I Care Because ...

I was bullied from 4th grade up till now, and i know how hard it is to deal with. Being laughed at every day at school, being called horrible names (that I won't repeat); having garbage thrown at you, people calling you "ugly". It destroys your mind, and affects your outlook on life. Honestly, it helps to do your best to ignore it. Bullies are insecure, so they make others feel like crap. Some of them ave problems as well, they just lay their problems on us. It is important to realize it will pass. It will always pass. You need to stay as strong as you can.Talk to someone, write in a journal. Do not bully back, be as nice as you can to them so they will stop. I hope this helps somebody.

There are people who wake up each morning with dread, scared to go to school because they fear what might happen. Will they be teased on the bus? Kicked down in the hallway? They won't know till the go and find out. It hurts them emotionally and physically when they enter a building they no longer feel safe in. They may feel as if they have no one to talk to or rely on. So when you ask me why I care. Just remember that your best friend could be the person I'm talking about. Or even you. It is a choice to be a bully. It was never a title to deserve. Be the best person you can be.

I have been bullied, I have dealt with the pain.. I have been called things, I have been pushed around and I have first hand cried myself to sleep at night. I will not tolerate anyone who bullies others.

    I care because I have been bullied in the past. I still go to school with the girls it's not as bad as it was because I told on them but it still hurts to look at them because the memories really hurt. The bullying got so bad at one point that I started hating myself and that led me to start doing bad habits and that just made it all worse. I felt like no one cared when in reality people did care. Bullying is a close subject to my heart because I know how it feels and its not easy. No One deserves to be bullied! Thats why we (this generation needs to make a change!) I believe we can do it if we work together. '')

I care because I have a lot of friends that got bullied and I stood up for them and I get teased for it and get called names from a lot of people and I'm trying a lot of ways to stop bullying, All the time when I see someone getting pushed around or being called something that is not nice I report it and I have been awarded at my school for the most person who stood up and I did not want the award because I am doing what I want to stop. (Before you say something or do something to someone think of what you would feel like if you got called that or if someone did that to you.)

I have seen bullying everywhere I go, and have even been bullied myself. It's a terrible feeling and I don't wish that upon even the worst people in the world. When someone is bullied they fell weak, useless, worthless, and a waste of space. People don't understand just how much they can effect a person. I simple joke could ruin someone's life because the person the played the joke on took it seriously and committed suicide. No one truly knows what goes on when someone isn't in public, they could be abused, homeless, dealing with a sick relative, or even sick themselves. We shouldn't be so judgmental towards others over silly gossip or how a person dresses. We should either leave them alone, or actually talk to them to get to know them. Bullying should have never existed in the first place and completely disgusts me to hear and see others being treated badly over nothing.

I wasn't just bullied up until 7 grade but also my friends were bullied let me say not the best experience I kept all my emotions to myself and painted on an ok face I was also cyber bullied over winter break i started to cut I finally stopped because my friend said it was ok to be me I then it was the time were I found out my sexuality I'm bisexual and then I started liking my friend I still like her but point is if you see someone getting bullied be an upstandered be a thermostat not a thermometer again point is don't be the bully.

I know how it feels i was bullied since kindergarten all the way tru high school i was the girl that would sit in the bathrooms just waiting for the bell to ring to go back to class or to go home i was called disgusting names i was laughed at and even punched and it hurts just to think that anyone out there is going tru what u went tru no kid deserves to eat alone to cry in the bathrooms no kid deserves to be called fat or ugly or any mean names. No kid deserves to get beat up just because they are different! There were several times that i wanted to kill myself because of what i went tru everyday at school but thank god that i love living that i never did it now im happily married and i have a 5 yr old daughter that is in kindergarten  who i ask everyday how her day went? Was anyone mean? Was she mean to anyone? I ask questions and i explain to her that no one deserves to get bullied that we need to show respect and kindness to EVERYONE! I have hope that bullying will end!!!

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 judgements of "normies". Thanks to PACER's, I have been able to feel accepted.

Bullying is wrong. If you bully then nobody will be friends with you.
If your being bullied you should never bully back.

I have been bullied my whole life. When I was young I never told anyone, family or friends, it sure hurt my self esteem later in life. Due to my bullying I have a hard time socially. Please , if you are being bullied, tell someone, they may not be able to do anything, but at least they will know and can help you get through the pain with love. When I was bullied in elementary school there was a janitor named Mr. Jones who helped me out of some bad bully situations, he could have turned away. If you see someone being bullied, please help them. Thanks.

I care because I know what it feels like to be bullied because I was once bullied and it is not a good feeling. I care because I am here for support and I think everyone should feel appreciated and loved.

This is ridiculous conduct. And never accepted. Its got to stop: the cruelty and violence. It destroys lives both physically and mentally.

I know what it feels like. STAND UP TO BULLYING NOW

I know what it is like to be bullied in high school. Not physically. It got to the point where this girl was saying things to me that I could never repeat, and it went so far that I did not feel comfortable going to class. I NEVER want anyone to have that feeling of being unsafe or scared to go to school. I know that feeling and just knowing that kids go through worse acts of bullying scares me. What is the world coming to?

you never really know what is going on in someone else's life & bullying whoever only adds on to whatever situation they're going through.

I was bullied in elementary school and middle school. It was a very hard time for me and I felt so lonely. But recently I joined Unify Against Bullying ! Check it out and do the unify selfie challenge ! It's a great program.

Just saying, i'm not being bullied, but I care about other people too. 

Shut down bullying!
Take it down!
Other people matter too!
People who bully will be stopped!

I am an educator preparing pre-service teachers for the teaching profession. Other than the moral and ethical reasons for why I care, there is the academic reason too. In short, if a student in our classroom is overwhelmed with anxiety because they are being bullied, there can be little valuable learning taking place for them.  Consequently, their needs are not being met emotionally or academically. Valuable time for the learner is wasted as well as for the student doing the bullying. Attention must be given to each individual situation so that the bully is educated on acceptable behaviors, the bullied is provided with skills to help with standing up for themselves, and the bystanders need support in finding their voice and reporting when a student is a victim of bullying.

Every name that a kid has been called has lead them more and more into depression.

Ive been bullied and I know how it feels when you go home and spend hours in the mirror, pointing out every flaw, and keeping track every time you find a new one. I know how it feels when you spend nights in the bathroom crying your eyes out. how it feels to be in a hospital because you are a "self- harmer" and once people find out they call you an attention seeker. I want other people to know what happens and I don't want other people to go through it. im still going through it at 10th grade. I spend hours in front of the mirror trying to find something to wear that I wont be judged for. if I wear dresses Im a hoe, if I wear sweatpants then i'm lazy and a hoe. either way I lose. I need help. that's why I am on this site. I feel lost and I don't know where to turn. I just want other people to know not to give up. you might be going through it, but find those people who care. ive done it all, self harming, eating and purging, all of it, and it doesn't make me feel any better. turn to people. play to your strengths. draw, write, sing, do what makes you happy and distract yourself. and if you are not being bullied, stand up for those who are being bullied. don't give up people!!!!

i want to help others like me.I want them to know that they are not alone.
right know i am studying to be a social worker which i know can help make a change about bullying.
i hope there is also an agency which is open for bully victims ,which they can develop themselves through the help of persons  that was also like them.I was dreaming to help people like me by building an agency in each schools that can care and protect each bully victim from the ridicule of others.

...I work with a bully who targets people she sees as inferior, helpless, or vulnerable. I care because bullying hurts everyone: the target, bystanders, even the bully herself. I care because bullies ruin careers and lives. I care because bystanders in the throes of denial or fear often become unwitting participants and enablers. I care because people who would otherwise never bully gang up with the bully on the target. I care because people and organizations who have the power to put a stop to the abuse and harassment become bullies themselves when they blame the target. I care because bullying can happen to anyone at any time. I care because bullying is not against the law. I care because this insidious diseased behavior is as old as humanity, and it has to stop.

Not only was I bullied when I was young because I had long hair and was pretty, but I just found out from my granddaughter, that she is bullied in her school all the time. My granddaughter has a disability. It hurts her alot. I am trying to assist her in getting through being bullied. There should be more posters in schools all over the United States against bullying, but there needs to be more conferences to getting the word out. Also did you guys know that bullying also goes on in the work place. It has been happening for years. Posters should also be placed in every work place. You would think that adults wouldn't act this way, but they do. Its sad.

I care because it hurt my feelings and it wasn't fair.

I care because I have been bullied my whole life. I have experienced firsthand what bullying does to a person. I was bullied for being the ugly girl with acne and a "flat chest", and later continued to be bullied for being the pretty girl who blossomed. Women AND Men should be EMPOWERING each other, not calling women deragatory names and treating each other with disrespect. 

Bullying does not just destroy a persons self esteem, it can destroy a persons LIFE. People now are being bullied for ALL TYPES of things. I believe the public have become more aware of bullying now compared to 15 years ago when I was in high school, however I also believe that unfortunately bullying is happening MORE and MORE. Unfortunately bullying will always happen, but if only ONE person can be helped from incredible organizations like PACER then its all worth it.
