millions of kids are being bullied, including me, and we need to stop this ASAP! it doesn't make you funny or cool to bully someone. it makes you a jerk! i mean come on, people are KILLING themselves because of this. so why hasn't it stopped already? everyone needs to take a stand to stop this crap. me and many of my friends DREAD going to school every day because we know we're going to be made fun of by the "populars" just because we can't afford the stuff they have, and we're different. it's not fair to the kids and teens being bullied that have done nothing wrong. i hope people will stop this horrible act of stupidness! WAKE UP WORLD! stop bullying!

I have been bullied and still are by my sister. Family she is supposed to show me and guide me and instead she is trying to lure me to a depressed state in which leads me in a grave. Honestly it has been more tempting everyday but after reading these stories it has given me hope and courage to stand up to her someday so... thank you.

I believe in treating others the way you want to be treated and I despise bullying and its time for bullying to end starting with us taking it one step at a time. Also my girlfriend was bullied and want to take her life but before we became a couple it was i who stopped her and told her she was worth it and was worth being on this earth and so much she has to accomplish and dreams that needs to be born.

I have been bullied in the past- and even though it wasn't as bad then what others went through, IT SUCKS! I care about each and everyone one of you. No one deserves to get bullied. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Always remember: you will get through it! Currently my best friends are the ones who bullied me in the past. 

I love each and everyone of you💜💜.

I'm praying that it gets better,

Because IT WILL
