Cyber-Bullying is a world problem that makes teenagers and kids commit suicide almost everyday. These people who get bullied and/or Cyber-Bullied make themselves feel insecure, sad and depressed. The bullies usually don't think that they are hurting people but they actually do. These bullies are also motivated by jealousy, hatred and envy. I am one of those kids who get bullied almost everyday for my liking's, style, and weight.
Aden's Friend Alyssa
This is my best friend Alyssa. She is one of the best people in the world and i'm just glad that she is still alive today because, truly and honestly I couldn't live without her. On her birthday, April 5, She was going to commit suicide just because she received hate from instagram and her real life. I had no idea she was going to do this until she posted a pic on instagram about wanting to kill herself. This devastated me since I was talking to her the whole day and had no idea about it. I'm glad that I did though because in that post she said that I had saved her life since I was only giving her compliments and apparently confidence. I almost started to cry really knowing that my bestie was going to kill herself on her birthday. Because of this I promised her that I would move to Austin Texas when I receive my drivers license and protect her from her bullies. If a guy dissed her i would knock the lights out of him. She is my best friend and i would take a bullet for her. No one deserves to be bullied that much, Especially Alyssa.
Oakley's Bully Story
I was bullied a lot in the third grade because I was the tattletale so I don't blame anyone but myself. It got to the point wear I told on every one until some kids got mad because I said that they had their phones out so he slammed my head on the desk and then I woke up at my house and the kids were expelled.
Aden's Bully Story
I have been bullied for mostly my entire life but it mostly started happening in the third grade. The first time I was bullied it was just by people calling me gay and stealing my backpack. This really didn't affect me that much since I knew that I was amazing no matter what people said but when I started 5th grade, it grew into more bullying and not just stealing my backpack but calling me fat and punching me from time to time. Around that time I joined Facebook but not much bullying happened on there. Truly, I was only focusing on passing my grades. So as the years passed I gained friends and enemies. The time came to where I was 13 and I was so excited since I had received my first phone. Since I had a phone I decided to create a instagram and it has been a cool but also bad experience. Since I had a lot of enemies, they started bullying me on instagram calling me gay and saying that I am the worst and ugliest person in the world. Because of this I created an anti-bully group on instagram and it has a lot of supporters already and we try to stop bullying around the world.
