I support The Bully Project because I used to be bullied without knowing it. When I was in 5th grade I transefered schools. It was great, I made close friends, or so I thought. Come 6th grade I befriended someone just to have them stab me in the back. I didn't even know until my mom found a note about it and showed me. I stopped talking to her and all was well. Then in 7th grade my 'friends' would pick petty fights with me, would say stuff about me behind my back. They would also bully other that I knew and would get mad at me for telling them to stop. They made my life miserable and I had no clue how. I eventually stopped hanging with them and I became happier.
I'm in 8th now and people rarely try to bully me because I have accepted the fact that I am me, not to metion my extraordinary temper. I hang out with the social 'outcasts', the people who speak there mind and who have been bullied and those who currently are being bullied. We are crazy and proud to say the least. We stand up for each other and laugh at the people who are surprised we have the guts to. With the help of them I can now laugh at the people who hate me to my face and call out the ones who hate me behind my back. I can now say proud to be weird, I can now stand up for myself and others.
Me getting bullied was one of the worst things, not knowing who to trust or what someone will say about you. Bullying is unacceptable and needs to be stopped, but you can always find the good in the bad.
