Bullying hurts alot. I know. Everyone is created equal. everyone is beautiful. theres nothing wrong with being different because different is good.Not bad. i think its better to be yourself instead of trying to be popular or the coolest. If you want to be the best that you can BE YOU, dont listen to the world if there saying bad things about you just be you.

I started a small organization at my middle school in the USA. I hate bullying it is so unfortunate to see innocent people being picked on for what they believe in and what they look like. People need to be respected for who they are and what they do. People bully because they want to feel superior about themselves. We can stand up to bullying. I attended he stand up to bullying rally for the student council at my school because I need the hate to stop.

I am six. I am in Kindergarten. This boy won't leave me alone. He is mean and choked me so hard it left rings around my neck. I don't want anyone else to get choked in school.

I have been bullied a few times . Nothing too bad . But after getting bullied by these 2 girls that were a year older then me . . I was too scared to go to school . Not even an hour into school I could last . I was crying and in tears by 2nd hour . But since then , everything has been on the easier road for me . Until 7th grade begun , I lost friends because of obnoxious rumors . I was hurt . I was so sad when I went to the bathroom and noticed that there were writings in there about me . I was heartbroken . But now that that was settled . I support everyone in my school . And I try my best to help my friends and family recover from depression or recover from the state of being bullied . <3

I feel that many get bullied online i want to take action, please if you can show me. my school hardly physically bullies, but there are hurtful words. And comments online. I feel like my word wont make a difference, but i feel like i will be the only one who feels to take the risk of speaking up! I want to take action.

I never got bullied but i think it's horrible that children all around the country get bullying. children who do this must stop!!!because nobody deserves to get bulying and i am so sorry for people who get it.

When i was little maybe around the age of 5 i got bullied for the first time for having a guy friend and no girl friends. I was the skinny short little girl always sitting in the back as elementary came around because people called me 'anorexic' 'skeleton' 'ugly'. I would get picked on alot and i thought it was never going to stop. It did though around 7th grade. I still get name called for being to skinny but i have a voice now those people do it because if they're insecure they believe we should to and thats not correct. Dont stay quiet have a voice and it will all go away i promise. Im 5'7 now and do all these activities, they made me stronger and i made them weaker.

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.’”
