    Back in the 7th grade, I was bullied the popular kids called me things like "stupid" and "retard" because of my autism, every time I told them to stop they'd call me worse names, one time a girl in my class went up to me and said "no one likes you" for no reason! I remember another time a boy threw rocks at me, I tried telling the teacher about but they never did anything about it, I used to come home crying because of the bullying and I didn't have very few friends. I'm older now and I want to tell anyone else who's. Been bullied to keep your head up high, bullies are people who want to make you feel bad to make. Themselves feel good you're prefect just the way you are and no one has the right to make you feel horrible about yourself, to anyone who is a bully I want you to stop it's not cool or funny to be mean to other people some of the things you say can really hurt someone.

    It started my sophomore year when I was 16. I had been attending a performing arts high school, but became very sick and had to switch to a regular high school. I knew only a few people, but made friends very quickly. I started talking to a boy that was a year older than me, and that was probably the worst thing to ever happen to me. His group of friends started tweeting mean things about me, and he just stopped talking to me. Everyone kept saying that it would just blow over, but it only got worse. My closest group of friends were guys, which didn't help anything. There were rumors that I hooked up with the entire hockey team, that I had sex with 4 boys in one night, the list went on and on. Everyone called me the slut. The girls in my grade stopped talking to me, rather than sticking up for me, in fear that they would be treated the same way. I completely shut down. I didn't try in school, I didn't communicate with my parents, I didn't hang out with anyone. And from there it only got worse. People said I was a "thirsty bitch" and a "puck slut" and that I "transferred schools because I had gone through all of the guys at my old school". Then, the night before the last day of school, my school has a tradition where everyone goes out to egg each other's houses. My house was targeted by everyone. Only, they took it to the extreme. They had eggs, paintballs, and I later found out that they were planning on burning "slut" into my yard. Someone drove by and saw me outside; they called me a "f*cking slut". Then all of a sudden about 6 cars full of people pulled up to my house. Things along the lines of "let's f*ck this bitches house up" were being said. Thank God they all got scared when they saw me and my parents outside. We called the cops and the cops stayed outside my house the rest of the night to make sure they didn't come back. On the last day of school, the upperclassmen lined the sidewalks as we walked in. They cheered for everyone. And then when I walked through I got booed. The teachers outside didn't do anything. People started tweeting at me saying I was a bitch and what not. Girls were looking for me supposedly so they could start a fight with me. A total of maybe 3 people talked to me that day. I was numb. I didn't cry once that day. I didn't eat. I didn't pay attention in class. I was ready to give up. And if it weren't for the boy who came over and apologized, who is now my absolute best friend, I wouldn't be able to tell this story today. I confronted many people about everything. Some apologize, some still act like I'm worthless, and some act like it never happened. I pray to God that no one ever gets treated the way I did. That no one ever feels as worthless as I did. I'm sick of my school not doing anything. I want to help Stomp Out Bullying. Read more »

    I am currently being bullied. I receive text messages from unknown numbers calling me names and telling me to go die or to kill myself. The bullies made a fake instagram account of me calling me fat and other rude names. I became a member of STOMP Out Bullying because I want to raise awareness that bullying shouldn't be taken lightly and that we can come together to make a difference. Bullying hurts, and it's a very real situation that needs to be stopped. If you're getting bullied remember to Stay Strong and don't give up. You can get through it. Read more »

    I've recently lost my cousin who was more like a little brother to bullying for being gay. He was only 15. Isn't that too young to end your life? Our family feels we didn't do much to hear his cries. Even though he was so full of life.. We never saw it coming but that's what you call "Hiding Pain" ... why? He had a host of friends and family who loved him and always listened. I think bullying is awful and unreasonable. Suicide makes it even worse because its just like someone pushing you off a cliff, you can't help but fall when someone pushes you. I never had bullying hit so close to home and stand in front of my door. I've always been against bullying especially after the great documentry on Netflix. I just want the person who's reading this that is facing bullying to run to the closest person to you or even a book and talk/and or write every piece of mind you have. You are loved by the man above and the person INSIDE YOU! Read more »

    Alright to start this off I lost two people to bullying. One was my 15 year old brother and my dad. I lost my brother, Jeffrey, 3 months ago. He was picked on for being skinny, being a little goofy, crying because he was so caring and a softy, being himself. I loved him. He was my sidekick. We did everything together. My mom, dad, and I reported it to the school who has a bullying police. They did absolutley nothing. Now on to my dad. We lost him less then a week ago. He lost his son, who just got close to him, they finially started doing more together, talking, doing silly stuff. They were amazing people . They both committed suicide. Now my mom and I are the only two left out of 4 people in our close knit family. We did everything together. I miss them like crazy. We lost two people because someone had to pick on my little brother, because someone had to belittle him, because he was himself. I am way against bullying and hope people underunderstand that bullying can tear a family apart. Read more »
