Bullied survivors, let's unite to stand strong with young victims of today's bullying!
Header for my message board


Bullying is something that breaks my heart. Hearing the stories of suicides of our young people hits especially hard - because as a bullied teen myself, I contemplated taking my own life on an almost daily basis.

My story, "The Dropout, has already brought forth one member who shared her heart-breaking story of being bullied. There is no shame or judgement here - only cleansing.

If you think you might be a bully, but aren't sure, think about how you joke around with friends - are you making anyone in particular the butt of your jokes? If so, is that person laughing? There's a difference in joking around and being intentionally cruel. If you're not sure that your friend knows you're only joking, tell them, and ask how they really feel about it. Do you make fun of other people based on color, size, gender, intellect, sexual preference, how they talk, how they dress, how they look - or for any reason, you might be a bully. Perhaps these posts might shed new light on how others feel when treated a certain way.

I feel the need to remind members that rudeness will not be allowed here - whether it be toward the original poster, or toward anyone who replies thereafter. Everyone here is entitled to an opinion. The "I was not talking to you," attitude is a form of bullying in and of itself. Thank you for understanding.

This is a place where members both young and old can share their stories, give advice, empathize with others, and perhaps heal some old wounds along the way. The lesson here is, although words can hurt and even leave scars for years to come, they will NOT break us! *Heart*
