I Care Because

I currently not bullied in school, but I certainly see others being bullied. The kids at my school bully a special ed kid. He just wants friends, but the kids tease him while the kid doesn't know. The've trash canned him and push him around. I don't understand why they do this but I know they know its wrong. I've told them to not back off but they don't listen. Although I don't know either kids, it really urks me that they do this, and when I think about it I remember that there are kids being bullied for trying to be friends. I hope the bullies know that one day Karma will come and hit them 10x harder. TO ALL THOSE BEING BULLIED: KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND DONT LET THOSE FOOLS GET TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE 10X BETTER AND SUICIDE IS NEVER THE ANSWER.

Bullying has caused people to feel insecure and not beautiful the way they r 
Words stay in there mind forever !!!!! And it honestly scars u 
People get disorders and commit suicide when will people notice that bullying is a matter of life or death 
I want it to stop because no one , no one should have to go through that

I've been bullied since my 1st day of kindergarten. Whether it was of my looks, ethnicity , or the way I acted. I learned that not everyone is willing to help and some people might not even want to hear you out but I will and I'm here to fight against bullying. I went into a deep depression that just recently ended after a stint in the pscyhiatric hospital and after an attempted suicide and years of abusing myself. I know now that if no-one wants to help then you need to help yourself first, I'm not saying that no-one will help you but try to get help no matter what but if you do not succeed then you have to be the first to stand up and speak out! Not just for yourself but also for the people all around the world that are bullied each and everyday!

I was bullied when i was younger, really badly and it came to the point where i wanted to kill myself. Adults say you should tell them but it only makes things worse, yea they can try fix it but that doesnt stop them.
and adults also say to ignore them aswell, but whats that gonna do eh?
nothing thats what.
because of the bullies i have NO self confidance, feeel self concious and still get a teased sometimes but now im in highschool i realised who my real mates are and they stick up for me all the time, so id like to say a great big thankiesss to them :)
