I Care Because

i've have been bullied alot and still do, there's all these people who say mean things to me and give me looks when i walk past. This one typical girl pushed me out of my chair and then smiled. Also boys are very mean and agressive but thats just typical boys! I like to stay strong because i know if i do i'll actually get somewhere in life and the people who think they're so cool won't. I care because i know bullying is a terrible thing and we should just stay strong and say NO! to it, Don't give up you're still worth it!

I want my son to grow up in a world were bullying doesn't exist but that's asking for too much.  If people stood up for each other..spoke up when needed...cared just a little more...and simply thought of the future maybe it would stop.  When you see bullying DO SOMETHING bc if u dont ur being part of it.  The victim is someones brother/sister, daughter/son, friend...what if they were ur friend,sibling, child...wouldnt u want some1 to stand up for them?!? I care because I hope for a brighter future for each one of u who I dont even know...

I care because it absolutely breaks my heart to read these stories. It is so important to understand that you are more than words that cruel people speak. Every person on earth is meant to be here and deserves to be treated with love and respect. Unfortunately that's not always the case. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I urge all of you young women and men to reach out and get help. Stop hurting yourselves STOP starving yourselves Stop believing the hurtful things people say. Somebody does love you and somebody does think your beautiful and somebody DOES CARE. Look inside yourself and love yourself. Don't let anybody make you feel like your not worth being loved. Because you are. I wish I could take all the negativity out of this world but that's impossible. Middle school and high school is just the very beginning of your life and a very short part of it. Love yourself and be kind to yourself. Don't let anyone take away your spirit, don't let anyone make you feel bad for who you are. And most importantly remember YOU ARE LOVED YOU ARE IMPORTANT AND YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

I've been teased a LOT! And I don't even know why. The reason why I join Teens Against Bullying is because I want to make a difference, I don't want people in this world to suffer because of Bullying! I want them to feel how childhood really is and I want bullies to realize that they're just making a bad choice doing this. In my opinion if Bullies want to be treated nicely they have to earn it themselves. And This just needs to END!

Being bullied hurts. You feel alone and helpless, but remeber you are not alone and you are not helpless. I can't count the times and reasons I've been bullied. Sometimes it's gone to far, especially when someone is killed. RIP Pheobe and to all those who have died because they were bullied. You will always be loved and remebered.

My name is Angelica. My best friends name is Ashley Gomez. I am her only friend. She is suffering for Ceberal Palsey and can not Walk, her left arm is deformed. She has been bullied her whole life. I am her first reak friend. She is actually 20 years old. I am 13. Its very sad. She may never marry, she may never have kids, These are serisous possibilities that come to her mind everyday. She cries herself to sleep every night. Ashley Gomez, I love you. I will always be here for you <3 And Anyone else who need me, Im here No matter what!! I love you all!! Im trying my best to stop bullying!! I too left public school to be homeschooled. I am homeschooled through connections academy, where I have met other students who have the same problem as me. I was not bullied. But I watched it happen everyday. I tried my best to stop it. Nothing worked. I was sick of listening to all of the harsh horrible things people said. So I left school. I now go to school to school giving speeches. I love you all <3

Everyday when I see this kid, he calls me pinoccho because i have a long nose. And he is a bully to everyone, and im taller than him so everyone excpects me to not be threatend by him, but it still hurts and i don't like to fight.

Bullying is just wrong and people need to stop it.

my bro was getting bullied when he was 8-9 because he couldn't read very well. i knew i had to help him because his grades started dropping and he started faking sick because he didn't want to go to school. after a few years of helping him, he is the best reader in his class and nobody bullies him anymore because his is a very polite person.

I think bullying is a terrible thing to do. It makes kids feel down and they lose the self confidence about them selves

Kassidy, 12, Kilcoy

I know what it's like to be bullied, I understand how hard it can be some days, and I'm able to relate to those who have had it worse than me. My school isn't the best school, the teachers consider it to be a good atmosphere for kids like me, but it's not. Kids pick on the other kids constantly, people get pushed into lockers, kids get tripped in the halls, and you can hear laughter directed at someone wherever you go, all while the teachers are standing only a few feet away. So even though my school isn't the greatest it only makes me more motivated to make a difference, I care because bullying is one thing I just can't tolerate.

I have been bullied for 2 years and all this year. My parents always hollard telling me to fight but that would make things worse.  I was always myself and now i cant be im not my self cause i get picked on. They call me fat and ugly, stup'id, whore and so on. I come home crying not wanting to go to school and my p'arents never listen to me. I wanted to take my life. I didn't eat at all i was always depressed. I dont want someone else having to feel that way its horriabl'e. i cry my self to sleep every night. Bull'ying needs to stop'. i care cause its risking kids life hurting kids.

I have not been bullied but I feel sorry for the bullies. Nobody deserves to be bulied. Everyone's the same. We all should be treated the same way.

i was bullied and its not right for kids to have to live through the pain

He don't worry about being bullied.  If you see someone getting bullied, tell a teacher or an adult that wills tep in a help.  Or get a group of friends to stand up to the bully.  Don't be afriad, and don't let him get power over 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.’”
