Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because nobody has the right to hurt someone elses feelings.

  • I am someone who is still being bullied almost daily. It started with them as my friend, but I was surprised that I fell for it. He calls me names, and he once told me to kill myself. This is why I care. There are so many beautiful people in this world who are being brought down for no reason. I don't want what's happening to me to happen to other people. No one deserves it. Not even the worst person alive




  • i care cause people should not be mean to other people

  • 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 was bullied for 3 years. at first it was name calling and then it went to being physical. I did a wrong choice of hiding it from my mom. also my mistake was that i thought it was my fault. my friends tried to help but it turned on them and then they turned to me as well and then finally my mom had gotten enough of it and moved schools. the staff at school was not helping they made it sound like it was my fault.

  • People only bully because the are too scared to say their own weaknesses. Running away from their flaws they expose and exploit others' to feel good. It is nasty and cruel and big problem in our society. I HATE bullying and it should be stopped right away!

The first day of school
Anonymous

I was new, and i did not know anyone at the new school, i have been to a school like this, but i never got bullied, it was the day… i was excited for it too.. i walk in the doors and everyone tells me their names, and so i tell them mine, and then a girl comes up to me and asks me, ” do you wanna sit with us”, i told her sure….
During lunch…
She introduced me to the other girls, and 2 of the girls did not like me, and 2 of them did, so i joked with them, not in a bad way but in a way that they didn’t like, they told me that i joke too much… i came home…

The next day at school….
i was in school when someone i did not like told the 2 girls that did not like me that i wanted to fight…. so my day went on and i was depressed, because one of my friends heard the person tell the 2 girls that do not like me that i wanted to fight… I got a note it was from one of the girls asking lets fight at the bike racks after school… i cried literally.. i did not know if they were joking…

After school…
i go outside.. and there they are a big group of people sitting outside waiting for me and the 2 girls to fight…. i walk away with my cousin cause she was there.. and they started calling me names like scaredy cat and other inapropriate words… when i get in the car with my grandma and my cousin i tell them what happend… but they was gonna go up to the school but i told them no it will only make it worse….

The next day at school….
i walk in and during classes i had the 2 girls that do not like me in some of my classes… they told me to stop looking at them and i wasnt…

A couple months later…
it was our kindness campaign and i get a note from one of the girls who bullied me, and it says im sorry… i stared to cry when i got home but i was okay.. i was so happy…

Later on…
they started being nicer to me and i have not been so depressed like that in a while…
Just listen…
when someone bullies you i know its hard i have been through it but just trust god….
