I think one of the worst types of bullying is when it comes from your friends. When they leave you out of things, or comment on something that you are doing, or your appearence in a negative way. they are supposed to be the people that you go to to have fun, when the yare the ones that are hurting you the most, and msot of the time they dont even notice.

I'm getting targetted, too. However, even the small things can set me to steam because I have been bullied since grade school. If you've been bullied since then, do NOT trust them. They aren't your friends or anything. However, don't start the fights. If you do it YOU'RE being the bully

People just don't even know how bad it hurts to be put down every day.
And I think nobody should ever feel this way. Because people can start to self harm. Its a terrible feeling. I think this should all stop.
NOW.

I care because i know how it feels i was bullied and I still have the scars from it and i know people say "hey it will get better i promise" at the time i did not believe it, but now i do because people are sticking up for each other making others inspired to stand up and fight back trust me, it will be okay.
