I Care Because

i get bullied all the time, i've been called just about every name there is...i know how  all of you are feeling, the bullying hasn't ended yet but i have hope that someday it will. i have an 8 year old brother and a 10 year old stepsister, they already get bullied and i can't stand it, so i'm trying to go into the schools and talk to the students there.  bullying needs to end, not a single person deserves to feel the way i /we do. i hope that everyone that gets bullied can someday look back and know that it only made them stronger...<3

I care about bullying because I've been through it myself. Sure, I know how it feels to say "I wish I didn't have to live through all this anymore." I know how it feels to want to take your life away with a single cut. Trust me, it's not worth it at all. So many people love seeing a smile across your face. Some people can't go a day with out seeing you. To someone in this world, you mean something greater than life it self. One life gone scars dozens more. Please, stay strong, speak out and stay alive. If you feel like no one in life cares.. I do.

It is simply wrong for others to think they are better than the defeneeless and innocent, i believe something should be done to end this cause that is affecting millions of kids/teens. Bullying in schools and Cyber Bullying is wrong.

No one deserves to be bullied, we are meant to be loved and adored.

When I was 6 years old, everyone made fun of the way I looked. They made sure I knew how ugly and stupid I was every day of my life. At that age, I already wanted to kill myself. When I turned 10, I started cutting myself. And as the world turned colder, suicide was an option I was willing to take.

Luckily, I found people who made me feel important. I'm 15 now and I feel much better. Stronger. And although not everything has been the same, I now feel that it is my responsibility to listen to others who have gone through my experience too. I just want to say that you are not alone and I love you very much.

of other innocent kids being bullied.
It's not cool cuz probably the kid

make a difference.

I am bullied. I always have been. I use to want tocommit suicide because it brought my self esteem down so low. I use to cut myself but now I want to help end bullying and show them that there is hope and they can find it just like I did. I show them hope through my music.

I've dealt with bullying for a lot of my life.  I've never fit in, I've always been different, I'm quieter, just an ideal target for someone hungry to  bully someone else....It hurts, like for those who don't understand this really it's just this super deep pain you feel.  I've had several kinds of bullying, verbal and cyber.  I blamed myself for so much of it when it never was my fault.  I've considered several times wanting to switch schools, but I always told myself it would get better.  And it has gotten better.  I've felt so down low I considered things I shouldn't have, and I did harm to myself also.  It wasn't worth it.  It took the pain away temporarily but it never helped much because I always wanted to do it again and again.  I eventually got encouraged by people who started to admire things about me, how there was no fear of being different, and not changing because of others want me to.  It was a rough journey but I think I have made it really far.  People really appreciate you being your true self, so don't let others bully you from it.  Stay strong my friends, and stand up and speak up for those afraid of it.  I never had it, but you can be that person who can help change so much.  You can be the life changer who could save someone from so much pain and misery.  I love all you random people who I don't know!  We stay strong together, united.

i don't like bullying it's so sad and I mean why do you do it? I want to stand up for the people who are getting bullied because this is not ok! And this is not a joke! Even a random tease is still bullying!

Alot of things have happened to me that are going on to others and I'm not happy about it. HELP STAND AGAINST THE BULLIES. STAND FOR THE SMALLER KIDS AND HELP THEM REGAIN CONFIDINCE!!!! NO ONE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN.

I care because I've been suffering from bullying for a very long time. Because of it, I've begun to self harm, as well as suffer from depression, anorexia and unrequited love. I don't want anyone to suffer the way I did. Nobody deserves to be tortured in this hurtful way.

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.’”
