I Care Because

I actually finished watching a movie and I cried for so long I didn't even know. I couldn't stop and I realized I'm never ever going to let bulling happen while Im around. So many people are bullying and I can't help but cry everytime I see something so sad.

I was bullied since I was 7 years old. Now I'm 17 and I still have problems with bullying. Nobody understands me and I feel so lonely and desperate. 
In school I stay alone, they laugh at me all the time about everything.
At nights when my family are sleeping I dont sleep, I cry and I cut myself.
This is the reason that I hate bullying because words can hurt you.

I have been a victim of bullying and it's really hard to deal with. Going through it alone only makes it worse. I know how it feels to have feelings of hatred directed at me. I remember the thoughts of suicide. I just want other people who are in the situation that i am in that it gets better. Just talk to someone, PLEASE. Don't do anything crazy. Someone can help. Trust me. I Know...

When i got to 6th grade, Life started more difficult. I closest friends, and everyone would pick on me. I just fit in. I only had five real friends in my grade out of 40. In lunch, i had nobody to sit next too, other than my one best friend, and these 3 girls, that were really rude and used to pick on me. I would get teased, and there would be so many rumors about me constantly and i would be the last to be picked for partner activities. A girl told everyone i had lice one time. The only one that would stand up for me, was my best friend Angaya. I never knew what i would do without her. She gave me all the advice i needed. Unfortunately, she moved in 7th grade. On the first day of 7th grade, i sat alone at lunch. Of course, nobody even cared. I was so embarassed I spent most of the day going to the bathroom, and crying there. All i wanted to do was go home. It was that bad. the 2nd day got better. These 4 girls actually decided to sit at my table. 8th Grade was a little bit better. I started standing out, and talking to people and made more friends. But now, going into 9th grade, i have a lot more friends than i did. Thanks to marching band, and demi lovato.

Oh my gosh, there are so many reasons. I wasn't really bullied but I saw it happen way too often. ONCE is too often in my view. Anyway, ever since I was in First Grade bullies have made me angry. Not because they were bullying me, it was just because I saw what they did to other kids and it was just not right to treat another human being that way. I decided I was going to do something different and stand up for the victims of these punks.

I also knew that for me to just be mean to them was not what I wanted to do either. A bunch of these bullies were on the baseball team with me. I decided to write a note explaining how much they were hurting these innocent kids with their words and that just because they were popular kids with lots of friends didn't give them the right to hurt others. I taped a letter to every boy on my team's locker. A bunch of them told me they really didn't realize how much hurt they were causing other kids.

What I'm saying here is don't be a bystander.  I beg you to take action and be a hero to a victim of bullying. If you get that feeling you should do something, please do it! Even if you don't feel safe standing up to a bully, saying something to a victim literally might save their life! Be a friend to a kid who desperately needs one.

I care because nobody deserves to suffer from the torture of bullying.  I felt all that pain and survived. To this this day i do all all i can the ensure that everybody treated with the love and respect they deserve.
