I Care Because

people dont understand how bad bulliying affects people whether if your the target or the bystander watching the bullying. personaly i have been in the postion of getting bullied and yes it does hurt but that doesnt give people a right to make someones life miserable just because they dont like them or they have something that someone else dosent have. no ones life is better than someone elses. stand up against it and do something and if YOUR doing the bullying then stop doing it!!!!

All my years in elementary, I was bullied because I was a very shy and quiet person. I would never talk to anyone and I always had my head down, thinking when will this end. Around 3rd grade I was depressed and had suicidal thoughts, I had no friends nobody to talk to. Until my mom noticed right away. Because of her, i am not the same kid anymore. When I started middle school I was made fun of but my mother was by my side the whole time. She is the reason why I am here today. Yes, it is hard but you just have to talk to some and realize it will get better :) You are not alone.

No one in this world ever deserves to be bullied and brought down by people. And no one deserves to hold in all those situations that have happened to them. If you are being bullied open up and talk about it.I know it is hard to do but you are not alone. Others get bullied and know how you feel. People love you and will listen to you and be there for you. Stand up against bullying today.

People should not be bullied because of how they look or what they like, they are the same people as you so people should stop bulling and be friends to each other so if your reading this lets stop bulling together.

No one and i mean no one should be bullied i care because iv been through it and in all honesty i don't think its fair to people to be put down called names ect. People are different if we were all the same then this world would be so boring everything and everyone doing the same thing day after day.I care because im a caring person also because i know hpow it feels to be builled it makes you feel horrible people should be there own people and not someone who someone says for you to be. Be yourself and be pround to be yourself remeber the only person you should be trying to impress is your self.
