I Care Because

I live in Brazil ... actually have not seen any similar institution here, bullyng really is horrible. 
I have always been weak and intimidated, the second series so far in six series. 
I found people like me here, there and thank you for the Teens Against Bullyng'''' 
I was very humbled ... last year I was on the court from college and from there everyone started booing me and the grades of all ages was a horror ... I can not say why, I cried a lot and felt escluido but when was close to seeing my father pretended to be happy and not tell anybody, no matter where I am the bullyng with me, I do not mind being different, I now have my best friend who is helping me at all, thank you for everything.

Bullying is a painful experience. I know because I've been through it and I have friends that are going through it right now at school. You never really fully recover from bullying and as you get older you'll probably start bullying so it doesn't happen to you. But it won't work. The only thing that will happen is that you will start getting bullied all over again. Bullying isn't cool, and it's actually dangerous and illegal. So many kids and teens have injured or even killed themselves because of bullies online and at school. And I know how they thought because I was headed down that road before. But I learned that ending your life over something that's able to be fixed with help and support of others. I just want to help end bullying and help lower the number of children wanting to harm themselves or are being bullied.

When I was bullied, everything was dark and I was lonley and afraid. But, then I realized that whoever tried to bring me down was already below me. And I stood up against bullying.

I am bullied and i know how much it hurts. I have been a bully so i know how it feels to bully, i still dont understand how girls can be so cruel and heartless though. Needless to say i will never be a bully and stick up for anyone who is being bullied !!!! Being bullied has ruined my reputation, taken away my friends, my freedom, and sanity. I have had to get help from professionals. Been on the verge of rehab several times. I've self harmed myself and by being bullied became depressed, suicidal, and given up hope on even going back to school. Bullies are hard to deal with, but just know your not alone! lets stop bullying for once and all. being a bully is not cool i know..... && being bullied is a serious thing I KNOW. its left me with scars and memouries i'll never forget that i wish i could.

A kid in my class is always being bullied. The boys don't listen to me when I say anything, they just try to flirt. I hate watching it happen and I just wish it would stop. I'm sure every bully would hate for what they do to other people to happen to them. We all deserve respect and happiness.

I care because I was bullied about my weight until 5th grade and then I decided to stop it without violence so I told my teacher and she didn't listen so I asked may I go to the counselor and then she said yes I told the counselor and she gave him in-school suspension and I was never bullied again my message to people that are being bullied is you have to stop him/her from making you feel bad because if you do that makes them feel good and just do it more

i care because i was a target for bullies. but im learning how to become my own person and stand up for myself. they call me names but i dont listen i know my friends will stand by me no matter what. so i can stand up and be who i want to be and not let bullies pull me to rock bottom.

In high school, it is so vicious; jungle-like at times. Everyone needs someone to talk to when they are being bullied.

Megan, 15, OH

I care about this a lot because was bully when I was in 1,2,and 3 grade I thought that when I move to a new house and a new school things would change but they didn't bully me because of my appearance. When I told my teacher she did nothing it when on like this in till fourth grade there I made new friends and help me. Now my friend is getting bully and I want to help her.

If you are being bullied please talk with someone, isn't your fault you don't have to be ashamed or, if you know someone that is being bullied please be kind with him and being his friend. That's will help a lot.

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.’”
