I Care Because

I know what it's like to be bullied. I was bullied growing up because I was never good enough, pretty enough, thin enough, etc.
They say that people who bully others do it because they're insecure and it makes them feel more confident. I don't understand how. They (bullies) know what it's like to feel deeply insecure so how does knowing that you're making other people feel just like you do make you feel better about yourself?

I hate seeing people treated horrible.I just want to see peace in this world.Now a days kids and teens are being bullied,to take their pain away they do drugs,alcohol,or even suicide.I don't want people being insulted,bullied,or annoyed be people Nast comments.
They have all their life's to live for and they don't want to spend their childhood badly.That is why I would like to make a difference in this world

Me and my brother both have atisum and bullying has effected us greatly I was picked on so bad I would not make any friends school was like prison were the weak stay weak and the strong get stronger. One time the police were involved because a kid threatened to kill my brother if he did not give him money. Now we both have help and a have a group of amazing friends. But I don't want anyone to go what we had to go threw. I am now writing a fiction Noval called thunder rose and am happy. So please I hope this ends soon. :(

i was and still am being bullied. i spent time off school thinking about crawling into a hole because of how much it hurts. then i was on youtube and i found a demi lovato video telling me to go to teensagainstbullying.org and it made me feel better to know there are others who feel just like i do. i decided to put all the pain and hurt into songs and sing through it. my confidence was up until someone commented on a facebook picture telling me to go die because i read. i shouldnt have to put up with being treated like this and neither should you. take a stand because you are not alone. together we can stop bullying.
