Bullying scars can go , but the me mark they leave on your life is  sad.. We are all equal  no one is better. I mean when you die all you take is your work, if your work is bullying then you have done NOTHING in life. WE ARE ALL ONE. the lunch lady, Demi lavato,  my freind, the King.................. It is not who we are it is what we do. So I am Officiaally against bullying.

"I am being bullyied every day by my So-Called Friends and I feel like I want to kill myself sometimes from being bullied so badly.But I won't because I got to do something about it...

My sister has been bullied since 6th grade, and she doesn't deserve it.

I have been bullied. I was bullied all through middle school, and even a bit in high school. I always knew I was different, but I never thought people would make me feel like less of a person for it. It did ruin my self-esteem. It has led me to have trust issues. Some of the people that bullied me were my "friends" at one point, but most of them were people in my classes, or at lunch, or that I had to pass everyday in the halls. It sucks because people make fun of you for things that you cannot help or change about yourself. I can take a joke, but sometimes people take things way too far and it becomes hurtful. I used to feel really good about myself until this started. You have to stand up for yourself. Trust me, it's worth it. Now that I am in the next chapter of my life, I feel a lot better. I am stronger. What I went through made me so much stronger.

Just yesterday a friend of mine came talking to me because a group of kids his age had been picking on him, and making fun of him, meking stuff up about him, I know how hard that is, I've been through it to, for the last 9 years, until a fwe months ago, when I found out Teens Agains Bullying, it changed my life knowing I'm not alone, I finnaly stood up for myself and it stopped, so now I use my experience trying to help others, and encouraging them to speak out and to defend themselves. Be Strong! I'm with you!

I was bullied by mean girls in junior high/high school nearly a decade ago. They spread nasty rumours, tortured me at school and even went so far as to bully my little sister just because she was my sister. They were relentless and made every day of going to school a terrifying and incredibly depressing experience for me. I felt like there was no end, that I was worthless, and that life would never get better. For a long time, I let them win. 
I care because I am now 27 years old. I graduated high school, moved away to go to university and discovered a life where girls like that didn't matter. I am finishing my final degree, I am engaged to be married, and I have a wide circle of friends and family that love me. 
To this day, I have still encountered bullies. They are always around. But what I have learned with age and experience is that BULLIES are the ones that don't belong. Bullying has no place in our society, and hopefully with time and reflection we can all learn to stand up and ignore it for the toxic and useless activity that it is.

My friend got bullied alot in elemantry school. She is a sweet person  so it made no sense to me. I hate bullying, being a victim myself. I am trying to stop it and it is hard. But with everyones help it can be accomplished. Bullies try to be cool, but anyone who bullies isn't truly cool.

After reading about Phoebe Prince in Seventeen , I felt so disgusted with people . It seriously made me cry to hear something awful such as this . And the worst part is I can relate to Phoebe . I'm currently pregnant , going into my senior year and I am now judged and bullied by so many people . I go on this site , formspring and people comment and harrass me annonymously and tell me horrible things every single day . I used to cry myself to sleep and I even started cutting and hurting myself . But I have learned to stop all of that thanks to my amazing friends and supportive family . I wish Phoebe was told the things I have been told . I wish I knew her so I could give her a huge hug and tell her everything will be alright , and that their opinions don't matter . My mom tells me all the time that people only do those things simply because they are jealous and I will continue to believe so because it makes me feel so much better . At times I still cry , especially when I am alone . But knowing that I have the support I need gives me enough strength not to do anything stupid or horrible . All my love goes out to Phoebe and her family . I hope they stay strong . -Carleigh , 17 , WA

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 care because I was bullied a lot when I was younger. I was physically and verbally abused everyday and even when I changed schools because of it, I still was bullied at the new school. When I was twelve, I started cutting because of the past and I still do... but I don't want anyone to have to endure bullying. There is hope. I hope everyone knows that.

Steff, 14, CA

When I first started being bullied it ruined my freshman year. I have always been apart of the popular crowd and I had never been bullied in my life. But it got so bad I wanted to switch out of a school that I love. I never want anyone to have to go through what I went through. I care because NOBODY deserves to be treated poorly. I wish I knew how to figure out how to help the cyber bullying cause.

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.’”
