I Care Because

I've been bullied since I started preschool. And it was all because I didn't have the coolest bows in my hair. I'm in 7th grade now, and I get bullied worse than ever. All but two of my friends have left me. Ever since I told them about my depression and self harming issues, they have been calling me names and made me feel like I'm not worth anything. I care because no matter what, there will be people who don't like you. But I care about you, more than you think.

 I am active in my school with a program called the buddy program. the buddy program at my middle school has the eighth graders helping and mentoring the 5/7th graders. the eighth graders are called the big buddies and the littler kids are called the little buddies. I am so excited for the fall so I can get started. working with them and helping to make my school a better place. For most of the little buddies you are one of their only friends so you need to be there for them. once I herd that you could sign up right now me and 2 of my closest friends said that when we got out of class we were going to the office to sign up.

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.

I am a victim of bullying. I have been bullied since 5th grade I am now a senior. I want to help others and let them know they are not alone. I am actually going to be going to college to learn phycology and help teens get through that rough time. In 2010 I tried to commit suicide because it had become so bad, I don't want to see any teen go through what I went through.
