Tell Us Why You Care

  • Bullying is a cruel act that I strongly dislike. If we, as a nation could end bullying this world would be such a better place, so i encourage everyone that is reading this to stand up for those whom are bullied. If you are the one being bullied stand up for yourself. I don't mean in a physical way. Tell them how you feel about them bullying you and speak to them with wisdom on why bullying is wrong, and how it can effect ones life. Remember bullying comes in all forms, not just at schools. Thank you.

  • I have been bullied all my life, and i dont want people to feel the way i feel because almost every day i wake up unhappy. I want everyone on here to know that they are beautiful and deserve to start the day happy. Love you all!

  • I care because no one cared about me. I care about changing the lives of others, because I wasn't able to change my own. I care because I know what it's like, to want, to need, someone to care.

  • I have been through so many scenerios and I have seen what some of the stuff I have been put through reflect on other people, and I wonder how much stronger they are because of it. I have been cyberbullied, verbally bullied, physically bullied and pretty much everything else. But it really starts to scare me when I start to believe the things those cruel people say about me. This year has been a major fall through for me and I really am learning from it. Girls are harsh, and I have come to learn that whatever you say, whatever you do, what you wear can make them go after you in a second. I have been depressed, lonely, friendless and I still try to see the bright side of my situation everyday. One time, in math class this year I even wrote a note saying that I didn't want to live anymore, it was so tempting. I saw it as a way to escape all this pain that these people had inflicted on me. And just me. I thank my parents everyday though for helping me every step of the way to a better & healthier life. I know it may seem hard but teens really need to have a trusting relationship with a parent or guardian because they can actually really help your cause. I believe no person should have to experience the true pain known as bullying. Ever.

My Best Friend
Asia

Hi, I am Asia and a while ago (up to about 2 years ago) I bullied a girl who had glasses and everyone thought she was over weight and I called her 4 eyes and fat and today she is the only thing I care about,she is my BEST FRIEND! I love her to death and she is like my sister and she got sent to a foster home about an hour away from where I live and I never get to see her anymore. It makes me so sad because I just remember everything I did to her,I made her cry SO many times! And to this day every second I think about it and its just terrible,she is beautiful,not fat AT ALL. The only reason I said any of that is because I was always REALLY REALLY JEALOUS of her in every way. Now when I get bullied because I am short and weird I know I deserve it because of what I did to my best friend. I just know that she was so hurt because of the stupid things I said to her and I don’t even know what to do because I can’t take any of the things I said back because it already happened and then one day in Art Class she got bullied right in front of my face and I said A LOT OF THINGS TO THAT BULLY. Gosh I know this is bad to say but he has no feelings and I hate him but I can’t stop him. I told the teachers and they didn’t do ANYTHING. But now she started over and she is okay with a lot of things that happened in the past and she forgave me for what Iv’e done. I feel good for her because she’s happy where she is! I love her sooooooo much,when I hear her name all I think of is family because she is just like family and we have been through EVERYTHING together! And that’s my story.
