  • Nobody deserves to be treated as if they are not worth anything. No matter what people say about someone, that person should know that they are not alone and that there are many other people in the world that are experiencing the same things that they are. It is important to treat others as you would want them to treat you. Taking your anger out on other people is never the answer to solving your own problems. To those of you who have been/are bullied, I'm sorry. Know that it will get better in time.

  • I care because bullying is a change of life, and change of matter, personality etc. As bullying hurts you and your gut the bullying must end.



    Ingrid — 11
  • I've been bullied, but when I was bullied back then i was comfortable with myself and didn't care what i look like or how my peers viewed me. It wasn't until I got to Middle and High school where those things became part of my everyday life. Hurtful comments can change the way you view yourself negatively and if you cant love yourself then life will be extremely hard to go through and you might think to yourself "its not worth it just give up" But I'm here to tell you that YOU are worth it!



    Madz — 14
  • I care because I have been bullied before and it's not a very good feeling and I would hate for people to fill the pain I did.



    Samantha — 12
  • i care because i want to live. the word bullying makes me sad

My Younger Years
Anonymous

My bullying started, or when I first noticed it, when I was in around 2nd grade. There were two boys that were two grades higher than me and always called me names like ugly and useless. That wasn’t the worst of it though. One day on the bus one of the boys decided to “play a game” by me answering random facts about him. I didn’t have a choice in the matter since I was so young. When I lost the game, he pulled out a rubber bouncy ball completely impaled with toothpicks and threw it at me. He did this a total of three times before leaving the bus. Later he was expelled because I talked to my mother about it. I still have the scars on my arm and ankle from it.
Another case was when I was in my 8th grade year in a different school. I had left the previous school due to the fact that I was being constantly scrutinized and picked on by my peers and was yearning for a fresh start. This didn’t happen though when a kid from my old school moved to my new school and started to spread horrible rumors that I was watching pornography. I am a person who has an extreme phobia of sex and even talking about it makes me nervous so my parents knew immediately that this was a lie. Another thing that they teased me for was for standing by one of my friends who is transgender. Luckily they talked to the principal and things were set straight for me to finish my year in peace. I’m still waiting to see how my junior year goes in high school and if I need to write again or not.
