Bullying can cause people to have depression and one day when they might feel like they cannot take anymore of it and try to hurt themselves. I know this because I have been bullied also.Lets try to prevent bullying instead of being the bully.

I support The Bullying Project because I have been bullied also and I know how it makes people feel and what it can cause them to do. I do not want people to feel the same way I did. It can cause depression and for people not to know who they can trust.
