Anti-Bullying: Original writing

Have you ever walked pass someone who was being bullied and didn’t do nothing? You just watch them or just walk away pretending like nothing happened? Did you even tried to get help or were you too scared that you would be next or you just didn’t care much? Have you ever been a bully yourself? You probably thinking to yourself saying “Never”, “I wouldn’t do that”, “That’s not me” most of you who think that probably lying. Remember when you call someone ugly, fat, loser, pathetic, laugh at them when something embarrassing happen to them…why? Why hurt people who did nothing to you..? Are you happy with yourself, knowing you destroying the pride of someone else? Does people crying give you pleasure of succeeding since you can’t succeed in your own life? Verbal abuse hurts more than actually physical abuse well at least in my opinion. Wounds can always heal but will leave a scar, but words cut deeper than a knife. Those words will forever be carved into your skin never to leave even if you try to forget them…it hard. I wish everyone would know what people would go through when they get bullied. That you are risking something so major that you will never forgive yourself for it. Do you understand what it feel like to be bullied? Do you understand the painful feeling of being hurt repeatedly day after day? No, you probably don’t. Most likely because you’re the one causing it. You the one that make life so hard to live. I’m not saying that it everyone fault for what’s happening because it not, but the only thing I ask of you…for the ones who are the bullies.

STOP.

You have no idea what people are going through these days and you never will, because you don’t take the time to even know them. I wanted to write this blog not only because it’s a serious issue which it is, but also this blog was on a sensitive subject that at most time it was hard for me to find the right words to say for this, I know that anyone who reads this aren’t all bullies but some of you are. This is just a way for me to give out my message. If you see someone that being bullied don’t just stand there. Get a teacher or an adult, no one should be treated like there trash and you shouldn’t allow it to happen.
