I Care Because

I care because I have been bullied for 1/3 of my life. I understand all forms of bullying, and I wish to help those who need to be helped. If someone had been there for me when I was being bullied, things might have been different, so that's why I'm working hard to help out anybody I can.

last year a kid in my school committed suicide because he couldn't handle it anymore. I've always been against bullying, but for me that was a wake up call. I've been bullied before and it sucks. I don't ever want any person to feel like they are not as "cool" as someone else. We are all equal. It dosent matter how many friends you have, how much money you have, or anything else. I care because I don't want anyone to feel so sad that they feel the need to tie their own life.

I've always been bullied about my weight. Ever since I was really really young, everybody thought it was funny and they would laugh. It still hurts to think about it today; almost 10 years later. I have really low self-esteem and I hate the way I look. No matter how many people say that I'm pretty, I have a hard time believing them because of all of the negative comments I've gotten in the past. 

Now that I'm no longer going to the same school as the bullies and things are a bit easier now, I know I'm not the only person out there being teased because of their weight. All of this needs to stop not only because it's unnecessary, but because life could be so much easier without all the negativity.
