I have been bullied for years & due to this I'm being homeschooled.  My mom tried to help but people don't communicate and nothing was done.  I feel alone and angry.

March 3, 2013 my best friend committed suicide due to past bullying. I've been bullied since kindergarten. All of my friends have been bullied at some point in their lives and we have made it a mission to stand up for anyone that's being bullied. Anytime and anywhere... I know how it feels to feel alone and worthless , so to anyone that feels that way, or even if they don't , I'm just here as a friend to anyone and everyone.

Bullying is not right to people because some people have things going on in life.

I go to lunch every day and no matter where I sit there is always, Alex, he throws food at me and tells me I have no friends. He really embarrases me and hurts my feelings. But I don't know any adult I trust so I'm coming here to learn who i can tell.

Bullying is the worst thing that happens in school. People say that words dont hurt people, but thats not true, words can hurt more than pushing someone. please stop bullying. think about other peoples life. your ruining their lives!

Ever scince  I  was  in  pre-school  I   was  bullied.  One  day  someone  took a plastic knife  t o school  and  told me they  were going to  kill  me. She  ended up cutting  my  t shirt.  I found ways  to cope  like  listning to  music.

Some stories I hear are people who have been bullied for years and years. I've only been bullied for a year. Yet, I am so affected by it. I was just talking to my friend over texts and all of a sudden a girl started to text me from their phone. I've been called ugly, anorexic, manly, a fish, easy, and they told me I should kill myself. Then she gave my number to her friends who then started to also call and text me the same thing. Bullying hurts. And all I needed was someone to talk to.

my little sister got bullied. She is six years old, I have been teased about my religon. My little sister was kicked, hit, threatened, restrained, forced to eat non-edible things (like rocks, dirt, bugs, dirty popsycles) and told us nothing. We finally relized why she kept telling us she didnt was to go over their when our mom said to walk her over. I am making sure she dosent even get to look at that girl again

I care because in 7th grade, I was absolutely tortured. I will never be the same. It's been three years, and I still wake up at night, crying, because of what they did to me. I was beaten, made fun of, pushed, hit, stabbed, etc. They stole my clothes in the locker rooms during PE, and they would soak them in toilet water and cut them up. They trapped me in lockers because I was so little. (I now have claustrophobia). They gave me swirlies which scared me to death because my aunt tried to drown me when I was four, so have always been scared of water. I was depressed, and had nobody. But today, I am a survivor. Though, at times, I feel like a victim, because it still haunts me, I know that I am past that, and I am so much stronger. NOBODY deserves to be bullied, and I am here because I want to help put a stop to this. Depression, guilt, anger, suicidal thoughts, being scared to go to school.. Kids don't deserve to go through any of that. I want to help kids across the world who are being bullied, who are living a constant nightmare. I want to let them know that there is a light at the tunnel. That life is worth living, and things will get better. I don't ever want anybody to be treated the way I was. I shared my story, to let you know that things can get better, and they will. You are not alone. EVER. And you are loved. <3

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
