Raise Awareness

The Girl you just called fat? She has lost over 30lbs.
The Boy you just called stupid? He has a learning disability & studies for 4 hours every night.
The Girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her.
The Boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home.

Put this on your blog if you're against bullying. You never know what its like until you walk a mile in their shoes.Did you know every 7 seconds a student skips school, just to avoid being picked on? Bullying isn't something you should take lightly.

Do you know what if feels like to be called ugly? Or a loser? Or lame? Told no one will ever love you? That you'll never get a date? That you'll never amount to anything and your dream will never come true?

Well I do. It's the worst feeling in the world and I hate seeing people go through the pain I went through for so long. I still haven't recovered from the damage my bully has done to me. It shouldn't be like this for kids out there in the world. It's not right. They shouldn't fear going to school or be embarrassed about the things they like or how they dress.

I mean, we all say things about people behind closed doors. Even I am guilty of that. But at least I know it's wrong. I would never say it to their face and purposely try to embarrass them and make them feel bad about themselves.

Because now when I think about that girl everyone calls fat, I think of the pain she's going through, and I hate it.

So put this on your blog if you want to take a stand against bullying.

My teacher called me fat, and ever since then I have been complaining more and more about my "thunder thighs" and "My bingo arms," My friends say I'm normal, but even though I found the whole thing funny at first it did leave some damage.

And yes, I have been told that I will never get a date, but thats just because I tell everyone that I can't date till I'm eighteen

Si I will copy and paste this to the blog to raise awareness of bullying!

No one has ever really said anything directly to my face, but I know people laugh and say bad things about me. And it's always hard, honestly answering questions like "What music do you like?" Because I'm always afraid of saying an answer everyone will laugh at or something.

Anyway, posting this on my blog =)

I'll be putting this on my copy and paste page. AMEN! Great post. I've been bullied and pushed around when I was younger. Now, I know that I'm the one who is in control, and I don't have to be walked all over. I've been called fat, and 'chubby' by my cousin, sister, and in the past, people I've considered friends. But I kknow that I'm not. I'm 'normal' and I'm healthy, which is most important. Excellent Post Paige. ;)
