During my life, I've been in both roles. I have been the bully, but I've also been the bullied. In elementary school, I called other kids names and told jokes about them. At the time, I didn't realize I was being an awful person but that does not make it right, and I live with those regrets everyday. However, as I grew older, and I went through the changes, i was made fun of because of how i looked. 8th grade is when it was at its worst. I had just moved to a knew school, and i had no friends. I was a loner, and was made fun of 24/7. I contemplated suicide on a number of occasions, but i knew i couldn't let them win. I was determined to change the course of my life. I started going to the gym, with the going of winning. More importantly, i realized that all people should be treated with love and compassion no matter how they looked or who they love. I changed my mood about people, and started treating them like people. in conclusion, i learned that people need to be treated with all the love and compassion in the world. Also, I've learned that bullies can't win. Bullying is a problem with a much needed answer. If you're being bullied, tell the world. Do not be scared my friends, because people can and will help you.
