I Care Because

Hello, my name is Thain'm from Brazil, here in my school we are doing work on bullying, and the teacher gave me this site.
Not only the USA that children and adolescents sofem with bullying, it is common in Brazil as well, so we're doing the work against bullying.

at my school if you live in a trailer or if you are over a 1oo pounds then you are bullied. And i am both . i am lucky because i have friends and i get good grades but it would be nice to not have to stand on the side of the hall so i wont get knocked down and it would be nice if people wouldnt call me fat or ugly.. I want bullying to stop because the people who get bullied, are the ones who are always scared and are the ones who get brake downs  i wish they realized how cruel and or idiotic they seem to us.

i know what it feels like to get bullied iv'e  been bullied my whole life and no one seems to care because they think it is funny but  it's not i want every one to know that they are beautiful and when some one calls you fat it doesn't make them skinnier and when you get called ugly that doesn't make any one prettier so just keep on being you and don't change for any body if they don't like you for you they don't deserve a friend like you

I moved countrys and I was the most popular girl in my new school.After a while the girls I called frieends started telling everyone im a whore, slut and many things.After thta I started cutting and my mom found out.I had never seen my mom cry so it amde me stop.I amde new friends,but after a while one of them publishes a nude video she tapped of my while I was takign a bath.She then told the whole school that I posted on of her on youtube with was a lie.Everyone hated me and now im changing school.Bullying hurts, a lot and if you havent gone through it, you will at some point.Because the slightest remark can cause a lifetime impact.Be careful and treat people well because who knows maybe someday youll be on thir place, and dont you wish you ahd someone who helped you?
