I Care Because ...

Ever since I started middle school, it has been hard for me socially. I have a type of Autism and occasionally get the "you're so cool (not)"  behavior from girls and boys. Bullying is a serious problem at my school and no one has established a Bullying prevention program. This year I intend to fix this problem with the help and support of the friends I trust and the Teachers I admire.

I was bullied most of elementary school and during seventh grade--the most insecure time of your life. I never really let it get to me. I just hung out with all the guys because they didn't care if I talked about certain things or looked a certain way. I was one of the guys and they liked that. Especially in seventh grade. I'll admit I was heavy for my height, but that didn't stop me from feeling beautiful most days. No one really ever made fun of me for my appearance. Mostly it was during P.E. if I fumbled, the girls would yell at me, saying "Oh come on!" I tried never to show any change in emotion to them, because that would only be fuel to the fire. All the bullying I went through--name calling, what have you--I know it's the least amount a person can go through, but it made me stronger nonetheless. I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for two years, but I'm over that now and no one bullies me anymore. Seventh grade was the last time anyone ever said a mean thing to my face or behind my back (that I am aware) So don't let the bullying get you down. It won't last forever.

I'm just starting middle school and already, there's this girl who wants to beat me up... I'm afraid of going now. She was nicer last year, but she's changed now. I hope this sight can help anyone from being bullied.

I was bullied all throughout middle school and it was unbearable. I was humiliated everyday by my classmates and I felt so helpless and defeated. Although it hurts to remember that experience, it has also made me stronger person today. It pains me to hear of how many kids are being bullied today and how many are committing suicide because of it. To anybody out there who is being bullied: remember that you are a beautiful person and whoever is hurting you probably hates himself/herself inside that they can only get confidence by criticizing you. Bullying is cruel and hurtful and it needs to stop right now!

i have been sexually harrassed verbally and it is really hard to tell someone else about that because those bullies can scare you.  I don't understand how bullies live everyday knowing that they are hurting someone else.  I also care because some people don't know how to speak for themselves because of disabilites, but it still hurts them all the same.

I've never been physicaly bullied, but when i was younger I would always get verbaly bullied! I don't know how bullys can live with themselves kn owing they hurt someone in anyway! I think this is a very horrible way to live being hurt everyday! My mom would tell me when I was younger, "Just ignore them, sonner or later they will stop." But now i know that it's ok to tell an adult to help you! My little sister sometimes comes home crying because she is being bullied(verbaly), and i get so Angry! I want to stop bullying because It's NOT right and It doesn't feel good!

i was bullied when i was younger since the 1st grade. it stopped when i was in the 8th grade. from the 1st to the 8th grade life was rough. i used to go to school dreading the day ahead because of the hurtful things they would say. there were times when i asked my mom if i could stay home when she said no i shuttered at the thought of how cruel the kids would be the next day or just how cruel they were generally. i would cry myself to sleep or cry randomly during the day thinking of how tough school was for me. there were times when i was a little older (7th/8th grade) when i thought of suicide or cutting myself just to relieve  myself from the pain but i thought that wasnt a good idea because that would show weakness and i didnt want them to think that they could do this somemore i left that school though. now in high school i get a fresh start and try to forget the hurt that was caused by these people. im no longer bullied. but people in my school are. when i see someone bullied i stand up for that person but still afraid that i might get bullied too. i dont get bullied in the end. i try to prevent this when i see it happening but people dont learn. this needs to stop.

Being bullied hurts. You feel alone and helpless, but remeber you are not alone and you are not helpless. I can't count the times and reasons I've been bullied. Sometimes it's gone to far, especially when someone is killed. RIP Pheobe and to all those who have died because they were bullied. You will always be loved and remebered.

I care because i was verbally abused by a boy in my class during eighth grade year. When the teacher would leave our class to go do something he would call me terrible names, names that i had never heard of. This happend everyday from almost the beganing of the year to almost november. I didnt want to go to the teacher because i thought the boy who would tell me all those bad things would think i was a tattle teller. Then one day i just snapped and tried to beat him up for saying all those things. I was devistated, i couldnt believe i tried to do that to someone. Then when i talked to the principle i told her that was not how i should have handled it. Next time something like that happens i know to go to the principle for know on.  Its a hard thing to go through and no one should  go through any type of bullying or abuse.

i was always bullied about my weight, i let their words get to me, i began to eat more. it just seems like most people do not know when to stop. i was also made fun of because of the clothes i wore. sometimes i didn't want to go to school so i would fake sick. i never had a lot of friends, sometimes i think they were only my friends because they felt sorry for me. i know a lot of kids that commited suicide cause over issues and bullying. i was at a turning point of commiting suicide also tried cutting myself cause i was never happy with the things i had or with the person i was. i turned to my sister she helped me get through it all. and i am very greatful for that. i care because i don't want anyone to feel like they don't belong.

'' It seems like so many people don't take bullying seriously. When will they finally understand the consequences of bullying someone? I was bullied a lot in elementary school for my height, and even religion! Sometimes I would lock myself in my room and just cry myself to sleep, it was that bad. Lesson to be learned: Bullying is NOT a joke, and we all need to work as a team to fix this issue. So that's my story, everyone!

well, i care because i was bullied for a year and i hated it......It's wrong when someone think that they will better than you by beating you down. I'm glad that the person who bullied me didn't go to far because there are too many people in this world beeing bullied that can end up dead.
I will never understand why someone beat others just to feel good with themselves, it's really stupid and wrong.
Just remenber that you can't keep silence because is worse for you, be strong and always count with your family because they are an awsome help.

i'm getting bully all the time. i just  want it to stop so i don't have to think about it anymore. i have to go to thearpy and that dose help a a little bit.      I don't want anyone else  getting hurt . so lets put a stop to it.

erika - 13 - ab

I have always felt the need to be different and students at my school don't  like that. Everyone blends in and molds together, but the people who ruin that are bullied. I was one of the people who ruined it. I would get so upset that I would cut myself and find any excuse to harm myself. I still don't blend in perfectly, but I've learned to embrace it because that's what life is all about. It's about being different. My heart and all my love goes out to Phoebe and her family and any other person who is bullied

my little brother gets bullied all the time and this is his first year in high school. I am very worried that he could get hurt and so I talk to him a lot about being safe in school. It is sad that a child has to be afraid to go to school. I absolutely have no respect for people who bully but they need to be understood so they can be stopped. I caught two boys in lunch picking on my brother and I confronted them. They did not have much to say. I care because I love children and they shouldnt have to feel fear and teachers should stop looking the other way.

I care because there are so many misconceptions on what bullying really is. It's not just the physical abuse. It's the psychological/mental , cyber and emotional aspect as well. There are so many mean people in the world, especially at school among teens, and so many cliques where girls single each other out of groups that's it's sickening. I had a really rough year in the 10th grade this past year because girls I thought were my friends really weren't. It was a horrible year for me, mostly because of their psychological , cyber and verbal bullying .  I'm still struggling with it now,  especially since one of the girl's mom said some hurtful words to me on facebook. i'm seeking thearpy. Hopefully it'll get better.

The reason i care is that i got bullied. I got bullied from a freind boyfriend and she was going along with it. He threaten me that he was going to beat me up, he called me fat hourse. i was so scared. i do care because i want to end bullying for good. Because i am kinda scared now and but it not going to stop my life from one person to hurt me. 
This is my story why i care.

Kayla - 15 - CA

I was bullied a lot before highschool, by someone who I thought was my friend. I didnt have anyone to stand by me while being teased, I didnt have a friend to comfort me. I use to cut, and I contemplated suicide, and attempted it, twice. After I got out of middle school, I left my bully "friend" behind. I realized how much I would've missed if I committed suicide. I would have never of met my real friends and I would have devestated my parents. I have been through so much teasing, and it hurts me so much to see other people being bullied, especially to the point of feeling theres no way out except to take your own life. That is why I care

My best friend was always bullied from the first day I met her, which was in third grade. That's why we're even friends. Two years ago, during gym, some girls came over and started to call her ugly and stuff. Now, in our little group of friends, I'm known as the one who'd stick up for my friends, and my BFF my little SISTER. So when these two girls started to mess with her, it killed me inside. The look on her face is what did it. I nearly hit one of them with my shoe. And sometimes she feels as if other people are using her. She's still bullied today, but by boys. They call her ugly, say she wears too much make up, and it kills me to see her cry everytime we talk. I realized I don't want anyone else to be inthe same situation as her. That's why I care.

Michi - 13 - IL

i still get bullied allot because everyone thinks im dumb well im not! i may be left behind but the chances are of me being dumb is that no one is perfect and i have ralised that so if anyone calls me dumb all i kno is that its gonna make me a better person .......but my opinion to bullying is never get down always stand up for yourself be strong confident and the world shines on your future today! dont care what the bullys say!  just ignore them and walk away...ThankYou

in middle school this group girls started bullying three of my friends and they had no reason why. it started getting worse and worse. one of them even hit one of my friends with her jacket! and on  another occasion, i saw them cursing out one of my friends and in class i asked her if she was alright, but she said about another time where they kept toching her hair and she had no choice but to call them off. she started crying, but when class started, she got better. all of them should have went to the teacher, but they decided to stick it out. the next year, a few of them moved away and the bullying stoped. it hurt me seeing my friends being bullyed, but they were so brave that they inspired me to be brave too, to always think of the positive. not of the negative.

When  will it be enough for people to realize, that hurting people isnt the answer. Jealous, Anger, Depression, Family Affairs and much much more drive people to bully. But why! It happens in the hallways in the bathroom locker rooms facebook face to face gossiping. And it brings me to tears to hear about so many percious lives being lost because people are careless about their actions. im constanly bullied through school and yeah the teachers talk about it but they never do anything about it!!

Emily - 13 - ca

I had a best friend who was bullied. She was embaressed by it. She'd deleat text messages without showing them to anyone, and pretend to even me that the things people would say to her walking down the hallway never bothered her. I noticed and asked it about her one night when she was over at my house. She got very emotional and started telling me all thease horrible things i never knew people were caipable of saying. She made me promise not to tell anyone and so i didnt. Things started to go down hill for her when i left last summer for a two month vacation with my family. She had no where to turn to because she was to proud to tell her family and i was her best firend. I told her to call me whenever she needed to talk but that wasnet enough. She went into a deep depression and started to physically abuse and cut herself and i had no idea it was that bad. I never new teenagers could be so mean. I didnt know my firend, the girl who could shake of anything, could be made to feal so bad. I told someone after that and my friend got help. It was hard to do. She hated me when she found out i told, but later she thanked me. No one should go thorough what she had to. Thats why i care.

I was bullied most of my life. I hated the way i was and at a point wanted to isolate my self from everyone. I was bullied because of my weight, and that hurt me very much. I wanted to change the way i was to have friends. But the same friends i had chosen to be with, helped me through it, and now i dont care that im skinny, im healthy, beautiful, happy, and proud for being me and noone else. I want to help those who have been through the same position as me. Because i know if my life became a living helll through that situation in my life, i dont want anyone to go through what i did.. My own friend is gong through that, and Im proud that I can help her, because I went through that.

Krysten - 14 - NY

My Bestfriend has been bulied her whole life. No one likes her because she's different but I love her for the reason of her being different. Everyone would act like she didn't exist and just scream at her and push her punch her and all. I put a stop to it I threatened everyone by telling them i'd go to the prinicipal.They all stopped and let her be the way she is. I find her an amazing friend no matter what!

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!
