I was bullied for 2 years by my BEST FRIEND. She called me fat and stupid and ugly and told me all these nasty things, and i started to believe them. And when i would confront her about it she would say she was "just kidding", and she would continue to bully me.. I developed an eating disorder and started cutting too. I felt so alone, alone to the point where i attempted suicide. I am so lucky to be alive, and i have made it a mission of mine to minimize bullying in my area and eventually around the world. If you are reading this and you might be at the point i was, know YOU ARE NOT ALONE. <3

Everyone is someone. Someone with a heart, with a family, with someone who loves you somewhere. We are all here together trying to get through this life to move on to the next. I care because NO ONE should live in hell on earth. I care because we are all in this together. I care because we are all beautiful on the inside and out and most people are not told this as often as they should be. We are all different and that is what makes this world amazing. Don't be afraid to be you, don't let ugly things people say get the best of you. The best way to get back at them is simply not let IT affect you! Life is beautiful and so are you... embrace it, celebrate it, and don't let ANYONE ruin this experience on Earth. Life is short and precious. BE YOU AND BE PROUD!

I was bullied terribly for 5 years, and I know what it's like and it's awful. To fall into depression, and self - harm. Stay Strong <3

My little brother has been bullied ever since he started school he is now in third grabe its hard coming home to him crying. One day he came home saying he was sick me and my mom immientlie knew that something was wrong turned out that his so "friend" had been kicking and picking on him just because of his speach problems so we went to go talk to the principle and the kids parents the parents just kept defending their son and said well my son would never do that and said are you sure your brother is not just trying to get my kid in trouble for nothing and we knew he wasnt, after they said that the principle thought that my brouther was lying so the principle did nothing. My brother is nnow at a new school and doing a lot better.

Bullying is wrong. Bullying puts people down. It keeps them from being able to show there full potential. Not only the victim but the bully as well. I wanted to take a stand bu=eczuse I know that it is not okay. I thaught if I took a stand it might make someone else take a stand. Than someone else, and so on. Until finally everyone knows and bullying may begin to stop. Stay strong!

I spent most of my days in school being bullied since I was 13 years old, until I was 17. It was a really bad experience for me and it mold me into what I am today. I am very introverted and It is very hard for me to make friends since I can't trust people.In addition as a result of the bullying I have social anxiety and very low self-esteem, plus depression. I don't want anybody else to suffer bullying and to have the same consequences as me. That is why I am here, bullying needs to be stopped.

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
