You are more than what bullies call you. You are who you are, but you are not the mean names they call you or try to categorize you as. You are better so don't let them get you down. You are nice, friendly and fun, and smart. Talk to someone you trust it will help because it helped me when someone called me names on the internet. I used to believe her and it put me down but i wont put me down because of someone mean.

I care about bullying because I've been through it myself. Sure, I know how it feels to say "I wish I didn't have to live through all this anymore." I know how it feels to want to take your life away with a single cut. Trust me, it's not worth it at all. So many people love seeing a smile across your face. Some people can't go a day with out seeing you. To someone in this world, you mean something greater than life it self. One life gone scars dozens more. Please, stay strong, speak out and stay alive. If you feel like no one in life cares.. I do.

I was bullied and hurt and depressed in high school. It's not always outright. Sometimes people are quiet about it, people are cruel. I have little sisters and a two year old daughter that I want to grow up in a kind world and a better world.
