Video: This I Believe

Five high school students read an adaptation of an essay written by a 14-year-old, who shares what it is like to experience bullying and to be misunderstood as he tries to figure life out. We are grateful to this young author, who asked to remain anonymous, for courageously providing a glimpse into his world and for reminding each of us to be more kind to each other.

I Care Because

I was bullied all through Jr. High and so far, most of high school. It hurts. Being bullied can ruin your life. I began self-harming myself for it because I was so alone. I only had two friends and we always fought because I was so depressed and I was never happy. Bullying is a terrible thing and it shouldn't be done. It gives you a horrible feeling. It knocks down your self worth and confidence. You end up believing every word they say about you and spiraling downward. It's never an easy thing to deal with. I still deal with it. I'm still trying to overcome my addiction to self-harm as well...

I go to a Catholic Schcool and I'm proud of that, but even in a place like that, bullying goes on. Juat little things that people would say to me made me offeneded or even made me cry. I know now that I really do need to stop this before it gets out of hand. Thanks for encouraging me Demi!

Annamaria, 13, CO

when i was in 8th grade nasty rumors went around school abou mte, it ruined my life & even till this day the girls who started it still continue it in high school & it suckz, but i learned to get over it & just realize to be me & none of it is true so i shouldnt care what people think ... this goes out to everyone getting bullied, tell someone you trust, dont keep it to yourself, take these matters serious. dont let nobody bring you down ! stay stong & dont ever think bad about yourself, everyone is beautiful in their own special way ! STAY STRONG & MAKE SURE YOU LET PEOPLE KNOW ANY RUMORS ABOUT YOU ARE NOT TRUE & DONT LET IT GET TO YOU.
