I have been bullied. There is not one day that I haven't thought about ending my life now. Ever since I was in Kindergarden I have been treated like this. Sad, huh? Teachers at my school try to act like they care. But honestly...I dont feel like they do. Almost nothing is enough. I am now on medications for anxiety and seeing a therapist. LIfe is aweful, or in my words, a haunted house. I wasnt to stand up and make a difference. This happens everyday and adulys aren't enought, this is not a joke. But yet most teens treat it like a joke. This really hurts, and I wont ever be the same me again. I know Im not alone, yet my parents always say "there are worse situations!" BUt really? It shouldn't madder..I mean I am their daughter. Or am I just some other story? I have recently started a club at my school to stop this. It hurts, I hurt, This needs to end!

I am currently being bullied right now. A girl in my 5th period has a locker next to me and keeps saying mean words to me. I decided to kill the hatred with kindness. I started saying nice things to her and soon she backed off. Hope this helped! Love you, guys.

ive gotten bullied before so I took a stand just because you're bigger than somebody you don't use that weight to push them down you use it to pick them up.

I was bullied(and still am) every year starting when I was in 6th grade. The others on my bus would call me names, make fun of how I talk, act, and even walk sometimes! My bus driver never did anything to help. She would just watch them call me names, pick trash up off the floor, take my stuff and throw it somewhere, I remember when I was in 7th grade, I got on my bus and sat down next to a girl I knew and is my friend. I wore my favorite orange jacket that day and don't have it anymore. And here is the reason why: the people decided to take the trash can and found an unfinished drink and poured it all over the jacket. Then, they took the trash and it was like they just dumped it on my head. If it wasn't for my older sister who is in college now, I don't know if I would still be here today. For why they bully me and others worldwide, the world may never know; but the people being affected by it to this day know better than the others.  I just wish that the entire universe would take bullying more seriously.

My friend was being bullied by a group kids in high school and because of bullying i lost my friend. People always forget how much words hurt to people . We ALL need to put an end to bullying.

I care about bullying and cyber bullying because it hurts so many young people. It can lead to several mental and psychological problems that can last for the rest of their lives. The years of torture and harassment may end but the emotional scars from it remains.

I don't like people who are mean to others. I'm in Special
Olympics and are friends with kids and adults with all kinds of
disabilities. I look up to a lot of celebrities who are against bullying.
I'm not going to mention their names to protect their privacy, but
a lot of people know who they are. I was bullied for singing too loudly
on the school bus. Some people say that it wasn't bullying....but it hurt when people 
would tell me to stop because they didn't like me singing. I don't know. All I know is that
I'm against bullying.

I care because i feel like i've been bullied so much. Not only directly to me but behind my back and the way people act around me. I've been bullied because of how i have facial hair and i'm a girl and how chubby my cheeks are. My parents don't haven't allowed me to remove the facial hair because they say i'm not old enough.... I care because when you're bullied you need to stand up for yourself and gain your self confidence back. Bullying definitely weakens your confidence but i learned to fight it. Be confident with who you are. Who you are inside and your personality will show who you really are rather than an unconfident, quiet person who's easy to pick on. Stand up for yourself and stay strong!

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.’”
