Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because from the time I was in the fourth grade I was a victim of bullying. I grew up thinking I was worthless and didn't have a place in the world. I refuse to let others feel this way. As a high school student I see bullying everyday and it hurts me deep down inside because I know that the people who are being the bullies are hurting too and by bullying the others they feel bigger. I stand against bullying. All you need is one friend to take your hand and keep you afloat. I don't know if the people who read this are being bullied or not but don't let others bring you down your so much more than what they say. Your Beautiful Smart and Amazing. And you are loved. From a High school Junior I wish you luck.

  • Stand up to the bully even if it means losing your friends because you learn they weren't real friends in the first
    place and you will be looked up to in the end.

My Story and Advice
Daven

I was bullied pretty badly in high school. There was one kid in particular who would try to make me feel inferior in every way he knew how. For example, he would throw stuff at me constantly, flick me in the head, punch me, wipe whatever he picked out his nose on my shirt, call me ugly and stupid, mock me and of course – tell me he would beat me up if I ever fought back. It was like his daily mission.

And it was my daily mission to just get through the day. What can I say, it made my world very small because that was my sole focus – just surviving. Everything else fell by the wayside. Unfortunately, that included any form of social life. So not only was my world tiny. It was very lonely.

Looking back to that time – which was about 11 years ago – my biggest mistake was not bringing anyone in to that world of mine. I was too proud (and embarrassed) to get help. I would rather not face the fact that I needed help because in my mind, that would mean that the bully won. It would also mean that I was weak.

Let me just say this – bullying someone is a weak choice. The only reason they come after you is because they think you won’t do anything about it. Does that make anyone strong? Absolutely not. Be stronger – reach out to a parent, a teacher or friend. Anybody. Simply admit that you are struggling and need help.

You can put it like this, “Somebody who is weak and trying to build their self esteem up has chosen to do that by putting me down. The only reason they are doing that is because I am nice and I haven’t done anything about it yet. Well I am through putting up with this. I have basic human rights that they are violating to feel better and that it is just not okay. How do I handle this the right way? I don’t want the pain cycle to continue and become someone I don’t want to be.

I will close by saying this – I am okay! I am not just surviving. I am enjoying my life. I graduated from college with honors by the way (being stupid was lie…it is all a lie) You don’t have to wait to live though. Do something today.
