I Care Because

I have been bullied a few times . Nothing too bad . But after getting bullied by these 2 girls that were a year older then me . . I was too scared to go to school . Not even an hour into school I could last . I was crying and in tears by 2nd hour . But since then , everything has been on the easier road for me . Until 7th grade begun , I lost friends because of obnoxious rumors . I was hurt . I was so sad when I went to the bathroom and noticed that there were writings in there about me . I was heartbroken . But now that that was settled . I support everyone in my school . And I try my best to help my friends and family recover from depression or recover from the state of being bullied . <3

There's a guy that Iknow that is getting bullied online. I want to help, but whatever I do, this other guy wont stop being mean. I just wish that nobody got bullied. It just feels really sad.

Other kids started to bully me about 4 years ago. They started to call me by names. Those names hurt me really much. Everyone starts to call me by the name. At the start only my classmates called me with it. Then everyone i knew in the school. Then people in my new school. And now.. Almost 70 different people had called me with the name. It really hurts and i dont know how i can do this. 2 years more an i can finish my school and forget all my schoollife. 7 years of being called.by a mean name. I often cry myself to sleep..

my little Sister is only 8 and is is really suprising how young bullies can be as my Sister get's bullied. It really annoys me as she is such a sweet little girl and these other kids that are really mean and think that they are amazing gang up and verbally abuse her, and sometimes even hit her and she comes home crying and covered in bruises. It makes me sick and my family want to put a stop to it. These bullies who think that they are strong really are NOT. Bullying is a sign of weakness as you have to make others feel bad to make yourself feel good. I want all of these innocent children to have a positive experience in school and to have self confidence, not trying to miss school because they want to hide from bullies. We need to do something about it. That's why I care.
