I Care Because

i dont want people to feel like they have no purpose in this world. everyone has a purpose. everyone has a voice. and everyone deserves to be heard. whether your 12 or 22 or any age you are you deserve to feel loved and cared for and to have hope. bullying hurts. it makes you feel alone. it makes you feel sad. and if we can stop bullying i hope that self harm or suicide or self harm could decrease or stop. nobody deserves to be hurt. speak out. tell them your story. stand up for yourselves or others. be proud of who you are. no matter what anyone else thinks. your beautiful and your worth it. stop bullying today.

Up until 11 years old I have been bullied at school when I was little. Even if now I'm over it, I remember how it was really hard coming to school and I am willing to help victims with this because I dont think other people actually understand the gravity of it. My friend once asked me why victims of bullying dont tell anyone, and so I realized people are really ignorant about it because they didn't experience it. It's actually really sad

I have been bullied in school most of the time. I have been bullied because I'm ''good girl'' I don't smoke, I don't drink... Because I'm ''Too cute'' and nice to people... Well I think it's so stupid, but it makes you a different person. You become very mad and mean and angry... That's so sad to me, so I keep trying to be ME. love you all.
