My friend got bullied alot in elemantry school. She is a sweet person  so it made no sense to me. I hate bullying, being a victim myself. I am trying to stop it and it is hard. But with everyones help it can be accomplished. Bullies try to be cool, but anyone who bullies isn't truly cool.

My brother gets bullied becasuse he has a cleff-pallet (Speaking disorder) And seeing how we're twins people like to pick on the both of us. It doesn't really bother me that I get picked on, but it bothers me to no end when it happens to my brother. We might fight a lot, but when it comes to something like that, I'm the first person to jump the bullys case over it. Since we moved to our new school he hasn't had any problems, and we've been able to meet new people and have new friends.

My 15 Year old son has a form of Aspergers but gets bullied and made fun of all the time. I do not know what to do for him. I am lost and can't stand to see him so hurt.

Me alone I believe is being bullied, it's hard because nobody understands. They started out being my friend but then internet abuse started and to make things worse I have no confidence so at school they take everychance they get to break my confidence down futher. They make things up one of them kicked me in the groin and it hurt, it really hurt. When people confronted them about this they said I was lying and I made it up but I didnt they even made me doubt myself about it, doubt it never happened! I hate it I feel horrible, i wish it would just go away.

I know this girl that gets bullied because she is small,ugly,and smart. Its not fair to her.Everyone is beautiful in their own eyes. She should be getting praised because shes smart. Why are they teasing her because of her weight?! She is eleven years old and she is 81 puonds. Its just that all the other kids are like 100+ pounds! And to me that spretty big so they sholdnt be talking about her! The truth is that girl is me....and i know if any of my friends see this they will make fun of me because I posted this.... :( WE NEED TO STOP BULLYING!

I have been a constant bullying victim due to my views on gays. My older brother is gay and I proudly sport my rainbow bracelets and have my anti discrimination stickers. I hope to one day shed my title as a victim and become a leader against bullying so please if you see bullying dont just let it happen do something!

I hate people bullying me because I'm always the quiet one and they think I will do what they want me to cause I'm weak and when I get mad I try to bully them back but I know I cant because I'm not that kind of person.

I have been left out a lot, been given the rudest glares, heard the things they had to say about me, all of it. Bullies destroyed my confidence, and they have torn me down to the point where i thought i wasnt good enough. I dont think anyone else should go through the cycle of inconfidence, depression, insecurity, and what they think is false hope. I have gone through a lot because of bullying. It has destroyed me inside and out. Bullying really hurts people, even if you dont see them reacting to it, you dont know if they go home and cry theirself to sleep or think about ending it because of one thing someone said. Thats all it takes to push someone over the edge sometimes. If anyone reads this and is being bullied, youre not alone. Talk to someone youre close with, it doesnt even have to be family. Maybe just a good friend. Whoever it is, they will help you through this dark time. I cant say i dont deal with it anymore, it still happens all the time. But my close friend has helped me see that those words cant hurt me anymore. Stop isolating yourself, dont hurt yourself tonight, and please reach out to someone. Best wishes to all of you, i hope you find your light. Keep fighting, it will get better. ❤

I remember being bullied through grade school and High school and always feeling alone. I never knew who my real friends are and who i could trust. I always felt like people who were not bullying me openly pushing me against walls or calling me names were talking about me behind my back and most of the time I was right. Being bullied affected my friendships today not being able to trust anyone and now i don`t let anyone close to me because i don`t want to go through pain again all of this came from being bullied. I don`t want anyone to go through this kids should be able to not worry about who`s talking about them and i hope one day they never will.

I have Asbergers Syndrome. When i was in Public School I was bullied by a lot of different people. One day i sat down to pick some dandilions for my teacher in third grade. A girl said move or else, I didnt and she kept threatening me. I walked over to my teacher and told her what happened. Another time i made a friend and she made us do everything she said, if we didnt she would tell all our secrets to the whole school. During the end of the year she joined the cool crowd. So she called me and my friend things like blubber face, losers, and other things. I had the option to be homeschooled. I am now, and will be until next year when i attend high school. I heard she is still a major bully and gossip problem.

i've always'd been bullied, even since 1st grade i've been called, fat,ugly,stupid,and a ton of other things. I have cut before, and tried killing myself. the school principal found out, and she didnt do anything. I get teased a lot, and I'm a vegetarian, and there is a rumor that this kid saw me at McDonalds, and I hate Mcdonalds! :'( and it just kept happening and happening. . .I just want all of this to stop. And I've been rejected before, too many times. I wish all bullying can stop, and the bully-ers realise what there doing is bad.!

Being bullied is hard. It can happen to anyone. The key is not to let it get to you. What truly matters is how you take it. You can either get angry and try to get them back OR brush it off and carry on with your life. It can't hurt you if you don't let it. Always remember that you're not alone. People care about you. Its okay to reach out.

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.’”
