I Care Because

No one should have to feel that they are not worth it or they are not pretty or handsome, they should be able to be themselves without people judging them or making fun of them. When people make jokes they're just like ?oh, it was just a joke, I didn?t really mean it? rightttt NO, we have feelings too? Me, I?m a very serious person, I can?t take a joke, but it HURTS me why can?t they understand that? I feel bad for people who have been cyberbullied or bullied because people just don?t seem to understand that EVERYONE has feelings, just as every other human being in the world.

I'm just starting middle school and already, there's this girl who wants to beat me up... I'm afraid of going now. She was nicer last year, but she's changed now. I hope this sight can help anyone from being bullied.

Bullying is something really bad, and its really sad that its actually spreading in this world. bullying can cause some really bad issues, like eating disorders, self harm, bullemia and many other stuff, bullying should be stopped. if you're reading this and you have EVER been bullied, i just want  you to know, that you're beautiful and you're worthy of life. and whatever those bullies told you, i just want you to know that its not true, and that i love every single person who's reading this, stay strong.

I've been made fun of by my last name all through out my 7th grade year. It hurt me a lot. I hope people never be bullied because I was really hurt by this.

No one should have to go through what I did. Bullying physical or emotional causes more and more problems every day. IT HAS TO STOP people don't realise how much damage it can put on a person. no one else needs to suffer

everyone needs to be treated the same. No one deserves to be picked on at school or at home. What did they ever do to you? Even if you have a reason, just leave it alone and then you won't get in trouble. 

Emily, 13, Texas

i am deeply disturbed that i was involved in a bullying incident.

i am older and wiser and know the results of such negative actions.

if only i could take it back...i would do it immediately...i am sorry terry...what you were put through...you did not deserve such treatment...i don't know where you are at today...but i hope you found the peace, love and happiness you deserve...again i am deeply sorry and hope that some how this reaches  you and all those others who are who are being bullied.
