I Care Because

All throughout highschool I was bullied for different reasons. It affected my confidence and made me hate who I was. I ended up doing cyber school for my senior year because the bullying was too much, I was afraid to go back. My mom has helped me a lot through this and I just take life day by day now, trying to stay positive about the person I am.

I've been on both ends of the stick. I've been the bully, and I've been bullied. People at my school don't realize that people change, and aren't willing to give the second chances some people desereve. I want to help the kids who feel like they have no one because that's all I wanted when I was down... was someone to be there and really care and that's what I want to be to someone. It's out of hand the way some kids are feeling about themselves because of other peoples opinions. It has to stop and I don't know what it's going to take for some people to realize it. But I'm going to spend the rest of my life being the voice of the ones whose voices are too shakey to do it on their own.

It seems that a majority of the people in my life are bullied, but instead of addressing it my school has the tendency of ignoring it completely. My friend was bullied to a point of near suicide and when her parents went to the school about it they told them to "Deal with it" 
People also like to laugh and poke fun at the special education class and the hallways are an extremely hostile, a few times I've had to dodge a punch just because the person thought it would be /funny/ to hit someone. I care because I hate to see people get hurt.

Almost 6 months ago I lost a very dear friend of mine to suicide due to bullying..Now tommorow at 11:00 I get to see her brother get buried beside her. Bullying is not just some harmless act. I have lost two friends in a matter of 6 months...because of this. Its just sad to see a brother and sister think they have no other way out :'(  And what makes me angry is that when shelbie died everyone blamed it on her brother..Soo from that day on he had been taunted and teased, being told "you should have been the one to kill yourself not your sister!" Even though he took it to the Principle he was told to grow up and be the bigger person and since nobody would listen we now have to lay him to rest. I love and miss Shelbie and Tim very much...it will just not be the same without them :(

I was bullied in elementary school and middle school. As a 4th and 5th grader I didn't know what it was but I didn't like it. Bullying got worse as I entered the 6th grade. For 3 long silent years, I wished I didn't exist. I cried every night and prayed that I wouldnt wake up in the morning. In my sophomore year in high school, the silence broke at the wrong time. I realized keeping the silence inside wasn't doing me any good. I was digging a hole so I could bury myself. As a junior going on my senior year, I look back and see the damage I've done to myself and the people around. Now, I am willing to help my sister and everyone who is being bullied to break the silence and not dig a hole to hid in. Bullying is wrong.
Hugs to everyone

I have been bullied myself. It has stopped cause the police had to get involved. Yet, people still bring it up. I didn't do anything to deserve being treated the way i was. there were three guys that ruined my life. They would post mean stuff about me on fb. I cannot say on this website what they were saying... thats how bad it was. we need to put a stop to all the bullying.

I have been a bully. I bullied a girl on the school bus after school every day in 6th grade because that was my way of dealing with problems at home, and just a few weeks ago, i saw her facebook status, saying how she wanted to kill herself. and i felt awful knowing that i was one of the causes of her considering suicide. if she actually went through with it, i don't think i could've lived with myself. i felt disgusted that i didn't have the respect to not put her down and tease her all the time. so i messaged her and apologized for everything i've done. we're now friends. she didn't commit suicide and i am so thankful for that. but it's sad how someone killing themselves is what it takes to open the bully's eyes on how serious this can be. if you're being bullied, there is hope. you're perfect just the way you are and there's no excuse for anyone to bully you in any way.

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.’”
