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 still get bullied allot because everyone thinks im dumb well im not! i may be left behind but the chances are of me being dumb is that no one is perfect and i have ralised that so if anyone calls me dumb all i kno is that its gonna make me a better person .......but my opinion to bullying is never get down always stand up for yourself be strong confident and the world shines on your future today! dont care what the bullys say!  just ignore them and walk away...ThankYou

in middle school this group girls started bullying three of my friends and they had no reason why. it started getting worse and worse. one of them even hit one of my friends with her jacket! and on  another occasion, i saw them cursing out one of my friends and in class i asked her if she was alright, but she said about another time where they kept toching her hair and she had no choice but to call them off. she started crying, but when class started, she got better. all of them should have went to the teacher, but they decided to stick it out. the next year, a few of them moved away and the bullying stoped. it hurt me seeing my friends being bullyed, but they were so brave that they inspired me to be brave too, to always think of the positive. not of the negative.

When  will it be enough for people to realize, that hurting people isnt the answer. Jealous, Anger, Depression, Family Affairs and much much more drive people to bully. But why! It happens in the hallways in the bathroom locker rooms facebook face to face gossiping. And it brings me to tears to hear about so many percious lives being lost because people are careless about their actions. im constanly bullied through school and yeah the teachers talk about it but they never do anything about it!!

I had a best friend who was bullied. She was embaressed by it. She'd deleat text messages without showing them to anyone, and pretend to even me that the things people would say to her walking down the hallway never bothered her. I noticed and asked it about her one night when she was over at my house. She got very emotional and started telling me all thease horrible things i never knew people were caipable of saying. She made me promise not to tell anyone and so i didnt. Things started to go down hill for her when i left last summer for a two month vacation with my family. She had no where to turn to because she was to proud to tell her family and i was her best firend. I told her to call me whenever she needed to talk but that wasnet enough. She went into a deep depression and started to physically abuse and cut herself and i had no idea it was that bad. I never new teenagers could be so mean. I didnt know my firend, the girl who could shake of anything, could be made to feal so bad. I told someone after that and my friend got help. It was hard to do. She hated me when she found out i told, but later she thanked me. No one should go thorough what she had to. Thats why i care.

I was bullied most of my life. I hated the way i was and at a point wanted to isolate my self from everyone. I was bullied because of my weight, and that hurt me very much. I wanted to change the way i was to have friends. But the same friends i had chosen to be with, helped me through it, and now i dont care that im skinny, im healthy, beautiful, happy, and proud for being me and noone else. I want to help those who have been through the same position as me. Because i know if my life became a living helll through that situation in my life, i dont want anyone to go through what i did.. My own friend is gong through that, and Im proud that I can help her, because I went through that.

My Bestfriend has been bulied her whole life. No one likes her because she's different but I love her for the reason of her being different. Everyone would act like she didn't exist and just scream at her and push her punch her and all. I put a stop to it I threatened everyone by telling them i'd go to the prinicipal.They all stopped and let her be the way she is. I find her an amazing friend no matter what!

I've been bullied since my 1st day of kindergarten. Whether it was of my looks, ethnicity , or the way I acted. I learned that not everyone is willing to help and some people might not even want to hear you out but I will and I'm here to fight against bullying. I went into a deep depression that just recently ended after a stint in the pscyhiatric hospital and after an attempted suicide and years of abusing myself. I know now that if no-one wants to help then you need to help yourself first, I'm not saying that no-one will help you but try to get help no matter what but if you do not succeed then you have to be the first to stand up and speak out! Not just for yourself but also for the people all around the world that are bullied each and everyday!

I didnt really know about bullying , till it actually happened to me . I was Third grade when it all began . Populars . They hated me . Who knows why ! Well , it got so bad that the leader of this group , sent a couple of guys to come up to me . This is what they said " You better back off . Or things will get ugly . " I came home crying . I told my mom . An thats when the principal got involved . Everytime I get scared , I tell my parents . But now . Everyone things Im a tattle teller . And Now they think they can pound on me and stuff . I heard from 3 girls older then me that older girls wanna beat me up or think Im ugly or think Im a show off . But Im not .

I care because it's not fair to be treated nasty just because the other person does'nt like you. I've been since elementary school just because of a boy that liked me. It's been going on for four years and im really sick and tired of it. A few weeks ago I was eating lunch and three girls came up to me and one of them grabed my lasagna and dumped it on my hair! The worst thing was that the whole cafetria watched and the teachers didnt even do anything at all. But with the support of my friends and family I was able to stand up for myself. Im really glad that there is a website like this to show kids and teenagers that they are not alone. And a big thanks to Demi for standing up for us and not ignoring us. I love you! thanks.

I've been bullied practicly my whole life and so to know that people are working hard to end it means a lot to me.  It wasn't until I went to a different high school that everything turned out better. But we shouldn't have to switch schools or anything to have to make everything better. Pheobe Prince finally showed people how bad these things can get. I was even thinking about suiside at one point but I was still able to be here because I had a couple of close friends. But, it shouldn't go up to that point to anyone. Bullying needs to stop and I hope that when I have children that this will no longer be a problem. Thank you for helping other people that bullying is bad and needs to end and to all those who are being bullied, you're not alone and we are fighting to help you right now. Stay strong always and forever. <3

I care because my best friend has dealt with bullying ever since elementary school because he was different. He goes to a christian school, and is bullied because of the MUSIC he likes. Because he's into art and not sports, and now his best friend is being bullied. The other football players intentionally hurt him in practice just because he's friends with my friend. I myself have never really been bullied, but he's always telling me how bad his day was because of the other guys. They said something about his music, or how he dressed. The teachers do nothing about it. Heck the teachers seem to agree with it. I'm sick of it. All I want is to see my best friend happy again. This is supposed to be a christian environment, but it seems to be worse there. Two of my friends are being bullied because the minds of these people are sick and twisted and they can't accept people who are different. And I want it to change.

im against bullying because i always have been bullied. i didn't really understand at first that thats what was happening. i mean on tv everyone poortrays bullying as physical abuse and thats not always the case. i was verbally abused for two years before i really understood it. i hated myself. and i sortof still do. when i was younger i had this best friend. she was sooo sweet and always hungout with me. but one day she came over talking about her friends that were gonna jump me because im ugly or something. i started crying because she said she wasnt going to help and that they were right. after that i was beat up alot and even after i moved away it still happened. my family is going through a rough spot becuase i was in trouble for truancy. i was too scared to leave my house. i hate myself because i let it get to me. im not the kind of person who lets that stuff happen but i did. and even worse i stopped doing what made me happy. i love to be on stage and sing and dance. but i was too scared. 
im against bullying and im taking a stand. noone should go through what i have and i want to help make sure noone does!

I care because I have been bullied for two years. It's mostly been because of boys, jealousy and catty fights, but it has driven me in depression, and made me feel ways that no one should have to feel. I also care because three of my close friends were friends with Pheobe Prince, and this makes her story really hit home for me. I want to help prevent bullying, something that happens often in my school, and I plan on starting a club this coming year to promote awareness and to prevent other kids from being affected the way I was. RIP Pheobe. You have made a difference.

After reading about Phoebe Prince in Seventeen , I felt so disgusted with people . It seriously made me cry to hear something awful such as this . And the worst part is I can relate to Phoebe . I'm currently pregnant , going into my senior year and I am now judged and bullied by so many people . I go on this site , formspring and people comment and harrass me annonymously and tell me horrible things every single day . I used to cry myself to sleep and I even started cutting and hurting myself . But I have learned to stop all of that thanks to my amazing friends and supportive family . I wish Phoebe was told the things I have been told . I wish I knew her so I could give her a huge hug and tell her everything will be alright , and that their opinions don't matter . My mom tells me all the time that people only do those things simply because they are jealous and I will continue to believe so because it makes me feel so much better . At times I still cry , especially when I am alone . But knowing that I have the support I need gives me enough strength not to do anything stupid or horrible . All my love goes out to Phoebe and her family . I hope they stay strong . -Carleigh , 17 , WA

I read an article in Seventeen magazine today about Pheobe Prince - and it turned my life around. I will no longer be the bully, I will be the prevention. I will no longer put-down, I will build up. I will not cause the things those bullies of Pheobe did - I will not cause death. I will not cause suffering. I will not cause pain. I will not bully.

bullying is wrong on every level. i just read the story about Phoebe Prince, and it tore me to pieces. my heart and my pain goes out to her and her family and friends. the years of high school can be so rough and for her to have moved from Ireland to Massachusetts was a great accomplishment. she came to the land of pure hope and oppurtunity. and instead she went through pain and humilitation. it is one thing to humiliate a person for their race or skin color, but to critize them for being who they are, is a whole different level of rudeness. i believe in self love and inner confidence, and no one should have to feel unwanted or beautiful because of bullying. Phoebe will always be on my heart and mind. and i hope i am able to help stop the spreading of bullying!

so many people are bullied acroos the world, its so frustrating when you dont feel you can say something to anyone or the bulling will just get worse.  Im a red head so ive been through almost every name a person  can get, ranger, ginger nigjar, period head, they're are just a spot of what us read heads have to put up with.  i used to get treased so much that i would come home in tears every night, but i never felt i could tell my family because if the teachers wont listen or do anything what would they do.  I died my hair a couple of months after i started  at a new school.  My point not only being towards read heads but to everyone,  the things bullies say mite only last 30 seconds a time they say it but it stays in your heart forever!.  I think the worse part is now that i have over come the being bullyed stage is watching people who have just started school getting the same treatment that i have just got rid of.  Ive been talking to them to let them no that someone is always listning and that your never alone, theres always someone who has been through what you have.  we all have blood, we all are people, and we all have feelings.

I've been there. In the sixth grade, girls called me a b****, lied about me to teachers and other girls, pushed me into poles, and voted me out of lunch tables- for no reason. It got so bad that I had to switch schools, but things got a lot better. I, like many other teens, still face mean girls who try to destroy my confidence to raise theirs, but the victim of that emotional bullying has to realize that it's all because of jealousy. The reason Pheobe Prince, from Seventeen magazine, was targeted by those mean girls was because they were so jealous of her. When girls get jealous, they get mean. So all of you victims of verbal, emotional, or physical bullying- keep your head high, because you really matter in this world, and even if you think no one cares about you- I do. And mean girls- think before you speak. Consider if the attention you get from the mean joke you tell about that weird girl is worth her LIFE. That will  really make a difference.

I been almost bullied in my whole entire life.People would call me fat even my best friends.When i would go to daycare i was like 5,6.7 almost everybody would call me fat.And i would cry to my sister and she talks to them to stop calling me fat.This one girl called me fat you know what i did  i stoud up for myself.I don't care what people says you know why because im proud to be me.I would do anything to stop bullying even if its a lot of work.So we need to stop bullying NOW not sooner or later BUT NOW!!!!!

hi my name is chasity and i just read a story in Seventeen magazine about a girl named Phoebe Prince that was born the year i was a killed her self because of peoples rude comments. And so i read on and saw this web site 
and saw that demi lovato was the spokesperson for teens against bullying and im here to say that i absoulutly agree i was in nineth grade last year and i saw how rude comments can bring down someone ego just because some kids have no heart and dont care. i also saw people pick fight because they just wanted to even tho that person didnt do anything to them. im takeing her story i my opion to my school administrator and see if this virbule and pyscial abuse can be stoped. i never knew i could intill i heard that. my love and care goes out to phoebe princes family!!

After reading about Phoebe Prince in 17, I felt so shocked as to hear that there are people out there who get bullied bad enough that it comes down to killing themselves. 
It's not right for people of both genders to pick on someone else because they are different or they are the new kid in school. When I was in first grade, it was an awful year for my parents transferred me to the Catholic school in my hometown. One look at me and everyone was calling me fat, ugly, and stupid. I had some type of form of dyslexia, and the bullying and just got worse. I could read, just not very well, and when I had to read in front of the entire class for an assignment, people would laugh Ias I would read. The worst part is none of the teachers did anything about it!!!  I would go to a teacher and tell, but the girls that made fun of me were the golden children. My parents tried to help by getting my multiple tutors to help me in and outside of school. 
Eventually I left the Catholic school for the public school, and I was praised being called the smart girl, and such a sweetheart. I barely got bullied. 
It's just wrong that bullying has to happen, that is why I care.

everyone is made of carbon and has bone mass, muscle, and skin. There is nothing different or weird about any of us. We are just special in our own ways and we should embrace it. Everyone has hopes and dreams and if a bully pushes someone to a breaking point that person won't be able to achieve all that they want in life. Teenagers are the preliminary stages to adulthood and why bother someone you're not fond of, just ignore them. There is no point in torturing people. In the end, bullies get the humiliation.

millions of kids are being bullied, including me, and we need to stop this ASAP! it doesn't make you funny or cool to bully someone. it makes you a jerk! i mean come on, people are KILLING themselves because of this. so why hasn't it stopped already? everyone needs to take a stand to stop this crap. me and many of my friends DREAD going to school every day because we know we're going to be made fun of by the "populars" just because we can't afford the stuff they have, and we're different. it's not fair to the kids and teens being bullied that have done nothing wrong. i hope people will stop this horrible act of stupidness! WAKE UP WORLD! stop bullying!

i have been bullied since i was in 3rd grade. it's not fair for people like this to go through what they have to go through each day at school. i have been hurt so badly, that i have believed a lot of what bullies say to me and about me. they have definately changed my life for the worst and have made me have suicidal thoughts. i just need to get out of being bullied, i can't take it. 

callie - 13 - FL

i was bullied a was so bad that they even hit me in the face and...broke my nose..i had to get was so hard for me to keep up and im still getting bullied..i have called the principal and he doesnt believe me..What should i do?

Rhimarlyt - 9 - fl

Someone spread some rumores about me, something so gross it made people look weird at me and I feel so bad about it, those rumores are not true of course, I know I shouldn't care, because I've never done what he said.. everyone it's judging me, but nobody understands what exactly it's happening, it hurts a lot to see people talking and looking like that at me, but still, I pretend that I don't care, even if I feel bad all day long.I wish this would come to an end and live a normal life.
