I've dealt with bullying of all forms throughout my life. And even in those short periods where I wasn't being bullied, the lasting affects of it lingers and keeps me trapped in a constant state of fear. I've already lost a decade of my life to bullying, and I'm still trying to recover from last year's months of being subjected to intense bullying by my own sports teammate.

I’ve been bullied since grade school. But as I got older I realized bullies are not just in schools or workplaces, but very well in home and in our families as well. I am 23 years old and I’ve been so angry with what he or she said, when I’ve done nothing but bottle up my emotions every time an adult chose to not take accountability for their actions/words. I’m tired of standing around allowing people to be mean and play victim when the real victim reacts. I’m deciding to react in a more formal way now days. Standing up for a cause that matters. Some adults experience bullying every single day. I want them to know it’s okay to change the narrative. It’s not you. It’s them.

As a person who was Being bullied for something that you struggle/can't control sucks and my parents are inconsiderate about this`ignore "them they say". I was bullied for having naturally curly hair because it was ugly to have curls according to them and I still struggle to accept my hair because of the comments like your hair is so dirty brush it and it would be pretty and straight like mine and they still get to me to this day and for being quiet even if I try to talk to them they find me annoying and not worth their while it's not like anyone cares I still remember being afraid to talk to people because of they way I was treated it's hard it's those bullies fault for the way I am right now I'm stiling learning to accept my differences if your getting bullied for something you can't control screw them don't let people tell that your ugly stupid etc.. and If they do be sure to make it stop tell someone you trust don't let it get to you and NEVER ignore them and finally your always worthy of love your differences are beautiful:)

Those who bully hurt everyone not just the person they are bullying. They hurt the witnesses,themselves,AND the person they are bullying. This isn't right and it should be stopped. Those who are bullied don't just stand there, tell someone. YOU MATTER!

I care because nobody deserves to suffer from any bullying or harassment ever. We all should be kind and loving to each other and be accepting to each other.

I have been bullied all through out my life, and sadly it isn't just me that has to go through this. My story is pretty similar to others, the only difference is I have become stronger through this journey. Bullying showed me that I am worth so much and I don't need to feel like I am not worth anything or I don't belong on this earth. I just want people to know that you are worth so much more than the bullies tell you, you are. Bullies don't define you, and they don't create your future you just have to try and be positive and be the best you that you can be.

Hi I’m Charlotte. And we have this girl in my class who is a bully. And she only targets me. Everyone else just sits there and watches. And the teachers just hope it goes away! How unfair is that? She just gets away with everything! I’m done. I’m finally standing up to her. I’m sick of this. If you or someone else is being bullied, tell a teacher or trusted adult amidily. No more living in fear of bullies. Stand up. Be heard. Don’t let them get in your head. Get in their’s.

I care because nobody should be treated like this. My friend gets treated like this and I've seen her crying from it and it makes me upset. I don't want to see anyone else like this from bullying.

I was bullied a lot at my first elementary school, and it really hurt to have no one like me. but in third grade, I changed schools and made friends. They really cared about me and made me feel good, so don't give up. :]

What reward does bullying give you? It makes people hate you. It makes the people hate the person you are bullying. If you are a bully's victim, don't worry and don't be scared! I 100% support you. And if you are the bully, I don't hate you. You probably got bullied too and wanted revenge. But bullying isn't the answer! We are all family. Let's stop this abuse now.

YOU are IMPORTANT! YOU have NOT done anything wrong! You are NOT alone! YOU MATTER! The world is a better place because YOU are in it! I may not be with you physically but I AM taking a stand against bullying because YOU are AWESOME! I’ve seen the devastating effects bullying has and it breaks my heart. I’ve also seen how being an upstander has the power to change lives. If you are reading this and you are not a victim of bullying, please reach out to others. Each of us has the power to make a difference.

I care because my cousin gets bullied all the time and I stand up for him. I don't like when other people get bullied and if I see it I will say something

I've seen people bullying other people because they have been buillied in the first place. One time, a close friend of mine told me he was being bullied and I talked to the bully. The bully said she was bullied too. I told her we could be friends if she stopped bullying other people, but she was blinded by the people who bullied her. This has got to stop. What will bullying get you?

I care because I was bullied. I care because I have seen what bullying does to people. My sister and many of my friends were bullied by these "friends" I used to have. They were very mean, they used to pick and say mean things about her when I wasn't there. My sister ended up getting hurt and never told me. After I figured it out they started picking on me as well, telling other people to not hang out with me because I was mean and rude, they made me feel like a was a bad person. My parents found out and we moved. I don't know where they are or what they are doing but I am hoping that they will no longer cause harm to other people and learn that it is better to be kind.

Up until 11 years old I have been bullied at school when I was little. Even if now I'm over it, I remember how it was really hard coming to school and I am willing to help victims with this because I dont think other people actually understand the gravity of it. My friend once asked me why victims of bullying dont tell anyone, and so I realized people are really ignorant about it because they didn't experience it. It's actually really sad

Bullying isn't cool, it doesn't make you look or seem cool all it does is make someone's life worse..

Rayce - 13 - Colorado


I have been bullied before in my life because I was too "tomboy." I wasn't girly enough for some of the kids so I mainly stuck around the guys. Some of the guys didn't like me because I was a girl. They would make fun of me because I wasn't girly. I am also very tall for a girl my age (5'6") and was also made fun for that. I had gotten major trust issues and I didn't know who to trust anymore. Everything became better once I entered middle school and made some new friends that will hopefully stay with me for the rest of my life. As time passes, everything will become better. Just wait for your time to shine.

I care because I know what it is like. I know what it's like to not fit in, to think differently from others, to not have a friend group, to work too hard, to come from nothing. I was bullied in elementary school and when I moved to MN it didn't get better. One girl pretended to be my friend for almost 2 years and then told me I wasn't cool enough to be friends with during the bus ride on a Friday afternoon. I wish that bullying didn't exist. It's terrible and no one deserves to be bullied.

I experienced bullying myself for just being the new kid in the school and having a mild-moderate stutter.  The emotional pain in youth was terrible, at times, and I would sometimes fake being sick just so I could avoid having to go to school.  I used this pain as a source of motivation to become licensed and working in special education for nearly 29 years now.  PROMISE TO NEVER-EVER become a bully yourself and always look for ways to stand up and support others who are going through it themselves.  You, I, anyone can become part of a positive change in society if we take our experiences and turn it into a force for good!

I have been a victim of bullying since I was 12. 

It is absolutely awful for anyone to have go through. Especially when it feels like there is no escape. 

At one point it was online, verbal, physical and threats. Now it has stopped being online but it doesn't mean that it has gotten better.

Bullying has really affected me and it has made me even more passionate about kindness and making sure that anyone who is getting bullied is supported.

Life will get better. Stand up and speak out even though it might seem really scary.

Its not fair for people to feel this way. Bullying really needs to be stopped, It really is not fun to hurt kids just because of the way they act or the way they look. I have been bullied by kids younger and older than me, I tried not to let them get under my skin, but it is really hard not to. you just have to try and ignore them and if they don't then tell an adult whats happening, they will understand I promise. Please know that you are not alone and you can fix it.

I care because I have been a victim of bullying many times now. This is an experience I would never think I would Experience. The feeling of being worthless and just constant pain is the worst feeling ever. I want to make sure that any time someone is the room with me that they feel worthy, loved, and know that their voice matters. I created a campaign called The Be Nice Program and partnered up with PACER. With this, I am able to advocate for bullying awareness, self-respect, but also Empathy!
