Bullying.

Just one word.
That's all it takes.
Continued by many.
Followed by pushing.
Kicking.
Laughing.
Put-downs.
Name-calling.
We wish it will stop.
We try hard to be strong.
To deal with it on our own.
But when we try and ask for help, we get put down and told to 'get over it'.
It's not just physical, it's not just emotional.
It attacks our confidence.
And shatters our Esteem.

It threatens our well-being as we dream.
That maybe, just maybe we'll be treated like everyone else. To feel what it's like to not fear of being hurt.

To those who bully; to those who judge.
Put on the shoes of someone who you have hurt and,
Walk a mile where they have walked.
Feel the feelings that they have felt.

So, do yourself a favor.
Think before you speak.
Think before you do.
'Cause you never know; the victim could someday be you.

Then you will realize that your words nor your actions were ever that cool.

I have been bullied relentlessly for a very long time. I know what it feels like when you are put down, when people call you nasty names, or start rumours that are definitely not true. After moving, the bullying became less and less and I finally felt as though I belong; however, itís still out there. Even my own brother is being bullied at school...not just by students but his own teacher as well. People say that itís all in our heads and that we should get over it. How can we when the words and actions made towards us on a daily basis make us feel as though we are not worth to be here? The scars from the turmoil that they have put us through will always be there, no matter what."

It is a problem and for those of you who think it isn't then maybe you should open your eyes. This is something that really must be stopped.

Here is a link to a project that is being done for Bullying. It's called You Will Rise

[link]

For any of you who are wanting to help with the project and helping to rise the awareness of how bullying not only effects the victims but those around us.

Please help stop this.

yea.....for me hte bullying has no end or hope in sigt.....but those few seconds in the day when i see a friends face even just their back pack i feel better. but it got so bad i had been crying after i got home and every thing....summer vacation was the best thing ever. and it got really bad when even the teacher bullied me too. and my friends. we tried to stand up we even cheered that we were proud to be different and we were proud to show it but to no avail but we still had fun together. but it got so bad eventually mom managed to make dad let me be home schooled......as for my friends.....i pray for their wellbeing for the world is cruel and i understand how they feel........we all know the crushing of a bully as they wreak havok on our lives and hearts. Speak up! we just have to keep speaking up.. it will stop at least some of it.....but it cant fix it all
bullying causes suffereng....
shame....and anguish.
and the kids at scool make you feel....
weak. i pray for all my fellow outcasts. cause were the ones who will be the ones who are really success full.....if we can survive it

Superb writing on a serious epidemic that seems to have no end. I have been one of the fortunate who has never really felt the effects of bullying, but I've seen it happen and it crushes my heart. This world is in desperate need of love. Hopefully your words will someday show a bully the errors of their ways.

Thank you.
When I was bullied it may not have been to the extremes as what it is today, but it was bad to the point I didn't want to go to school...and...I probably shouldn't say this, but suicidal thoughts had entered my mind during my school years.
I hope so, because the world is going downhill, and darkness is practically consuming it.
Again, thanks so much for the wonderful comment.

:( That's the power of bullying. And it needs to stop. But I'm so glad you're still here with us. You had the strength to overcome those ferocious attacks and now you can survive anything that comes your way. Unfortunately, we are entering dark days, but hopefully we as a society will find the light once more.

Yeah, it's getting ridiculous and people are getting in trouble for using discipline on their children. Thanks, I'm glad to be here and away from those who had caused it. I'm glad I moved away from Nova Scotia, I found quite a few friends and confidence where I am now :D They say; "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" :)

What kids need now is more discipline...some people I have talked to has said to bring back the strap at schools...sometimes I wonder if that isn't such a far-fetched idea, to be honest
