Since middle school I've lost all my friends and now i have none. It almost stopped in grade 6 when i met a girl named Kayla, but the mean popular girl at my school stole her away and all the other almost friends i had. I had to stay in the washroom for every single recess, waiting for the bell to ring because i didn't want to be a "loner" at recess. I was way too shy to talk to anyone at my school and the mean girl tormented me and gossiped about me. This year I still have no friends. Im confused and don't have any idea how to make friends. It seems like everyone in my school already has a friend/friends at my school. And I'm not exactly the mot attractive girl at my school either.

I care because bullying is REAL and the pain that comes along with it is REAL.  You would want someone to help/stand up if it were you.  Right?
    Stop bullying and stop the violence/pain!

I was bullied once and hated how it felt, I used to stay up all night crying over how i had to go back to school the next day. But I finally had enough and told my parents and the schools conseller. They say a problem shared is a problem haved and its true so dont bottle it up tell a friend an adult even a sibling just speak up.

I was bullied a few times by one of my so called friend and didn't like it one bit.  So I am joining the movement  and going against bulling!  YOU SHOULD JOIN TO!  YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've always been bullied about my weight. Ever since I was really really young, everybody thought it was funny and they would laugh. It still hurts to think about it today; almost 10 years later. I have really low self-esteem and I hate the way I look. No matter how many people say that I'm pretty, I have a hard time believing them because of all of the negative comments I've gotten in the past. 

Now that I'm no longer going to the same school as the bullies and things are a bit easier now, I know I'm not the only person out there being teased because of their weight. All of this needs to stop not only because it's unnecessary, but because life could be so much easier without all the negativity.

I have been bullied before and it does not feel good. I always pretended to be sick so I couldn't go to school and have to be bullied again. I know I am not alone but sometimes it feels like I am sometimes. I was only bullied verbaly. Online,txting. I would never bully someone. Sometimes I feel bullies are having problems so they think that if they feel bad, others should feel bad too so the bullies are not alone. I hate hearing news stories about when bullying goes too far the someone commits suicide. I always wonder if the person who did all that harm to them that they could take it all back. This needs to stop. We all need to come together and put this to a end and protect all of the students around the country, even around the would that  are bullied. Please. Before its too late when another life is gone from pain and suffering from bullying.  Sometimes at school, I wish I was dead from some of the things they say. I sometimes don't like the way I look. Please make the bullying stop!!!!!!!

Ever since i can remember i've been let down by my peers. I've got  psychological problems along with trust issues all because of all the lying and dissapointment i have faced not just at school but everywhere i go.  i've gone from hating myself to hating the world, and i know i'm not alone. bullying isnt something that fades over time either, its a lifelong struggle, and it needs to stop.

 I care because every single person should be allowed to just be themselves. I care because every single person should be allowed to grow and prosper in a safe environment - without fear. I care because all of you on this site have taken a step forward, shared your stories and are strong for doing so. I care because you are all willing to take a stand on bullying - a stand that is summed up in three words - Bullying Must Stop!

When I was in 6th grade, I had a problem with licking my got so bad that it spread to my chin and not only was it sore all the time...but i would get picked on for it. I would be called "the bearded lady" all the time. And it hurt me a ton. But, thankfully I had my three best friends to stand by me and help me through it. And we need to put an end to bullying because how many lives have to be lost to see the damages it does to people.

I was emotionally bullied by some girl in sixth grade. She didn't let one of my best friends hang out with me, talk to me, even look at me. The worst part was that she didn't even get punished for it. We need this to shop.

my sister was bullied in school and it has affected her throughout her life. Now I see kids at my son's school bullied and it seems like nothing is done about it.

When i got to 6th grade, Life started more difficult. I closest friends, and everyone would pick on me. I just fit in. I only had five real friends in my grade out of 40. In lunch, i had nobody to sit next too, other than my one best friend, and these 3 girls, that were really rude and used to pick on me. I would get teased, and there would be so many rumors about me constantly and i would be the last to be picked for partner activities. A girl told everyone i had lice one time. The only one that would stand up for me, was my best friend Angaya. I never knew what i would do without her. She gave me all the advice i needed. Unfortunately, she moved in 7th grade. On the first day of 7th grade, i sat alone at lunch. Of course, nobody even cared. I was so embarassed I spent most of the day going to the bathroom, and crying there. All i wanted to do was go home. It was that bad. the 2nd day got better. These 4 girls actually decided to sit at my table. 8th Grade was a little bit better. I started standing out, and talking to people and made more friends. But now, going into 9th grade, i have a lot more friends than i did. Thanks to marching band, and demi lovato.

my only child, a daughter, was bullied throughout school beginning in 5th grade.  I remember this because of a comment made by her teacher at the time who had taught  this grade for several years and had two older daughters of her own.  She said, "With girls, this is when begins."  I highly respect her, I only wish she could've told me when it ends.  Together, my daughter and I fought "city hall".  I met with teachers, principals, district superintendents, legislaters and ,quite often, state police.  I emailed the PA Dept of Education along with excerpts of threats from IM  More often than not, I was told I was making a "big deal" out of nothing.  That this is JUST part of growing up.  The district super told me  that barging into a staff meeting was 'terribly out of line' when he had repeatedly ignored my requests for a meeting.

To all kids and parents, the safety of our children is a right as a human being.  And when this safety is threatened, it's much more than a 'big deal'.  I'm an expert because I lived it through my daughter.  I felt the fear, had the nightmares and cried every, single day.

Thanks for recognizing bullying as the 'big deal' that it is.

In the 6th grade I was bullied. It may not have been the worst from of bullying but it was terrible enough. Iwas isolated by a group of girls. it was either you were part of their crowd or you were a nobody. Me and 2 other girls in my class were the only ones not part of their crowd. Even my only friend, my 1 best friend joined their group, and she started hanging out with them. They teased me about everything from the way I dressed to how I did my hair. I just remember my whole 6th grade year being horrible. On the weekends I would tell my mom how I didnt want to go back to school the next day once sunday came. They called me 'A-girl' becasue i got really good grades. I am takinga step to do something. Just the least bit of recogintion to what bullying does goes a ong way. I am ready. I am ready to win the fight against bullying. Enough is enough. Lets end bullying. We can accomplish anything together.

It has happenened to a friend because of a boy. There was the girl everyone wanted to be friends with , that meant more popularity yet more hate yet at the same  time more envy. My friend got into the clique and there after totally ignored me and our friends till one tragic day. A new guy arrived and the cool girl liked him, but instead he liked my friend. The girl found out and started tormenting my friend making her do bad stuff , like polishing her shoes or giving her, her pocket money or lunch box in the name of being a friend. things got out of hand and got out of the group after that people would cal her all sorts of names from whore to ugly to the  most stupid person in school. It really tormented her having that happening everyday for one full term. She almost killed herself over this thats why i care . More and more teens are going to kill themselves over this, and yet the bully does not even think its affecting them at all.

i know what it's like to be bullied. This is a serious problem and it should never be okay. I have been hurt too much, and people i know have been hurt too much. I know a girl who is 11 years old, and a girl poured soda all over her head. that is just unnecessary and rude. I strive each and everyday to make this world a better place. This is a very important topic that should not be avoided. Kids, talk to your parents or someone you trust, parents, talk to your kids too see if they are okay. We can end bullying! it starts with us, here and now!

I don't think bullying is a good thing. I think that their should be a law or something about bullying.

I've been bullied in 6th grade and now going to 7th and I just want to live a normal life in 7th grade but I cant and I want to change schools...I dont fit in, and people turned their backs on me....I wish someone could understand how it hurts.

I've delt with bullying for the past ten years, since I moved off a military base. At first I couldn't understand why people alway picked on me, then I found out it was becuase I was "weird". I'm in high school now and am suck with two girls in my homeroom who love to belittle me. No matter how much I hate it and want it to stop, I hope that as long as it goes on that I am the target becuase I can deal and move on eventually. Some people can't and I want to spare them from something that no one should have to go though.

My Name Is Rina, I have been bullied all my life, it started out as kids from the neighborhood, than Kindergarten  Through grade 7. Grade 7 was the hardest time for me because I would be called names and anybody who was my *friend*  would turn on me.         It eventually got so bad that I was in a state of depression and thought of suicide, My family didn't see any changes because I would hide my fear away from them.    I suffer now from a strange anxiety, I fear trusting people because I am scared that they will turn on me...     This Comment is getting harder, and harder to wright because the further I go on... the more memories flood my head, 
I feel that I need to break loose and show the world that I am not scared to stand up and fight for myself...  Thank you Demi  <3  you are my Hero.!

I had being bullied by facebook, they wrote offensive, horrible and painful comments, which make me want to die or not even go to school!! Even my suppossed "bff" didnt support me, and turn out to be against me and join to the ones who bullied me! :( This is my senior year and i hope the comments and whispers behind my back stop! I talked about this with a psicologist, she told me that what people say about me doesnt defined myself, it defines themselves, and they may have bigger problems and a sad story behind their masks! SO IM AGAINST BULLYING LETS STOP IT CUZ NO ONE CAN GIVE YOU A VALUE U DNT DESERVE JUST BECAUSE THEY DONT WORTH AT ALL

I cant stand being bullied, I am in Middle school and I dont think I can take much more of this, one girl came up to me and yelled "You know what would make life better for me and you?" And I said "What?" And she yelled "YOU OUT OF IT" I thought long and hard would life be better with out me? Possibly

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.
