For as long as I can remember, i've been a victim of bullying in many forms. Whether it was from my parents, peers or sometimes even parents of my peers. I've always had problems with my weight & people would make sure I knew about that. I've been verbally put down for the past 6 or so years of my life. In Middle School I ended up with a selfharm problem because of all the hate that I was getting from my fellow classmates. My problem was serious but somehow classmates found out about it & made even more jokes to the point where I was going to end my life. Going into High School I thought everything would get better because the students would be more mature but I was so wrong. My selfharm issue continued on up until my Junior year (I am currently in the middle of) because I started to realize that I can stand up to people who try & put me down with their words. Most of them hid behind computers & were too afraid to say anything to my face after I had stood up to someone & gotten help from an adult. Being 16 years old, you see a lot of bullying whether it's from the internet, school or even out in public places. I want to help stop this because I don't want anyone to go through the same issues I did. We all deserve to be loved & we all deserve to be happy & have a chance to succeed without being constantly shut down by negative comments. Bullying needs to stop.
