE YOURSELF because you are one of a kind and can never be replaced!
