I know bullying can be a traumatic experience and can occur on numerous fronts. No matter what, there is somebody that will be there for you. Sometimes these people may not be as clear at first, but, find somebody to talk too. I know that I have been able to help friends and family in the past because at the end of the day all they needed was somebody to talk to, and as a result the bonds that with those people that I have made are unforgettable. You're not a lone. Stay strong.

Don't give up! The awful things people say about you and do to you, you don't deserve any of those things and I'm sorry it is happening to you, but don't give up you are worth so much more. You are beautiful, smart, talented, and ton of other awesome things! :)

Bullying is wrong. Bullying puts people down. It keeps them from being able to show there full potential. Not only the victim but the bully as well. I wanted to take a stand bu=eczuse I know that it is not okay. I thaught if I took a stand it might make someone else take a stand. Than someone else, and so on. Until finally everyone knows and bullying may begin to stop. Stay strong!

I have been a victim of bullying and I understand  the difficulties and pain that it causes to many kids my age. I want people to know that they're never alone in their pain and we all care enough to try and make a difference:-)

Being bullied is hard. It can happen to anyone. The key is not to let it get to you. What truly matters is how you take it. You can either get angry and try to get them back OR brush it off and carry on with your life. It can't hurt you if you don't let it. Always remember that you're not alone. People care about you. Its okay to reach out.

In middle school I was bullied for being over weight and it was awful. People would calling me [email protected]$$ and beached whale. After going on for so long some kids told me I should kill myself. For being that fat and that I was a disgusting person for my weight.  After a year long of torment I began self harm and I was actually bulimic just to impress these people that I didn't even care. It got to the point where I shattered and felt completley worthless. I actually thought of killing my self because I didn't know what to do. It was just a very hard time and dark time. To this day I still struggle with weight even though I have lost a lot of it..I have no self esteem or confidence. I'm still dealing with depression. The physical abuse stops and heals but it's the words and things they say that you carry with you. They leave the worst scars.

bullying is hurtful, it hurts our self-esteem and our sense of belonging to a community or group. It is cruel, unproductive for all involved and maddening. It's been going on forever but it has to change as women's right to vote became a reality, as children's right did too, or as animal cruelty became a punishable crime. Living in a society where bullying is prohibited could change things from its core. Maybe one day in less than 100 years who knows, we will be able to live a life in which compassion is the most valuable human quality.

The saying, "Sicks and bones can break your bones, but words will never hurt" is untrue because words DO hurt.  It isn't right to be bullied, and even if it isn't physical, words by itself can hurt all the way past your bones.

because i know what it feels like to get beaten or picked on every day and i know the pain and i want to make a difference and stick up for my peers that are bullied so they dont have to expierence the pain i did.

Oh my gosh, there are so many reasons. I wasn't really bullied but I saw it happen way too often. ONCE is too often in my view. Anyway, ever since I was in First Grade bullies have made me angry. Not because they were bullying me, it was just because I saw what they did to other kids and it was just not right to treat another human being that way. I decided I was going to do something different and stand up for the victims of these punks.

I also knew that for me to just be mean to them was not what I wanted to do either. A bunch of these bullies were on the baseball team with me. I decided to write a note explaining how much they were hurting these innocent kids with their words and that just because they were popular kids with lots of friends didn't give them the right to hurt others. I taped a letter to every boy on my team's locker. A bunch of them told me they really didn't realize how much hurt they were causing other kids.

What I'm saying here is don't be a bystander.  I beg you to take action and be a hero to a victim of bullying. If you get that feeling you should do something, please do it! Even if you don't feel safe standing up to a bully, saying something to a victim literally might save their life! Be a friend to a kid who desperately needs one.

Everyone matters to someone. Whether it is to your family or friends, YOU MATTER! No one deserves to be bullied. Being different doesn't give someone the right to judge you. Nobody knows why you are different and they have no right to judge. Seeing all the bullying on social media makes me not want to have my future kids be in public schools. I hope we can all pull together and change this part of our society.

Since I was 8 years old I was constantly bullied in 4th grade because I was chubby and because the way I looked.  This was just the beginning. All throughout my school years I was spit at,  poked at,  yelled at, isolated, starred at, laughed at,  challenged many times, called names,  and I never seemed to have a friend. I would go home and cry at night.  I am now 19, and have a low self esteem,  am a very quiet and shy person with very little friends.  I am not sociable and can't seem to talk to people because I am afraid they won't like me and make fun of me instead. I tried committing suicide many times but never had the guts.  Bullying effected my life greatly,  I dropped out of school because of bullying.  I just wish that everyone will understand that their words do actually hurt and to think twice before saying or doing something to somebody.

Some might say that bullying is survival of the fittest, that bullying is only words that can cause no physical harm, it is being human, however I beg to differ.  Human?  H-honorable U-understanding M-motivating A-accepting N-nurturing.  This is what human means to me. We no longer live in Medieval, Barbaric times, so why do we act like it?  I am the lead chair for my company's Diversity & Inclusion team and we cover topics like this every month, the reason is not only to educate people but to keep this topic and others like it at the forefront, to keep it fresh in our minds so we may always remember that we are human and what that represents.

Nobody has the right to piont out anyone elses flaws. Just because you have the right of speech does not give you the right to insult someone or hurt someone in any way. It is wrong.

I think bullying needs to stop millions of kids are suffering from this terrible thing. Bullies are just kids who want to overpower others they want to make others feel bad about themselves. But don't let them bully you stand up for your rights and your friends. You are a human being and don't deserve to be treated like this. You are strong and everyone belives in you!!

I've been bullied, sexual harassment, sexual assaulted, name calling, threatened, and abused by mere words. I handled most of it on my own. But not everyone can stand up for themselves, everyone is different, and sometimes it takes a push from a friend to make it all better... Even if you have completely given up on yourself and the rest of the human race. Find something you love, something to live for! It's your life, and you control your destiny! Make it better, those mean things they say about you, are they true? You have power. You have heart. Smile :)

I was never a victim of bullying, but I've seen it happened. It hurts my heart to know that people get picked on for no reason because of the way they look, how they talk, what they wear, etc. If I ever see anyone get picked on, I always be the right person and tell the other person, No that not cool, or nice, and to even leave the person getting pick on alone. People have feelings and no one likes getting left alone. You really got to put yourself in the victim's shoes. Wouldl you like to get treated like that? How would you feel? But overall I'm just totally against bullying & I'm 100% all for the prevention center thing. It truely does make a difference in some peoples lives.

bullying is a mjor problem in our soceity today. I'm sure everyone in life has been bullied at least once. Whether you realize it or not. It made you feel some type of way after it happened. There has been alot of tragic things that have happen because of bullying. People don't understand what others go through in their individual lives and lack an understanding of what it can do. We need to stop and think about what we do sometimes. LETS MAKE A CHANGE!

I was bullied from sixth grade to ninth grade until I finally started homeschooling. I never understood why it was me kids liked to pick on. I don't like seeing other people treated the same way. I care because I was once in that position. It's horrible to wake up each day and have to go to school and be around people that laugh at you. It's horrible to think that you have something wrong with you just because kids at school hate you. Some people are just so brutal. It's really messed up how some kids get joy over making others cry.

Being bullyied is not "part of life". It is something that no one should experience. I know, because I've been bullied too. Luckily, the boy next to me stood up for me. If you see someone being bullied, stand up for them, please. It changed my life and now I am best friends with the boy that sat next to me. Stand up and be brave!
