  • Bullying isn't nice any way you look at it doing it thinks it is fun because they are hurting other people's feelings and that isn't nice. Also the bully thinks that the person that their bulling doesn't have feelings but their wrong trust me I've been in that position when a kid picked on me and I didn't do any thing to hurt him. Another thing is that the person being bullied is the only one on that side and the bullies are mean and just gang up on the victim and hurt their feelings but hopefully they have a friend to help get them out of the sticky situation they are in. So if you are the bully STOP IT NOW that isn't nice your hurting other people and you know it so just stop it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • why do people bully kids? Can't they see that bullies harm other kids. Bullies make the kid feel sad, lonely, unwanted, and have problems at school. Normally 160,000 students miss school because they're scared of being attacked by the bullies or intimidation by other bullies.

  • I care because every kid is their own person. Nobody can help it if they are sick, what color they are, and even how they speak. I get bullied almost every day, and its not fair that we have to go through this. We are who we are. I stood up for this kid who was being bullied and he didn't even know he was getting bullied. My ex-friend was saying I wanted pity when I didn't. They just want attention and put us down to make them self feel better. You don't have to be popular, good at sports, or ever have a phone to be you. BE YOU!

Bullies ruined my life..😟
Anonymous

Hello I’m a 17 year old girl here. My name is K. I’ve been bullied throughout my life. It hurts. It started in elementary. It wasn’t bad. One boy didn’t like me,one girl kept sticking out her tongue at me and one girl sometimes gives me mean looks. In middle school, people called me weird,ugly and ratchet. These 2 boys were laughing at me in the bus. I got mad and couldn’t stand getting bullied and I callled him ugly. He laughed and pointed at me because i was wearing glasses. But I didn’t really mean it! Only did it to stand up for myself. In high school, it was really bad. One boy pushed me in lunch, people were saying threats,calling me names,etc. In Ap art class, these girls were bullying me. One called me the b word and the f word. One girl stole one of my artwork. They’re pretending I stole it. The girl was fake whining. It made me feel worst and I did cry. These girls in lunch were bullying me too, they said hurtful things. One girl wanted to fight me. One other girl said I have dodo hair. It was insulting. One boy threatened to murder me in lunch. I suffered from OCD,anxiety and depression. I also had suicidal thoughts. I’m still a little now. I did cry in the school bathroom. If you’re getting bullied, seek for help. Ask someone you really trust. And you can get through it! Stay strong! Don’t bully back. It will make it worse. I’m nervous might get bullied in college. I know i am.
