I Care Because…

  • I care because bullying has affected my cousin, and he could not focus on school and at home. In school, he couldn't do any class work and at home he wouldn't eat anything, which caused his parents to worry.

  • I care about bullying because it could affect other people besides the victim. For example, it affected me when one of my classmates was cyber bullied. It was annoying for me because everyone was distracted by this and they wouldn't stop talking about it. Therefore my grades suffered.

  • 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?

  • I will be a teen against bullying because it does matter how we teens feel. The bullies in this world don't understand and see the other point of view of the person they are bullying. We have to stand up to something that has taken a toll on the society, especially in this generation. We have to be able to understand that other people's feelings and emotions matter just as our own feeling and emotions do too. We have to be the ones to stand up when something is not right, and stand up for someone that matters, because don't you think you matter also?

  • It's sad how many people don't realize how their words can affect people, or even they do know... and just don't care. I care because I didn't know until it was too late & I lost my best friend.

  • I care because a student used to bully me I told my mom and nothing worked you should never bully someone who never bully you. If you bully you're going to hurt that person's feelings. Do not hurt the other person's feelings. If you do not want do be bullied then don't bully others trust me if you don't bully then you are not going to bully by no one.

  • I care because I have been bullied and I told every one that I got bullied back in 2 and 3 grade. They didn't help me. l always got kicked and they told me names. I tried to tell the principal,and they always told me that she wasn't there. So, I tried to play soccer and they said that I suck because I was a girl. I told my mom that I was bullied and she took me out of that school. They accept me for who I am I. I wasn't judged by anyone. I met Ms.Rachel and she always cheered me up when I was sad.

  • I know what it feels to be bullied and It's very tough. I'm still currently being bullied (yes adults can get bullied too). I've been bullied when I was in elementary and high school. I was once weak to accept their words but now I know that they were wrong and everything they've said and done was simply out of their insecurity. Don't feed into their words. People will take the smallest things and manipulate them. This is their way of making you believe in them. People like that makes you feel worthless and weak but the hidden truthful secret is that they're the ones with insecurities and who are very bitter. They're simply angry within themselves. These kind of people are simply taking their anger out on everyone and the reasons why they could be choosing you because they've once seen joy and happiness from within you. They see something that they want. Don't let bullies get the best of you. You won't be in their miserable surroundings for long. Let go and karma will handle. Karma is real and what they're doing to you, they'll pay for it soon. You continue to be a kind person because you are much stronger than what you know. Rise above!

  • Bullying ruins lives. At 23 years old I still remember word for word what bullies said to me, what they did to me. It's something that some of us will live with for the rest of our lives. Bullies, seek help, please don't let your anger out on someone who doesn't deserve it.
