Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because they(doctors)have found that bullying plays a part in childhood and teenage depression and anxiety .

    Christina — 17
  • I care because I was kind of bullied in sixth grade and I've also been an eye witness to bullying. It isn't fair. Some people might respond to that statement with, "Life isn't fair," but I don't think so. You can make life as fair as possible by treating everyone as equals. Sometimes, all someone needs to make them happy is a "Hey! How are you today?". Some people are really emotional and they get bullied, but that's not a very rational reason, is it? I got bullied for caring too much. Tell me, should we really bully people for that reason? Should we really cast people out just because they're "too emotional", or "too weird"? You don't have to be everyone's friend; but you don't have to be friends to be nice to people.

  • I think some bullying starts at home some kids are scared

    karina — 19
  • I care because not only have i been bullied at school but at home as well. People never know what a person goes through every day and its not right for people to be treated different because they act or look different. Everyone is unique in their own way so let them be them!

    Trey — 18
  • I don't like to see kids be upset

    Anna — 17
  • Bullying is disgusting. The people that pick on kids with disabilities are sad and need to learn some respect, it's not like it was thier choice to be that way. People that bully need to realize the effects you can have on some people, bullying can lead to depression, self harm, anxiety and in the worst case suicide. Grow up and realise your actions cause other people problems.

My life as a fat kid

Everyday I wake up and I am scared to speak up about my problems. I go to school seeking an education but unfortunately that isn’t possible due to all of the people who bully me. They constantly abuse me both physically and emotionally. I am sad that I have to share this story but I know that it will help other in my situation.
