All my life I have seen bullying happen around me, as I am sure everyone has. I have been the bully but also the bullied. I didn't have it as bad as some kids but bullying non the less still hurts in any type and form. I used to watch others get bullied never say anything and sometimes agree as long as it wasn't me being bullied. I was also the girl who had funny teeth growing up. In school I sometimes didn't hang out with the best crowd, I got into bad things. I always thought I would like to go back to high school and do over again. Maybe be more social, try a sport, maybe i'd have more friends and have different experiences. In high school everyone tries their best to fit in and it doesn't matter what you do to fit in. I was one of those people. Yes, I was nice but I just would always go with a crowd even if it meant hurting someone else. Last year is when I really changed. I started going to the different school in the same town. I was away from my friends and put with a new group. I found myself focusing more on graduating instead of caring what people thought. Pals, my school, is where I learnt how to be the person I wanted to be. Last year I had a rude awakening. The most scariest thing you can ever hear is someone in your family talking about suicide. They said they wanted to kill themselves because of bullies. I cried for days. Even had nightmares of them going through with it. I don't ever want them to feel this way.. ever. So here I am, trying to make a difference, trying to spread the word and help stop bullying. I don't want people to feel bad about themselves anymore. Don't ever think of suicide because there is always a better answer. And for the bullied, be strong your day will come when you don't have to live in fear of being you.
