I've been bullied since my peers could talk. My wrists bleed every night. I don't want anyone to go through that. It hurts internally and externally. Help me.

I was bullied in elementary and it made my life very different than how it could have been but I`m changing how I feel about myself and forgetting how they made me feel. 

My baby sister is in jr high and she is bullied and she has done things because of it that hurt her. I can`t stand to see her hurt like that.

Natassja, 16, Idaho

My parents think bullying isnt verbal but it is.....everyday I get called faggit, gay, or some other mean think.....yeah I'm a little bit feminine.....yeah im a little bit over wait....but to call me fat or gay just to hurt me is cruel....my parents tell me to ignore but i cant....sometimes the things i wanna do to myself r things no 16 year old should b thinking about....bullying does hurt....im a victim.....someone needs to stop this bullying once and for all

Chase W, 16, Ohio

I was bullied when i was younger, really badly and it came to the point where i wanted to kill myself. Adults say you should tell them but it only makes things worse, yea they can try fix it but that doesnt stop them.
and adults also say to ignore them aswell, but whats that gonna do eh?
nothing thats what.
because of the bullies i have NO self confidance, feeel self concious and still get a teased sometimes but now im in highschool i realised who my real mates are and they stick up for me all the time, so id like to say a great big thankiesss to them :)

Megan, 12, Uk

I once was a bully, I will never forgive myself for the things I said and did. The past few years I have become a victim. It's the most horrible thing i have ever experienced.
Seeing people that think they're superior of others because of their size, dress sense, athletic abilities or confidence is just wrong.
It's a shame that I didn't realize the seriousness of bullying until I was faced with It.
But now I want to make a difference, only it's a little hard at my age. The thing i hate most is when others make stupid decisions like bullying and it affects innocent people, so i'm doing the best i can to stop that, i just wish more people would take me seriously.
