I Care Because

I care because I've been bullied all of my life. It hurts. I've never been physically bullied, but I've been emotionally bullied. People call me fat, ugly, worthless, ect. I don't want people to have to go through what I've been through. People need to know it's NOT okay to bully. Treat others the way you want to be treated. I've though of commiting suicide NUMEROUS times because of the amount of bullying that I've gone through, but Demi Lovato has helped me. Because of her I didn't. Because of HER I have someone to look up to. Because of HER I'm still alive. She is so inspirational and caring, I wish there were people like her at my school. Thank you, Demi, for saving me. Stop the bullying, spread the love.

I was bullied once before too, and I know how it felt. It really hurts my  feelings., emotionally. Those bullies said bad things about me. They made rumours about me. :( I'm really SAD cause I thought they were really my real friends but they turn out to be fake, fake "friends" I really prefer to have no friends to having fake ones. 
don't suffer in silence, speak UP for Yourselves.

I was bullied all through Jr. High and so far, most of high school. It hurts. Being bullied can ruin your life. I began self-harming myself for it because I was so alone. I only had two friends and we always fought because I was so depressed and I was never happy. Bullying is a terrible thing and it shouldn't be done. It gives you a horrible feeling. It knocks down your self worth and confidence. You end up believing every word they say about you and spiraling downward. It's never an easy thing to deal with. I still deal with it. I'm still trying to overcome my addiction to self-harm as well...

Bullying is more devasting then people realize. Words can hurt and leave an impact on someone's life.If you were to say a hurtful comment to someone think about if you would of liked it said to you. Think twice before you say something. If you see someone get bullied, don't just stand there. Bystanders are just as bad as the bully if they just stand there and do nothing.

I was bullied at my old school. It was really tough. I didn't have many friends, and I wasn't popular. I hope some day all bullys with understand what it feels like to be bullied. Then, maybe, they would stop.

I wish people would stop hating or discriminating others. Don't you see? we're all human. The same. Please, stop all this hatred.

Bullying is horrible. Noone should have to go through it. I was getting bullied really bad last week and it got that bad that I had to go and tell the principal's about it. Verbal bullying and cyber bullying can hurt as much as physical bullying and I don't think that the bullies out there understand that. Bullying is never a joke. It's a serious matter. It ruins lifes. Everyone needs to learn that so we can all live in peace on day. Let's try and stop bullying! The end of bullying begins with all of us. xx

Im recentley getting bullied at my school. Like just the other day someone gave me a threat online that i was goanna get it and another person said that they want to hurt me phiscally. Theres so much drama at my school that needs to be handled. Even though im in a younger grade i agree bullying needs to be taken care of. Because im sick and tired of it.

Bullying is simply wrong, hurtful, and mentally debilitating. It lowers self-esteem and self respect.

I see physical abuse happening to a girl in my class from another girl in my class......AND I GO TO A CATHOLIC SCHOOL!It's really gotten out of hand!We had gym and my gym teacher had a few kids at a time doing pushups while the other kids played basketball and jumped rope.I was talking to a few of my friends then I turn  around to see the girl being pelted with basketballs and the girl bullying her kicking her on the ground.It was so bad that the girl couldn't get up so she tried to roll away.I've tried to tell my principal and teacher about that but some kids made them think that we were talking about rebounds in basketball.The girl who's being bullyed writes on her hand and my friend told me that she draws pretend people on her hand.I'm goig to request her to the school guidence counselor if I see her writng on herself.I feel so bad for this girl.There has to be something I can do before the school year ends and we all go to different schools since mine is closing down.WE HAVE TO PUT AN END TO BULLYING!

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.’”
