Bullying doesn't just stop when you’re a kid it continues even when you’re an adult. Can people get any shadier? What's up with all this bullying and negativity? Some people just don't know how to grow up. Can't we all get along and stop the judging? Bullying has caused so many self-inflicted deaths over the last few years. All of you who pick on people do not even comprehend the damage you are inflicting on those you victimize.

I feel like everyone has forgotten the two major rules in life: Treat others how you want to be treated, and if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. I'm seeing SO much cyber bullying and people being so nasty to each other it makes me so sad. Everyone, please take time out of your day every day to remember these two rules.
Stop Internet Bullying
Internet bullying makes me sick. Taking a photo of a girl you don't know just so you can mock her about her body on the Internet is just wrong. All the people joining in with the abused and liking the picture are all just as bad. Why is it so hard for people to open their mouth about being bullied. Don’t just step back and let it happen! Bullying has got too far and its leading people do bad things to themselves and it's not OK, so help me in showing everyone it’s time to stop the bullying and grow up.
Millions of people are bullied every year. Some get it from their peers others from their own family. Whether it is physical or mental none of it should be happening. There are some of us that have overcome it. But sadly for others it overcomes them, and unfortunately, we lose beautiful people. No one has the right to make you feel like you don't matter because in the end it’s your life and they have no say. Things need to change, but it takes more than just one to spread the word.
I think it is important to remember that there are two sides to the issue. On one side you have the person who is being bullied. They have been targeted by another person or group of people and are treated poorly, often on a daily basis. Then you have the person or group of people who are the perpetrators. They, too, are suffering: low self-esteem, the pressure to fit in with the bullies for fear that they will be bullied too, and minimal natural supports. I understand the need to address the issue on both sides; that is the only way to help all parties involved.
Stop Bullying: Speak Up Slogans
Why is it so many people in this world speak provocatively and vulgar. Is it because bullies don’t respect themselves anymore? Is it because bullies were not taught respect and manners by family and loved ones or is it because they are hurting inside from all of the abuse they have endured and don’t want anyone to reach their heart or is it because bullies were hurt before and because of the pain they shut people out of their life. We were all young and innocent once. We used to make our own decisions instead of following what the world wanted of us .What has happened where is the respect and caring for one another. For these people, I feel sorry for because they will never progress in life learn from pain and experiences and understand that if bad things did not happen in our life we would not realize the good. The world would be so much better if more people could see with their hearts, not their eyes. We can’t change how others feel what they say or however, we can change how we react and how they affect us and our lives. You can use the following anti-bullying slogans on posters of your high school or in your office and give a peace message in a nice way.
- Bullying behavior is not okay! Those that participate in or condone it should be ashamed of themselves. It only reveals their level of immaturity and they are the ones who are left hurting in the end. I have witnessed karma result in the worst possible ways!! People need to learn from their mistakes, not continue to make the same ones.
- All people are born weak. They only get stronger and better as they grow. On another hand, there is no such person born as a bully. They are probably the people who had been bullied, pressured, and intimidated which in return developed the mindset of being superior, have the goal of having others bend to their will, and have the same bad experience as theirs.
- The mindset of some of these people is just ridiculous. It's a good thing to know that these old farts can still bully people when they have a different opinion. Watch out the world they might come after you next.
- Be mindful of how you treat other people. One's mentality can be fragile at certain points of their lives. Breaking someone else down to build yourself up is the most selfish thing you can do to another person. Bring back humanity and compassion.
- We tell kids it's wrong to bully then we hate because of the job someone does. We say we want peace but we fight when someone is caught doing wrong.
For us, one way to stop bullying is to stand up and speak up. Have a smart conversation with the people who's bullying you to let them know that you’re not as weak as they thought. If that doesn't work, you can report them to your leads and/or HR. In addition to that, we should also identify the people who are part of the bullying department as they could be the weakest link. We should never ignore these types of people. We should help them by identifying who they are and where they are coming from. With all that said, we conclude that understanding the root cause and both sides of the story will end this bullying problem.
Bullies find ways in which to be in charge of a social or work group. Bullies then find weak-minded people, other bullies, those who acquiesce to bullying or those willing to sacrifice their pride or ethics to be afforded things - position, money, and etc.
Bullies are Cowards
It should come as no surprise that bullies are cowards. Their "safety in numbers approach" is derived from primal fears unlocked by events in their lives. They want desperately to be in charge of the events that led to their behavior. They also want to control their immediate circumstances. Bullies are indeed tragic figures. However, that does not mean that those who they seek to bully, who understand some of the circumstances, should give them a free pass. One of the best things that can happen to many bullies is being brought to a position of realization that they cannot control everything and everybody.

When I married my husband 16 years ago, I had my concerns about the future, but really, race wasn't one of them. I thought that beyond the challenges of culture between us personally, my husband's race wouldn't matter. I was so wrong. It took me nearly a decade to get through my head how wrong I'd been in my thinking about race. My husband's race has determined where we can live, our ability to get a mortgage or car loan, his work conditions and even if he comes home in a terrible mood after a run in with someone who felt no need to hide their disdain for my husband's skin tone and facial features. (And yes, on a couple of very rare occasions, that "someone" was a police officer.) Accepting just how wrong I had been about the reality of race was a surprisingly hard thing to do.
Obviously I never was racist - I married a black man. But facing just how bad things are meant facing the fact that there were times when I had looked suffering human beings right in the face, seen their pain and responded not with compassion or concern, but with an argument or a snort and an eye roll. I felt like one of those kids from bad schools who gets to college and discovered that they weren't prepared to do college level work. I had frequently, without even realizing it, failed to perform the most basic task required to be a decent human being; an ability to to care about the suffering of other human beings. That's a pretty harsh reality. But just like with the kid who has been improperly prepared to do college level work, I'm not really the problem. It was inevitable, given the circumstances I was born into. All I could do is recognize my own ignorance and allow myself to be influenced by the African-American men and women who have allowed me to hear their thoughts and experiences. Today I am enormously grateful to and awed by people such as my husband who extended grace and patience to me when I was too clueless to even realize it was being given.

Is it a joke when your not friends with the person? Is it? I got picked on a lot at school for 1 reason: I was the only one who stood up for himself. People tried to bring me down. And it DID hurt. 'Oh, I was only joking sir!'

Who are they to judge, when others are just like them? It is amazng what our world is doing to people who should be friends, not foes.

It is amazing, the outright ignorance which comes out of some peoples mouths. Whether anyone chooses to be offended or not, you have exactly one time for me to read your ignorant, racist [ black or white or Jewish or Hispanic or Native American or whatever] about others and you will be off of my friends list!!

Widespread cyber bullying in indigenous communities. Oppressed for hundreds of years. -Media jumps at opportunity to mention cyber bullying instead of anything else happening to their communities. Can we just censor the whole internet, sell it to Rupert Murdoch and become COMPLETE slaves to media and big business already? It worked great for America!

I am always so shocked to see blatant racism on peoples post. I grew up in Hawaii, we had our punk skater moments i must say. But to see 25 years later that people i associated with would say such foul comments is absolutely ridiculous. I just read that Obama and his ghetto wife should hang from a tree. I speak love as much as possible but I swear i understand why the earth is purging. Ignorance!
Gail Louise Stevenson from Mason City on February 17, 2013:
Hi, I remember some bullies that were real mean when I went to school. One bully was really awful and he would snear and call me this ugly name. He was really ugly! Love is a lot better than bullying, which is hate. I enjoyed reading and voted up! The stop bullying picture is real nice. Bullies don't have the right to judge anybody and the bullies are not perfect at all.
