I Care Because

I have been bullied throughout junio high school and highschool and just because I was different.But being diferent is not wrong, bullies are.
You can't judge a person unless you really know her well but it is not the case with bullies.I still remember their look while they were laughing at me and making me feel like a monster.I used to go back home crying and I was afraid every single day.I even started to think that life wasn't worth it.But I was wrong.I quickly understood that I had two choices: either let them break me or be over it and become stronger and more confident.I choosed that last option and my life is way better now.I can't say that it doesn't hurt me anymore cause it left some serious wounds but I can handle it now cause I know that it is the best thing to do.And that is why I care so much about all the people who are still bullied at school or anywhere.I am so sensitive to their pain and I want them to know that everything gets better in time but for that you need to speak out and let the bullies know that you are not afraid of them and that you are stronger.

Bullying is not something that should be done to anyone. People that like to bully other people are just full of hate. They don't have anything better to do with their lives. I have been bullied before and it isn't fun. People say that My Forehead is bigger then other peoples but I don't see it. But does what they say affect me. I always try to blow it away but that doesn't always help. But I know I always have friends there to help me. If you are being bullied tell someone. Don't just keep it inside. There is people out there that will help you, And it is much needed if you are getting bullied. Tell your parents. teachers, Principals, or any trusty adult.

I had a chance to stop some bullying last year, but I didn't cuz I was scared. Still feel bad about that.

I've been bullied a lot before and I want to help people who have been in my situation. I want to make a difference in the world and help people.

How come whenever I turn on the news, I see a autistic person being bullied? Why them? They're not any different then us? Just because they have autism? Seriously, people, you can do much better, by NOT BULLYING!!!!!!! 
If you think about it, we're almost all the same! And what we're different, we have to be tolerant about!
(Tolerance means that you accept people for who they are)

I have been bullied metally and physically, and I know it's hard. I know kids now who are being bullied, but other kids, don't speak up; or tell a teacher. I believe that if anyone who has seen someone being bullied tells a teacher, then we will have more peace at school, at home, and in the world. To help spread this message, I started a bully prevention club with all my friends and our goal is to stop as much bullying as we can.

Bullying is such a common thing and the society isnt recognizing the extremes people will go to! There have been so many suicides from kids that dont even know why they are being bullied. And half the time they are being bullied its not even their fault! It has to do with the bullies. Maybe their life hasnt been perfect or they have abusive parents. Kids these days dont even tell their parents whats going on at school, fearing they will get made fun of for being a "tattle-tale" and then get bullied even more. Society doesnt realize what the extremes are. Like Columbine High School shooting is a very big example. The shooters were victems of bullying one way or another. And that day should have effected the society and showed them that this is what happens when adults, teachers, playground monitors..etc are not aware of what goes on during that "regular school day". I AM A VICTEM OF BULLYING AND IT NEEDS TO STOP. NOW.

When I was younger I always wanted to be the one ot fit in, but too often I found myself all alone running my fingers along the fence waiting for recess to be over.  I used to get teased because I was over weight from elementry school all the way up to high school even.  Now that I am in college it isn't that bad but people can still be rude.  I thought of suicide twice in my life just to get away from everyone looking at me and laughing as I walked by.  They would whispe things  as they laughed.  I got called always every fat joke in the book and even got called "Chunks", and "Beefy" once because of my name.  So here is my advice to you all, who cares what they say.  They don't see the potential that you have in you.  Stand up and dont' let them see you get down.  They are just afraid you will see past them and laugh at them when all they need is someone to listen to them.  Keep your chin up and don't look down and no matter what, i repeat no matter what don't stop believing in a better future.  God bless you all. :)

no one should have to feel alone or invisible because people are cruel in school or online. Everyone deserves to have a voice. Bystanders need to stand up for what they KNOW is right. Stand up for the person being unfairly treated because it may end up that you save their life. No one deserves being bullied, so stand together and end it!

I do not like seeing others hurting. I care because any type of pain for a child or teen is wrong and needs to be stopped.

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.’”
