Tell Us Why You Care

  • If someone here is being bullied just remember that you are not alone there is always someone by your side, if not one then many and if not many then one but there is always someone. I haven't experienced being bullied yet but I now how it feels. I AM WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!

  • I care, because making others feel bad won't make yourself feel better. Does making someone feel like they're worth nothing make you feel like you do? Perhaps you yourself have been targeted before, but is targeting others the correct response and solution? Or are you just turning yourself into the bully that bullied you?

  • Hi ! My name is Lexi. I'm 16 years old and my school is trying to make an app about bully prevention. I care because I have been bullied. I promise it all gets better as long as you ignore them. Just keep your head up. I'm here to help and put a stop to bullying. Just remember you're beautiful/handsome and you're all loved so much. Have a great day.

  • I care because not, only is it hurtful physically, it's hurtful mentally. Everyone has feelings, don't think you're the only one with them. Being bullied isn't a fun thing, you may think it comes out as a joke, but for other people, it could be more serious than you think. Any type of bullying isn't cool. You have a voice, make sure you use it. 🙂

  • My statement is to end bullying and cyber bullying. I’ve been bullied, humiliated, even being unappreciated since I was 7 to 20. I’m 21 now and I feel like a teen cause my face never change since elementary school. I don’t smile much cause like is hard for me, have depression since the last day of school in 2015. Didn’t graduate with a regular diploma, which cause me never do work again after being yelled at for no reason. I’m so sick and tired of it and I wish bullying just end just now cause I’m tired of seeing the young ones ending their lives. This has gotta stop

Stories

Sometimes, I was the bully
Anonymous

Once, in Second grade, me and my two best friends got into some arguing. But, I was mostly arguing with my one friend, S. One time, on the bus, I kept bugging her, and when she finally responded I growled at her and glared like SHE was being the bully. One day at recess, she actually stood up to me. She told me, “How would you feel if I sent you mean things like ‘I don’t want to be your friend anymore’?” I remember crying, and apologizing, but when I look back, I feel like I was only crying for pity. I was convinced that I was the reason she moved that next year. When she moved, I was positive it was my fault, after all, I was really rude to her, and I talked and was a lot more nice to my other friend, Amy.

Another time in fifth grade, me and some friends decided to make a secret club about hating the most popular girl in our grade. (I’ll call her… M.) The only thing we ever did in this club was talk about how rude she could be, because sometimes she really could be. But… she found out. And we all got sent to the counselors office (including M) to talk. I felt so awful I could hardly think straight. Before we had to go to the counselors office, the teacher made us fill out a paper about why we made up this club. All I can remember was putting on that paper, that I was willing to take any punishment and I was extremely sorry, because I was. When we were in the counselors office, I could tell M was upset, which made me feel bad. A few of us people that made up the club actually cried. (I didn’t, but I could’ve.) I remember us all apologizing, and M talking about how it made her feel bad. Which made me feel worse. I was pretty sure I cried that night wishing I’d never done that.
Sometimes, I was the bully. And I remember looking back and thinking about all those time that I would watch or hear things like ‘don’t bully’ or ‘be kind’. For a little while, I was a bully without even realizing that.
My message to you is, don’t bully. It makes everything worse. Now, I’ve made sure to be as nice as possible. And sometimes, I do lose my temper… but, I’m only human.
Bullying is not the answer, I know from experience.
