When I was a kid I was lucky enough to make it by without getting bullied. My fear of possibly getting bullied, however, kept me from stepping out of my shell. Its confusing as a kid, not really knowing to run, or stand up for yourself, and I chose to hide instead. It was safer to go unnoticed, but missing out on playing and laughing was unfortunate. I felt just as outcast as any bullied kid. Stress, confusion, and frustration were all I felt during school; kids that actually got bullied felt twice as bad as I did.
Now that I'm older, I feel bad for kids that aren't able to run around, to enjoy the fact that they are kids - wild and free. I want to stand up for those kids. They shouldn't have to be so confused and worried. Unlike me, I want them to be able to genuinely smile, and enjoy their childhood.
