Jessica, 18, Dillonvale OHio

i wasn't bullied to much. but i went to a new school in high school. and i saw alot of bullying to kids who are different. the victims feel alone, and i know what thats like. its depressing. i felt ugly and like no one cared about me. if you see a kid whos alone, who seems "friendless" talk to them, you'd want someone to talk to you.

Ive been called every name possible. Dont just be a stand by. The person bullying me pushed me into lockers and stuff. Then she went to the princapal and she told him i was bullying her. And I get hurt and cry myself to sleep and it hurts.

Being bullied is hard. It can happen to anyone. The key is not to let it get to you. What truly matters is how you take it. You can either get angry and try to get them back OR brush it off and carry on with your life. It can't hurt you if you don't let it. Always remember that you're not alone. People care about you. Its okay to reach out.

I've never been a victim, but unfortunately I was both observer and I regret not having done anything but now that I'm reporting on the subject I am determined to put a stop to all those around me and so slowly make a change because ''The End of Bullying Begins With Me''
