I was leaning towards cutting my wrists and thinking about suiciede everyday..  Now i have reliezed im not the only one and now im here reading all these stories and reliezing how good i have it... there are people with much worse stories than mine. but bullying is bullying and it should all be stopped ASAP. you are beautiful . remember that. follow your dreams and never give up. I have learned how to control my actions and love life and you should too.

My best friend was always bullied from the first day I met her, which was in third grade. That's why we're even friends. Two years ago, during gym, some girls came over and started to call her ugly and stuff. Now, in our little group of friends, I'm known as the one who'd stick up for my friends, and my BFF my little SISTER. So when these two girls started to mess with her, it killed me inside. The look on her face is what did it. I nearly hit one of them with my shoe. And sometimes she feels as if other people are using her. She's still bullied today, but by boys. They call her ugly, say she wears too much make up, and it kills me to see her cry everytime we talk. I realized I don't want anyone else to be inthe same situation as her. That's why I care.

I have been bullied a few times . Nothing too bad . But after getting bullied by these 2 girls that were a year older then me . . I was too scared to go to school . Not even an hour into school I could last . I was crying and in tears by 2nd hour . But since then , everything has been on the easier road for me . Until 7th grade begun , I lost friends because of obnoxious rumors . I was hurt . I was so sad when I went to the bathroom and noticed that there were writings in there about me . I was heartbroken . But now that that was settled . I support everyone in my school . And I try my best to help my friends and family recover from depression or recover from the state of being bullied . <3
