I Care Because

I know what it is like to be bullied I was bullied for eight years before everything stoped.. wors can not describe the pain and frustration I feel when I hear of some one being billied. No one deserves it and now that I am going to a University, and I can see how much Anti-Bullying awareness there is and I help as much and as often as I can. I wish I knew of this when I was younger, but I love that there is more and more outlets for people. And the community is really uniting to fight against bullying.

I have been bullied my whole life by my friends. I am an athlete and my freshman year of high school I made the varsity lacrosse team. They all stopped talking to me saying that I've "changed". 8th grade, i went through hell. 6 months I went to school dreading every moment of it because my one friend for mad at me and then everybody else around me did. I didn't have anybody. They would text me and bully me and make comments to me in school. I went home crying every night. Bullying is something that cannot be taken lightly. We aren't perfect, noone is but for someone to bully them is just untolerable. You shouldn't have to be scared to go to school. Bullying needs to be stopped and hopefully sometime in the near future it will.

I care because I used to be a bully in elementary and I seen how I changed those people's life. In middle school I was normal and did not bully anyone. In high school I was bullied, a lot. I was confused why anyone would want to be mean to me when I was always so nice. The person I bullied the most is now my best friend. DONT BULLY

I care because no one deserves to be bullied. Everyone is trying to get true life and just because someone is not like you does not give you any right for you to be a bully. Everyone should be equal. Don't let anyone bully you, tell an adult you fell comfortable with or even a school counselor. Please dress how you want and act how you want with your friends.

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'm still getting bullied since 1st grade it drove me to not do my homework, and not care about anything or anyone especially myself. It sucks terribly and no one will do anything even my parents. It made me want to die but I'm over that now. It's great to have awesome friends to help you out.

i don't want to see others get hurt. i think that it's just stupid to bully anyone, since most people do it out of jealousy. well bullying won't change the fact that you're just someone who doesn't care about others but him/herself. bullying doesn't solve anything at all, but in order for the bullies to know that we all have to unite and stop them together. United we'll never be divided!

I care because i was bullied in my secondary school worst still i am not only bullied by my classmates by the senior and  my teachers.I was the one who was picked in the class the most because i was short and small size. My growth was slower then others by two and a half years.They will all  insult me with bad thing even in front of the teachers but none of them care they even laugh at me. people say stick and stone can break my bones but words never will that's is not real it hurt so much. i have gone through it and no one else should have ever gone though it like me. Do what's right and change what it is not . Bullying is not right and will never be right.

I have been bullied. There is not one day that I haven't thought about ending my life now. Ever since I was in Kindergarden I have been treated like this. Sad, huh? Teachers at my school try to act like they care. But honestly...I dont feel like they do. Almost nothing is enough. I am now on medications for anxiety and seeing a therapist. LIfe is aweful, or in my words, a haunted house. I wasnt to stand up and make a difference. This happens everyday and adulys aren't enought, this is not a joke. But yet most teens treat it like a joke. This really hurts, and I wont ever be the same me again. I know Im not alone, yet my parents always say "there are worse situations!" BUt really? It shouldn't madder..I mean I am their daughter. Or am I just some other story? I have recently started a club at my school to stop this. It hurts, I hurt, This needs to end!

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.

I've been bullied since 1st grade. They call me fish girl because I have eczema on my wrists that look like fish scales. Bullying really hurts and it needs to stop.

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.’”
