    On vine people are so mean! They always have something negative to say about anything and everything. I spoke out before against mean comments about on vine about a man in drag. He looked beautiful but of course people always have something to say and so somebody lashed out against me and called me a fag as well as the guy in the vine. This girl also called me ugly and fat and threatened me and she's never even met me to judge anything about me. All the bullying is unnecessary. Why do we all have to judge and be so mean to each other? Why can't we just all make love and have love for one another? Read more »

    My story has a very positive ending that can be hopeful for current bullying victims, so stay tuned (or skip to the end). When I was growing up in New York, I was bullied from about 4th grade through 8th in public school, I transferred to a Catholic HS and that was so much better, no bullying problem in HS. But during my middle school years, it was horrible, and this was before social media, AOL Instant Messenger was just starting to get popular, so I'm very thankful that my experience was before cyberbullying started happening. They bullied me because I was overweight, not very athletic or good at sports, I was good at math and science, it was more than 10 years ago so I don't even remember completely. I do remember the girl I had a crush on in 6th and 7th grade turning me down and, while she was never actively a bully, she sat back and didn't do or say anything while others bullied me even over that. I never wanted to harm myself, that thought never crossed my mind. There were times that I wanted to harm others, and I was scared. I terrified myself one time when I felt I truly understood the motives behind the Columbine High School shooting. The school administration didn't take it seriously because it was mostly verbal bullying, they figured it can't be bullying if nobody is getting physically injured. One guidance counselor took the problem seriously, and so did my parents, but nobody in higher authority at the school bothered to listen. The public schools in my area are set up that you're basically with the same group of kids from kindergarten through 12th grade. So after 8th grade I transferred out to Catholic high school, and that was one of the best things I ever did. Here's the hopeful part: Within 2 months of graduating college, I got probably the best job offer I could imagine, so I moved out of my mom and dad's place, moved 1/4 the way around the planet, and now live in Hawaii and working in direct support of the brave men and women in the armed forces. Want to know whatever happened to those who used to bully me? They still live with their parents, hanging out still with only each other, not being productive at all in society. Some have served time in jail on either drug charges or DWI. And here I am, of everyone my age I knew growing up, I'm one of the most successful. Oh, I almost forgot, I also have an amazing girlfriend, and I couldn't be happier with how my life is today. Read more »

    I started getting bullied in Middle school. At first, I didn't think much about it, but it continued to get worse. The words "ugly, fat, nasty, worthless, etc." played over and over in my head. In seventh grade, I made a new friend. She became my best friend. But her best friend moved back in town and she started hanging out with her more. Her friend began talking about me and she didn't stick up for me. Not even once that I know of. Then in seventh grade, two boys who continued with their jokes, even adding people into it made me want to end my life. But, the friend I was talking about earlier (my best friend) went to the guidance counselor and showed her a note, and in it I wrote "I want to die." The counselor talked to me, and my parents. The police were also involved and it did help. I'm in high school now, and I've made plenty of friend to help me along the way. And most of them are going through what I went through. My friends and I, we have scars. We help others along the way. It's hard, and I have my days. Who doesn't? At times, I still wake up and hate myself. But I'm overcoming it the best I can, and it's helping. After seeing my friend (Kelsey) get sent away for cutting herself, I realized I should stop. What if she killed herself? What if I did too? That's when I realized it's time to quit. But, I finally found my 2 very best friends. One is named Katie, the other Jake. I'm not going to put online why they have been bullied, but they've helped me out so much. No one should have to deal with bullying. If any of you are going through bullying, I'm so sorry. Suicide is NOT the answer. That's forever. But this "bullying" I know it will past. Find someone to talk to. Someone you can trust. Talk to someone, Anyone. Get help. Stomp Out Bullying! Read more »

    I recently found this amazing organization through a school project on how social media can help support human rights. I chose your organization because I felt it really helps make a difference, not only to educate about bullying, but to prevent it in many ways. This last spring I saw one of the most terrible effects of bullying that I felt was necessary to discuss. My best friend since First Grade's brother was bullied and took his own life at just 13. He was an amazing boy and had so much ahead of him. Ever since this experience I can honestly say I am doing everything I can to help stop anything like this in the future! Read more »

    I maybe an adult now but I was a child in school once too. I am really pale with freckles and if that wasn't enough my mother is gay. Plus we moved a lot so I was generally the new kid. All of this, needless to say, was quite a lot of ammo for bullies. However when growing up I didn't get comforted or have resources taught to me to help deal with bullying. Thankfully today is different. I'm a mother of a child with disabilities, cerebral palsy. She is six years old and in first grade. She dreams of bring a dancer in music videos, loves Doctor Who, Korean culture, and wants to adopt six girls when she grows up. And while I think she is just amazing and fun, people around her that don't know her don't know this. They see a little girl with leg braces and in a walker. Children are sometimes scared of the walker and afraid to approach her. They ask insensitive questions. Adults, while not as rude generally don't always help, they fear what she can't do or that she could induce liability if she were injured. I just wanted to share and spread the word. Alienation is a form of bullying. It hurts the person/child in this case and it hurts the parent/me when I have to hear that my happy fun loveable crazy girl feels alone. Thank you, STOMP out bullying for everything you do. I believe change will only be achieved through education, awareness, and understanding. Thank you again. Read more »
