    Bullying in school.

    Hi, My name is Kylie, and I am 19 years old. I feel strongly about bullying, because I have been bullied in the past. I hope you all find my article helpful. I hope that you enjoy reading it. And i believe that anyone reading this article that has been bullied, is taking the first step by reminding yourself, that you may be being bullied.



    For as long as I remember, there has been some kind of bullying in schools. Whether you weren't smart enough, your appearance, even your personality wasn’t good enough were some of the reasons why bullying took place.
    I hate how some people can bully another person because they aren’t like them, and because they see something in another they don’t like about themselves. Bullying begins at an early age, and I think it’s wrong. We have so much pain and suffering in this world as it is, why do we need one more thing? Can you not see that it is about not treating others fairly and that it’s wrong?
    Many schools say they have certain policies in place, but if/when you try and report it, they don’t do anything about it.
    How can some people be so judgmental on how other people are, do they think it’s fair to judge another person because they are different than them? How can that be right?
    Who gave YOU the right to judge another person?
    Do you wonder why there is so many people with mental illness today? Maybe it is because one of the main factors for it, is due to the neglect and ignornce of schools today.
    Do you really think that being bullied to whatever extent isn’t going to harm that person not only physically, but emotionally, mentally and intellectually?
    If only people would do something to stop this happening, do you really think there would be so many people with depression, low self-esteem, and confidence issues? I don’t think so.
    It’s because of what happens in schools, that causes them to think negatively about themselves, to actually try and want to suicide. How can it be right? The victims of bullying just go unnoticed, people don’t seem to care, about the victims, most people just pass by, without giving a thought to how that person must be feeling.
    I was bullied for all my high school life, and it’s not a nice feeling.
    No matter how many times you report it nothing gets done, and I think that is wrong. It shouldn’t be that way. There should be something in place to stop this from happening. I am not saying you can stop it totally, because you probably can’t but isn’t it worth trying to at least stop some of it?
    Through the bullying I experienced, everything inside of me got depressed pretty quick, lonleyness was my safest and best friend. I know what it’s like and there must be other people that are like me, but I am beating the bullies, I am saying stop to all of the memories of hurt and fear.
    I'm saying, you can too. I am not saying that violence, or self-destruction is the answer because we all know that they doesn’t solve anything. But you can’t let them get away with it, make sure something is done, tell a teacher, tell your parents, tell as many people as you can, so they can help you. If nothing is done just keep telling, until someone gets the message. You have to fight your way through this life, and you don’t want to be miserable for the rest of your life, so remember you can beat it. You are strong enough, just listen to that inner voice of yours. And stand and be proud.
    I hope that this has helped, and this is only my point of view and I respect that everyone else has other opinions than I do. So I am just trying to give my opinion and what has helped for me. I hope it helps even just a little bit.
