P: I want to apologize for making you feel like you do not belong in our school community. You make our school a stronger, happier place and I never wanted to hurt you. What was written on the note I gave you was disgusting, I do not believe what the note said and I can't imagine how those disturbing words made you feel. You have always been such an amazing friend to me and I hate that I treated you this way. Words cannot explain the regret and remorse I feel about this whole situation. I am so sorry, and I know sorry will never be enough for what I did. I wish I could change things to how they used to be but I want you to know that I love you and you mean so much to me. - A

Jonah: Hi Abby, I want to sincerely and deeply apologize for continuing to remind you about the UMBC - Virginia game from last year's March Madness.

I promise to be more considerate in the future. Love, Jonah - Abby

Cat: My apology is too late but I still apologize often. I took advantage of a girl at a party and she didn't remember.. when she was bullied about it and found out later she was devastated! She had to deal with it because of something horrible that i did and was never looked at the same. At first i denied it ashamed myself. But later in years i wrote her on 'myspace' and reconnected apologizing the best I could. Explaining the peer pressure and idiotsy of the alcohol. She was okay but never really forgave me. I didn't expect her to! We stayed friends and later became friends on Facebook. Months later she died of an overdose. She's one of the most beautiful girls I know. Even though she heard my apology, I want other girls to know how important it is to apologize. Even tho I wasn't bullying her, I was the cause of so much hurt. I still look up and apologize often.. sometimes cry. I never meant to hurt another girl! I'm sorry - Tab

Cici: I'm sorry for everything. You and L both claimed to be my best friends and I agreed. We were great together, what could change? But you and Lizzy grew in different directions and you pulled me with you. Soon, I was going back and forth telling your secrets and telling her secrets and smiling like everything was alright. I saw your scars and each time, I pouted and made sad faces, warning you to not do it again. But deep inside I thought you did it for attention. I don't know why I thought something so mean. I was the gossip girl and all gossip I heard meant gossip that had to be spread. I'm sorry. For all the lies I told, all the truth I didn't, the secrets I spilled and most importantly, the friendship I broke - Gaby (and Lizzy)

Cici: Cat, I'm so sorry for what I did. We were BEST friends and the moment you got distant, I got mad. I was so focused on the thought of "Oh my God, she left me!"

I'm sorry. - Catherine

Eliza: Dear My Friends, For the past few years I've been a shadow. I took you for granted, whispered untruths, and left you alone when you needed me most.

You. You are the most important people in my life, and I am sorry that I failed you. I want to tell you that it is not a sin to be happy. In fact, you deserve it. When your strength fails, I'll support you. I am no longer a shadow. - everyone

Greenleaf: I was bullied throughout my middle school years. It took a while, but eventually everything got better. I'm in high school now and I've made so many new friends. I'm thankful for my mom who was there for me while I was being bullied, and for pushing to get the school to do something. I am also thankful to my best friend who made me feel happy again. Everything gets better eventually, just remember that there is always someone rooting for you, even if you don't know them. -

Michael Schulman: My 11 year-old daughter attended one of your assemblies yesterday at her school, and she had some interesting comments to make on our ride home. Although she (and I) appreciate the positive intention and mission statement of your campaign, my daughter felt that the exclusionary nature of the program, limited only to girls, actually had the effect of enforcing negative stereotypes of the archetypal "mean girl," as if boys were not also the victims and perpetrators of bullying. While I realize the limited scope of your program, I don't believe my daughter is completely wrong in her analysis. While I think we can all agree that kindness is a positive virtue, she felt that--by limiting your message to girls--it was reinforcing societal modeling that the most important thing was to be a "good girl" who passively accepts the status quo and shies away from confrontation. Meanness is unacceptable behavior from anyone, regardless of their gender. When you identify an issue as being limited to, or primarily focused on one gender over another, you run the risk of unintentionally perpetuating and defining the very patterns of behavior you are trying to eradicate. -

savage_climber: I was at my friends house and we were watching mean girls. She had an idea to make a burn book. I knew it was a bad idea but i made the book any ways. She told me to bring it to school to give to her so i did and i gave it to her. I never saw the book again so i had no idea what she did or didn't write in it. I thought the book was off my hands but it wasn't. She told everybody who asked about it that it was MY book to express my negative feelings towards people. But that was a big lie. Someone ended up telling the teachers so my friends, a girl who thought she was in it, and me went to the principles office. We got ISS for one day and NOW i definently know my lesson. -

Julie: Arden, I am so sorry you killed yourself. I am not sure if it was me our your crappy family life, but either way I miss you like heck and I don't know if I can go on without you. It has been three months and I apologize to you every day and I pray for you. I never should have hang out with Rachelle and her clique and I never should have made up so many rumors about you. I just wanted to look "cool" and I didn't know that they were hurting you. I still hung out with you but you were never happy. One time at a sleepover we had I remember waking up, looking over, and seeing those scars on your arms. We were only 12, and I thought you were fine, that this was just a phase, or that was were you tested some makeup. I never understood that you were trying to end your life. You wrote me a note and told me that it wasn't my fault and by the time I read that you would have hung yourself. I never believed it and I always knew it was my fault and I am so so so so sorry I spread fake rumors about you. In the back of my mind I always knew that was wrong but I did it anyway because I so wanted to be liked. - Arden's Angel

LionGirl: In 4th grade, this girl on my bus use to mess with me a lot. She would take my seat (at the very back) and only let her "friends" sit with her. Every time I tried to sit with her, she would put her feet where I would sit, only to leave me sitting in the seat in front of where she was sitting. And when I sat there, she would bop my head multiple times if she had a paper towel roll. I told her to stop, but she wouldn't. One time, when I sat with her, she tried to move me out of the seat by pushing me, but I held my ground. Then, she pinched me really hard and it broke the skin, but it didn't bleed. I still didn't move. She finally moved to the seat next to my seat. I didn't know why I didn't tell my bus driver or parents this, but I finally did when she kicked my right foot with her foot. Once again, I told her to stop, but she didn't. My parents reported this on the TIPS incident reporting website. The girl was moved to the very front as punishment on the bus. I am now in 5th grade. The girl is still on my bus, but she leaves me alone. If you by any chance happen to read this, girl, I hope you know how I felt when you did these mean things to me. And I hope we can be friends. -

Alex: I pledge to laugh with others and not at, to accept others for who they are, to be myself and allow others to be themselves - Marshall

Alexandria Sauer: My seventh and eighth grade years were the worse than all my life in the world. I had no friends and no matter how much I talked to them they never truly got to know my. Back in sixth grade I had the best friend in the whole world. Then my family and I moved from Sedalia to Marshall. I lost touch with her about a month after school let out for summer break. Then at my new school I was so excited that it was small and I would to be able to make some great friends. However I was new and from a big school and everyone already knew each other. I was cast aside. I toke up reading because everyone there teased me, called me names, and talked about me behind my back. It all started when in the first month of school someone put a kick me sign on my back. The person who did it never calmed that they did it so it was believed that I did it to myself for attention. I talk to nobody and on the first day of my freshman year a girl I thought was my friend ignored me on the bust to school. Honestly with out my friend from Sedalia and my friends here I might not be here today. -

Caris: I am in 6th grade and one of my "friends" started bullying someone who wasn't as "popular". I didn't know about this until the girl who was being bullied came up to me and said, "I need your help, please stay by my side, please". At this point, I knew it was serious. I sat with her in every class and at lunch so my "friends" couldn't come over and bully her. She was so greatful! I don't regret a single thing, and now I have a very good group of friends who are really nice! -

Meredith: Being bullied hurts. In fourth grade my "friends" talked behind my back and the whole grade decided to make fun of me, which lead to depression that I still deal with today. When I was in sixth grade my "friends" would send me mean emails and I still deal with depression from bullying: but just know in the end everything will be okay. - Meredith- -

Natalie: Dear Sydney, I know I probably should have written this a little bit ago, but then I didn't realize how great, awesome and cool of a person you are. And you are on of the nicest people on earth. You should never EVER change your clothes, personality and especially yourself! I was just a big jerk, and when you felt disrespected and hurt, I was hurt more because I was missing out on how great of a person you are and stay exactly the same because you're a wonderful person and I am just asking for one favor: be yourself because you are an amazing beautiful talented and funny person. Sincerely, Natalie - Sydney

Miriam Janette Rodriguez : Someone once told me "You catch more flies with honey!" Not exactly sure why I would want to catch flies. This sentence did stick and I remind myself of it every day because we all need some support from time to time. Support each other. #Unity - Lynwood

Madison: In 5th Grade, there was this girl who claimed to be my friend, but she would always talk about me behind my back, and always put me down, and exclude me from things. I tried to stop associating with her, but that always made it worse because she would talk about me more, and when I wasn't around her, she would try to nice to me so I would hang with her. And she would always love talking about others, but when they talk about her she becomes the devil. She's sat at my lunch table and always made the other girls be mean to me too, so I moved lunch tables. -

Lauren: In 6th grade, I was new to the district and I was happy to have been invited into a group of girls, but they weren't actually very nice. I had met another new girl named Nicole in one of my classes and I tried to get her into my new group, but after a few weeks, these mean girls told me they didn't want her associated with their group. She was dorky with glasses and apparently she didn't measure up to their definition of "cool". It was up to me to tell her she was unwanted and it was obvious that if I didn't I would be shunned from the group as well. So, I told this poor girl that she was unwanted and unwelcome to sit with us. I was usually the defender of bullies and I had become the bully myself. Nicole was nice and humble and a way better person than any of us. I spent the next three years in that group and I never felt connected to any of them. Their core values of friendship didn't include humility, compassion, or polite consideration. They valued the extrinsic. Nicole, I'm so sorry to have done that to you. I'm sorry I had to learn this lesson by hurting you. - Nicole

Katherine : This girl manipulated me and stepped all over me just to get the guy she wanted. I liked the guy and the guy liked me so she was so jealous. I suffered from depression and it was bad -

sherleen: I said a few things about a girl in my class. But some of my classmates started to does a rumor about the girl. Even though I didn't start the rumor I still still feel bad for her. But the truth is also that because of that girl everyone was against me. She also used to talk at my back. -

Taylor: I'm sorry if I have been mean to any of you girls or boys out there. Usually, I'm a nice girl with polite manners. But sometimes, if someone messes with me too much, I tend to get really peeved at them. I also have momentary thoughts of wanting to hit them because they are really annoying and yell at them or growl words at them. I'm sorry if I have messed with any of you girls/boys if you have messed with me. Please forgive me. ~Taylor - Anyone I have messed with

Taylor: Dear Margaret, I feel SO sorry for you. To be honest with you, if I went to that school, I'd give that boy a piece of my mind and always stick up for you. You'd would definitely be my BFF. I would never let someone treat you like that. I would NEVER let any girl (even if I don't like them) be bullied by a meanie. To those who have been bullied, I wish I could've been there for you. I would have really want to be a friend to you. If we could all be friends, we could stop any bullying that goes on in our school and make our own Kind Club. I'm in a Kind Club at my school. It's really fun. :) Anyway, I would defend any girl who is being bullied by a mean girl OR boy. Every girl should raise awareness for girl-against-girl "crime." No one should be treated how Margaret or any other girls are being treated. Please raise awareness, girls. female bullying must be stopped. God bless you all. ~Taylor -

Jeniffer: I pledge to help people being bullied to change the whole world - Davao

Margaret@ND: I wasn't necessarily bullied by a girl. I was bullied by a boy. In fifth grade, I really liked learning and reading, and was a big part of class activities. He would call me names behind my back to the other girls, so no one wanted to be my friend. He would push me against lockers and into the playground wood chips until my knees were bleeding. I had no friends. My only friend was the teacher, and to be honest she didn't really care. It really effected me, and no one, not even the teachers, tried to help. -

Adleen@ND: Ive talked about people behind their back for supporting racism -

Michaela @ND: In 3rd grade I had a girl who bullied me a lot and would convince everyone in my grade to join in. One day it was making everyone in my grade go to the other side of the playground than me and even my best friends joined in. Other days it would be stuff like nobody talking to me. Eventually I found a group of friends who were willing to ignore the rest of the grade and they really made school a much better experience for me. Before meeting my other friends I would go home crying every day. -

lauren @ nd: i would put my feet on a chair so this girl wouldn't sit next to me and our whole table would pretend there were no seats left by putting out lunch boxes on other seats so she wouldn't sit we us. now i realize that i would hate if someone did that to me but i still don't want that certain to sit with me cuz she has hurt some of my friends but is someone else asks to sit with us we say yes -

Heather@ND: I used to talk about this one girls back and called her bad names and once started a rumor about her. I still feel bad about it -

Ava @ND: I have experienced this when I was at my old school I wasn't the nicest because I was't friends with this one girl. I didn't bully her tho I just am not close with her but she said she was scared to talk to me. -

Paige ND : When I first came here in 6th grade I didn't really have any friends and no one would really talk to me. I would go home and cry because I thought there was something wrong with me. I would go on social media and see the pictures people posted of them and their friends and it really got to me. Over the summers I would get really depressed because no one every texted me and I didn't hang out with anyone -

addison @ nd : At lunch people want to sit with certin people, so if that person sits at another table people will leave my table to sit with them and not care if they left someone sitting alone. If they weren't able to sit with them the whole lunch they complain about it. -

lizzie@nda: I had a close group of friends but then someone new came in and I feel the new person bumped me out and I am not that close with the people anymore. They have group chats and snap chat groups without me so I felt excluded. The new person and I have history but I thought it was resolved but it actually isn't, so I can't really be friends with them. I have new friends but not really a group, but I'm kind of fine with it. -

chloe at ND: Nothing targeting me but I witnessed it and never did anything about it. I used to be in this group of girls who would put their lunchbox down on the table to kind of reserve a spot. Other girls would kind of push the girls who reserved their spots lunch boxes off the table. Today I try my best to not exclude anyone -

Izzy : I've been affected by female bullying. Its made me insecure and has made me act not myself. -

Jade: i have been affected by drama and rumors being spread, for instance people have said rude things to me and spread rumors about how i reacted to the mean things said. It was very hurtful and immature -

nope: I've had difficulty trying to respect the Trump supporters. -

anna @ ND: I was physically abused at my old school for being fat, so I starved myself -

Peyton@nd: is that people in my school that i thought were my friends and one of them was scared of me for no reason, so I confronted her to make sure everything was okay, but she told me she never said anything about her being scared of me so I was like if I ever make you feel scared, then tell me. So a couple days later, I removed my self from our friend group chat because the people in it were just blowing up my phone so I just left. Then as soon as I left the group chat this one girl kept on saying things about me and making me look like I was a bully and so some other girls in the group chat told me that she said that. I was very upset! -

Chelsea@nd: My personal truth is when a was mean to me because of the color of my skin. She said mean things. -

Rhea@ND : When I was in 6th grade there was a group chat with the majority of the grade... one day I was on the bus on the way to a field hockey game and I was sitting with a girl who I didn't know was in the group chat. We were goofing off and I was on her phone and she got a text notification from the group chat and I saw my name so I clicked on it. I know this isn't right of me but I scrolled and all I saw were negative things written about me, one saying that I was an annoying puppy. I told the girl I knew who told the rest of the girls, but they never apologized... they just went on like nothing happened. Sometimes I wish that one of them would apologize. -

Emma@ND : Girl to girl crime is present in our daily life. I think that even when we don't notice it, gossip happens. I admit to talk about people behind their back, and I know people do the same about me. I pledge to not gossip or say rude things behind anyones back because I have seen the effects in can have on girls. It is not needed and I hope eventually we can end gossips so that no girl gets hurt because of it. -

Olivia @ND: I was bullied in elementary school by one girl and eventually my own friend group turned against me. I had no friends for a long time and then my school merged with another school and there was a girl who became my best friend. -

Jaiden@ND: There have been girls that pick on me without realizing that they are doing it. There are things that I like that no one else does and my friends tend to think it is weird. -

Molly @ ND: I was best friends wth a girl from my old school. We did everything together. We were together 24/7. Then in the summer I came down the shore and I saw her and she wouldn't even say hi to me. In the fall she came to our school dance and said hi to my friends from nda (she doesn't go here) but not me. We have not talked since. Im not sure what really happened but one day she just turned on me and made me feel lonely. -

Kiera@ND: One time, I did a project with a friend, and she would not let me edit any of her work and continued to tell me that my work was awful and we should only use her work for the project. I told her that I wanted to use some of my work for the project and she stopped talking to me. We were really good friends until that project. I forgave her, but we haven't talked as much as we used to -

tori@nd: Once I had a girl tell lies about me to try to get me in trouble for something i didn't do . -

Kira @ ND: I did this to someone but I apologized so we're good now :) , but now someone is doing it to me. -

scarlett@nd: once i didn't hang out with someone becausei said i was busy but i just didn't want to hang out with them -

sophia @Nd: I was told very mean things by a select few people in a clique at school. The comments that they said to me were very hurtful and very disturbing. I am very scared of these people and I feel threatened. -

Grace@ND: At my old school i rode the bus with two girls in my grade and they would always ignore me when I said hi and stuff and if I asked to sit with one of them during school they'd say sure then they'd sit together anyways. -

Sarah Bowen: I have gotten into fights with friends and we have never made up. Relationships have been ruined by stupid arguments. -

hanna@nd: I was always a bystander and I remember I saw someone sitting along at lunch and I did nothing about it. I just looked over at her and she sat there everyday alone. I wanted to bad to go sit with her, but I didn't want anyone to look at me like I looked at her. I was scared that I would be judged by my friends. I walked past her once and I wanted to talk to her but all I could do was smile and keep walking. I still regret never even saying hi. I wonder what would happen if I just sat with her one day or had a conversation with her. -

Hannah@ND: People at the lunch tables will get up and move if someone they don't like sits down at their table, right in front of them. -

Shannon : I have been mean to people, but it didn't last too long, it was just me being mean, and I did end up apologizing.Except for 1 girl, I was mean to her because she bullied me for a real long time. I have also ben bullied and bullied and bullied so many times because of who I am, How I look, and it was mostly because of how I look, people don't care about what's on the inside, they think it's all about how good you look. -

Bryn @ND: In 6th grade, I was not included in many things. This made me sad, but then I found a new group of friends that are very nice. Also their was someone who I did not like because my friends did not like, so I purposely tried to exclude them. -

Meghan at ND: I do not have many problems with people. I was raised and taught that what others think of me doesn't matter and that if you react they gain power. I have a great group of friends and am thankful for them and my family everyday. -

Alison@ND: Once I was blocked online by someone because of my political opinions -

Emma @ ND: WhenI was in 4th grade my friend group decided I spent to much time with riding. They said I needed to choose between them and horseback riding. I choose riding because I felt that if they were really my friends they would have been happy for me. For the rest of elementary school I had 2 friends. Ever since I have been riding and made so many new friends at ND! -

Catherine @nd: A girl at my old school from first grade to seventh grade used to pick on me. She would tell me I was too tall or something else was wrong with me everyday. She would delete me from class group chats and spread rumors about me and I never did anything to her that I can remember. She used to make fun of me because I was "too smart." -

Isabella@ND: I honestly don't have any really long stories about being bullied. I guess sometimes I am a bystander to others being rude, which I feel really bad about, but generally its pretty chill for me. -

Corie@ND: I have been bullied in 5th by a group of girls and they gathered around me and called me a slut, bitch, and other words. -

Christine: I have been affected by people talking behind my back. The other week I told one of my best friends a secret, something I did by accident and I didn't want anyone else knowing. She went behind my back and told another girl the secret. That girl was effected by my secret, I didn't want he to know because it was personal. She texted me the next day asking me about it. It really hurt that a really good friend of mine betrayed me and I would have never known that she told another girl if that girl didn't text me. -

glen: I was in 3rd grade and a girl would kik me mean and rude things that were not needed to be said, considering the fact that I did nothing to her. If you do not have something nice to say then do not say it at all -

dani@ND: In 5th grade at my old school 2 girls were mean to me throughout the entire year. That had taught me to always be bold and to not let things effect me. Also, to choose my words carefully -

Julia: Dear Anna. Sorry for being annoying all the time. Thanks -

Emma: I have been bullied by this girl a million times and i now have a no contact contract with her but it took her to tell me to kill myself that people started to realize that there was a problem. I have these 2 friends who are being manipulated by her, she says if they are my friend she will not be there friends... i want to be there friend but I don't know how to that well.. :( -

I pledge to always be that person that someone can always come to if they need help or just a friend to sit and listen while they talk weather its a stranger that I've never met or a family member. I pledge to never tare someone down for what they've done or are going through and instead use words of encouragement to help them with their problems. I pledge to speak up when I feel or see someone is being hurt by another person and not just walk away. I pledge to make myself a better person along with others! - marquette

Kim: I pledge to leave a glitter trail of kindess wherever I go - Middletown

camille: I pledge to always stand up in any situation I feel is wrong. To never let anyone treat me or my friends poorly. To disallow people to impact others negatively. - westlake

Camille: I'm sorry I wasn't always there for you. Not just while we were together, but behind your back. I witnessed all of those people talking about you, and I just recently stopped allowing it. I should have realized the truth much sooner. - Liz

camille: I did not always stick up for you. Sometimes, I'd even join in while they were talking about you. Now, that is one of my biggest regrets. I have changed so much. I became a person who stands up to all forms of bullying. Looking back at the weeks I spent allowing people to talk about you negatively is so shameful for me. -

Erin: In 9th grade, I called someone a slut on social media. She had previously been a good friend to me. I still think about it weekly. -

Sophie: I was jealous of her body and her hair and her face and everything. I was struggling with eating disorders, and she represented everything I so desperatly wanted. She was in my class and for some reason, everyone hated her. I contributed to that, and I'm sorry. I'm sorry I've made her school days miserable. I'm sure I made her feel insecure and ugly. After highschool, I moved out of town to study in Argentina. I never heard of her again, but I would like her to know that I'm sorry. - Rose

Taylor: I kindly pledge to not bully AT ALL. Bullies bully because they are hurt, too. I have been hurt at some points, but did I bully? NO. I have despised bullying so much, I always tell on people who are bullying someone else even if it's just a little problem. Example:Someone on purpose at school, on computer saying to someone else, "Your breath reeks! Take a mint, Halitosis." Bullying is just wrong. Bullying can lead to victims committing suicide if the problem's gone too far. I would NEVER bully in my entire life. And I kindly pledge that. :) - IN

Taylor: I'm sorry for having me and my friend run away when you get near. I did it because I was worried you'd steal my friend. But I realized that I can have more than 1 BFF and made friends with you. P.S you're cute. :) - Rebecka

Taylor: Though I have never been bullied, I know that I will, someday. And I don't mean for just one day, I mean EVERY day. To those who are reading this, LISTEN TO ME. If you are bullied by someone, don't NOT tell on them. You need to do it otherwise that just makes the situation WORSE. I always tell on people who are mean to me or others. You do it too. -

Brittney Lindstrom: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. I pledge to be self-aware, non-judgmental, and kind to other girls and women. I pledge to help raise awareness! - Carpentersville

Brittney Lindstrom: I was bullied throughout grammar school and high school. I experienced everything from being pushed, shoved, slapped and punched to buying a pair of gym shoes and being accused and harassed for "copying" another person. The problem is real. The problem is far too real. The lack of awareness is causing bullying to be more frequent. I am a victim. I am a survivor. Some don't survive. RAISE AWARENESS! -

Kaitlyn: I've grown up as an Army brat, meaning that I've moved around a lot. It's not easy to be the new kid in school, but I got used to sitting alone and not having any friends. In a way I was okay with it. What made things worse though, when two trials started to whisper and talk about me behind my back. I became very self insecure, I stopped eating, I stopped caring about everything and about myself. I've tried to kill myself, thankfully my friends stopped me. I know what it's like, but to anyone who is going through a hard time, I want you to know that it gets better. There is light in the darkness, and someone does love you. I love you. -

*present self*: I KINDLY pledge to never hurt someone. to always be KIND to people, even if i don't like them. I promise that i will always try to help not hurt. - Indianapolis, IN

*present self*: I have been bullied before, and even though i haven't bullied anyone, I made someone feel bad. I can't live that down. I have been bullied so much that I tried to kill myself. I didn't. I don't remember why i stopped, i guess common sense smacked me in the face. I hope this campaign helps so many people. I hope it gives that person who almost pushed me to kill myself gets some common sense. Thank you for reading my truth... -

present self: Dear, self I'm sorry for letting them get to you. For letting there hurtful words and actions cause you to do something you didn't want to do. I'm sorry i tried to kill almost died at 10 years old. I'm glad you didn't. I'm still bullied right today. I remember trying to die just last year. I'm only 11. I'm glad your still alive. You can fight through the pain. I'm sorry... - younger/older self

unknown: I will not say names but she was not very nice to me and sometimes I was not really nice to her.We would always run the one hundred mile club together , but one day I told her I would not run with her but was going to play soccer with some of my other friends. She got really mad at me and said she would tell the teacher on me if I did not run with her. So I ran with her for awhile but the I was tired with it and said I was going to play with someone else and she called me a lot of mean names but to this day her and I are not so mad at each other. -

Cherry: I move around a lot and have trouble finding friends. I'm not very out-going and I wish people would have been a little more kind to me. I was called names, made fun of, and bossed around. Sometimes I still feel different and lonely. Being the new kid is hard. I have flash-backs of those unkind memories. -

shelbie: When I was in first grade, my "friends" started being very mean to me. They would always say hurtful things to me and leave me out. These thing happened daily. The summer that I was going into fourth grade, I was told that I will be moving. After hearing this news, my sister was heart broken, but for me, I was looking at it as a great chance to make new friends. On my first day at the new ( and much bigger ) school, I remember walking into the huge classroom and being so scared. That day, at recess, a girl came up to me and asked if I wanted to play with her.I was so happy! Since then, I have met my best friends! -

Paige blakeslee: I have been called stupid and dumb for dressing up for 80's day, and when i dressed up for a presentation because I dressed up as a nerd. they said that I was exposing what was on the inside, and I said that's great because you are, too. When I got to the bus stop this morning, a girl who i thought was my friend, said,"Why do you dress up for 80's day? It's stupid and dumb." it made me hurt to hear that. please remember this story and others when you are about to talk.

Yzabella: I have been excluded from friends and groups many, many times starting since I was 3 and up to today it happens from now and then. I do not get why I am always the one to be left out of a group but I guess ti does. Today I have been included in games and other activities. -

Unknown: I have had a friend since the 1st grade, and we are 6th graders now. In 4th grade, this new girl came. MY friend met her, and we all became friends, and now they leave me out all of the time and I never feel included, and it's like we aren't even friends anymore. It hurts, it really does. -

Mac: In first grade I was bullied by a girl. She said if I go play with somebody else she will go tell the teacher. She also sat by me so nobody could sit by me. One time I got an award for student of the month, and with it it came with a mini candy bar. The girl that was bullying me stole the candy out of my cubbie. The teachers asked if she took it she said she didn't take it. They asked again she still said no. So the Principle got involved. He asked the girl if she took it. She still said no. Then he asked one more time. She finally confessed, that she took it. There is my story now what is yours. -

Annonomous: Well, there was this one girl in third grade who claimed that we were "best friends". For a while we WERE good friends, but then she just started being really mean to me! I still don't really know why, all I know is that she bullied me everyday and she told me that I was an idiot for wanting to be friends with other people! Anyways, after 5th grade, she moved, and I was really happy. Now I feel guilty feeling that way. I came home everyday crying for something she did or said. She would glare at me or tell me to stop being an idiot. I wish that she would come back so that I could make things right with her! -

xaviery : all i can say is i feel like im all alone and everybody hates me and treaten me like a maiden.i guess they are trying to don"t look at myself and i think everybody wants to let me down -

Tracy Ford: My daughter, when we moved to a new city and a new high school, came home in tears almost every day because all the girls told her she was fat and ugly and wore the wrong clothes (evidently most of them were willowy thin and shopped at Abercrombie and Fitch). It was only in the second year that she found a small group of friends. -

Lily Maroney: I pledge to always stay positive no matter what comes my way - Baltimore

Lily: I got bullied and made fun of a lot because of my appearance. I remember hating my facial appearance. Since then I've learned not to. I've learned so much since then. Don't pay attention to whar they say it's stupid and irrelevant. You are beautiful as you are and if some people just can't see it then that's just too bad for them. ?? -

Mélanie Murcie : My name's Mélanie, I've 19 years old, and I'm french. I already apologize for my low level in english... But I'll try to tell my story. I was very popular in my first year in High School. I was always with a group of ten girls. I considered these girls like my best friends. But one day, I learned that one of these girls had make love with the boy that I loved... The day of my birthday, in my house. (YES!) All of these girls knew that I loved this guy. No one told me something about. And after my birthday party, she make couple with him, during three months. No one said me something about it. And when I discovered it (we always dicover the truth), I was really devasted by a such treason. So I stopped hanging out with them. After what, they started to bullied me. I was alone in the class, and in the internship, what has made them laugh. They insulted me on Twitter and Facebook... They told me to never come back in school. When I passed close to them, they laughed and made fun of me... They criticized my homework in class, they were spreading rumors about me... So, I changed school, but I'm fell in dépression, I've taken a lot of weight, I've lost my entire self-confident and I developped some phobias... School phobia, phobia to kill myself (yes... it's weird, but it's very handicapping in life because I suffer of anxiety attack each time that I'm close to a window, on a bridge, when I drive my car... And every time I can potentially hurt me...) These girls have literally destroy me, they have did all they could to make me feel alone, worthless, stupid, and terribly insignificant. Even today, I wish they pay for what they did... I keep so much hate against them... I know, I should I have to forgive ... but I can not yet. Now it's been two years already, but I remain very affected by what happened ... I try to rebuild myself and don't give up, it's hard.

And I just want to said to them THANK YOU SO MUCH to defend a such cause.In the darkest moments, Lauren have been my only source of hope, and now she's my biggest source of inspiration. Thank you to be who you are, and thank you to make the world a better place. ,Thanks you. -

Brooke: When I was in elementary school, I was constantly being picked on by a few girls because I was developing faster than the rest of girls in the class. They would snap my bra straps and they would follow me into the bathroom, try and peer at me over the stall, wait for me to open my pad and then tease me about having my period. They would also go back into the classroom and tell others about it. I remember it to this day and it's been almost 30 years. -

Jodie Morman: I have been very lucky in my life to not have experienced this type of girl on girl crime, but I want to make sure my daughter has a great experience through her young life. She is an easygoing, fun loving child that had a situation a few months back with another girl calling her names including "fat" which made her feel horrible and brought her to tears. I addressed the mother and the situation was rectified, but I don't want to have future altercations. -

Antje Harder-Kasten: Hey, I´m a 29 years old young woman from Germany and I want to apology for a thing, that probably many would consider as not really severe, but I carry it around with me for several years now. I have been affected by bullying in my teenage-years as well and I have made the promise to myself that I will never be like any one of that boys and girls who made me down. When I went to school I took part in a student exchange to Sweden. In the group of Germans from my school there was also a girl called Anna. She was kind of the typical outsider, not really goodlooking, no stylish clothes and was in fact quite naive. It was easy to play tricks on her or tease her with humour she did not understand. I always had been kind to her and tried to show some interest in her but the one day during the student exchange we went skiing in Sweden. She had never done this before and was very awkward. For a moment I cought myself with the thought how funny it would be to tell her just to go and look what would happen. I was almost sure that she would fall down because she had no practice. And so I told her she should go and try her fortune. And Anna did so... I saw her start and go down the hill. She became faster and faster and did not know how to brake and finally fell. She fell on her face and when she came back I saw that she had a bleeding bruise over her lip and the forehead. The others laughed at her when they saw her. In that moment I felt so bad. This experience is 13 years ago and I still cannot forget it. And I did not say sorry to Anna until now. Why - I don´t know for sure but I think that sometimes not saying sorry bewares you from really realizing that you have done something wrong. Now I have the courage to say sorry as I do not want to behave as it was not me who brought her in that damn situation. Anna - I´m so sorry! - Anna K.

Olivia: I pledge to have grace towards people who have hurt me. I forgive them and will continue to forgive them and show them kindness. - Parker

Katherine Bolt: I'm sorry that I kissed the boy you liked freshman. He told me he didn't know you and I tried to justify it by convincing myself that it was okay since I had known him for a longer period of time. It wasn't okay and I wish I could take it back. I know this may be small to you now but I never apologized for it and I'd really like to. You're my sister & I betrayed you. It was stupid and immature and I am so so sorry if that is what affected our relationship because my relationship with you and the rest of our sisters is the most important thing to me. I love you. - Bianca

Katherine Bolt: When I was in high school, my best friend slept with my then boyfriend. We broke up and I stopped talking to her. After that her and the dance team we were both on decided to make it their personal goal to make my life awful. I was constantly bullied, called names, threatened, and was even pushed down the stairs. I ended up having to switch schools and haven't been able to trust girls in the same way since then. That was four years ago. -

Amaya Stowers: I am sorry to everyone I have ever wronged. I am sorry for not being me, for letting peer pressure get the best of me. But most of all I am sorry Maddie, I put my relationship with him over our relationship and for that I am forever sorry to you. I am sorry I said all of those hurtful things and did everything that I did. - Madison Powell

Amaya Stowers: As a female we all fall into the trap of girl drama. Sometimes as we seldom realize that even though you may think you are the victim but in my 13 years of being a girl I have realized what comes around goes around. If someone's mean to you it's probably because you were mean to them. Which is why I have devoted my Eighth Grade year to making a change, I want to become the nicest person can be. -

Anna: Chloe, from the beginning we've never gotten along. We're nice to each other as people, but not as friends. I'd overreact when you'd say something by mistake. Then I'd talk out loud your face about why I was angry. I'm very sorry. I'm sorry that I make things worse when I try to help. I'm sorry for being selfish and always talking about what I want to talk about. I'm sorry for everything. I hope you can forgive me for my mistakes. - Chloe

Elizabeth Mottola: I have been teased, cheated, and manipulated my entire life. My old friend Annie used to always steal my stuff, INCLUDING my boyfriend. She was so rude to me all the time, and treated me terribly. Another girl Mikayla bullied me in middle school and was determined to make my life a living hell. All around me people are rude to me. Instead of being a jerk back, I now kill them with kindness. -

Ashley Jackson: I work for a residential treatment program in Allegan County, Michigan. Over the years it has become so obvious that these teenage girls' experience with other female peers and adults has been painful. In turn, this is how they treat others. I would love to be able to incorporate some material from this campaign! -

Renee Boesch: When my twin sister and I were in Jr. High (the worst of all ages), we were tormented by the popular girls. Phone calls by boys pretending to like us only to drive by our house shouting obscenities hours later and calling us ugly, dates to the 8th grade dance, only to show up all dressed up with no one there but a group of girls pointing and laughing. Invites to their houses only to be shoved and ridiculed. We didn't have their cool blonde hairstyles or their Guess Jeans (yes, that mattered in 1989!) because my family survived on a Policeman's shoe string salary. They also loved to torment us for being 'freaks' based only on the fact that we were twins. We'd go home everyday to the bedroom we shared and sit underneath our white desk and cry. We told no one. We just pushed through together somehow. I truly don't know what we would have done had Social Media existed during my school years. Many years later, we blossomed in high school and would become leads of the Drama Dept. (starring in every play or musical), Captains of the elite dance squad, and Honor Students. I even had a handsome and kind first boyfriend. Suddenly some of those mean girls were apologizing and we were becoming friends. Some remained mean, but set their sights on each other instead of us. I'm proud to say that my sister and I are now 40 year old professional women and performers with great friends, family and happiness surrounding us. One of those mean girls is even still a very dear friend who has taught her beautiful daughter exactly how NOT to do this to someone else. The others? Who knows....but my hope is that their children never have to face what we did. My heart goes out to anyone who has suffered, is suffering or will suffer...but I encourage you to stay strong and remember that someday, you WILL prevail. -

Lela Stankovic: Hi, dear Lauren and Molly, (PLEASE READ THIS) I´m pretty sure I had lost all of my words as soon as I watched just one of your videos because they are full off truth, real pain, real issue, posssible love, possible solution. My name is Lela Stankovic. In 5 months I´ll be 17 and I am from MONTENEGRO. I go to gymnasium and I am a good student willing to become educated professional. My whole primary school was really hard to go to because there was that constant hatred that was surrounding me. I was teased especially because as younger I used to be skew-eyed. I was bullied verbally constantly and once physically. It didn´t really stopped but I really changed in the ninth grade. Brutal, cruel jokes as well teasing and gums, cream in my hair, chalk on my chair hadn´t ever stopped but I was stronger than ever. Luckily, I have two amazing parents who got through everything with me and basically saved me from possible self-destruction. They taught me to believe in good, even though that sometimes can be really hard, and to be myself every day no matter what. I realized that being different is not weird and wrong, it´s a gift. When I went to high school, children are more aware of themselves, more friendly, more respectful. I was amazed how they were nice and lovely and how they even always say ?Hi?, because that wasn´t the case before. Also, they really respect me and show me some kind of admiring which was a nice change. I realized and I made my peace with a fact that there will always be people who will try to drag someone down and who will do anything to get someone so low so they could picture themselves on a fake high throne. That will be their problem if they can´t understand what the real problem is. People lie because they hope time will turn everything into truth, people don´t care because they are too busy putting their heads under the ground like that has any sense at all. My pain, my thoughts I turned into something I truly love:writing my own songs in English (because English is the most beautiful language in my view),writing critical, ironic, sarcastic comments based on everyday life (want to become understood writer), learning how to play guitar myself. Passion is really hard to find especially when you are in such an environment that is trying to suffocate you. I know many kids that were genuinely good and they masked themselves to become one of the ?cool kids? and they are going nowhere now. I have to be honest, I saw this maybe 5 days ago on Emmys 2014 when Aaron Paul (a brilliant, amazing passionate actor I have to say by the way and I am a huge fan of BREAKING BAD) said something about this. I immediately had to check this out. Also, I realized through many TV shows, teenage movies that bullying is more common in high schools in USA, Great Britain and other countries. It is really clever, bold and inspiring what you both started and many girls out there probably see you as their heroes. Great job and just continue. World becomes a better place as every KIND, self-aware, grateful and good person speaks out. I know it´s a long story to read (sorry about that) and thank you for your possible patience and understanding. Sorry for possible grammatical errors too. Lots of love, LELA -

megan: my personal experience is that throughout the whole of primary and now in secondary school I was bullied by a lot of girls I was called fat and ugly and that I wasn't meant to be here and it hurt and in the end I told someone but now not only is it me who's being bullied my best friend is as well and we have stuck by each others side but my friend (who's name I can't mention) has self-harmed because her bullying has become worse. so yea that's my story but there is definitely a light at the end and I learnt that from lauren and molly they are my INSPIRATION !!! -

Lauren: I KINDly pledge that i will promote Kind Campaign to all over my school and country. I will help stop girl on girl crime all around the world! - England

Lauren: To younger self, I am sorry i let you suffer. I wish i could go back and change that. I would keep fighting off the nad and have done something sooner. If you had known you would grow up to be the sporty GB ice hockey player you are know you would have not let anything get you down. i wish i hadnt of given up on you and kept fighting and not let the scars fill over my body. Please forgive me younger self - younger self

Lauren: I have been bullied through pretty much my whole school time. It started in primary still continuing into secondary. I wish i could have changed my past, it still haunts me today. There was one girl in my primary, lets call her A. She liked a guy and i was very close to him as a friend. ive never liked him and never will. She always used to pester me about how i was fat and how id never go out with him. i never wanted to. all i wanted was a friend. there was the constant name calling in the group of "friends" and the "oh you cant play with us" stuff. i got used to it, and when it happens to me its at the point i dont care anymore. it carried on all the way until i joined my current secondary school. before i joined my current school i had settled in with new friends and everything was happy, but i had the chance to move to the school that i wanted to and i did. my first day was pretty okay until i got home. i checked my phone and there was a whatsapp messaged. Girl A. (she went to my current school she has left now). calling me a hippo and a disgrace, saying i shoulf die ect all the usual bitchiness. i held it in, but i told one of my friends. i asked her to keep it secret but she told her mum. who told my mum. who told my school. and by lunch the next day it was sorted. she never spoke to me again. apart from the glares she gave me inbetween classes. but she wasnt the only person. ive always had more boy friends than girl friends. i find them so much easier to hang with and talk to. they appreciate me for who i am unlike 98% of girls in my year. every day i have to fight my mind to work out who to hang around with. i currently hang with year 11s, but they are leaving in 3 weeks and i dont know what ill do then. theres so many different "squads" in my year and i dont fit into any of them. yeah i have a boyfriend okay and all that gets said is oh you can do better than him or oh you do naughty things you little slut. Well guess what. im sick and done with everyones tiny opinions. come and say it to my face now i hate all the rumors and the lies. try asking me before believeing and spreading. i finally after 2 years have told someone all my issues, and things are starting to get better. slpwly but surely. if i could say anything to any of you young beatuiful girls is that you need to believe in yourself. your beautiful in different ways. just because you dont wear makeup or wear the right clothes.doesnt mean you are not beautiful. and i urge anyone who is currently being bullied to tell someone you trust. because if you hold it in it will only get worse. do not hide what you are going through. take pride in everything you do and dont let anyone put you down. you are all lovely talented women and deserve all the best in life x -

?????: I'm sorry that I wasted so many tears and depressing thoughts on you. I'm sorry that I thought that we would be best friends forever. I'm sorry that I believed you when you said "I'd stand up for you no matter what". I'm sorry for whatever I could have done to you for you to make me feel this way. I'm sorry I still believe those things you said now. I'm sorry your not the person I thought you were. - ?????

L.M. : I was bullied all throughout seventh grade by a girl named Samantha Turner. We were in a group of about 7 girls. None of them stood up for me. I felt trapped, I wanted to leave the group, but I felt like leaving was running and I didn't want to give Sam the satisfaction. So I stayed. Sam broke my heart every day. I cried until the veins in my face burst. I started failing classes. I hated myself for being weak. I hated her for being a monster. It went on for a year, until one day I finally broke down outside my English class. We were drawn into the front office and I shared my story. Sam was essentially kicked out of our group. My pain was supposed to be over, but it was just starting. I went into a deep depression and had to go through two years of therapy. Even now I carry the emotional scars. I can't help but look at my friends sometimes and wonder if they really are my friends, if they would defend me. My sophomore year I had been at a new school about 3 weeks when someone told me someone had posted a picture on Instagram calling me names. I went into a panic and started to cry and all I could think was, "I can't do this again. I can't." Later I found out he was lying, but that panic showed me how I'm still not over everything. One thing I can say is, I have healed. I laugh again, I smile, I stopped therapy, my grades are great, I am happy. Even now I wish I could ask Sam why, I wish I could look her in the eyes and tell her just how much she hurt me, but that isn't going to happen. I won't get an apology or an explanation, but I've learned to accept it. The emotional scars are still there, they haunt me, sometimes I stay up thinking about it. My heart breaks when I read my journals from middle school... What happened wasn't right and it will never be acceptable. Girls need to build each-other up not tear each-other down. Next year I will graduate high school and I will go on to live a beautiful and happy life. Sam, wherever you are in this big world... I don't like you, but I wish you well. I wish you the happiness you denied me and one day I hope you look back on what you did to me and feel guilt and realize what you did was wrong. I won't and I don't allow what you did to rule my life, because you don't deserve to be part of my life. You don't deserve to be in my thoughts. I am free of you and I am happy and alive. I am strong. To all the girls and women in the world who struggle with the pain of bullying, I understand. I want you to remember that you are all beautiful and strong. You can pull through this. I know you can. I believe in you. With much love - L -

Lily : I am 13. I have dealt with verbal abuse from my father, he is an alcoholic. I haven't lived with him since I was ten and I no longer see him. I haven't been bullied much but I kind of bully myself. I have dealt with self harm and I have been kind of suicidal since I was ten. I keep everything locked up inside because no would care enough to listen. Recently my best friend started ignoring me and telling me that people told her I was talking trash about her even though I truly wasn't. She now gossips about me to two of her friends who I thought were my friends too but I guess not. I really love her and I feel like after everything she has done I would still forgive her if she asked but she won't. I really wish she loved me and trusted me. Sometimes I think that our friendship was never real like she never really trusted me. One day we told each other everything and had sleepovers the next she acts like she doesn't even know me. It sucks because betrayal never comes from your enemies. -

Lily J.: She was really smart she just had a broken heart She got bullied at school it was quite cruel She said she was just sad But no one knew about the scars she had The voices in her head told her to stop trying Inside she was dying Someone told her the world’s not for everybody The next day they found her dead body She held back tears and faked a smile Step in her shoes you wouldn't make it a mile She gave up because the battle wasn't worth fighting I guess our world isn’t very inviting So be careful with what you do In the end it just hurts you -

Uliana: I am 30 now but I still remember that one time when my friend and I called a girl in our class fat. I don't even remember why (not that there can be a good reason for doing this) but we insisted on it, repeated a few times and made her cry.. I never apologized for this. I regretted it ever since though.. Tanya, I'm so sorry! - Tanya

Melody: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying! I am making a commitment to be truthful and to respect women both young and old and empower them! - Simi Valley

Jill: My 2 best friends in grade 7 and 8 turned on me as soon as we started highschool, they stopped speaking to me one day and spread lies about me to all the other girls. I am currently 19 in my second year of college and I am still unaware of what I did to deserve such cruelty. Thankfully I only had to deal with having no friends for grade 9, because I met amazing friends that I still have to this day the following year, but that still does not make up for the fact that I spent all of grade 9 alone. I did not want to go to school, I cried every night and I honestly thought it would never get better. It still hurts me to think about it, and it saddens me that they never gave me an apology, but thankfully I stayed strong throughout it all and it helped me to become the person that I am today. Bullying is not a joke, and seeing your campaign and all that you do makes me so happy. Thank you for all you do!!! -

Bailey Helms: When I was in fifth grade I was bullied. I was called freckle juice and many other terrible names. I had also spread a rumor about this girl named, Jordan Hopkins. I'm not really even sure why. I think I just wanted the negative attention on someone else instead of me. I am sorry for what I did and I pledge to never let anyone pass me by without smiling and telling them,"Hi". Today in the halls I saw a girl named Leah that I haven't talked to since sixth grade. She was struggling to carry her books so I helped her carry them to her next class and talked with her along the way. It made me feel really good after and that's how I wanna feel for the rest of my life. I pledge to always be kind and never let anyone else go through what I did. -

Dasia: Who is your best friend? -

Colleen: Last year I was in the eigth grade. At lunch, people I had thought were my friends began lashing out on me. I had no idea what I had done. And honestly? I still don't. They called me a b*tch, a whore, they said I couldn't keep my legs closed and that was why the boy I had been with for so long had left. I ran out of the cafeteria in tears. I texted my mothet over and over begging her to come pick me up, I didn't want to be there anymore. This wasn't the first incident where I had been called multiple names and been made fun of. I wanted to die. Things have gotten better, but every now and then I'm still made fun of. Kill them with kindness. It works. I promise. -

I'm sorry I didn't trust you or Rosie enough and made a mistake that cost us our friendship. I'm sorry I let my jealousy get in the way of our friendship. I miss being your friend, and I miss everything we did together. I miss the plans we made. - Kassidee Pollis

Victoria Anne Kitsos: Hi my name is Victoria Anne Kitsos i'm 13 and I am from Summerdale School in Alabama you went there on 3/9/16. I'm going to tell you my story…..When i was 5 or 6 years old is when sexual abuse started and it didn't end until I was 11 the person that abused me was my brother who is 6 years older than me. When i was about 6 or 7 physical abuse started and still happens sometimes the person that abused me was my other brother who is 3 years older than me. I don't live with the brother who sexually abused me,but I do live with the brother who physically abused me. I do self harm sometimes when i'm sad or mad at myself and I have tried/thought of over dosing on pills. I have been bullied ever since the 3rd or 4th grade and sometimes it still happens. I have also been verbally abused by people at school (boys and girls). I do have a few friends like maybe 2 or 3 (girls). I do have a boyfriend and we have been dating for 2 1/2 months. I have good grades and always have (A/B). When I was getting bullied by girls I remember one time i was in the hallway in 6th grade and this girl was screaming at me calling me slut,hoe,whore,bitch,ugly,stupid,stripper,etc. and the reason she did this is because my boyfriend just broke up with me for no reason and I guess this girl thought i broke up with him or she just doesn't like me or something. Now you know i've been molested,abused,and bullied yes, I know i'm broken and i have depression ,but I believe that the people that matter love me for me and I want you to share my story the way I wrote it with all the schools you go to or some at least!!!!!! To let girls know that whatever they are going threw it's ok because the only people that matter love you and those girls that were mean to you that you will probably never see them again after high school and you'll have a beautiful and amazing life ahead you as long as you stay in this world and try your best to let it roll off your back and ignore them!!! SO AGAIN PLEASE SHARE MY STORY WITH THE GIRLS AT SCHOOL TO LET THEM KNOW EVEN THOUGH LIFE IS CRAPPY RIGHT NOW IT WILL BE ALRIGHT AND TO STAY BECAUSE YOUR BESTFRIEND YOU HAVENT EVEN MET YET IS WAITING FOR YOU AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY SOON!!!! -

alice: i apologise for making your friends turn away from you. i apologise to my own friends for not sharing your enthusiasm and not letting you in. i apologise for not telling you what was going on. i apologise for not asking for your help, or trusting you with my problems. i'm sorry I didn't say this sooner - my past friends

Stephanie: A friend suddenly took it on me when I was 11. She began criticising me for the things I said, the way I look; she broke my things, pushed me against the wall to provoke a fight… I ended up hiding in the bathrooms during the breaks (why do we always try to hide in the bathrooms anyway?) I was very lucky because it did not last long. My friends alerted the school director; it was just one girl, they made sure we wouldn’t see much of each other again. But I did not talk about it, about how I felt… I felt ashamed, I sorta thought it was my fault... My parents seem to have failed understanding what I was going through, and I wanted to be or to look strong, so I sucked it up. I never talked, to anyone. 25 years later, I am only starting recovering from that episode… I can see now how all this influenced me, all of me, from the way I walk in the street to some of my biggest decisions. I let this experience define who I am. And this is wrong. I spent 25 years trying to be invisible. I shy from everyone, especially the one I love the most, or admire, because I’m too afraid they might end up discovering how silly, stupid and ugly I am. But am I, really?? The lasting consequences of bullying can be crazy. Girls!! There’s NO reason. NO explanations. You’re not to blame. You’re not silly. You’re not ugly. Don’t make the same mistake that I did. TALK about how you feel!! Face your fears! Don’t be afraid of being who you are, because ultimately, you’re the strong ones!! Be kind to others, but start being kind to yourself. Don’t waste your time. Love loads xo -

Kim: Kelly, I am sorry for what I did in high school. I promise that it has haunted me well into adulthood, and still does to this day. I often think about what caused me to do that, and as I reflect, I realize it was my own selfishness and insecurities. I am truly sorry. Karma is real, and in my 20's, I experienced something that absolutely shattered the foundation of my life - my family. It reminded me that no one is perfect, and there is beauty in forgiveness. I try to forgive myself, my father, and others on a daily basis. I hope you have found happiness. - Kelly

Lexis : My life hasn't been the easiest. But it's not the worst. That's the only thing that gets me through the day.. by knowing that people have it worse than I do. Everyone at my school hates me.. I don't know know what I did. I'm only 13, I couldn't have done much. Every day that I go to school, I'm tormented. I get called names. But no one understands. I've tried to commit suicide a few weeks ago. My mom found me and took me to the hospital. Now I'm in 3 therapy sessions a week. Things go on at home that I can't even explain. The girls at school don't know me well enough to call me the names that they do. But, I know people out there have it worse than I do. -

Amy: In junior high, some girls were really mean to me and just said nasty things. I took it all very personally and I felt like there was something really wrong with me. I'm in my 30's now and never fully recovered from these early incidents. -

Serenity: I apologys for calling you names - Mrayea

serenity: that I will not get in fights - texas

Serenity: I have started mess and ended mess -

Grace Guerrero: Yesterday I stood up and told the class that "I identify as a turtle." There was immediate backlash. Girls called me things like slow, green, lizard skin, and one girl even said that I could breath underwater. I'm not any of these things. I am a TURTLE, I am sick of this bigotry toward turtle kind. I'm going to swim off into the ocean, never to return. Goodbye civilization. -

Lily Anderson: I saw a table at lunch that I wanted to sit at. There were some girls there with some really cute tops and some absolutely adorbs shoes. I just wanted to sip my superfood smoothie with them! They were really mean and took away the chair when I tried to sit down. I fell down and they all apologized super fakey. It was really mean and I went in the bathroom and my makeup was smearing everywhere. I just wish they were nicer to me :( -

Damari : All bullying is unacceptable and unnecessary...Narcissistic bullies...Work place bullying, what will he do about it? All bullying needs to stop. What will they do about work place bullies and bullying? I was also the only one he treated like this..All he needed to do was be kind, show kindness. I want to bring more awareness to work place bullying in 2016 to help others not have to deal with bullies for bosses. The laws need to change!!! What will they do about work place bullies and bullying, it needs to stop...I was fired 12 days before Christmas... I use to like people but a bully shot me down! Bosses should lead employees not Bully...Yes not from bullies! What about work place bullies?! Remember bullies come in all shapes and sizes....I was bullied by an adult named Jeff Ursino , my manager at Citibank in Carmel, Ca...after he successfully made me sick with nerves and caused my blood pressure to go up he fired me via UPS 12 days before Christmas while I was out on a workers comp pending family will never forget the pain he caused us....and I haven't worked since due to all of this. Jeff Ursino once told me that I couldn't wear the hats I'd been wearing to work for almost four years with no problem. He said it was company policy yet there was nothing in writing. I called HR and they said there was nothing in the codes about hats. About six weeks later Jeff Ursino decided to tell me that I could wear hats again but only a couple days a week. I asked him what about the policy and he replied " I'm in control" , it was his way of throwing his weight around, what a bully! He also threatened to fire me for job abandonment if I didn't show up to work on a day I couldn't work, my daughter was ill and he was already fully staffed. He put me on the schedule at the last minute to pressure me into working...a Bully at his finest. He also stated that I hadn't worked on days that I had and I still have a copy of the schedules. Bullying needs to end and companies need to properly train manages to be leaders not bullies! What will politicians do about it? Nothing! We need to unite and do something about adult bullying and in the work place! I have two boxes of proof and I did document everything. When I realized that there is actually an Awareness month for anti bullying I decided to tell my story again in hopes of finding an organization that I can help bring light to this also very ugly issue! What I have mentioned is just a bit of all he did. No one cared or did anything about it. I wrote my leaders, congressmen , senators , mayors, city leaders, the president , attorney general, etc...everyone past the buck. Since then, bullying has come to the forefront and I want to tell my story. He is a father of 3 sons, still a " manager" , on the board of trustees for a school district and I can't help but wonder who he is bullying now. He had choices and he chose to be unkind, uncaring, not understanding, treated me like crap, ignored what others where doing, focused on me until he ruined me! ALL BULLIES NEED TO BE STOPPED!!!!! All companies need Bullying training and the manager isn't always right! Only cowards bully other people! He didn't care what I was wearing he simply wanted to show who was in control and bully me. The hats didn't prevent me from doing my job nor did anyone ever complain about them, in fact I got lots of compliments from customers and a couple of his bosses and someone from HR, it's was great until he showed up as a temporary manager. He just wanted me gone and set out to wrongfully terminate me. He couldn't even write me up correctly and I have the proof. He couldn't even fire me correctly as he broke California Labor codes in the process of firing me. He was simply unkind and heartless to me. Please grow up to be a kind, caring person. Never purposely make someone fear their going to loose their job for putting their daughter first, that's what he did to me...and yet he is a father. Time to open their eyes and our leaders and change the laws. Speak the truth state the facts and have your evidence ready! One of the reasons I am doing this is because I have proof, my journal, the forms he used to write me up incorrectly. He was in such a hurry to write me up that the first time he wrote me up he used the wrong form, he used the second warning form. He threatened me with job abandonment yet didn't know how that law worked. For some reason the universe, my God or what ever you want to believe, had me keep all the evidence. In my journal I wrote daily of what occurred at work, he singled me out. In four and a half years I loved my job 98 percent of the days then he came and ruined not only me but the spirit of that bank branch. He took away causal Friday and tried to take away cookies on Fridays for our customers. He said we all had to only eat in the break room but yet would eat at his desk and not say anything to the pretty blonde when she ate at her station. He took all my family photos down and claimed it was best for my family but allowed others to have their family photos out! A BULLY!!!!please share my story to bring awareness to work place bullying. The more I read the more I realize he was threatened by me. My reviews didn't justify what he did. Several times I was asked if I was the manager as he stood next to me. The hat issue was just him being a bully, he ignored what others did and wouldn't give me credit when it was due to me, he played it down. He snapped his fingers twice, said my name , pointed to the back room and said Damari in the back the very first time he ever addressed me. In the back room he said my reputation precedes me, that upper management had nothing but glowing reports about me. He asked why I thought I do so well and I told him because I love my job. He was a temporary manager, the branch was looking for a full time manager. Jeff Ursino was managing two branches during this process, I was trying to hang in there until we got a new one but he couldn't wait to fire me. I'm understanding more about bullies these days, it doesn't make it right but we need to pray for the bully. That's was awesome, thank you for caring and reposting. I use his name and the bank and location to keep it real and honest. I have nothing to hide. I use to tell my kids' if you don't want grammy to know what you did then don't do anything you'd be a shamed of because I will tell grammy the truth' it really helped with their behavior. I once wrote him and asked why he did what he did and I also told him that I hope no one ever treated his family as he had treated mine, but I got no response to my email from him. It's all true so it's not slander. Have an awesome day, thank you very much. So sorry about what you went through, hopefully we can get others to come forth and share their stories. I honestly feel that the bully should be called out, if he/she was so proud of their actions then don't get upset when we share what you've done. Please feel free to share my story to bring awareness to work place bullies and bullying, it needs to stop, the laws need to protect the employees and victims not the bully. Share my story please. Kindness is free, spread it! Bullying cost lives and jobs, stop it! ~Damari Stratford ~ -

Lexi Jorgenson: I pledge to be kind. I pledge to stay in the kind club at my school. I pledge to spread kindness everywhere I go. I pledge to be true and thoughtful in all my actions. - Pocatello

Lexi Jorgenson: My good friends mom died and I wasn't there to support her I was actually really rude. Really rude. And she was mean to, like excluding me from everything.? -

Denea Golden: I was bullied throughout middle and high school for multiple reasons. One, I was tall and lanky. Two, I was taught to annunciate my words and due to moving around a lot I didn't have a typical southern accent and according to others I didn't sound how I was supposed to. Third, I was taught to walk with my head held high and for some reason that translated into me being stuck up. I was the new girl who acted "differently" and because of it I received a lot of hate notes in my locker, on social media and can remember plenty of mean words that were spoken to me. There were plenty of days I ate lunch alone in the bathroom. I think one of issues with bullying, is the fact that people don't realize there are different forms of bullying. The more we educate others and talk about our stories, the better. I love this campaign because it brings awareness to this subject. We all have the power to spread kindness. -

S.Whitt: Being different,beautiful, and smart my daughter has been bullied relentlessly in our community with not much help from the establishment, needing to pull her out of school with a 3.8 GPA. Girl on girl bullying is so harmful and we pledge to keep our heads up high and not allow the bullying to continue. - Hamilton,mt

Savannah: Family is supposed to be kind, supportive, and the ones you go to. I'm not the sister you need. I have yelled at you, kicked you, smacked you, and called you idiot. I am so, so sorry that I embarrass you, sometimes. I'm sorry you think I hate you. I'm not sure if you're mad at me, still, but I want you to know I will try to help you with school more, and get angry less. Please forgive me. - Victoria

Savannah: Starting in 3rd Grade, I was bullied with anything the basic bully thought up. Names. Pushing. I was never left with long-healing scars, but I thought I would never have a day off from it. The most frightened I had ever been was when a boy, I'll call him Colter, threatened to kill me. I was afraid, and I reported it to the police officer at the school. I was promised he would leave me be, and he did. Don't worry. You're not alone. -

Katie: I am not always the best person. I tend to sometimes share my friends secrets around. of course, I don't just do it randomly, but if I hear that they have told one of my secrets, I'll tell one of theirs right back. No these secrets are never big that they tell about me, nor are the ones I tell, but it makes no sense. If they are telling my secrets, why am I friends with them, and if I'm telling theirs, why are they friends with me. -

Holly: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. - Brentwood

Holly: My best friend told me that I was a horrible person and tried to completely isolate me. She took all of my old friends and told them lies about me. I still have panic attacks about her and can't even talk about them with my counselor (same holly from earlier). While I believe I am happy now for the first half of this school year she has hurt me so bad I wanted to commit suicide. While I don't feel that now I am still pressured every day to be perfect around her. Is this normal? -

Holly: Having arthrogryposis (a muscle disability that does not affect anything in my brain) has made me a victim of girl on girl crime online and in school. I was called fat, ugly, and was told that nobody should ever like me because of my disability. The worst part is not these things being said to me but rather the people saying them. I considered these people to be my friends. I left that school just to have it happen again by my best friend, find a new BFF and have her do it to me as well. Now I am happy no thanks to my school's STARS counselor calling me childish and my assistant principal and regular counselor pressering me into doing something I was not ready to do. But after starting @be_nice_motivation on Instagram, I realized that people are always going to hurt me, but how I choose to react is what gives real strength. Hope my story inspires others to not tolerate bullying and for bullies to stop and think. -

Raphael: sorry that i said "your ass is fat"! - Miriam

Aisha Daher: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying and be kind to others. - Avondale

Alex: I know middle school and high school were tough for you and I'm sorry that at times, I was contributing to the problem. For awhile, I told myself that "at least I didn't do it as much as other people" but that's no excuse. If I could take back the attitude that I had towards you back then, I would in a heartbeat. I wish you the best of luck in life and I sincerely hope that you are happy. - Shalene

lamika jackson: stand up speak up -

Lily: I will never use bullying as a way of making myself feel better. I will stop bullying my own self so that I can show others the same compassion. If someone has offended me, I will turn to prayer or nature to heal my soul instead of trying to inflict the same pain on her. I will uplift others everywhere I go. Not only will I refrain from being unkind, I will compliment and make other girls know that they are of worth wherever I go. - Littleton

Lily: I have always been a very sensitive type, but I cringe at the way I treated my older sister growing up. My sister has a mole next to her nose that people mercilessly and viciously tormented her for having while she was growing up. Whenever I wouldn't get my way or wanted to be manipulative, I would target her worst insecurity too. Not knowing how to healthily express anger, I would hit her too. Rosie, I am so sorry for the way I treated you growing up. You are so beautiful and are better than me in so many ways. You deserve success and happiness, and though we are both two very different people, I will always love you. Gaining approval from all the neighborhood kids who bullied you by bullying you too was never worth your sweetness and happiness. I love you. You are wonderful, beautiful, loved, and talented in many ways. You are unique and valuable. I love you. - Rosie

Lily: In the fifth grade I was made fun of mercilessly for being skinny and for wearing a sports bra though I am flat-chested by the group of girls I was friends with. To try and fit in, in the sixth grade, I attempted to dye my hair blonde and wore several padded bras at once so I could look older and curvier than I am. I was called ugly and wore thick black eyeliner and was suspended when I refused to take it off as it violated my school's dress code. My best friend stopped talked to me, and I was completely alone. I went to a charter school, so there were really only thirty students I associated with on a daily basis and not a single one of them would talk to me. I eventually had to stop wearing makeup due to the dress code and spent every day crying because of comments I received regarding my haircut, fake chest, and loneliness. I eventually moved schools. I was made fun of a lot for being pale, so I began spray tanning, only to be made fun of for that. I turned to boys and promiscuity to find feelings of self worth, but now that I am a senior in high school ready to go to college, I realize that I spent my entire late childhood trying to please others to get them to like me when in reality, I have always liked myself just the way I am and that is all that really matters. -

Ellis Parker: I pledge to make sure I share kindness everyday. I will tell others to smile and to be happy. I will try to be kind to all I meet. I will help stop female bullying. I will tell others that they are free to be kind! - EL Dorado, Arkansas

Kris M.: I would love to tell my entire story to offer hope, but am finding it difficult to type it out. Even after all these years it's still a bit of a tender spot for me, one that I can sometimes talk about but sometimes can't. All I can really say is to those suffering, it does get better. These years are only a small part of your life that will seem insignificant in the future. To those instigating, I ask you to seek out your own help instead of unleashing your anger on others. -

Bekah: In choir, there are these 3 girls ganging up on me to make sure I feel like an absolute piece of crap. At the beginning of the year, I got the lead in the school musical and these three girls hated it. They went around calling me a diva, bitch, attention whore, stuck up, etc... All I ever did to them was treat them with kindness. One of them wad even my best friend of three years. It is now more than a month since the musical ended and I am in a small singing group with these three girls. They are still calling me names along with telling me that I should just quit everything. It has gotten to the point where I spend most nights sitting alone on the couch crying and thinking horrible thoughts about myself. One of the girls even told me that "I was setting myself up to be bullied". I love singing so much and this bullying has made want to stop because it just reminds me of them. I wish this all would stop. -

miaa bennett: one day i was in my old school and alot of girls was jealous of me i guess and they planned to jump me and then i had to stay up stairs during lunch and i used to go home and cry because those girls was really my friends but they just turned on my so just was bullying me -

danna : i pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying - bronx

dayjalee: of course i have had girls talk about me or say something about and i have said somethings to some girls that might have hurt there feelings -

Melissa: I've been bullied by girls all my life. I have also been a bully to girls. Now it take this pledge to spread KINDness in all wakes of life with anyone i encounter. Bullying has taken the lives of too many. Lets just respect and show compassion towards others. - Miami

A: I was never a social person, but I was never brooding or intimidating either. I welcomed friends with open arms and a VERY open mind... Only problem was, THEY didn't welcome ME. It was like this all throughout grade school and really intensified in Jr. High. I had my first "best girl friend" in Jr. High and I thought we had a pretty solid friendship until about 9th grade. She really wanted to be popular and I just didn't care enough, I guess. She did eventually get her wish (and I can now honestly admit to being happy for her -- she always seemed to fit in best with that crowd anyway), but it wasn't without some serious sacrifices... Like me. And kindness. And a general sense of morality... She successfully stole every boyfriend I ever had, turned groups upon groups of other kids against me, and made a whole ton of other people very VERY depressed (she said some pretty atrocious things to display her supposed superiority). Her cruelty knew no bounds. She called other girls "whales" and "cows" to describe their weight, started rumors about the "purity" of others, and even convinced many people that I was stuffing my bra (which made for very uncomfortable moments in the locker room before and after gym class when other girls would demand to see me without a shirt on - make no mistake: this is harassment; do not be as passive about something like this as I was... SPEAK UP!). This is all about a decade ago now, but they are memories that I will have for the rest of my life. The girl in question is still quite "popular" amongst her crowd, but we have since made some amends of sorts. We will never truly be friends again, this I know for sure, but we are amicable and there will be no glaring contest if ever we meet again (though we haven't actually SEEN one another in years). She never formally apologized for the way that she treated me and others, but I never saw that as a reason not to forgive her anyway. I feel that everyone should learn to forgive or -- at the very least -- let go of hatred/anger. -

Jessica-Lyn Saunders: I am taking the Kid Pledge. I pledge to unite kindness in an effort to end female bullying, which means the following: If I see a female being bullied, I will stand up for her. I will set an example for young females everywhere by spreading kindness and bullying awareness. I will take the time to reach out to others to make sure they're okay. I will never take bullying as an answer. - Toronto

Janelle: I pledge to encourage girls supporting other girls. I pledge to help us find joy in our similarities, and to encourage each other to appreciate the differences. I pledge to stop bullying when I see it, and to work to lift girls up so every one of them I come into contact with feels good about herself. - Savannah

Janelle: I apologize to every single girl I've judged because of my issues- behind my hand laughing with my friends, or to their face. I'm certainly not perfect. I've reacted out of jealousy and spite, and there is no excuse that will justify what I've said because I was bullied for so long and I know exactly how it feels to be ostracized. I'm so sorry. - All of them.

Janelle: When I was in elementary school, the "popular" girl told people not to hang out with me and started to ostracize me. It continued into elementary school. When I went through puberty in seventh grade, I distinctly remember walking back to the girl's locker room after PE and hearing "Hey, thunder thighs!" from some of the boys. She told them to say that to me. It's stuck with me for over a decade. I never knew anything was wrong with me, and I never understood why she disliked me so much. Because of her, I have massive self esteem issues. It's affected my relationships and how I see myself every day. I still don't know if I'll ever be able to be completely free of those demons. -

Macks: In high school, I was bullied, but "popular." I was bullied by another group of girls considered "popular" because of my financial status in my town and because I was a "goody-two shoes." Nothing hurts more than being hated for being who you are. I still resent these girls and I lost all of my self-esteem and confidence because of how they treated me. I avoided the lunch room and ate in a teacher's room instead because I pretended to do homework. I had a penny thrown at my head. I hate high school and the memories that still scar me. -

Opal: I was bullied. Several times. Because I was bullied. That made me mad. I had a girl come up to me and say 'Hi'. I was so mad at my bully. I responded in a mean tone. To this day I still see her, walking down the hallways. For years I've wanted to say, "sorry." So I'm sorry. - D

Opal: In 6th grade I had a friend. We were besties that whole year. It was a great year. Then came 7th grade there was a new girl. My bestie and I became friends with the new girl. The girl new pushed me away because she didn't like me. I would talk to the new girl and she would not answer. This made me mad. I knew she had heard me. But she didn't respond. Acted like I was a ghost. I was alone with no friends. I was really sad. I didn't want to go to school the next day and the next day. This went on for a long time. Me walking in the hall by myself. Until I opened my eyes and became friends with another group. -

marlie: I want to apologize to this girl that I talked about I told her she was ugly but I knew how she felt inside that pain she felt and I won't forget what I said . -

Coeashia Harriett Villafuerte: i have this friend Juliana she always want to be a leader in our singing group and i began to hate her but i realized that i'm gonna let her experience for being a leader so she could be happy, and the time that she would realize that being a leader is hard :) -

Eliza Paton: By taking the Kind Pledge, I pledge to continue to search and admire the beauty in the world and those who live in it, with kindness and gratitude. I pledge to do my part to stop hatred, violence, and ignorance in this world, specifically, but not limited, to women. I pledge to release positive and good vibes to help create a more unified, equal, and happier mankind. - Santa Clara, California

Arama: i? sorry for letting you do all the work. i dont like leadership. - Eyak

Mac: I pledge to not say negative things about any woman or even person anymore. And I also pledge to try & stop bullying when I see it. - Atlanta

Mac: Back in high school I had a group of girls who spread lies and gossip about me. Even worse most of the girls were my friends and they turned their backs on me when I needed them the most. I could no longer share stories or secrets with them because they would just turn around and tell someone about it. Looking back I realized it not only harmed my self-esteem when I was going through the growing pains of teenage life, but it hindered me on an emotional level as well. It made me put up my defenses and hide my true feelings (which isn't good when you're an actress). -

Lee McNulty: When I was a young teenager I suffered from bullying everywhere I went because my parents were divorced. Now that mean seem weird as today divorce happens all around us and many kids have parents that are divorced but in those days it wasn't true, people stayed together regardless. Girls I thought were my friends talked behind my back that my mother was loose and that I was weird and they pushed and shoved me in the halls, I learned that my dog was the only best friend I would ever have. Then I moved to a new city with my dad and this group of girls that used to hang out together targeted me and used to chase me home in order to beat me up. I had to learn ways to avoid them or risk being beat up by them. I became very anxious, nervous and not very willing to trust anyone. Many times I laid awake at night begging just to die. Bullying can zap the self-esteem out of young people and young people have so many challanges as it is, why make it harder. If you see someone that is being picked on, step up and say that it's not right. Try to put yourself in the other person's shoes that you are picking on. How would you feel if you were the brunt of the bullying. If you are bullying than take a look at why are you doing that? What is going on in your life that makes you feel like you need to strike out and talk to someone about that. Learn to be kind. -

sylvia Heredia : I WAS in the 8th, 9th grade in Shawnee Intermidiate School, in the Easton Area School District. There wetr two guys that were in my class. They would call me names, or said i had a big ass. Sometimes they tease my hair for being dirty, or snow flakes (dandruff ). I would ignore them, and just play their own games. So please be kond, words do hurt. This was in 1980. -

Anonymous: I have been physically and verbally bullied, and my "best" friend at he time just stood there and let it happen. My "best" friend is my friend to this day but I have never felt the same way toward her, and I don't think I will. As for the girl who bullied me she moved down the shore, but there are a few people I'm writing this for. Myself, Michael, Morgan, and anybody who was harmed by her. To Michael she bullied him so much that he cried during school, threw up out of anxiety and popped a blood vessel in his eye. As for Morgan She stood up for me, when no one else would, she brought me into her group of friend, and all these girls are my very best friends to this day -

Kristy: My experiences with bullying is something I will never forget. I was mostly bullied while I was in elementary school, a bit of high school as well. I will admit that when I got bullied, it damaged me. I had my stuff tipped out of my hands. I was called every name in the book. I would go to the girls washroom and cry because it was too much for me to handle that I could not deal with it. My self-esteem was so bad that I would bring myself down all the time. I would call myself a loser, a nobody, etc. I would always ask myself, if I am a good enough of a friend to have, I had a hard time overcoming it. I was really scared to go to school because I did not want to face my bullies. I was used by my so called "friends" they were pretending to be my friend, just so I would embarrass myself and look like an idiot. Everyone was even scared to go near me, it was like they thought I had germs or something. I hardly had any friends. I was basically a loner at my elementary school and to be honest, I did feel alone. It was the worst experience I have ever gone through. In high school, I had people make up lies about me that I said something to another person, and most people believed it, when I did not say anything at all. This happened when I first started grade 9, and I couldn't take it anymore that I made a decision that I regret and that is I dropped out of high school. Yes, I am a high school drop out, but in 2011, I did go back to school and got my diploma :) I really never knew and I still will never know why I got treated badly. I never did anything wrong. I will never know why bullying exists, I wish it never did. Bullying damages a lot of people and it is not cool or awesome to bully others. I would never ever bully anyone and I hope no one goes through what I went through. -

Lauren : One of my friends said that I was weird so I called her a bitch behind her back. I still feel bad since last year..... -

Taylor: I pledge to make a stronger effort be less judgemental of other girls and be a woman uplifter rather than a woman hater - Dallas

Theresa: When I was very young, I'm talking 1st until 4th grade, I had problems with a girl in my school. We were best frienemies before it had a title. I thought she was so pretty, I was always jealous of her. When I was young I thought she bullied me, I cried about the things she would say and do every night. My parents pulled me out of that school and I never really had problems with bullying again, but now that I am older I see we bullied each other. I know I said and did hurtful things out of jealousy and retaliation. I still see her from time to time, and I still believe she is one of the most gorgeous women I have ever met in person. The difference is now I tell her that, because it feels good to say and to empower rather than to try to destroy. I wish I knew then what I know now, because I could have changed both of our lives for the better. -

Gemmaury Edison: I remember when I tried out for the cheerleading team everyone laughed and doubted me. Every time I walked down the hall everyone laughed and was like, "If she makes the team then it'll all go to hell." "Haha what are you talking about? Ugly bitches can't make the team anyway.." I went to all the tryouts but I didn't work as hard as I originally did. Anyway, I made the team and because of it not a lot of people go to games because this one girl wanted to be on the team and supposedly I stole her spot so everyone started laughing and picking at me because I made it and she didn't. -

Brie: Well it all started when I was in 7th grade and it all started from Facebook. So I had a huge crush on Justin Bieber and Dylan Sprouse and this girl thought it was ok to clown me about it. On the fist day of middle school the girl and her friends started clowning me about it much that I didn't wanna go to school anymore. The dean didn't do nothing about it. One time I wanted to kill myself cause of it. I'm in 10th grade now and she still bullies me about it but I just gotta ignore it. -

Katie B. : I pledge to be an example for my daughter... and to teach her to treat all people with kindness and respect. - Pittsburgh

Amanda: Bullying is something that has changed my life forever. My sophomore year of high school is where my whole life changed. Some of the more popular girls at my school decided that it would be fun to spread a rumor about me. Every friend that I had at the time quickly left because no one wanted to be the next target of the girls. I dreaded going to school every day. Every time I walked into one of my classes I was greeted with whispers and laughs from my classmates. I spent every second trying to hold back tears and disappear. I fell into a deep depression that I was unable to get out of. It followed me all the way until college. I thought high school girls were bad, but the college girls that I met on my soccer team were worse. The constant ridicule and exclusion from the team ate away at me. Eventually I couldn't take it any more and began to cut myself. This only gave the girls another topic to torture me about. I never will understand how girls can treat each other the way they do, and that when girls see other girls struggling, they target them even more. I almost took my life that year.. No matter how badly I have been treated by other girls, I make an effort to treat others kind. I know what it feels like to be on the other end of the viscous words which is why I try not to purposefully hurt others because I never want anyone to go through what I did these past few years. -

Jasmine: I am truly sorry to the person I hurt their feelings. When you are in a situation like I was in it is harder to solve the problem because you can't reach out to them. So yes I am truly sorry to that person I hurt their feelings. And next time I'm going to be more wise about the problem I encounter. - Who I hurt

Jasmine: Im truly sorry to those people that i said mean things to. Sometimes that could happen when you know they are saying mean things about you so you just want to let all your feelings out. So yes I'm truly sorry for all my words and actions. - Who i Hurt

Gaby Morales: I wasn't someone who was bullied growing up and I don't have a tragic story about girl- against- girl crime but I've definitely witnessed it between many of my peers. It's constant name calling and most of all, putting other girls down. The fact that girls get made fun of for their weight, skin, and color is just ridiculous and although this has never personally affected me- it has to end. -

Bernice: I pledge to spread love, happiness, and peace to a girl. I promise to always give a girl positivity and to lighten up her day. To make her feel reassured with herself. Because if I can do that for her maybe one day she can do it for someone else who needs it. - Miami

Bernice: I apologize if I ever made someone doubt the person they are or want to be. The only person you need to truthful with is yourself. You need to believe in you. If I ever took away your self love or made you feel insecure i'm sorry. That's not a nice feeling and no one should ever have to feel that. Everyone should be happy with who they are and taking that away from someone is truly disgusting. - Few who've been hurt by me

Bernice: The truth is that I am the outsider. I am not the average girl and I prefer staying at home and reading a book then going out and being immature. So I was never the first choice. I was always left in the sidelines and my light didn't shine as bright as the others. I always tried to fit in and hangout with the "cool kids". I lied about who I truly was for the sake of someone else's attention that I didn't need. I never had a real friend until recently and even then it's still hard to get used to not being left to the side. -

Jasmine: i have never been bullied before but i have seen others being bullied. I have also tried to not hurt other girls or boys because that wouldn't make me happy if it was done to me but of course there are some days where you let it slip and you hurt someones feelings.I have had those days like any ordinary human does but later it kind of feels like i hurt myself and i apologize since i know i did something wrong. -

We are not better or worse than each other in any aspect; we're all equal. I'm sorry. - Gabi, Jessica, and Caroline

Isabella: In middle school, and even now in high school, I've been a part of some girl-against-girl crime; mostly competitiveness between myself and a few other girls. I've been dancing my whole life and with that comes a lot of judging, body shaming, whether you're good enough, or better than someone else. We've always competed with each other about who's better or who can run the team or not and I just wish it would stop so we can have fun. High school is supposed to be a fun and exciting experience and I just wish that we could all get along and be kind to one another. -

Emily Munoz: In the seventh grade, I was friends with four other girls and we were always together. We rarely argued and if we did it would be for something very ridiculous. At the end of seventh grade I had an issue with two of those girls because one of them was changing the other girl a lot and taking away my friendship with her. The girl that was changing the other and I have always had an issue after she stole my phone one day and never gave it back until the end of the day. I confronted them telling them they we ruining my friendship with the girls but didn't seem to care. All four girls started saying really hurtful words to me and I really didn't like it.

Aliyah A. Abbott: By taking the Kind Pledge, I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. - Miami

Aliyah: At the age of 9, I was bullied by my "best friend" at the time. She made sure that no one tried approaching me or befriending me. I lost plenty of people that I thought had my back. Then, things got worse. She formed a group with my former friends and they would say negative things about me to my face, near me, and to the remaining friends I had. I thought things were at a breaking point so I approached my mom and talked to her about it. I was given the choice to transfer or end the year at the school I was going to. The day after that, I was called down by the school counselor. I reached the counselor's office and found myself surrounded by the same girls that made me regret ever waking up in the morning. We agreed to avoid contact towards each other and just go our separate ways. I thought it was all over and okay but going to the counselor just made them more aggressive and vicious. They began passing notes to me daily around class or leaving them in my book bag saying "you're ugly" or "kill yourself." I cried to my mom when I got home and begged her to transfer me to another school. Since it was the last few weeks of school they didn't let me. On a daily basis for a whole month I was bullied by people I cared for and someone I saw not just as my best friend but as my sister. The people who bullied me traumatized me. It wasn't easy for me to make friends due to the fact I couldn't trust anyone. However, I'm a stronger person today because I had my family and true friends to rely on. It made me realize that in this world there are going to be people who are going to try their hardest to bring you down in any way. You just have to keep your head up and be strong, -

Stephanie del Pino: I have a friend that experienced bullying and got very depressed. People were calling her such names as fat, ugly, worthless, and so much more horrible things. She almost started to believe she was all these awful things. My friend started to cut herself because of this and as a cry for help would send me messages and pictures. This directly affected me so much that I knew I had to tell someone. I spoke to my mom about it and went to the school counselor and got the help she needed. She's doing better these days and we are still close friends. I hope she never has to go through this again. She knows she has me as a friend and she can count on me. -

Kaitlyn Rodriguez: When my teacher assigned me this i did no think i had anything to tell, because i was scared of sharing my feelings and thoughts and experiences.But the truth is i do have a lot to tell and even though it hurts me going back to that time when i was unhappy sad and depressed, i feel like this is the right place to tell it.Back in fifth grade i was moved to a new school , everyone already had their group of friends so in the beggining i felt kind of excluted from everyone else. Then i met some of the 4 most amazing people in the world my best friends. Everyone always made me feel left out, they made fun of me they spread so so many rumors about me since i was the new girl i was the fresh meat to be attacked.These girls the (popular group) would hear me talking to my friends about something then they would go to another girl and say i was talking bad about them. When i would never dare firstable im not that type of person and why would i want to start more drama.I lost count of how manny times i came in to class crying ; and the teacher had to pull me outside and ask me what was wrong , I would never dare tell anyone what was going on because i felt scared of what the girls might say about me and anything else bad they could to to me.For all these months i kept my feelings locked up in a jar never told anyone what i was feeling or thinking. Sad to say a lot of bad thought ran through my heead for example why am i here? whats the point? am i ugly?..yes you are ugly , but the worst though was having thoughts about hurting myself.Thankgod that during these months my bestfriend Bri was always a shoulder to cry on and she kept my head above the water.She always made me fell so special and she told me that everything they were saying was not true.At some point they started talking bad about me to my friends. Then summer came , summer was like a mental therapy to me i had so much time to reflect and think .So now these were my thought I am beautiful i am worth something I am impotant . I started being happy again being my self for once. When 6th grade came around i was ready to face anything because i knew what ever they would say about me was not true that i should not pay attention to their rude words or mean comints.I had so much self confidence i cant change that fact that people are rude they are going to talk bad about me but what i can control is my wellbeing and happiness.Now i am so sos so much happier than i was two years ago.Girls be happy have confidence in yourself dont ever let anyone get you down . -

Gabriela Loriga : I pledge to be nice and considerate of others, I pledge to speared kindness to others. I pledge to forgive but not forget and to put forth my effort to stop female bullying. - Miami

gabriella: when I was in second grade there was this new girl. she was mean to everybody and told lies about them . I remember how she would act like a cat or dog and try to bite my friends and I . but then this one day I went to a friends pool party and couldn't get in the deep end where everyone actually was , ten when it was lunch time everyone got out except me. I couldn't hear anybody because I had ear problems so I had to wear ear plugs or I could die from infections. then the girls mother started yelling at me and started calling me stupid because I didn't come out of the pool. but that is not the worst the next day rumors about me spread and pretty soon I started getting bullied just because I have a medical problem. -

Gabriela Loriga : I have seen this types of aggression first hand on what girls do. My ex-best friend had known me since 5th grade (I am now in 9th grade) we had been as tight as a knot. we share stories and secrets as well as likes and dislikes. when suddenly a year ago she stop talking to me, she wouldn't even look at me; I had no idea what I had done to make her angry. When a friend saw that I was really confused asked her behind my back and she advised it was best to stay away because a best friend that thought you were being annoying wasn't a friend at all! I had been told a few years before that my best friend was one type of person in front of my face and another behind my back, as well as a big-mouth. since she was my best friend and had given me no reason for distrust I defended her, just to find out that she wasn't at all the person I thought knew. This year on the first day of class she comes all friendly and asks for my schedule and pretends nothing happens. she was being hypocritical and thought that I was just going to forget how badly she treated me! but some scares especially those she created can't be healed in one day -

Elizabeth Palma-D'Souza: Not only will I promise to avoid gossip and girl on girl judgment, I will start standing up for it. I will simply voice that there's no need to speak about others, especially, if you don't even know them personally - Miami

Elizabeth Palma-D'Souza: It's so easy to judge others. I'll admit, I used to get involved in gossip but honestly I was never the type to be spreading rumors or constantly talking bad about people. I feel like people who do that just want to make themselves look better. Rumors play with people's egos and give the people spreading them a false sense of pride. In a way, I guess it's good that people talked negatively about me because that's what made me realize how fraudulent rumors are. I never believe what's told to me because I know lies are so easy to be fed too others. I'm just sorry for ever believing a rumor because that alone is supporting the person who spread it and bringing down the person it is about. - No one specifically

Nicole: I pledge to no ever make any girl feels bad about her self or spread rumors or to be unkind in any way. - Miami

Elizabeth Palma-D'Souza: Throughout my life, I wouldn't consider myself to have ever been "bullied", but unfortunately my name has been in the mouths of others. I used to get hung up on rumors a lot from eighth to about tenth grade. I'd be lying if I said I haven't cried about it. Knowing that a group of people or more have set this false judgment on you isn't fun. To elaborate, I was called a slut. What was sickening to me was that at this time I had never even been in a real relationship. Additionally, any guy that I did talk with maybe only got a kiss. I look back and I'm disgusted because lies spread so quickly. How can someone blindly accuse a 13-year-old who had only kissed a boy a "slut"? I always valued my image and felt that these lies we shattering it. However, thankfully, overtime I realized that my own opinion on myself is all that matters. I will never let the judgments of others get in the way of my own view on myself. In the end, it really is my life and I know who I am as a person and my morality, everything else is just side commentary that isn't important unless I make it. I still care about what people think of me, though. I try to be friendly with a lot of people so that they know me for who I am, not for what they hear, but in the end, I've learned to love and value myself because I'm the only person who can properly judge myself. Words have no power until you give it to them. -

Claudia: My pledge is that every girl should be treated equally, with respect. Maybe not everyone is beautiful or smart, but you still should be kind to them. You don't have to be friends with them just don't be rude. You don't know what some girls are going through at home or anywhere and maybe they're depressed and if you aren't nice, they will get even more depressed and maybe want to attempt suicide. We don't want that, so remember BE KIND!!!! - Miami

Claudia: One day I was at school and this girl asked me if I had taken her book bag from her and hid it somewhere. I said no, but I actually had taken it. She started crying because she couldn't find it anywhere and I felt bad for her and thought that it was probably better if I told her the truth. So I went up to her and told her the truth, that I was the one who hid her book bag and I gave it back to her. -

Jennifer Rivas: One day i was just sitting in the table in my school lunch room. All of a sudden a girl picks me up from my chair and pushes me to the wall and shoves me down to the ground. All of this just because i was asking her boyfriend a question.She thought i was trying to steel him away from her. :( -

VICTORIA: When i was 9 there was a girl named narriana that called me a liar and i hadnt done anything to her and that hurt me that she though i was a liar when she was just making that up.The day after we had a big argumen infront of my whole class and she said a bunch of times that she couldnt be friends with a liar. The day after she came to me and said that she was really sorry and it took timebut eventually i forgave her and she bacame my friend but it was still a little hard to trust her . -

I usually laughed with them and didn't think much of it, but then the next year I thought about it and now I am really sorry. I am sorry for what I've done, Kathryn. - Kathryn

Ana Basso: The truth is that I hate the things that girls do to each other. I was in a girl-against-girl crime in Elementary, two times actually. First, in second grade this girl throughout the years kept on bothering me by saying mean words to me, and (which at that time was very shy and my face got red when a lot of people started looking at me.) Then, again in fifth grade a different girls started say rumors about me, like saying I have things in my hair and things like that. I love the idea of the kind campaign. I will sure be nicer to some girls in my school! -

abby: i have never had a problem with anyone and i always make new friends -

isa: Growing up as a girl is tough right out of the womb you just know you need to be beautiful. Even as a 9 year old.. In elementary I was bullied because I was called "Obese". Girls should not be bullied because of showing up "Naturally pretty" nothing overall that actually I just hope as generations go by we women should be respected and not judged by other women. Its horrible what social media is doing that no one is medium they are either anorexic or obese.Everyone is beautiful and shouldn't need makeup to hide away that beauty with fake products. -

Angelina: my pledge today is that i think that girls should be treated like anyone,anywhere because there is nobody that is perfect every girl has a different attitude which is great because then you could be able to get to know more,and more girls and the more that you meet would be much easier to to stop this bullying that is happening in middle or even elementary schools - Miami,florida

Karen D.: Have you ever heard of indirect girl against girl crime? It's weird. You feel bullied by someone you've never talked to, nor have they ever talked to you. You think of all the things they haven't done, and blame on them, and it makes you feel sad. And they don't know. That person who you feel bullied by, that person who never talked to you. And you just feel bullied by nothing. Just because they didn't talk to you. -

Brenda: I was always bullied through out my whole high school years, so I started hanging out with the bad crowed because I thought that they liked me but it was only so they can play a mean trick on me, they stole my binder and through my school work and my all round the school and it lead me to dropping out of school.

Ronnie Jay: I'm a guy.. I learned about this website via: Arielle vandenberg's snapchat. I've witnessed girl/girl bullying and its not a kind thing, the things girls say to each other/ about each other are horrid and could really make a person feel less valuable and have low self esteem. But not only girls/women experience these harsh encounters, men do too. I, personally haven't experienced bullying from another person but I have compared myself to others in the past and if you've done the same you know that its not a great feeling. So my message to you ladies is that you ARE worth it and you are beautiful no matter what people say or even what your negative thoughts tell you. Don't forget to be KIND! -

Kelly: I was bullied by a group of girls elementary through high school. I felt nervous all of the time. Worried that I would run into them, say something wrong, look wrong, displease them in some way. I navigated this by being defensive and strong willed. Sadly it wasn't just me. I saw it happen to others and then again and again through college, grad school and in work. I also noticed that even when men didn't like each other they didn't tear each other down. We as women, ladies, girls can change this by doing exactly what this campaign asks. Be Kind. We can be stronger and better and more wonderful with each others support. -

Sierra: I pledge to be a Nice Girl, and contribute to the fight against girl on girl bullying. - Oceanside

Cameren: I pledge to become a nicer person and stand up for what i believe in. I pledge to watch what i say and do to others. I pledge to put a stop to bullying and making people feel better about themselves everyday. - SugarLand

Cameren: I am sorry i lied and pinned blame on you on a situation that was not even true. However i am not sorry i did as much as i am guilty what you did to me was wrong. You bullied me when i was new and didnt know anyone. I did not do it because i hate you i did it because i was scared and acted on impulse and did the thing i thought at the time would help me. I am truly sorry for bringing you all that trouble in your life in the end i hope you realize why i did it and understand that. - Destiny

Cameren: Growing up in this society you are already under judging eyes. I am a high school senior and i am glad my journey is almost over. I went through high school with multiple bullies and i always wondered why people did not like me even when i did not know them ,as i have grown up i realized nothings wrong with me, there is always another underlying issue with that person or someone who is in their ear and as my mother always said if you have people who dislike you it means you are doing something right. I am against bullying as it is unacceptable in every form. After going through these experiences i am working on a path to becoming a better person and watching what i say and do as words and actions hurt a lot more than sticks and stones. Also music has helped me through my low points, a really good group who addresses lots of issues in their songs and have lots of self empowering/confident songs is Little Mix. I promise you will not be disappointed just listen to the lyrics in all their songs you will understand. -

Anh: I pledge that I will never hurt anybody feelings. I pledge that I will find kindness! - Midway

Nadine Jacob: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end all kinds of bullying :) - Ottawa

Anonymous: Bullying for me started in 5th grade. It's not a regular thing, like daily bullying. It only happens once in awhile. Especially when i make mistakes. These girls, well at the moment they are not my friends. They hate me. And i feel like they're making other girls hate me too. But that's not the problem right now. Actually there's no problem. I just wanted to tell you guys. Lol. But i also want to say most girls don't have the strength LIKE i do. I've been made fun of how skinny i was and how my legs were twig-like. And these girls were pretending to be my friend when really they hated me. Funny right? I don't care. I could care less if they don't like me or if they're talking bad about me. I didn't do anything wrong but make mistakes like every other normal person. I've been through hell and i am here today laughing, having fun with my best friend and there's nothing more than i love in the world at the moment. Keep in mind that the girls won't be with you through your whole life. Tormenting you. They won't be there. That's why today i am laughing and smiling and not giving a flying fry about what they're saying about me. -

Jamie: I am sorry to Olivia to for being a bad friend and for not being there for her. - Olivia

Jamie: I am currently being bullied by these girls who used to be my close friends. They called leaf blower for no reason and they are shady about their rudeness. I have no idea why because i never did anything wrong. Honestly, i have called them many rude things too, but only because they're rude to me. Right now i am frightened to start high school, and having no one to sit at lunch. I am so scared ...but i don't want to be scared. I want to be tough. But i don't know how to get through this. I've called the girls a bitch and low-key haters but it just backfires and just when i think everything is okay, it is not. -

Tiffany Tripp: I started being bullied in grade school by my own friends, because i was different. From then on i was continuously bullied even through High school. Being really good at sports and having short hair wasnt easy when it should have been. I had been called a dike, stupid, freak, things thrown at me, had chips crushed in my hair, drawings on my lockers, and even fights were picked with me because i was small. I never told my mom. I grew from all of this faster than most, and on my own. By age 13 I became the "protector", I stood up for those who couldnt for themselves no matter size, age, boy/girl. And do to this day. I was very different from the other kids so instead of giving in and getting mad, i learn the phrase "kill them with kindness" and "treat those how you want to be treated". My heart still goes to those that are hurt emotionally and physically each day but i believe that if i can find the light in the dark then so can they... Much Love -

Emily: My name is Emily and I have been bullied throughout my life by various girls. I have had vicious rumors started about me and have been picked on. The most recent bullying case of mine was at prom my junior year. "Awards" were given out to the chosen students selected by the student body. Some of the categories were good like 'Most Christian', 'Most Improved' and so on. One category in particular I disliked when I was told to pick someone for it. It was 'Most Likely to Never Move Out'. I understood what it meant although many did not. They thought it was some fun and random category, but I saw how it was pure bullying. It meant that the person to receive the award will do nothing with their life and are thought to be losers when they grow up. I did not choose any student to fill that category. The time came for prom and I went alone. Everything began great and I hung out with friends and saved one of them from catching the table on fire from the little candles. Then came time for the superlative trophies to be handed out by the high school principal. We all clapped for the winners of each award. I was positive i wouldn't receive anything because why would anyone think of the non-popular girl? I was absolutely shocked to hear my name called for none other than the 'Most Likely to Never Move Out' award. The winners were supposed to go on stage and receive their trophy, but I just kept sitting in shock. They called my name again and told me to come up, so I did. It was the most embarrassing thing to go up and shake hands with the staff and take the trophy while every clapped like I won an Oscar. My night was ruined. My closest friends stood around me to make sure I was okay. They knew that was not right to give me or anyone. Many students went to the headmaster later and stood up for me, even the headmaster's son. I don't understand why that was even a category in the first place. The funniest thing was that I walked on stage the very next day to receive a certificate to the Honor Society. I hate this has happened to me and I never want anyone to go through what I felt. This will be my senior year and I plan on trying to start a Kind Club at my school to make sure this never happens again. -

Emily: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying - Knoxville

Jordan: Hello readers, first I'd like to start off by letting you know I'm a guy (yes, girls can be awful to boys too), and this post is about a [former] friend from high school. This story starts when I was a sophomore. The girl who hurt me was a freshman. I was at a school football game w/ a classmate and I noticed this girl who was haing fun on the bleachers. I asked him who she was, he told me her name and warned me of how awkward she was. Right then, I wanted to be her friend is b/c I'm sure we were in the same boat given this is a high school setting and social hierarchy kept anyone from befriending people like us. I only knew 2-3 people at my school so what better thing to do than to make a new friend? In the same night, that mutual aquaintance (who talked down on her) introduced me and we became close friends soon after. I was all about making the group bigger since middle school, it was in my nature to invite her to hang out with my close group of friends at lunch, breaks inbetween classes, assemblies, and rallies (oh the nostalgia!). Sure enough, she and a close friend of hers were immersed and molded into the group and things became fun with her around. My sophomore year was a tough one, the seriousness of my athletics was something new and difficult, I realized how important grades were for college, and I desperately wanted to fit in. At this point my only bestfriend who my mom trusted me hanging out on the weekends with had gotten a girlfriend and joined a new sport so I realized I'd better branch out before I'm sitting alone as a lonely third wheel on the weekends because from what I knew none of my friends could hang out on the weekends. I then successfully found new friends outside my school who could hang out on weekends while still keeping my close group at school. ----Sophomore year was the best, until it went downhill in the coming summer and grade year---- Beginning of junior year I began to notice how often my friends were hanging out w/o inviting me and always taking snobby, vindictive photos they knew I would eventually see or tell me about. This is what I did not understand... of course I'd be jealous from not being there and finding out about it, how else would a member of the group feel? I could tell they found pleasure in excluding me and seeing I was depressed over it... Later there were a mixture of signs like not making room to sit with them at lunch or any breaks (the classic Mean Girls "you can't sit with us" attitude), I felt very alone whether I was with them or not. The weekend hangouts continued w/o me, athletics got more serious, teammates began to bully/haze me, and I could just see the a huge plummit of my wellbeing appraoching...I then learned she was the culprit behind everything, and it tore me apart. She took a big part in arranging hang outs, and didn't invite me to her birthday party (we all took birthdays seriously in the group). I began to float through my school halls like a ghost. One day at lunch they didn't make room for me again, and I basically sat near them as they all snickered and giggled b/c I made things "weird". At this moment, I made the best decision of my life by walking away and deciding I'd rather be alone than be somewhere where I was unwelcomed. I started spending lunch in a teacher's classroom and getting ahead on HW so I had more free-time at home. That year finished off with me having but one friend (who had a gf). Senior year was gonna be long... To keep it short, my senior year was intense athletics, college apps, and trying to survive the agony of living w/ conceited, self-interested high school idiots every day. But I remember one time the girl had the nerve to ask me: "Hey Jordan, who do you hang out with now?" I answered: "no one" "oh, so what do you do?" "do my HW and get to bed by 9" "oh, cool" I kept it short b/c I couldn't stand the sight of her. This was the last conversation we ever had, notice how she didn't invite me to hang out with "her" friends. I find it ironic how the tables turned and I was now the reject. It killed me to realize she didn't show me any reciprocity; going out of her way to be a good friend to someone who needed it. I was her stepping-stone friend. I brought the group together, and they slowly kicked me out. I'm not very talented in writing in a way which allows me to paint my emotions onto a keyboard, all I can say is what she did was so evil... She stole my friends, dated a close teammate of mine who she then manipulated into not hanging out w/ me ever again, and gave the last coup de grace w/ the above conversation... That's my HS story... However, I'm now a college student in SoCal, soon to graduate, and doing wonderfully! I'm doing an internship in NYC and I've made new friends from all over the country and world. It's funny to learn how many people were in the same boat as me after HS, and how maybe I wasn't so alone. Our stories and similarities have brought us closer, and I'm happy to say I have a close group of friends now. I didn't mention it earlier, but I was suicidal at one point in HS. There were two things that saved me: 1.) Music. I'm a firm believer in the quote: "when words don't speak, music does". In times of trouble, get on your computer, watch a movie, or do anything that allows you to discover new tracks. When you find one, listen to it for hours and let it liberate you. 2.) a quote on tumblr which goes: "don't kill yourself because a year from now you'll be thanking yourself you didn't". This is what really saved me. This quote had me looking forward to college, law school, and adulthood. Sometimes sucking it up is the only solution. HS is four years of your life which will fly by. You have the control to decide when you want to have fun and make memories, don't inflate the idea of HS being so great b/c everyone says it's supposed to be. Also, the social hierarchy goes away after HS, you'll have all the power to remake yourself once it's done! Thank you Kind Campaign for letting me share! I admire everyhthing you do, and wish you would extend your organization to the male population. I'd happily be a part of it! ~ J -

Jenna: Hi my name is Jenna and I was bullied my first 3 years of high school by a group of girls who i thought were my friends. They accused my of things that I didn't do and spread lies about me to other friend groups, this made it hard for me to make new friends. I would become friends with a new group of friends and they would tell them lies about me and then i would be friendless again. I've been called a whore, a bitch and a liar in front of most of my classmates. Attending a catholic all girls school is difficult because there are only so many friend groups because there are only 98 girls in my class. They created a name so that they could all talk about me while i was sitting in the room, calling me a whore and a slut while I sat about 5 feet from them. I was never physically abused but I was emotionally and mentally abused. It hurt me a lot and has created problems with trusting others. I have problems becoming close with people in fear of them leaving once they meet/ have a small discussion with those girls. I hated going to school, would wake up and pretend i was sick just to stay out of school and away from them. I formed severe anxiety due to the stress of running into them in the hallway and was in and out of the hospital my freshman, sophomore and junior years of high school. I used to be the girl with a ton of friends who didn't care what people said about her. I was stress free. Now I don't really have that many friends and I am a very stressful person. My parents have been very helpful throughout the entire thing and also along the way I met this fantastic guy who has supported me and got me through the dark part of everything. Now going into my senior year, i want to leave my school loving it. I don't want to remember high school as this terrible experience that i don't want to remember. I am trying to start some type of program at my school that helps other girl coming through the school with the same or similar problems like mine. When i was going through this i didn't have much support from the school because they didn't really know how to handle it. I don't want that to be the issue for anyone else. I want to protect these girls coming through the school and i want to help stop bullying. Please contact me if you have any advice on how to help me with this idea that i have! This is an amazing program you have. Thank you Jenna -

Miranda: In college one of my roommates called me crazy for asking her to be quieter in our kitchen and the other roommate stopped talking to me. -

Jackie: I am honestly not a very nice person. I'm seen as negative to others and I kinda am. I can act mean and maybe even sassy, but I'm actually a decent person. I used to look at the world differently, it seemed brighter and I was carefree. I never treated anyone badly or looked at the world negatively until I was treated with negativity and I'm starting to feel really bad now. I haven't ever bullied someone to even a slight level of harshness, only teased people and I've just realized how bad I feel about this. I hope I can catch myself when I'm acting inappropriately next time and shape myself into a better person because this world doesn't need anymore bad people. -

Jami B.: I'm homeschooled now (not just because of the school, I have ADD and my schooling helps with that) but I went to Carter Lake Elementary since Kindergarten. I thought the school was bad, but now that I look back on it, it was so horrible. The girls at school stuck together in packs, being nice was a rare thing to do when it was outside of their "circle". I feel so ashamed looking back on it and sucking up to those girls. Worst part? When I told teachers how other students were being bullied, they said stuff "it's not happing unless the person who was "bullied" tells us", they were so BLIND to the students pain! Another thing I HATE myself for is that I teased this one kid (Kai, he must've had some "issues") in class, I thought I was just playing but I realize now I was bullying him, I'm just grateful that I wasn't teasing as I grew older and instead played games like "eraser hockey" in free time. Carter Lake leads a horrible example, I remember that the teachers (Principal included) only taught us about bullying like 2-3 times, and that was when I was in my last year of public school (3rd grade). And the teachers COULD have done better job, but they were always focusing on the students that I believed looked prettier or had better things than the other students (Not as pretty, didn't have cool new things, Tomboys (me)). I remember when one of the teachers (I believe Mrs. Peck, she liked pigs, this really curly blonde hair) told this other girl (Celeste, she was kinda a bully and stuck up, bit bratty) that she (Celeste) can't help clean the tables (which made no sense, none of the students were in trouble) Celeste decided to clean the tables, I turned by back to grab my backpack and I see all the girls (some boys too) crowded around celeste who stood at the sink, crying. Her hair was wet and some parts of her top wet too, I asked her whats wrong and kept one-armed hugging her and just rubbing her should in comfort, tried rubbing the water from her top using the paper towels. One of the girls told me what happened. That when she (Celeste) tried to wash the tables, Miss Peck took one of the sponges (which as full of water!) and rung it out over Celeste! I hugged Celeste, telling her it was okay over and over. Finally the teacher came over, hugged Celeste and told her, she was sorry. I saw it in Mrs. Peck's eyes, she wasn't sorry at all and worried she would get in trouble. I kept telling Celeste to tell her parents. I don't whether or not she told her parents, either way, it wouldn't surprise me if Mrs. Peck wouldn't get fired, all that school cares about it just getting money and students not telling the troubles that go on. There were only, barely a handful of teachers who enjoyed teaching, and even they could be strict and had their bad days. Now when I pass by the school, bad memories hit me like a wave. The school's changed (physically), they were at least 3 full playground sets (one gated in for smaller kids), a hooded, HUGE basketball court, about 4 sets of swings, and a huge grassfield, the people watching the kids bring out this big cage thing with a top that flips open containing a soccer ball, few basketballs, 1 or 2 footballs, or just regular bouncy balls. They had a few HUGE trees that me (and some other students) hung around at but couldn't climb, and the tree outside the smaller playset, students would use broken off branches to clear the dirt around the area, collected the pebbles that covered around the play and swing sets, acorns, pretty rocks, flowers, ect and decorate around the tree. It looked so pretty! The buildings were averaged with brown brick and a huge library, the school had pathways and everything. Now there's just this huge, empty gated in grass he field, the buildings are bigger and gray, and it resembles a military school. The only good memories of that school was stopping this one bully named Robbie that picked on twins (Zeke and Zeb, they stuck around me cause they were terrified of being bullied, Robbie even grabbed on of the twin's wrist an said "I HATE YOU", I shoved him back and yelled at him, he pushed me back a bit and Chris defended me), sharing some of my bread with Elizabeth and playing with kids that later acted so horrible. I feel better that I've gotten this off my shoulders. I hope that Carter Lake gets closed down, it's too far gone to be "saved". -

Erin: I watched my Dad die in front of me and since then I have been battling PTSD. I have really bad panic attacks and depression all the time and I've been picked on so much because of it. I've been told to just get over it. I've been told I'm a cry baby. People are constantly saying mean and hurtful things about me to my face and behind my back when I have my attacks. I just want to feel normal for a day and it doesn't help when I have everyone wanting to bring me down farther. A month ago, I lost my boyfriend as well. Watching him be buried was hard enough, I didn't need multiple people saying, oh here we go again. I miss the two most important men in my life and I am constantly being dragged through the dirt by other people because of my panic attacks. I just want one day where no one will make fun or me or talk bad about me for something I wish I never had. They are scary enough as it is. I just wish I was normal. -

emily abey: i have been mean to my friends I'm being honest I'm not going to blame it on anyone else but to me,being mean is much more easier than being nice,and I'm so sorry if i have hurt anyone i do not wish to hate or bring negativity. -

Alexis Carfrae: Truthfully, I'm not always the kindest girl. But ever since I've seen mean girls and watch the "Kind Campaign" documentary, my life has changed for the better. I've been nicer, happier, and KINDer. Thank you, Kind Campaign for changing my life. -

Naomi : I was bullied at my dance class and bullied at school because I danced. I am not very skinny, but I am not fat either. I was once told that I was "too fat to dance." After that, I didn't think dance mattered. Yet today, I still dance almost 6 classes a week and I love it more than anything. Lauren and Molly, you came to our classroom today. Hearing your bullying stories make me realize that their are much more painful senarios than my own story, yet, everyone's matters. -

BNL: I'm sorry for making you believe your expectations for yourself are impossible, that everyone around you expects you to reach these expectations, that you cry really hard whenever you feel you've disappointed someone, that you're pushing yourself so hard to not disappoint everyone that you feel you've lost yourself. - BNL

me: I apologize that you may never have the courage to help yourself. I am sorry that you may never have the courage to come out of your shell and ask for you friends to support you. I am sorry that your expectations for yourself are too high. I'm sorry others with equally high expectations of you don't understand you. I am sorry no one around you see's your struggle. I am sorry for the fear that if they did see it, they still wouldn't understand it. I'm sorry I can't help you right now. But please try to stick it out. - me

L.: To all my friends, I'm sorry for not always being there for you, even when you tried to be there for me. I would just be judgemental and critical of everyone and would distance myself from you all because I didn't see then that you would always stand by my side when others wouldn't. Forgive me and believe me when I say I will always stand by your side because I know you're by mine. - Friends

Cynthia E. Powell: Well, It hasn't happened in school or online, it happened at home actually... An apartment, there were these 3 girls that lived under me... They were really rude to me.. I considered them friends from the start but later on 'they', 3 sisters, have turned on me and started teasing me. They called me a "Bitch" they said "Fuck you" ...I remember when they were eating pistachios sitting on the stairs and I had no way to get back up into my home because they were blocking the way back up... Anyways, you know what those girls did to me with their pistachios? They used the shell, and threw it at me constantly, threw it at my face, all over... That was disgusting, with their saliva? How rude. They wouldn't stop.. they called me many harsh words, I tried to act like it was okay.. we were all in the backyard, I just walked away and hid in the backyard, I was crying.. They saw me crying and said something like "Yeah, keep crying" sarcastically while laughing and their younger sister said "crybaby" cry baby didn't really offend me yet they did ruin a small portion of my life.. I was 8 or 9 at the time and had no way to defend myself in a way... As you can see my grammar etc. is bad because I'm still young.. I'm currently 11 now.. I won't forget that day because they ruined it all.. for me.. I thought we would be friends but they just started turning on me. They NEVER said sorry. I moved out so I don't have to worry about them anymore, I never liked them since that day.. Sorry I typed so much, I just wanna add a couple more things.. I also remember the time I was by a flower bush ON THE SAME DAY of that "fight"... I just wanted to leave the fight alone and try to make them smile again after awhile.. I said "Hey, look at this pretty flower" And they just stared at me with a very strong glare and said "shut up.." or "We don't care" I didn't cry, yet I teared and my heart was broken.. once again... I just wanted them to have fun!... They were so rude! Seriously what did I do to make them feel that way about me?? It hurt me! I didn't even do anything.. What way I would describe them is bratty and rude.. honestly. What did I do to deserve that... what?.. (Heeey!! I remember when you guys visited my school in Chicago Ill!! Haugan School 4/23/15 :) K.I.N.D, You guys made me realize something special. I remember Lauren and Molly coming to my school, that was awesome..) anyways, I know my story isn't very tragic, no one hurt me from the outside yet on the inside, I was really hurt... I still hurt today, I'll never forget those girls... They ruined a portion of my life.. -

SORRY: I apologize to my friend or probably ex-friend for saying things behind her back. SORRY. - Leslie

:(: We'll I have been bullied by my friend only a couple of times, but thanks for the help of the teachers and principal now she doesn't tell me horrifying stuff. She used to tell me fat and I remember once that she told me that; you see when a tire of a car is full of air she told me to desinflate: I tried to not show my anger or show that im sad or something like that. I know that she was joking around but im still not sure if it was a joke or not. I still talk to her but she doesn't know that what she was doing was bullying so she hasn't said sorry or anything like that because she doesn't know she was doing bullying to me. So I mwasn't really affected by it but it did hurt me (not a lot). But I still remember that day. -

Jenna: Sorry - Jolie

: Sometimes I feel worthless and useless. Last year, a girl called me names behind my back and I believed her. I thought that no one would like me and that I would never fit in. But I have learned that you don't need to fit in. It's better to be yourself than to blend in. There will always be hatersbut you nneed to learn to move past them and stand up for yourself. Even now, I'm still going through hard times, but I know and everyone should know, that no matter what you are going through, there is ALWAYS a light at the end of the tunnel. -

A girl the don't notice: I have been affected by girl against girl crime in more ways than most people know. I had one group of friends that I loved to death, but one day a girl called one of my closest family friend (who is gay) unnatural. I stood up and asked her to stop and tried to be nice and hide my feelings but she kept going with the insults which circulated to me and how bad of a friend I was even though I always stood up for her. What she didn't know was that a different family friend had been struggling with an alcohol addiction that deeply affected me. I would see her and she would tell me how stupid I am or how my mother would never understand me. I was already going through this and the loss of a family member, but to have all my fiends at school turn on me, it was awful. I hated going to school, waking up, and talking to people. My ex-friends would follow me in the halls and say things about me so I could hear, or talk about parties I couldn't go to. The worst thing was, those girls had been my friends since 2nd grade. I trusted them so much and they turned on me so quickly. Even though I hated everyone at school I tried to make them happy and smile so no one has known what Ive felt. After all of this one girl came to me and we became friends. I loved her so much, but I realized one day that she had been telling the other girls about me and she stopped sitting with me at lunch. I sit alone with my thoughts and no one notices me. I cants stop myself from thinking about everything everyone has said to me over the past 6 months and it hurts. It hurts a lot more than most people know. -

NE: You wanted to be my friend. I liked you. You were always kind and generous. I wanted to be cool and accepted. To be cool and accepted I could not be associated with you. You were not cool enough. The people I wanted to be cool for and accepted by turned out not to be cool and accepting. 15 years later I still think of you. You would have been a great friend to have. I'm sorry I never gave us that opportunity. -

Sonia: I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end the bullying. Then not judging people by how they look. People should know by know that they can't just judge people by how they look. They should end this bullying because the kids just don't want to be in this world anymore. - Chicago

Sonia: I feel bad for what I did about judging people by how they are. I should've never judge them by how they are at the first time when they are know to a school. I've started this because since 3rd grade I have been bullied by someone. Then all that was still in my mind about what the girl has done to me. Then I just wanted to apologize so I did. Then that day I felt better for apologizing, and not judging anyone else. Know I don't judge people by how they look, or by how they behave. Even though I don't know someone I just smile back instead of judging. I felt happy by not judging people anymore. -

Myself: I wanted to apologize to myself. I'm sorry I made you feel worthless. I'm so sorry I wanted to be dead. I feel terrible about making you cry yourself to sleep every night. I'm sorry for making you feel like you weren't as pretty or as skinny as the other girls. I wish I could go back and take the pain away. I love you! - Older me.

Amani: I'm sorry for being mean to you I just stand being teased all the time and may be in the future we could forget it move on. - Jacob

Amani: A lot of kids in class my think I'm stupid -

Amani zantoko : A girl in my school was being pick on by her race -

Chloe Miller: I apologize for making you feel that you were anything less than amazing. I picked on you girls in high school or later with my girlfriends because of the way you looked and/or acted. At the time, I thought it made me feel powerful and cool. Now, when I think of the way I treated you, I feel weakness and pain. I wish I could go back and be your friend instead of your enemy. I believe you have already forgiven me, but it's hard to forgive myself. I want to inspire always, and never tear anyone down again. I pledge to spread kindness in my life and the lives of those around me. I have learned from my mistakes but I never got the chance to tell you that I'm sorry, that you are beautiful, and so special. I am now off to spread love, kindness, and beauty around the world in the honor of these girls I wasn't kind to, and in honor of all the girls and boys who were/are picked on, by themselves or others. WE ARE BEAUTIFUL. WE ARE UNIQUE. WE ARE POWERFUL. WE ARE LOVED. WE ARE LOVING. WE ARE LOVE! “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” - Mother Teresa - Alexis, Ally, Allison, Lindsay, anyone else who was affected by my unkind words or actions

Shannon M.: If You Have to Whisper, It is Better Likely Left Unsaid As I sat there with the police officers, My hands were sweaty and shaking. I knew what was in store for me, And my head was just aching. I said I would tell them everything they Needed to know, So as they became quiet I told my story And here it goes. It started with some whispered lies, Which spread from ear to ear. We would keep the hated words a secret, So no one else would hear. Although we knew we hurt her feelings, We really couldn’t care less. Since we had all the friends and fame, While she wallowed in her loneliness. We would show no guilt or sorrow when We yelled at her through the halls. The laughing of all the girls each day Still lingers within the walls. People would ask us why we were so mean Or why we called her names each day. We really had no reason but, It was fun in a strange sort of way. When we did all these cruel things to her, We didn’t think twice of how she felt. I mean, it wasn’t her fault she had no friends, I guess it was just the poor hand she was dealt. Maybe she would go home and cry a lot or maybe she didn’t care at all. But what just happened to this girl I barley knew, Was the worst thing I have ever saw. We would go through our usual routine again, By shoving her and calling her names. Everyone thought we were funny, we didn’t Care if we had to take the blame. Making fun of someone happens in every school, But I guess we took it too far. We would throw stuff at her and scream stuff, too As she waited for her mom’s car. But we had no clue, I swear we didn’t, for what she had planned for the next day. No one noticed she was not in school and No one really cared. We figured she was just sick or maybe even scared. When we sat down for homeroom, we weren’t Ready for what was said. They announced that she had taken her own life And I thought how could she be dead? No one knew how she felt inside or how She took our insults instead, All we knew was that she was gone, And it was entirely our faults. She was so young and innocent, And there is no way to get her back. It would be a really long time Till my life got back on track. Now I live with this guilt, And I doubt it will ever leave. And I heard this saying the other day, That now I truly believe. They say if you have to whisper, It is better likely left unsaid. If I just held in those whispered words, This innocent teenager would not be dead. -

Hermine: I'm 26 years old and I have been betrayed & bullied by my best friend over the two last weeks. I feel heartbroken, humiliated and very sad. I'm already working on truly forgiving her. And I want to take action here in Paris to spread the kindness. Be strong everyone. -

Cassie: In elementary and middle school, I was made fun of for my name Cassie and was called Lassie, like the dog and for being so skinny I was called string bean. I am here to help and support. I hate seeing kids be bullied and all these sad stories of teens committing suicide which has happened to both of my siblings friends. It's so sad to hear and you just wish you could help and talk to someone. Let's keep this movement going and change the world! -

Madison: I pledge to self-reflect before I speak. To often we're quick to make a comment or a joke for the sake of fitting in instead of standing next to one another and recognizing that each person brings something wonderful and unique to the world. We only get one shot at this life, so today, I pledge that I will use this life to remind myself and everyone around me to be KIND to one another! - Canada

Katie: This story is approximately 15 years old. When I was first starting elementary school I wasn't the most popular of girls, but it was OK because I had a loving, equally not cool best friend. She ended up moving, or for whatever reason changing schools. This was the late nineties, so before every tween had a cell, and my best friend and I completely lost touch. By the time 5th or 6th grade rolled around, I had climbed the social ladder and had grown into a cooler and judgmental social group. My lost friend returned to our elementary school, and approached me, excited to see me, and I blew her off. I wouldn't talk to her, I was so cold. I caused her to be embarrassed and hurt, many people saw this happen, and knew we had once been very close. I had made it into the popular group, and I didn't want to go back to hanging out with girls I now viewed as "lesser". I was truly a horrible, heartless, backstabbing little girl. This story still haunts and shames me, and I am so SO sorry. -

chloe : I have lots of friends but some of them are mean to me -

Cheridan Kelly: Dear Pamela, I'm sorry about all the terrible things my "friends" and I said about you in 5th grade. We're in 8th grade now, almost in high school, and you are one of the coolest people I know. You may not be a model or Albert Einstein but you're an incredible trombone player. I'm glad we could get passed all of that and that we're friends now. Love you PJ. - Pamela Jensen

Casey: I pledge to refrain from judging, criticizing, or hurting girls in any way, shape, or form in order to ensure the end of female bullying. - Monroe Township

Casey: I am sorry for unfairly judging any girl before getting the chance to get to know them. It's these judgments that contribute to the majority of insecurities among young girls.I am sorry for making any girl feel as if they are less beautiful than they truly are. -

Casey: During my first semester of college, I was constantly being put down by one of my suite mates. While trying to handle the situation maturely and honestly, things escalated. After being threatened and feeling completely isolated, I decided to take a stand against the situation. I continued to treat the bully with kindness, while making arrangements to get placed into a new suite. Not only do I feel great by refusing to stoop down to her level, but I am finally in a happy and healthy environment. -

Alena: I apologize for giving you false information about your new boyfriend. I was hurt that he left me so quickly for you. I was hurt and scared and I panicked. I knew I wanted to tell you he wasn't right for you but I didn't know how so I made stuff up. You didn't deserve that and he didn't either. I'm happy you guys are happy and I hope you can learn to forgive me. - Mandy

Autumn: I'm sorry for not treating you the way you deserved. I felt crummy about me and I lashed out at you... Yet all you ever did was love me. I'm sorry. - Shayla

Avah: I'm sorry if I hurt anyone because of something I said or did - Anyone I know

Avah: I'm sorry if I ever hurt anyone because of something I said or did - Anyone I know

Jill: I went to a pretty vicious high school, and I remember one day sitting at lunch with my friends and a random kid walked by who we didn't even know, and they all started making comments and laughing at the pants they were wearing on the non-uniform day. I remember in that moment just thinking 'why are you laughing at that person? You don't know her, she hasn't done anything to you'. After that day I decided to just put my time and effort in studies and pretty much stopped hanging around with that group of girls. I'd be nice to them if I saw them, but I realized that I spent so many years of listening to their negativity about other people and me sitting there and not defending the person made me as bad as them. I'm 22 now, and I have the best group of girlfriends who are more like sisters. There isn't any drama, if we ever have an issue we discuss it calmly and rationally, apologize, hug it out and move on. We don't rag on each other, we don't gossip about each other, if we say something about one friend it's only ever out of concern or trying to clear something up, or it's to talk about how much we adore her. In high school I could have never imagined having such a trusting, diverse and wonderful group of girls in my life. I am so blessed and happy that I have found these sisters for life. -

Lacey: I pledge to be the kindest person I can be at all times. I will make everyone feel welcome and treat them as my best friend. - Alabaster

Grace: My best friend and I had gotten in an argument because she was leaving me out of our "group". I had tried just talking about it but it wasn't working...I felt like there was nobody left to be friends with. Everyone in my school has their own clique and I had just been kicked out of mine. I was left alone and felt like there was no place to fit in. I still feel this way but have learned to just be alone. I don't really have any true friends left and I am hopeless. -

viona: sorry milly, i said something that wasn't quite 100% sure about you. i said what i saw, and i just assume that you're not doing the math task. i'm sorry - milly

Julia: I'm sorry for bullying you the way that I was bullied - Sarah

Jordan: I PLEDGE to be confident and show everyone the real me until its too late! :) - Pemberton

Jordan: I sorry for being so quiet and pushing you away when we had the chance to be friends. - He: Brandon

Jordan: Back in 5th grade I, texted my friend some pretty harsh things when we were both going through a bad time. It was back in forth, texting the unthinkable words to my best friend, that I never thought I would say. After it was over, I just wanted to forget about it, but word spread to our friends and they kept telling me it was cyber bullying, and I knew it wasn't. It was just a very intense argument and we both said things we shouldn't have. Being me I let the whole "cyber bully " comment get to my head and I felt even deeper in the dark. Not having my best friend for a while was hard and I couldn't take it so I apologized and she apologized. Yes, I got my bestie back, but ever since then we have never been the same. We went our separate ways, found other amazing people and now we are just the people that wave and say, "HI" in the hallway. -

Jennifer: I pledge to spread kindness and to refrain from participating in spreading rumors. I will respect my school community and be truthful in all situations. - Holbrook

Joy: I pledge that I will try my hardest not to ever insult anyone or gossip about anyone because I know how it feels. I will raise others up not put them down - Exeter

Joy: I'm sorry for insulting you as a joke all the time through high school, I meant it light heartedly but insults should never be said and I wasn't aware that I was hurting you. - Danielle

Joy: I was bullied all though high school. I was unpopular and would always hear comments on my appearance, personality and gossip, usually untrue and negative. This forced me into being very uncomfortable in my own skin and suffer from social anxiety. It felt like everyone in my school hated me for no reason and I felt inferior to everyone else. -

Colleen Binney: By taking the Kind Pledge, I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. - Hudson, FL

jessica: I'm sorry I was such a bully in elementary school. I should have remembered how it felt and stopped. Please forgive me. - -

Jessica Klingler: Ever since kindergarten, I have been bullied by so many. First, I was bullied for a large scar on my forehead. Then, that I always hung out with boys, and then because I was shy and cried a lot. After a while, I became a bully. I didn't call it that, but it was what it was. In middle school, I mellowed out, but I am still suffering emotional deficiencies -like I have issues with trust, I don't share my emotions with anyone, no matter what, and I am afraid to cry in front of people because I am afraid of being laughed at and mocked- because of how I was treated, and others I had mistreated are bullies now, all because of me. I can never reverse what I did, but I can stop others from making the same mistake. -

Julie: I pledge to be kinder to everyone, including myself. At the end of the day, when I am not thinking kind thoughts about other girls and women, it is because I am not thinking and feeling kind thoughts towards myself. We are all imperfect; that is the beauty of being alive and being human! We all deserve to feel worthy of love, joy, and kindness, and I plan on spreading this love, joy, and kindness every day that I am lucky enough to be a part of this beautifully flawed world of ours. -

Kaitlyn: I am tired of talking shit about other people. This is not who I want to be. -

Jessica: I pledge to always be kind and understanding and to accept everyone for who they are. - Nederland

Jessica: I'm sorry I took you for granted. I love you so much. - Madison

Jessica: I was influenced by the people who bullied me, i let myself think that just because they were rude, they were popular. i treated the only friend i had badly because i thought it was how you showed people you cared, but she still always stuck by me. She is my first friend and i will always love her. -

Orla: I always felt isolated in school, it all began when girls would run away from me in the playground. Growing up I have witnessed girls bringing other girls down, we should be helping eachother grow stronger. Many girls don't talk to me and when they do it is because I can benefit them in some way. There is one girl that always body shamed and name called, she was an ugly person inside and didn't have a care for the people she was hurting. It went so far that she would spread false gossip and eventually turned my only friends against me, joining her in making me feel small. Today i am ignored daily and receive comments on how I am not worthy of friends and deserve to be lonely. I feel so small and I rarely leave the house to be social but I am proud of myself for not retaliating and taking the moral high ground but I am not proud of how I did nothing while they walked all over me. It will take me a while to pick myself up and rebuild but I would like to thank them for helping me gain two friends who have had similar experiences. We can find strength in knowing we are not alone. I know now that I was not the problem but this girl's words and actions have had a significant impact on my mental health: I feel worthless and that my life doesn't matter, I would self harm so I could cope with everything in my head, and I became delusional by imagining scenarios at school, I would believe them to be true and I avoided attending school to avoid the situations becoming a reality . Girls need to realise the impact of words and the consequences of their actions, if you consider the damage they would cause you would you say or do those to others? Girls need to stand up and fight because if we sit and do nothing the problem will not disappear. I will always be kind and think before I speak because I don't want anyone to feel the way I have for years. -

Ailani Toledo: I pledge to become a better person by being kinder to people. Just like at then assembly, if you don't having something to say, don't say it. - San Diego, California

Ailani Toledo: I am new to my new school. I have been bullied and had problems at home. I had girls telling other girls when I was missing that I was missing because I had killed myself. I was called ugly, and anorexic just because I was skinny. People were spreading rumors that I had sent some notes to some guy and had a major crush on him. So this led to me cutting myself. I was so confused because I had never been treated this way before. All I really want to ask people is to PLEASE be kinder to people. I learned why people hate themselves and try to commit suicide. One act of kindness can help make somebody's day. So please act kinder! :) -

Niquèlle: I pledge to try my hardest to live a life that I am 100% proud of, being sweet and kind to everyone I meet, to not gossip, to not . I pledge to give everyone a second chance, and to not judge people by what other people say about them, to give them a full shot. I pledge to do what Jesus would do. - San Luis Obispo

Jessica M: I was bullied over Instagram over the summer because I "posted too many pictures" of my boyfriend and I. So many people were mean to me and their comments will always stick with me because they really hurt and I don't know to this day that I still forgive them, but now that I've learned so much about kindness (my school watched the kind campaign doc. today) I think I do forgive them. I pledge to always stand up for people. especially during cyber bullying. -

julia: im sorry for not taking your advice when you give it. - heather

Tyon : I'm sorry for starting petty fights with my friends and being prideful instead of just forgiving them or taking the initiative to apologize when I was in the wrong -

Mariangela Vogliotti: I'm truly sorry for saying never to be your friend, i'm sorry for spreading rumors about you, i'm sorry for me fighting over Samantha, I hope you at least consider looking at me for what I did was truly cruel. I never said a word about this to my family or friends for it crushed me. Lastly, i'm sorry for breaking you when you thought all was good. So many things happen in my life, yet i always recall that time and as I left Ventura for a new life, i started to consider it was mostly my fault. I'm sorry and i can't say it enough. - Natalie Ortiz

issbah khowaja: i want to encouge people to not be mean and stand up for themselves if being bullied -

Meredith H.: I pledge to stop female bullying and to be kind because I can and because it feels better than hate. I will work on not talking about others behind their backs and saying mean comments. I unite with the rest of you to make a happier world of girls :) - Saratoga Springs, NY

Meredith: I want to apologize for doing things to you that I wouldn't want someone to do to me. For talking behind your back and for changing our schedule to avoid you. It is really hard with the influence of other people, but that does not mean that I should do anything unkind to you. I am really sorry. - Kayla

Meredith H.: Most of my friends that I have had up until now have been really great girls but also really mean at the same time. I let these girls turn me into something I wasn't, and I also let them walk all over me just so that we could stay friends. I have always been conflicted about standing up for myself and not giving in to the temptation of gossip and hate against other girls, it has been really hard since that is what some of my closest friends have always done. I am ready to do what is right and always be kind. -

Madison: Hi I'm Madison I'm in my 8th grade year at another new school.& let me tell you it's been hard! I always do anything to be accepted even if it comes with me being someone i'm not. This year i guess you could say i started out with the wrong group. I normally let people walk all over me & tell me how horrible of a person i am but this year i got with a group who helped me "fix myself" the wrong way! The group i hung out with was always in drama with other girls and were always treating girls in the worst ways , posting pictures on instagram to make them feel bad , calling them names & just making their life at school terrible then i realized i'm treating someone i hated being treated & i'm treating them the way i was treated. i just want to now help others become kind & i want to help make other happy! -

Kelly: As a teacher at Imagine North Manatee, a huge part of my teaching philosophy is educating the whole child. I believe that it is not only my job to teach these children the core standards, but to help facilitate them in understanding what it means to responsible member of our community.

Lindsay: I was bullied all through high school. I would walk in and hear girls gossiping about me. When facebook had this app called 'honesty box' I would get piles and piles of harsh comments. I remember this one day I got one from a girl at school and it said 'you look like a burn victim. every body at school talks about it.' I remember my heart sinking into my chest. I didn't understand why I was being called this. I didn't want to go to school, I wanted to sit in my bedroom and just stay there forever. I didn't want to show my face at school because I could hear the whispering. To this day; I will remember this for the rest of my life. Fortunately, I am much stronger today & I see this as someone being insecure within themselves and taking it out on me. Today; I say "how dare you" to using 'burn victim' as a negative word to tear someone down. There are plenty people who have survived fires & have to deal with that everyday. I graduated high school 5 years ago. Why is bullying still happening? You guys are doing a great thing helping to change that! -

Kelsey R.: By taking the Kind Pledge, I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. And all bullying. It stops here. - Beckley

Kelsey: While I was made fun of and given a hard time in middle school and half of high school there were kids around me who had it worse than me and I would see the way they were being treated and wanted to say something to them to make them feel better or stick up for them but I was always too scared or felt like I wasn't "somebody" enough to help them. I want to apologize for being scared and not helping them when I know they needed it or a simple KIND word could have changed their day. I hope they have made it as far as I have. - The affected

Kelsey R.: My name is Kelsey Rudd. I am a 23 year old college student who is now loving life after having some rough early teenage years, and well all of my teenage years. As soon as I got to middle school I was alienated from the girls in my school. I was a major, major tomboy and animal lover and would rather spend my time with animals and in the woods than with people in school. I was also a major late bloomer while everyone was already maturing physically ahead of me. I would occasionally cut myself, nothing major, just enough to feel the pain but relieve the pain at the same time you know? I DO NOT SUPPORT ANYONE WHO DOES THIS AND IF YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING IT DO NOT!! Go workout, read,loose yourself in nature and the serenity, there are much better alternatives and as painful as something seems at the time it always gets better, I have learned this and would love to go back and tell my 13-15 year old self this. My sister was 2 years younger than me and by the time I got to 9th grade things were slightly improving for me but it was her first year in middle school and she matured early, physically and mentally and was very pretty so the other girls she went to school with felt jealous and bullied her to no end and made her come home crying about herself to the point she eventually had to transfer schools where everything improved for her. She used to cut herself also which regrettably she learned from me. But my our late teens we had everything figured out mentally and emotionally and now, me being 23 and her 21 we are happier and healthier than ever, we workout regularly, try to eat right, and try to support other people in tough situations. We support causes like this because we know, we have been there. I am minoring in psychology in hopes to obtain a career where I can work closely with causes like this. No matter HOW BAD something seems at the time, I promise you it gets better, it always gets better and it's really a beautiful life. -

Abigail: Hi I'm 13 I have been bullied sins the 1st grad. I moved to a new school about every year I'm different from others I have dislexea and I also have diabeties. I am bullied every day for not being able to read and for being fat or just different. Last year I even got so sad I was thinking about killing myself. But one of the girls I met later helped me though it. This year it is getting worst one girl even thretened my life but I'm getting though it one step at a time with my friend. I can go on for ever but I think thats enough......... Bye ???????????????????????????? -

aisha: I used to be bullied. -

farah qamilia bt azli farid: i love my family and matty braps -

Ester Ndoen: Hi, I'm so excited to be here, because I just found out a right place to share my own story. I'm 17 years old. I've been bullied since I was 5 or 6 until right now. They were so racist because I'm a tanned-skin girl. And, I lived in a town where people who always think that tan and black girl is ugly, stupid, not suited with this color or that color, and not open-minded. I was so shy, I didn't have many friends in my life. So, when I was 12, there were so many pale skin girl who hated me, because I was good at English and Physics, especially because of my skin color. They were so jealous to me and didn't want me. I didn't remember too much, I came to class, and the whole class were so quiet and acted like I wasn't existed. I asked them, they weren't answered me. I felt like a dork. It killed me inside, and it's hard to forgot. Until now, those kinds of people still existed in my class. I'm so sick of those shit they gave to me. I just wanna graduated soon, you know. Umm.. Have you ever felt being unwanted for like 12 years until right now?? I've been through all that damn things. Sometimes, I'm kind of want to move out of my school and this town. But, there are 5 months only until I graduated from school. I told my teacher, bus she gave up and asked me to keep patient. Everyday, I put a smile on my face to them, pretending that I'm okay, you couldn't ruined me. But, I'm dying inside. I was like ":God, Do I have born to being bullied?" I was just cried over my bed or in the corner of my bathroom. My parents didn't know that everyday, at school, I had to passed those hard times. I just didn't want them to worried about me, so I said "School is awesome, I met a lot of people, they were kind and funny, I loved them." It was the biggest lie ever. But, with all of my kind of experiences, it makes me stronger, tougher, and more brave to passed the next day. Yeah, so this is my story. I told you, don't let them stole your dream. If they always say bad thing about you. Just say "Oh, get over it and pushed it off." What's yours?? -

Maggie: I pledge to be a trustworthy person, and stand up for people who need help. Even if the person who needs help is me. I will try to be more outgoing (try), and I will always try to be a helpful and loving person - Maine

Emma : I pledge to be a faithful friend. I pledge to let someone know if I have a problem with them instead of talking behind their backs. I pledge to be honest. I pledge to be KIND. - Everyone

Emma : I apologize to any friend of mine that I've been mean to (or any girl in general). I'm sorry for talking about others and criticizing them behind their backs. I have been a victim of bullying and I feel awful for doing to others what I knew made me feel awful. And lastly, Irene, I am sorry for giving up on our friendship when you moved away and I am sorry for criticizing you without a serious reason. - Anyone I've been mean to

Emma: Since kindergarten (yes, even kindergarten) I have been made fun of because of my looks, my humor, my ideas and what not. However, growing up this whole thing started fading away.. (or so I thought). Kids tell you whatever they want in your face, straight up. Teenagers though, and of course mainly girls (including myself) tend to do something worse; they talk about you behind your back, they criticize you, they make fun of you if you don't look or dress a certain way, they spread rumors about you without a good reason. I admit that I have done most of these horrible things to others. I haven't realized until now how awful this is. -

Irina : Throughout my school career, I was always teased by other girls about my weight, looks, and ideas. I was never the pretty brunette with perfect teeth, eyes, skin, and hair. Mainly, this happened at my first high school. But then I moved, and had to transfer. A few months after transferring, I was sitting on a bench by the drama room and a girl came out and invited me inside. She said she had seen me around before but was too shy to talk to me because she felt I was too pretty to be her friend. It was at the moment that I had realized that the girl who tortured me in my first school, were completely wrong. Sure, I was never thin, but I was always healthy. I may have never had perfect vision and teeth, but I loved wearing my glasses. These so-called imperfections are what make us girls who we are. Never do change yourself because someone else doesn't like a particular trait about you. If you EVER want to change, do it for yourself :) because at the end of the day, you're the one that has to live with these changes. -

Victoria : I want to say this to your face at some point, but I'm doing it here first to find the courage to do so and the right words. We were great friends, and I was going through a rough time friend wise, mostly because I caused my own drama, and I really leaned on your shoulder. I wanted a best friend and in a way we were, but you were already best friends with girls, who I instantly judged because I was jealous of them. Towards the end of our friendship, I was just so wrapped up in want I wanted that I didn't realize, you weren't interested in the same things or that we were growing apart, which is fine; things like that tend to happen when middle school ends. I tried to tell you who to be friends with and made you choose, them or me. It wasn't my place at all, and I'm so very sorry. I became clinging and annoying, and I can't apologize enough. I hope you're loving life and happy! - Lydia

Charlotte Mixon Lanier: I pledge to be a faithful friend. I want to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. I also pledge to try and mentor young women and teach them by example what it is like to be strong, loyal, and loving. - Boise, ID

Charlotte L.: I am sorry that I cheated with my friend's boyfriend. It hurt our friendship and I have never reconnected with her. What a painful lesson. -

Chloe: I pledge not to push girls away because I feel intimidated by them, I pledge to unite with girls, not against them. - Peterborough

Jeenie-Leigh: My pledge is to start speaking out. I had friends before I became ill. Now, I don't have friends. I was in a mental health hospital for 5 months and before that in and out of the general hospital for suicide attempts/alcohol poisoning etc. In a way it was kind of my own fault, as I shut everyone out and became scared of everyone. So, my pledge is to start speaking out, demonstrating how I'm not dangerous and hopefully encourage others to speak out too. There is so much judgement out there, and I am not going to judge anyone by their actions etc. . I hope to one day make someone else who went through similar things smile and realise they're worth more than the people who tell them otherwise:) - Anglesey, Wales, UK

Chloe O' Callaghan: I had just finished getting help for my anxiety problems when a short while after, I had got into a predicament with a girl I used to be friends to. She would make feel anxious to the point where my stomach was queasy. This was because I had spoken to her mother at the door and told her that I was scared of her when it came to alcohol. Her mother didn't say anything but told her soon after as I got a call from her expressing how insulted she was. We did sort it out on the outside but not from the inside - My anxiety begged to differ. I decided to let her go but it was also over the phone. I still feel tortured to this day over it because there is a lot unsaid and my crush was used as an excuse to fuse my vulnerability. That's not cool!!! What I'm trying to say is is that I knew that talking behind her back was wrong and I wish my anxiety/personal problems didn't get in the way of our friendship. -

Sarah Colagrossi: I transferred to 3 different high schools in order to try and fit in somewhere. It never worked. They all still called me big nose and ugly. But in the end I know myself better than those bullies ever will and I am in college studying non-profit organizations to contribute and stop violence and bullying like this absolutely phenomenal campaign. -

Lisa Gonzalez: I am a 50 year old woman I met Pandora Vanderpump, she told me about your site. I wanted to share my story as it relates to what is happening today and in my school age years no one talked about being bullied by another girl. I was a teenager it was 1975 I was in the 9th grade the girl who bullied me was in the 12th grade I was very shy in school. I had fought several times because of racial discrimination. I would be called, ugly, fat and a spic in the hallways. As I opened my locker this girl would slamm it shut. . She and her cronies would make it impossible for me to go to the bathroom . I was afraid but knew I had to fight this person to make her stop. i tried to talk to her 3 x it just kept getting worse and worse. At one point I did not want to attend school . The day came and it was time to confront her. When I did confront her it did not go well and we ended up fighting . My adrenaline was shooting through my veins and I beat the girl so badly she had to go to the hospital. After that I had to bring a chain link to school with a lock . Only because her friends were threatening me . This lead to my suspension for a week of school work. This led to a severe complex in school . I never signed up for anything. I was afraid all the time. I walked to school because I was harassed on the bus . I could not wait for school to end. I prayed for the day of graduation so I could leave. The only problem was the scars stayed with me for a long time . I could not work through my anxieties and needed help . What I want the world to know is that bullying young girls, girls that are younger than yourself , shy, scared , or insecure girls is a crime. You are changing the way a person's psychological well being . This type of harassment is a sin and a crime and if you are doing it. Or being provoked to doing this please stop and think . What you do in life has a consequence and it just does not go away. If you are doing something that is cruel stop just stop . -

Louise: I'm sorry for all the things that I said to you. I am sorry for getting angry and defensive and not understanding what you were going through. - Carly

Annie: From the ages of five, to eighteen I was badly bullied by girls at school. They encouraged each other and even the boys to bully physically and mentally. I can't bare to think about it to this day and as a result, I suffered from anorexia and depression. Even now at 26, the same girls look down at me and always have something bad or catty to say. They don't realise the consequences bullying can have upon another. Girls should be sticking together as a sisterhood, yet tragically, girls can be worse than boys so we must educate girls to be kind. -

Rose: I was diagnosed with skin cancer at 15yrs pld. I am now 22. So happy it was found in time before it got worse. I went through months of chemo and radiation. I lost a lot of hair through my journey that unfortunately won't grow back. And thanks to my hair loss my hairline has recorded which cause me to have a "5head". Up 'til around my 19 birthday I decided to accept this change; to me it is a sign of my fight and my victory. I decided I didn't have to hide my forehead behind bangs, but once I got rid of my bangs comments began with "do you have a tumor growing on your head?" "You should have kept your bangs. You look better that way." I was also once in a confrontation with a girl who continued with hurtful comments and once face to face she grabbed a chunk of my hair on my hairline and pulled it right off. I am a fairly strong person and I will always be proud of my fight against cancer, but others might not take this bullying so lightly which sadly leads to self harming or suicide. Please. Be kind. Always be kind. -

Autumn: I pledge to not be so catty around girls and get along with them. I will be kind and not push them away. - WALES

Autumn: I got bullied by two girls back when I was in school, they picked on me because I had different groups of friends, I got beaten up by them twice, one of the girls done it just for a fag. I was too scared to come to school. I stayed off for over a month until the girls got suspended, but I would not go down my local shop/park incase they were out. -

Emily : I pledge to try my best to stop saying hurtful things and not make jokes at other's expense. In order to grow stronger and increase our power as women we need to stick together and stop bringing each other down. - Philadelphia

Jazmin Ortiz: We should all just stop bullying. We shouldn't do it anymore. I hate so much! If you guys have problems deal with it at home or with a therapist or a counselor. Not with people you might not know at all or have been friends with since Elementary school.I actually would love to help girls to stop bullying everyone. I want to have an anti bullying school,neighborhood, city, community, state, continent, and around the whole world. So help stop I! I pledge to be kind and Never Bully ever again!!! - Woodbridge, VA

Jennifer Ortega: I'm sorry to most of you girls that I called insensitive bitches because I thought that you guys were assholes. I also said in my head that you guys think you guys are popular, cool, and hot. So SORRY ESPECIALLY ONE GIRL! - Juliana Molina

Jennifer Ortega: I've been bullied. I'm really shy and I actually know girls and boys talk about me. They think I won't do anything about, but I will when they tell me right in my face. They also say that I'm fat. I know I am but shouldn't make me feel more bad about my weight. -

Moncler Donna: Moncler Jackets are really favorite season. Moncler is a brand such as online and wholesale distributor. And not many people bear in mind now that in the beginning of well-known company was expedition in Canada in new clothing. Moncler Donna - Moncler Donna

Cam: I am making a commitment to stop bulking others and not judge a book by its cover:) - Estes park

Cam: I'm very sorry for all the mean thing I've said about you now I believe that you are a beautiful person and you deserve to live on this amazing world God made for You and Me! - Daffney sam and jen and all the other girls that are my best friends now

Cameron Rebekkah Ostrich: When I first came to my public school I was the popular one I would feel very confident about the way I looked and how girls thought about them selfs so I would try to make others fell bad about them selves and calling them ugly and all. And now those girls are very beautiful and I felt really bad. -

Alejandra : I've been called a lot of names and I tried to change myself but it is hard, then I was like why would I change me that will not be me? -

Bria Brown: I've been having a difficult time lately... My friends are always so much more perfect than me, and it doesn't help with my depression. I'm never good enough. I'm never the best. I've been cutting for a long time and I keep relapsing, even with my parents giving me body checks. I have bulimia and I don't know how to get over it. I can't quit puking up my meals. I'm tired of living and I can't find the will to keep going. I don't know why I did this, I guess I just need to get it off my chest. Thanks for reading... -

kaci: I've been a bully to people by judging them -

Catrina: Growing up, elementary school was never very easy for me. I was smaller than all the other girls, I wore glasses and got a little chubby in the seventh grade. I was teased for these so called "imperfections" and it effected my self esteem for most of my life. It was not until my early years in college that I finally realized that my "imperfections" were actually the reasons for my individuality and beauty. Today, I look at girls and women in contrast to what the media likes to show. There is no "perfect" body or rules to follow in order to be accepted as beautiful. What makes you different is exactly what makes you beautiful. I find beauty in these "imperfections". I respect women and girls who are happy with themselves no matter what our society forces us to think about body image. You are beautiful! never ever forget! xoxo -

Sage: I said something mean to a girl because I was jealous because I felt like in PE I had done my push ups right and she had gotten more than me because she had done them the wrong way, so I said something mean about her. -

Alex W: I've been affected my being called names, and I've had rumors started about me. Someone once started a rumor that I wanted to kill myself that made me want to kill myself. I've been called almost every name imaginable even in different languages. It really hurts me to know that people think so lowly about me. -

Rayan: Now every time I go to my friends they ignore each other only my wish is to help me! -

Raquel: Last year I went to camp and requested my best friend to be in my bunk. She was, but by the end of camp she was not my best friend anymore. I am not going to get into specifics but they called me names, took my stuff, spread rumors, discluded me, and more.. I tried telling an adult but they could not do anything then. But thankfully, now they are banned from that camp for breaking the rules and bullying me. The last thing I have to say is that the kind campaign recently came to my school and showed us the documentary. It changed my life and my relation ship with some others for the better. Now, my past foe is my greatest friend again(not the one from camp) and I am happy :) hank you Kind campaign for giving me the courage and a voice to stand up and say that I am not going to take this! -

Lauren Schouten: Like most girls growing up, fitting in was the most important thing to me. I played sports all my childhood and throughout my high school career. I have always been different. I am an artist now attending Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and I have been corky and expressive my entire life. I joined a premiere lacrosse team in Summer 2009. It was a huge struggle to go to those practices every week knowing that the girls would throw their water at me and forcefully push me down. To my knowledge, the bullying took place just because I was different than them and didn't conform to who they were. The coach didn't even notice until one day another player pushed me down in plain daylight, and emptied her gatorade bottle on my head. I stood up and didn't say anything. Even when the coach noticed, she didn't seem to do anything to help me. I finished off the season, and then I quit the team. I felt that no one really cared that I was apart of the team, and obviously I had no friends to come out of it. I received an apology from one of the girls who bullied me about a year later at another friends birthday party. She said that she was just trying to fit in and that she knew what she did was wrong. I accepted her apology, but those experiences during that summer are something that I will take with me the rest of my life. -

your bff: I apologize for all the times I talked about you behind your back. I don't mean for it to hurt you, I only want the best for you. You are such a good friend to me and I want to be just the same to you. I pledge to be the best person I can be and to be more kind to everyone around me. I love you so much and hope we will be friends for a very long time. I'm sorry if I ever hurt you. - Bryanna

Camila Kauer: I pledge to always offer a smile, to girls and boys who I may not even know because everybody wants to feel loved. I pledge to try my hardest to never upset someone intentionally but instead to make them feel valued and special. -

Laura : I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. - Canberra

MEGHAN: i pledge that every girl will believe in who they are and not change for any girl or guy that wants you to change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -

MEGHAN: i had a friend that i have known since kindergarten. i thought that she was always there for me. but i was wrong. i hope i am not the only one who has had this problem. this girl and i used to be best friends and now we are barely aquatints. she has back stabbed me sooooo many time i don't even know. i solved this problem by telling her to knock it off and told her off but apparently she doesn't care because she keeps doing it. -

MEGHAN: You know i have watched things happen when they shouldn't. i think that people mostly girls should honor who they are instead of changing for somebody else, like a boyfriend or these popular girls that want you to change. That isn't right because no body should control you for who you are. i have been waiting to say this forever and specially online. i hope somebody will take this advice and actually use them. i love these kind of people who stand up for who they are and stand up for other people or just girls. -

Alicia: I pledge to be a kinder person, and not judge anyone anymore. - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Alicia: Dear Young Alicia, I am so sorry for making you feel so insecure in your middle school years. It was a tough time changing schools and all you wanted was friends but by letting other girls tell you what's what and becoming someone you weren't and putting on a good face throughout the day but crying by night, it wasn't you. I am so glad you got out of that horrible phase and now you are happy with yourself and everything but you and I both have to work on being less sensitive and not caring so much about what people say. Listen to your heart, listen to Mom and most importantly, listen to you. Alicia, You're a beautiful girl!! I love you!! Older, Alicia - Alicia

Isabel Hernandez: I want to Apologize to my best friend Katherine for letting you take the bullets while being in the middle of the whole 7th 8th grade thing with Tiffany. I also want to apologize to Tiffany for responding to your angry messages with more anger and negativity. It wasn't nice and if we talked about it we could have probably still have been friends. All of us. - Katherine and Tiffany

Isabel Hernandez: I had a best friend since 6th grade (though we met in 3rd grade) and soon we added a new best friend in 7th. I really liked the fact that it was three instead of two, it gave us another person to trust. Her name was Tiffany and she was the athletic one in the group, Katherine was the smart one, and I was the video game geek. We were all different but we all shared anime and fantasy as a common interest. After a couple months went by I noticed that I barley got to hang out with them or Kat even. I started to make more plans with Kat but she declined most of them due to hanging out with Tiffany, it felt weird to ask if I could go so I didn't. Soon I asked her about it and she was telling me how she had a weird fear planted in her by Tiffany due to her bossy attitude, I tried my best to help her and that's when Tiffany and I stopped talking. Katherine was being peer pressured into staying away from me. This is where things got a little crazy, Kat and I had a volunteer job and Tiffany told Kat she was going to come to our job and fight me. I wasn't scared I gladly took the challenge, although nothing happened I talked to Kat about everything and we both agreed to not speak to her again. She was possessive of Kat and I felt bad because she had to be the one to hear all the negativity about me and then tell me. I wish I could have just took things into my own hands instead of having her be in the middle. -

.: I was bullied in 5th grade, and still am in middle school. I was called anorexic, attention seeker,..etc. -

Chloe: Im in 5th grade and theres a lot of gossip that i did these two really horrible things, but didn't do them and that day some really bad things had happened. I cried so long and so hard my eyes were burning. Sometimes girls will do really mean things, and it hurts others VERY badly, and if your one of those girls i have been affected, and i wont let it hurt my friends and you should stop and help others. Some people are affected more than others and it can hurt, ALOT. So don't be mean, help others. Please, those girls need you. -

B.: Im sorry for not taking your presentation as seriously as I should've, I wish I would have had the courage to participate and contribute - Lauren & Molly

Abby L: When I was in the 5th grade, two girls came up to me and asked me how often I washed my hair. I told them a couple times a month. So what? I don't need to wash my hair every other day. They looked shocked when I told them and walked away giggling. I told myself to forget about it, but later I wondered if it was a significant factor of being liked. I now wash my hair every couple of days because of what they said and am now paranoid about if my hair looks ok, if someone will look at it funny. It was one of the first times I was bullied and it made me so much more self conscience about how I looked. Now, even if I'm not going anywhere, I worry about how I look even though they asked e something trivial. -

Abby L: Me being bullied, I can't name any specific people. There were a few here and there, but most of the hurt bullying caused was self provoked. I bully myself, I am my own monster. Its terrible, but true. A whole different kind of bullying. But with this, there is no one to step in and stop it because no one hears it when you walk down the halls. It is in your head, eating away at your self esteem and self confidence, so at one point, you are a unstable, insecure person behind a mask. Bullying girl vs girl is so terrible, and part of it is a girl inside all of us that points out that the bullies are right. What is wrong with you? Why aren't you socially accepted like everyone else? Why can't you talk to boys and make new friends easily like everyone else? And then that voice convinces you and you ask the same questions, but say "Why can't I?" instead. Thats my problem. When someone compliments me, I have trouble taking it in, because I've told myself so many times that I'm not what the compliment says. I tell myself these things based on the media, other girls, what I hear, and things I come up all my own. Why do I torture myself? I've gone so far as to plan my suicide multiple times. I know this isn't what the kind campaign talks about, but it is a girl against a girl, it just happens to be a girl against herself. -

I am sorry that I am still this way - Myself

Caroline: I wanted to apologize to myself for getting myself into girl drama. And I hope now that hearing Lauren and Molly I will be able to fix my mistakes and learn to be a kind hearted person. I am sorry for everything I have done to anyone. - Caroline

T: I have grown up in a dysfunctional family, that has had its problems. These problems have affected me and who I am today & it is hard. What I have been through growing up has affected me a whole lot, and when people call me a b*tch & an attention seeker, and pathetic maybe I do need some attention and maybe I came off in a bad way because I was not able to take what was going on at home. People need to think before they speak, and get the back story before they judge. -

laney: hi my name is laney, i was bullied. and now i am going to tell you my story. i was bullied at my school. i was called an "art geek",they would color on me in class id try to stop them but they kept doing it,i was called "fat", "ugly". i was told i didn't have a purpose, i should just kill myself if i did the said the world would be a better place. i was insecure i stopped eating i was working out more my grades were getting lower and lower. and i just let them take me over and control my life and its been that way for a while now. but when kind campaign came to my school on november 13, 2012 it changed my life i went up to molly and told her my story and she told me that you can just forget they exist and i did that today and for the rest of the day and from now on my life will change. and i will stand up for other girls one girl can change the world -

Elle : I have been bullied sense I was in 5th grade but in 6th grade 3 girls Locked me in a bath room, called me fat, ugly, stupid, and unimportant. Ever sense then my life has changed for the worse because I'm afraid to let anyone in and won't let anyone love me because I'm afraid if I do then they'll just stand me in the back like those 3 girls did. Those girls didn't just call me names or lock me in a bathroom. Those girls took away my confidence, strength and made me feel worthless. As a result to that I became anorexic, depressed and I the worst part is that I thought about killing myself -

Alexis: I am truly sorry for talking back to you and hurting your feelings. (I am drawing a masterwork like everybody else.) (I don't have any brown... could I use it?" (Noooooooooooooooo! You say.) (Please?) (Nooo Alexis!") (Pretty please?" (NO.) (THATS IT! I'M NOT BEING NICE ANYMORE!!! I NEED THE BROWN FOR THE HAIR!" I say.) (A glummad look on your face.) I'm very sorry. - Kaylynn

Alexis: I had been bullied. But I realized this girl is'nt a real bully. She follows directions, but she it a little too strict. So for now, she acts respectful to me, though she is respectful to everybody. According to her, I feel pretty weird when she talks to me. For example, I know her a lot, but i'm acting like she is a boy that likes me. I hope she will be my friend as soon as possible! -

Shandi Mccutcheon : My whole life I have been bullied, but recently it has gotten worse. I know longer have any friends do to a boy who does not even want me . My mom is my only friend and unfortunately she has cancer and is so sick I could lose her at anytime -

Uma Jay Kerkar: So in elementary school I had only one friend, Kayla Carrera. I was very little so I didn't really pay attention or care about having so many friends and being "popular." Kayla and I have been very close friends since kindergarten and she was like a sister to me. Actually, me and her used to pretend like we were blood related sisters. We were always in a good mood and laughing and playing together. We grew up together and went to the same school all up until high school. I always knew I could tell her everything that was important. She would tell me all right from wrong. She understood me. All through elementary school, I was bullied. People pushed me, punched me in the arm, would throw my things, call me names, and make fun of me because of how I looked or dressed. I never liked going to school but all I knew was I had to go and I knew I'd see Kayla. She'd stand up for me sometimes which always made me feel better because I knew I had a good friend. Then, middle school came. I tried to dress "cooler" and talk and act differently just so I could get some more attention because I knew everyone would have a bunch of friends. I was very scared and shy in the first month or so of sixth grade but I soon got over it. I made new friends and dressed "in style", too. Sixth and seventh grade went by fast and no harm was done but then eight grade came and it was a complete disaster. In eight grade, it started out OK. Soon, a seventh grader, Jesse Wilson, came along and said he liked me then he loved me and I fell into that trap. Plus, I should have known that it was all fake and a waste of my time but I didn't think straight. I thought I knew how to take care of myself all on my own. I learnt that the hard way. Jesse was in a "game" with other girls. They told him to date me then dump me then hit on my girlfriends and get me mad. That worked. I definitely got mad. I was mad and sad and I didn't really know how to react to all this. That lasted from September to early November. Around my birthday in December, a new guy, Oliver Forseth, came to my history class and he became my new partner. Once we had to do a project together so we exchanged phone numbers.He would call me at-least 15 times a day and it wasn't even for the project. The first few days I would pick up and we would have small talk. One day he handed me a note in class saying, "I really really like you. You are really pretty and hot and I have never had a girlfriend before so i don't know what else to say." I thought it was kind of cute but I didn't like "like" him back and I only wanted to be friends. Then he handed me another note five minutes after he handed me the first one. it said, "I know what I want to say actually: Your ass is so sexy and you have the best body and I want to do lots of 'things' with you." That freaked me out. I didn't talk to him for days but then I knew he was still checking me out and I just wanted to tell him to back off. I did and he didn't like it. I still had to talk to him but we only talked about the project. One day I started dating this guy named Allen Melendez. As soon as Oliver found out, he got really mad at me and never picked up my phone calls and he purposely did really bad on our project and made me look bad because of that. I started realizing that there is so much drama that I do not need to get into. Eventually, Allen and I broke up and Oliver found out. He started asking me out every single day. He even tried kissing me and I felt extremely uncomfortable. He was getting way to perverted and it creeped me out so I told him if he asks me out again I will never talk to him, go near him, or be his friend ever again. A week later he asked me out and I said me and him could not be friends any longer. Just because of that, the next day I come home from school and my friend Ashley calls me and says, "Have you heard the rumor about you!?" I said, "What!? What's the rumor!? Who spread it!?" As soon as she told me the rumor, I knew exactly who spread it. Oliver. The rumor was "Uma "did it"(had sex) with a high schooler." I knew it was Oliver because once he asked me if I have ever "done it" with a high schooler. I was scared and mad and sad and I had no idea what to say to her that I just broke down crying and dropped the phone. I had no idea what tomorrows day would be like. The next day, I saw everyone staring at me. I heard that people were calling me slut, whore, whinny little bitch, prostitute. They stared at me in the halls and in class. My grades dropped, too. I hated it. I didn't know what to do! I cried myself to sleep every night for a month or two. None of my friends cared enough to ask me if I needed help with these bullies. I never told my parents. Even Kayla didn't know about the rumor until I told her about it but she was so supportive to me and she told me to always think positive and she really made me feel better but I wasn't always around her in school so I didn't always remember to "think positive." I talked less, I participated in class and with my friends less. I smiled less. I was loosing my friends quick. I thought my life was useless and nobody cared. Like I didn't belong in this world or that I wasn't right to be here, alive. I kept everything a secret. This lasted through the end of my eight grade year. I was even scared to walk up the stage for graduation because everyone would see me. I hid my face from people most of the time. During summer I heard I wasn't going to Palm Springs High. That's the school everyone normally goes to. My parents decided that Xaviers College Prep would be a better high school to keep me on track. I told the friends that I had left that I wasn't going to the same high school as them. They told me that they will try to keep me updated on everything that goes on in their school. I heard during summer people were still talking about me and the rumor. It was also all over Facebook, I heard. I deleted my Facebook when the rumor started because I didn't want to see any of their mean, rude posts about me. When their school started, my friend Michael told me that Allen started believing in the rumor too, and that other people were continuing were they left off with the rumor. The rumor still exists right now at this very moment. I hated my eight grade year. Nothing at all went right for me. It as complete torture. I still blame lots of things on me. I keep thinking that all this bullying that happened to me in middle school was all my fault. I really don't know if it was or not. I am very glad I am in a different school than the other people. It feels like I don't have any drama anymore but I still have that really big pain in me from all the bad memories in elementary and middle school. I hope that nothing like this ever happens to anyone else. We do not deserve this at all! I know that if I ever see another girl or guy getting bullied, I WILL HELP THEM because I know exactly how they feel. I know the Kind Campaign helps us girls feel more secure and it feels like we can finally trust some people and let all the truth come out of us. -

Annie: I was in a bad place in my life in High School and I took it out on you. I forever regret being like that, you are a woman, a human and you deserved better. - heather

Harmony: I was bullied the first year of middle school. Right when I walked in, unknowingly I had said hi to the enemy I would soon make. She bullied physically and verbally. This pushed me more and more into a deep depression, everyday I would come home and just stare out the window hoping to get the courage to end my life, but I could never do it. My parents moved me into a whole different school, but instead of hating my bully, I would like to thank her, because without her bullying me, I would have never met the friends I have today. I am finally happy. -

Bella Geiwald: By taking the Kind Pledge, I pledge to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. - San Diego

Bella Geiwald: My Story: In forth grade all the kids in my neighborhood (including my brother) started a club called IHATEBELLA and they would meet every week and jot down notes on how they all hated me and then mail it to me and i used to sit in my room crying just thinking. "what did i do to deserve this " I used to sit in my room the whole day and just do my homework and then close all my curtains and lock my door and go on my computer and look at all the insults they put on the internet ... I really hated it once I even considered running away to a place no one would know me and i could start fresh. It lasted a while .... up to sixth grade and then i met a new girl named Maura.. She really got it and she is and always will be my Best Friend .... SHe got me through all the tough times later on I decided to go and confront the starter of the club and I said to ________ " You Know what your doing is wrong... later on in your life you are going to regret this and you will think to yourself heyy i wish I could turn the clock back and just never have done that" so ________ They said I am really sorry and then for about 2 months we became really good friends and then one day she decided she didnt like me anymore so she came to my house and said " I was pretending the whole time I really thought you were a bi**h "!!!!! But overall I think THat if I could turn back the clock and erase all the tears i had cried, I really wouldnt because that experience made me who i am now.... The Better Person! -Bella Geiwald (7th Grade) I PLEDGE TO BE KIND -

Bhea: I'm always bullied by almost everyone in my grade. That's why I always hate going to school. I always wanted to stay at home. I feel like I'm always alone that's why I just play whatever things that I have at home. -

Lindsay: Im so sorry if i ever discluded you or made you feel left out - Annie

Lindsay: everyone in school laughs at me and makes fun of me because i'm flat chested -

Alana S: Im sorry to my friend, who liked the same guy I did. Turns out, the guy liked me, and he asked me out, and I did ask for my friends permission to date him, but when she said yes, I know it still hurt her. When me and that guy broke up, she was there to comfort me and hold me when I cried, even though I "stole" her guy. That is truly a good friend, and I am sorry for letting the guy come before her. - Kati I

Alana Swaringen: I get/got alot of things said about me for always "flirting" or being all about guys, which I'm totally not. I like being in relationships, but it's only because I'm happy with the person, whoever I'm with at the time. But i love my friends more. People always say things about me, or make fun of me, often to my face, and alot of the people who say things are my friends. But they don't understand how much it really hurts, and how hard it is for me, dealing with the small insults that build up and flow out at night when I cry. But today, Lauren and Molly came to our school and the girl student body watched their documentary, and in the end, most of us were in tears. Not from sadness, but from that knowing we were all the same, with similar stories, and that we weren't alone. We did our apology cards, and I got two from my good friends apoligizing for being mean to me about my dating habits. We became so much closer, crying in eachothers arms, and today has changed my life forever. Thank You :) -

jessie: i know this isn't as bad as others but im still upset about it 2 years later. i was on the bus going to school on my first day of 6 grade.there wasn't any seats in the front of the bus so i had to set in the back. a 7 grader said 6 graders arent suppose to set in the back and told her she wasn the boss of me then she called me an ass. -

Mary : My truth starts in first grade. I had only a few friends but the girls that I wanted to be friends with wouldn't let me be there friend. I was always jealous of the other girls relationships with other each other. But when middle school came around I was a punching bag. Girls would call me fat, ugly, weird, and annoying behing my back. Even one etime this girl said it to my face. It wassnt until the middle of 7th grade when I finally got over the names and I went out with the most popular guy in my school. I had finally felt up there and ignored other drama. But after he dumped me, girls made me go back to the bottom of the list of pops. 8th grade came and I had all new friends who were sweet but still never fully excepted me cause I use to be popular. I use to come home every other day feeling horrible and myself and I always cried. It got so bad one day that when I was in pe a girl threw a ball several times at me and made fun of me. When I went to go talked to my friend alone she came over and asked me what's wrong. I acted horrible and said well ya know being picked on by ppl like u and getting hit by balls because of u. Then she said well being called a bitch isn't nice either. I had found out someone lied to her and told her I called her one when clearly I didn't. After 8th grade everyone went to Eastside Catholic. I had to go to mount si. I've made some friends. But the drama is still here. Most of my vball team was super mean to me. Girls had attitude, made fun of me being short, the clothes I weared, yelled at me when I was crying after being in pain from a game. Always told me what right which was never really right and always was on my case about every little thing. One girl said I make the team look bad. I think I'm pretty, smart, and nice. I hold my ground when girls r mean but is it really fair? -

Iman: I pledge to always be myself and be much nicer to all the girls I meet! - Peterborough

Iman: I'm SO sorry to all the girls I've ever been mean to! - All The Girls

Caelie Desmond: I pledge to not judge people by their looks or how they act. I will smile at everyone. I will report and stop all bullying I see. - Kirkland

Caelie Desmond: I am truly sorry for spreading rumors about you and your ex. I said you were a slut and that you broke up with him because he was a virgin. I didn't know better than to say what I heard. I look back and truly regret helping spread the rumor. - Hannah Kasper

Caelie Desmond: In 4th grade i was eating lunch like i normally do. Then my best friend came up to me and I said hi. She instantly turned cold and said " Leave me alone. You're fat and stick to me like velcrow." I cried so hard for weeks. I didn't truly trust people until I moved in 7th grade. Then I was made fun of for being overweight. People called me a slut and a whore to my face and behind my back even though I haven't ever dated or kissed anyone. It got so bad that I was contemplating suicide. I was having problems at home too that was making me emotionly unstable at school. With all the problems i was having I was thinking " Why me? Of all the people here, why take it out on me. What did I do to deserve this?" My best friend is being bullied too. He is an in the closet gay. Everyone thinks he's gay but he doesn't want anyone to know. He feels like if he comes out everyone will bully him even more. I stand up for him all the time. It makes me feel terrible because he cries on my shouldur a lot. It makes me cry. I get called lesbeian because I hold hands with my friends that are girls. I get called slut when I hold hands with friends that are guys. It seems like there's no escape. Until today. We watched finding kind at school. Afterwords, we talked about our bully stories. I found out that there were girls like me and even worse. I shared my story and sobbed my heart out to strangers. I feel an emotional bond with them now. I had to stop in the middle of my story because I was crying so hard. I now realize that I need to stand up for people I see bullied. -

Bailee Meyer: It all started when I was in kindergarten. I rode a bus with kids who took the roll of a bully. I would just be sitting there and kids would say that I was fat and had no reason to live. They would just tell me this everyday. I didnt know what to say. No one stood up for me. I felt alone. Once I started getting older I tried standing up, but it still didnt stop. I finally thought of taking my own life in the 3rd grade. I was know as the fatty in our school. I started trying to starve myself as I grew older and I couldnt stand it. I knew I couldn't do anything. I finally said enough was enough. I lost weight as the years went by and have been trying to make a change in our community for bullying. I right know still eventually get bullied once in a while. After all I am a middle School. I just feel as if this should stop. Girl against Girl crime is not the way to go. We need to make a change quickly. I know it can never stop fully. I feel as if you guys are doing so much for our world. Id like to Thank you! For everything -

Jacqueline: I keep ignoring my little cusin that is 5 years old and i feel sad for her -

kaitlyn (hopeful): So much has hapened but, there was this one girl named margaret, she was the biggest impact EVER. I'm 11 now and in 7th grade, i skipped 2nd, but this starts when we were 2. She lives two houses down the street and i see her everyday at school, she has done so much to influence the way i think about myself, the two stories i want to share with the kind campaign are from at least 5 years ago, i still remember. First story. She had locked me in the bathroom and my friends and her were playing in her room, giving up hope I started to cry. I heard her laugh and the screen door close, they were in her backyard now. I finally picked the lock and ran out. I locked the backdoor on her and ran home. I didn't know they could get out the garage and I was almost home when she grabbed my arm and my "friends" flanked her. I was so suprised I can imagine how much fun she was getting out of that stupid suprised look on my face. She strted chanting at me fat albert and my friends jade and sierra started chanting it too. I ran home crying, it didn't stop. for $ MONTHS they chanted it everytime they saw me whitch was really inconvenient because they all lived on my street, rode my bus, got babysat by my mom, and had the same class as me. I was incredibly hurt and cried everytime, worst mistake ever. Worse than getting pantsed 2 times on the rope in pe. Next story. This had a slight win for me though. We were riding our bikes and she started chasing me chanting cry baby. I'm not fast at all unless a snake's chasing me so she caught up. She pushed the bike over on top of me and I screamed. I was so mad she actually ran. She pushed, i tripped, she kicked, i grabbed her arm, she ran and got the last laugh. I feel horrible saying all this, people everywhere have it way worse but it hurt so much!!! I feel like a horrible person, I can't forgive her and no one has bullied me in two years, but everytime i look in the mirror i put myself down and everytime some one looks and smiles at me in the halls i smile back but think it's suspicious. I only smile when i'm depresses or laughing and people think i'm sad when i have a normal face on, no one knows how depressed I am and i cry WAY too easily. I love the kind campaign. thnk you. ~ Kaitlyn -

Rachel: I am sorry for not being there for you when you needed me the most. - Ashley

Kyle: I pledge to stand up for others that are being bullied, so they realize that it is unacceptable and that as a society we need to change. Not only will I stand up for those who are being bullied, but I will stand up to the bullies to stop the hate. I will also work to ensure that I am not bullying and that I am in fact helping to make this place better. - Green Bay, WI

Hailey S: I've been bullied for 10 years and I don't ever want anyone to go to the measures and pain I turned to. Please be kind -

Jessica: I'm sorry for telling everyone you liked him. - Ashlynn

Jessica: One day I gossiped about this other girl saying that she liked one guy.The rumor spread to everyone. -

Meg: To try to be more confident. - Florida

Johanna: Truth: I have been bullied and still do about my height. I am 14, and am 4''7'. And i have not shown anyone that it has hurt me, but now it seems like everyone just picks at me and doesnt think about my feelings. Just a few days a go, one of my friends said to me "you're so short! Do you have to buy your clothes at the kids section?!" in my head, i was hurt and wondered why she decided to tell me there when we were in clase, having a good time. But now i have learned to like my height, and that i dont care about what anyone thinks about my hieght. I have great friends, who stick up for me if someone does try to make fun of me. I just want to tell everyone, that it seriously gets better! you might feel like crap now, but time will heal you! just think if everyone was like, " i dont care what people think of my height, clothes, friends, popularity, money, and beauty!" the whole world would be like a really big family, and no one would feel like they have to give up their life, because other people dont like what they do! STOP BULLYING AND START EXCEPTING!:) -

Emily: I guess you could say that I was never bullied in a direct way. But in reality, how often do girls fight straight up. my struggle has come from a combination of jk's, it's not big deals, and I never said that's. I have has so many friends in high school that have talked about me behind my back and betrayed my trust. I told people my most personal thoughts and feelings, only to hear that they had told many other girls. I always struggle with my self confidence. I have always been a heavy girl and I struggle with being my own sense of affirmation. I hear plenty of times a day that I am ugly, have no friends, or that no guy would ever like me. Regardless of if the words are a joke, they hurt. The truth is that instead of building each other up, girls tear each other down so that they can be the one and only queen bee. When in reality, we could all support and love each other to make us all feel like queens in our own ways. -

aaliyah: sorry for not being there and turning on u hen everyones hated you -

Danna: My pledge is to keep positive thoughts and keep my opinions to myself. I pledge to be kind and respect others! - Dover, NH

Danna: I apology for all the mean things I have said. It isnt right to do that and I wouldnt want those things said about me. - Random

Danna: In high school I was never the popular girl or even someone people payed attention too. It really hurt to see people going out when I was never invited. To make myself feel better I made fun of and talked bad about those people. -

Sam Dodge: When I was the age of 13 everything in my life was consuming me. Every time I looked into the mirror my reflection became more and more unrecognizable.I wasn't like all my friends; blonde, skinny, and i definitely wasn't the girl all the guys wanted. I began to make decisions that I would have never made a couple months earlier. My goal was to became like all my friends, someone that I was not. The farther away I got from myself the more the decisions i was making went down hill. I was talking to guys ways that I never wanted to just so they would be interested in me. One day after being told that again I was heaver or in other words fat by my one friend I broke down. The most popular guy in my school all of a sudden was texting me after this whole situation and had asked me to send him pictures of myself. Being the new girl I was and wanting so badly to be liked I made the wrong decision. The next year of my life was the looks, rumors, laughs, being excluded, and alone. I felt like I was the only person in the world that even made a mistake because that's what these people made me feel like. I was looked down at if i was even looked at. The people new me as "that girl". I woke up one morning and decided that i wasn't going to be her anymore. That the girl i new about a year ago, who loved her sense of style, softball, and laying in her bed listening to music and having fun was the girl i wanted to be. I know that that time in my life was something that is going to describe how i am but i am glad that i learned from my mistakes and that even though people have there own opinions on me, mine is the only one that matters. -

Tiffany: My name is Tiffany and I'm 21. When I was in 7th grade I moved to a new town and went to a new school. On my first day a girl named Marina was nice enough to show me around. We passed a boy in the hall and I told her I thought he was cute. It turned out he had a girlfriend who was pretty and popular and somehow by the end of the day she found out that I had said her boyfriend was cute. She had turned the whole school against me on my very first day. From then on I was getting dirty looks, pushed and shoved in the halls, threatening instant messages, it was awful. I hated school. I had never felt so alone and scared in my life. I tried to stay home or leave school early everyday. It was the worst year of my life. Luckily the next year was better but I'll never forget what those girls did to me. I wish the kind campaign was around back then but I'm so thankful to Lauren and Molly that girls today that are going through what I went through have people like you standing up for them. You two are angels and I appreciate what you are doing more than you know. -

McGill Carter: Dear anyone who has felt they don't matter, You are worth it. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. Tell everyone else they are worth it, too. You are beautiful. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. If true beauty shines on the inside, it shines on the outside, too. You are kind. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. A compliment can change everything, no matter how small. You are smart. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. Use your intelligence to help others, and to spread the message. YOU are YOU. YOU are worth it, YOU are beautiful, YOU are kind, YOU are smart. Don't let the hate get to YOU, and don't change who YOU are for someone else. - YOU

McGill Carter: I pledge to keep a smile on my face, step in and stand up when someone is getting bullied, and to spread the wonderful message of the Kind Campaign wherever I go. - Greensboro

Aspen : I kindly pledge to not take part in female bullying or bullying of any kind. I kindly pledge to spread the word about kind campaign to anyone and everyone I can. I kindly pledge to keep the documentary(Finding Kind) in the back of my mind and how each person felt each time I witness bullying so I can take a stand. I kindly pledge to stand up for people whether they are my friend or not. I kindly pledge to not be a bully. I kindly pledge to be there for people who are being bullied, to give them compliment and tell them they have someone to talk to. - Wake Forest,NC

Aspen,NC: The truth is I have been bullied. But I have also been the bully. I sometimes think that I have it bad but then I hear about it on the news and see it in the documentary people dealing with bullying and I realize that I have no where close to the idea of some people's stories. What you consider to be a small joke can be taken to heart and hurt someone really bad. So with that being said a small compliment that you give to someone can make a huge difference. You don't have to know someone to hurt them and bully them. But you don't have to know someone to stand up for them either. So be a friend NOT A BULLY! You can change someone's life with just a couple of words. It's free to be kind! -

Haylee: I've been to three different schools in three years. The first school I went to was in a small town and we were friends with everybody since you really couldn't go off by yourself. Then in eighth grade, I changed to a different school where some of my friends were going to. When I transfered schools, I got along with my friend, and made friends with hers. One of her friends became my best friend (we're still best friends even though we live 90 miles apart), and my friend became jealous. She started telling lies behind my back. My best friend told me this, and was afraid I wouldn't want to be her friend anymore (I still find it a little funny that she would think I wouldn't want to be her friend), and I told her the total opposite. I let her talk her heart out about this, but I kept my own feelings in. When I was by myself, I let dark thoughts enter my head. I didn't realize that I have ever thought of suicide, until Molly and Lauren came to my school one day. And I'm really glad that I didn't do any of it. Now I'm in a different school and away from my old friend, but my best friend is there. But I'm really glad that the Kind Campaign came to my school and taught me this lesson. -

Kate: I wish I had friends -

Megan : In my school of 800+ people just 8-9th grade, its not uncommon to see people being bullied. But, since we have gotten older, its harder to see because girls have gotten sneakier. Whether it be making sure that girl knows shes not invited or posting and embarassing photo of another girl on facebook. Girls dont realize the impact of the things they do online or through other people. It hurts just as bad, and this way everybody knows about it too so it hurts even more. i wish somebody had told this to the girl who ruined freshman year for me. But, i forgive her. -

Maraena Black: I pledge to be kind to EVERYONE! I will compliment each girl I meet and will stick up for those who are being bullied - Johnston

Sydney : Today Lauren and Molly came to my school. A couple days before soem of my bestfriends and I have been having problems because of a boy liking me. They stared calling me a slut and a whore. I went to the bathroom and cried and then when I went to the office to get help I got called a snitch. It seemed like we woudlnt ever be friends again. Then you guys came and we are close again. I wanted to say thank you guys soooo mucchhh!!! You gusy really inspired so many of us girls today and had me become friends with the people I have bullied or said mean things too. I will never forget when you guys came today. Thank you so much. -

Haley Blackford: I pledge to help stop the bullies at my school and stick up for those who are being picked on. Also to stay true to myself. - Johnston

Kaitlyn: In middle school I got called fat and ugly. I went to the bathroom most days and cried. My parents never knew. Last year in 8th grade, things were just getting to bad and I got made fun of and laughed at everyday. I started to self harm and went into a deep depression. My parents then found out and started to find ways to help me. Nothing was working and I thought the only way out was suicide so I had a plan all planned out of how and when. I then went to a kind campaign presentation at my moms school and that changed everything. I went back to my school and started ignoring what everyone was saying about me. I overcame self harm and kind campaign kept me alive. Thank you -

Megan Aspengren: Many people don't realize the damage they can do with just the little coments they make about someone of something they say to their face. I experienced this when I was on a club volleyball team. I was excited for the year to begin, but soon found out how the girls on my team really were. They would yell at me on the court, and never include me in their conversations. I even caught a few girls talking behind my back. All of these little things individually don't sound like a big deal, but when they repeatedly happen it's harder to enjoy my favorite sport. As things grew worse I developed anxiety and depression. I was even sad at school and came home crying. Luckily, I had a couple of great friends help me through it and my parents. When the Kind Campaign came to visit us and shared their documentary, I finally understood. Bullying is not a joke, the littlest things you say can seriously hurt someone. You may not know what is going on in their home life or with their friends. Do NOT ever be to quick to judge someone. They may be the nicest person you will ever meet, but if you don'y give them a chance you will never know. Try something knew. Mayabe give a compliment to someone you may not know very well or invite them to sit with you at lunch. The smallest things can make a big difference. So do something today or tomorrow or now!!! Everybody needs a good friend and it all starts with you -

Elle : promise to make a difference in my school and neighborhood because it hurts to be bullied and no one should ever go through it. -

Dessiree: Okay My name is Dessiree as you see! Well you had came to my school and gave a amazing presentation. Thank you so much!! I do have a story my self: Its not as bad as other peoples but for me its sad:( Okay well It all started when I was in 3rd grade I had a little group of friends and a new girl had came! I was really excited because At that time I never new what it was like to have a new girl come in a class. And bye the wayy i no this is random but im not the dessiree down there in the other peoples truth box thing. Well im just gona use the first letters of there names There was H, D(me), E,L,K, and then we all started hanging out with a new girl B. In my opinion she was super nice and I really liked her but they didnt. At this time me and H were best-friends. Sence i was hanging out with B and a little bit less with her she got jealous. She had told B that she better stay away from me because she was steeling me. B didnt. And theres G too. Well Im not the smartest person I struggle in school but i really do try. Well in 3rd grade the teacher had called on me and I didnt know the answer so I just sad there confused. So the teacher said can someone help her. So someone els got the answer and then G said "Finally! how do you not no that" I felt usless and dumb. More days of school came and me and all of this was still happening. So one day I bursted out crying to my mom and so me and her went in the school and talked to the teacher. Things went good. Only for a little bit. 4th grade had came, Me and B were still good friends. H still didnt like it. And this confused me because H was always mean to me but she doesnt want me to hangout with anyone els? And she would spread rumors. One even was that my mom barged in there house and sweard tuns of bad words infrot of all the little kids. That day I didnt want to do anything. I just wanted to sit and hide. 5th grade came and this is when H had sucked up to B and they were becoming friends and I was so happy and so exited! That H wouldnt be mean anymore. Well one day they had diched me. I was so sad I felt like no one liked me. So another day came and H me and B all made big plans to go to the park and have a huge water fight H said she would be at my house with B in about 2 mins and i just was them ride past on their bikes. I cryed and balled for about 3 hours. I coulnt beleve they did that again!! Well B had a facebook and so did I. I had messaged her tuns of mean mean things like your a backstabing lier and other stuff. I thought it was the right thing to do. But it wasnt. I got back what i gave to them and i disterved it. No one at school would talk to me exepet one girl named Hannah(: She was my bestfriend too we have been friends sence babys. We all got over it but she still would call me names and spred rumors about me. 6th grade came and I was saying to my self " Im gona start new this year im gona have new great friends and just start new" That had happend!! I was friends with these girls named hailee sara taylor and many moree!! Me and taylor were bestfriends -

Thank-you Lauren and Molly for inspiring me at your presentation today at Neenah High School! - Neenah

Olivia: Sorry for ignoring you when you needed me the most. - Mikenzie

Olivia: When I was an eighth grader, I was all I wanted to be and more; the dancer, the singer, part of the school leadership/kindness program, and had tons of friends. About half way through the school, my friend (let's call her Hannah) and I both fell for the same guy. We ended up getting his number and him and I texted/talked all the time for 3 months. We were looked at as a couple. I told my friend that he said he liked me and that we were going to become "more than friends". She flipped out. She screamed at me. Her and I had been best friends for 8 years and every minute of that went to waste because of a guy. I told her that if it really bugged her that much I would say that I would like to stay friends and nothing will happen. So told me it did, and I decided to put my friend before the guy and turned him down. I thought everything was going good until my group of friends decided to do track together (it conflicted with my dance schedule). Shortly after the season started, they started acting weird and ignoring me when I was with them. I asked another of my friends(let's call her Margret), who I had complete trust in, if my group was mad at me. She said no. I then asked her if they talked about me frequently because I was curious. She said yes. Later that day, Margret and I had to help in the guidance office during lunch. I asked her what they were saying, because I wanted to confront them about it and tell them that if I was doing anything wrong to please tell me. Margret said that they were calling me annoying, a slut, and a bitch. I was devistated. These girls and I had been friends since 2nd grade, atleast! She said they were saying really mean things about me. I spent the rest of the lunch period in the bathroom with Margret crying. I couldn't believe them. I confronted them and they ganged up on me, so I thought I should just let it be; I didn't tell anyone. The end of the year dance was coming up soon and we planned to all get together prior to the dance and then go out to dinner afterwards. I asked them what were doing and they said that they were going to get ready at Hannah's house. I knew that we were getting ready together and I was gone the day that they planned it. I asked them for the details and one of my "friends" (let's call her Natalie) told me right to my face that they don't like me anymore and that I'm going to have to find another group to get ready with. We had planned this since the beginning of eighth grade. The dance was 2 weekends away. The night of the dance I got ready with another group of friends and then we went to the dance. While we were at the dance, I got asked to slow dance with this guy I liked, so I said yes. Just because I said yes, these girls made up a rumor about me and how I was grinding with him and how i was a whore. When the rumor got to me, I tried to confront them. After weeks of arguing, fighting, and tears, Natalie finally came up to me in the hallway and said that I deserved everything I got. I haven't talked to Natalie, Margret, or any of the other girls since Natalie said those few words. -

Sophie: I'm Sorry that I slept with your bf... It was a good night - Alisha

Sophie: My apology is to my parents I'm Sorry that I ran away all the time and partied I wish I could have a relationship with you guys again. But know that it will never happen. I love you mom and dad.. - Colleen+ Darwin

jackie duffy: My experience with girls bullying me began my first week as a freshman at an all girl high school in louisville Ky. A group of sophomores lead by one girl in particular made my life an absolute hell for three years. I do not have many good memories from high school and the scars have not ever fully gone away. These girls spread terrible rumors about me, made fun of me and would yell out "slut" every time I walked by. When parties were held, several times signs would be up saying my name and a few other girls were not allowed to come in. I was repeatedly humiliated. They even went as far as throwing feces in my locker and writing slut on my car. Back then - 25 years ago, bullying was not openly talked about. I would cry myself to sleep at night for three solid years. I stayed home and became reclusive. I began to suffer from severe depression and anxiety and hated to go out in public for fear of someone making fun of me. I contemplated suicide several times but fortunately never followed through with it. I never told my parents which was a terrible mistake. I suffered in silence. I still to this day feel as if others dont like me and am not very trusting of others. I now have two daughters of my own and pray every day they do not experience what I did. It has had a lasting effect on my life and my relationships with others. I still see some of these girls from time to time in my community. I truely feel sorry for them that they were capable of being so heartless and cruel. I just hope that by telling my story I can help someone else who may be dealing with this. I noticed there is not a kind club in Louisville Ky and I would love to help start one up or participate in some way. -

Christel: I pledge to be kind first and foremost. - Singapore

Bobby: Hey man, I'm sorry for kicking the crap out of your cat. It just kept MEOWING and MEOWING. ... Is it dead? You blocked me from Facebook, so I can't tell. Oh well, just tell me when you're not mad anymore. And next time, try to keep your cats up when I'm over. - Remington

Buhs: Buh. -

Carly: I pledge to love myself unconditionally, no matter how pretty I feel, or what I weigh, or who my friends are. I pledge to let myself off the hook, just for today. - New York

Carly: In fifth grade, I heard that the girl who bullied me thought I had a big butt. It was the first time i felt self conscious about my body, and all i wanted to do was change for her so that she would like me. That one comment, heard through the grapevine, triggered years of self-hatred and a distorted body image that lead me to an eating disorder. I'm so grateful to be recovered now, but I wish that girl knew how much it hurt, how awful she made me feel, and how much I wish I had stood up for myself. -

Jordyn: I pledge, to unite in kindness in an effort to end female bullying. ~I, Jordyn, pledge to be a kind person. To not judge people by how they look, talk, or act. I will accept all people for who they are, and I will never turn someone away. I pledge, to be KIND. - Coconut Creek

Jordyn: Sarah, Im so sorry. Although you wil probably never see this, but Im so sorry. I ws so caught up with wanting to be accepted, that I turned on you. I talked a lot of trash about you to the popular girls, that I thought accepted me. I was stupid. Im so sorry. - Sarah

Jordyn: People bully me all the time. I dont have many friends, but I try to make as much as I can. I just started my Freshman year in Hghschool. People are really mean. I used to think it was just in movies, but now I am actually experience, and let me tell you, it sucks. People throw things at me, push me, call me fat, call me ugly, call me names, call me that "Stupid Jew", (I'm jewish), and call me annoying, and the ADHD freak. I have a few close friends, but even they dont stand up for me all the time. I consider myself a good friend and I dont understand what Im doing wrong, but Im tired of trying. Sometimes, I feel like life sucks, and that it's not worth it. The pain, the verbal, and physical abuse, the name calling. Its not worth it sometimes. I act like im so happy and easy going with life on the outsie, but on the inside, im dying. My bestfriend was suicidal, and has depression, and I tell her how amazing life is & how she shouldnt miss out on life, but I guess Im just a hypocrite, because I dont believe a word of what even Im saying. I have all the symptoms of teen depresion, and I want to confide in my bestfriend about it, but shes the type of person, who, if I DO tell her, she will call me "fake" and "an attention hog". I dont know what to do. I just want to be accepted. -

angel: I just read what coral did to becka, you shouldn't be forgiven. You nasty little monster.soulless.its one thing to bully another to try to make someone try to end their life! She lost her dad, her mom is dying, and you and your minions did that to her?! Unforgivable. Get help. - becka the angel.coral is satan

fran: In 8th grade my former bff Cindy N. and Susy F. had a sleepover and I wasn't invited and that Monday at school she took every letter I wrote her, highlighted key points, passed them around our class! A hundred kids read my inner most thoughts,dreams,fears,jealousies,etc. I left my Dads home because he severely verbally and emotionally abused to the point I considered suicide and I wrote her about those feelings. I was jealous of the cool kids I lived in the same neighborhood as, but didn't fit in with. I rode the cool bus to school and was not cool at all. I wrote all of this. I even bad mouthed the cool kids cuz I was mad I wasn't in their clique. She had no qualms about passing these notes everywhere. I was ripping my inner most thoughts and pain out of me to put on paper and it was a f'ing joke by the end of the day! I quit my beloved tennis lessons cuz friends of the kids were in my class, acted out in school to get kicked out, skipped classes, ate lunch all alone, etc. It was humiliating. No grown up listened to me except 1 teacher. Mrs Ruda . My Aunt called all these girls mothers months earlier and told them how disturbed I was, a liar, low self esteem, she sealed my fate those months earlier. She proved she ha no loyalty to me, wouldn't defend me, wouldn't try to get ppl who bullied me punished. She bad mouthed me to ALL of my little girlfriends parents! They ALL said I could never come over again, play with their oh so innocent kids, I was a bad influence, they were good before I came along, etc. I was alone but blissfully ignored before the letters were passed around. I tried to kill myself. I took an entire bottle of advil and allergy meds mixed and drank a few shots of vodka. I wrote a hate letter to those 2 girls, normal goodbye letter to everyone else. The vodka made me puke ALL the pills up in less than 20 minutes after I took them. I was taken to the er puking and puking. I burst a blood vessel in my eye. They found the letters and even called the school and told them what the girls had done and they kicked me out! To this very day I'll never forget that. All that happened in less than 3 months. -

ashley: Dear mom, I am so sorry for telling you that you are not my mom.You adopted me and cared for me when i had nobody and i will never forget that no matter how often i say differently.You showed me love when i had nobody to care for me.I am so sorry that when dad died i shut down and wouldn't talk to you when you needed me.The stress of him being gone got to me and i tried to kill myself i didn't wanna live anymore.You took care of me and kept fighting to get through even when i put up a huge fight you wouldn't give up on me and i thank you i am sooooooo sorry for the pain i have caused you please forgive me mama i love ya! - Mama

Caroline: I pledge to always show love and compassion to any girl no matter who they are or where they are from. I pledge to spread kindness through acts of love and compassion and that whenever another girl is mean to me to turn my other cheek and show her even more kindness than before. - Carmel

Caroline: I just want to say i'm truly sorry for all the times I've talked behind your back. I know that no matter how you've treated me you have never deserved what I've said or done. If anything it means you deserve my love even more. Although we get on each others nerves you're still one of my best friends and I love you to death. I will always be praying for our friendship to blossom. - Ale

Caroline: In fifth grade my best friend ditched me to hang out with cooler girls. They peer pressured her into bullying me, convinced her to not hang out with me anymore, and spread rumors about me. Because of this I was extremely insecure throughout middle school and suffered from depression. Our friendship was the never the same and even though she apologized we only talk from time to time. We moved on and grew apart, but in the end she chose them over me. -

lyndina: im a bully in my school im trying to stop but i cant -

Katy: I'm sorry for everything. We did'nt start out great but somehow we beacame bestfriends until I kissed the guy you liked....And you called me things that hurt. And what hurt most is that thoes words were coming from you. But after all that you forgave me and I forgave you. But yesterday at the documentary I saw you how I've never seen you before. It broke you so much and you told me why it had effected you so much, and I did'nt know no one else knew and I was wrong to tell Her, but in direct I did'nt tell them. She heard me and Cal talking. And Callie told me. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE with cherries on top forgive me. I need you - You

Grace : Dear,Collette I know were in 7th grade now and the last time we spoke was in summer break when we were in 5th but I wanted you to know I'm so sorry I should have apologized sooner but I was too afraid to and once I saw you with your new friends I knew you wouldn't care anymore. I shouldn't have said the things I said I over reacted. I just wanted you to know how sorry I am that, that happened and were not friends anymore. Best wishes, Grace - Collette

Madeline: When I was in middle school, I was tormented. I was shunned from my group of friends, had rumors spread about me, and even had people outside my locker, waiting to beat me up. It became worst when I found out people were going up to my only friend and asking her why she was friends with me. They even told newcomers to stay away from me. I never understood what I had done. I ended up becoming depressed and even had suicidal thoughts. But, that one friend stuck up for me, even when they talked about me in front of her. You never know how loyal someone is until it's put to the test. I have serious trust issues, but never with her. But I came out with problems. I don't trust many people and I'm still working through anger issues. I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop when I make a new friend. I even broke down about it and had a panic attack almost 4 years after it had ended. I had just seen "Finding Kind" and spent most of the movie crying. Not only from the bad memories of middle school, but because of one simple question. Why wasn't anyone there for me? But, after having the break down and panic attack, I can now look back on middle school and not carry the demons I once had. All because I saw this movie and realized I wasn't alone and that getting out what happened would help me. Thank you to these amazing girls. They really do help. -

amber reed: i always have been scared about starting middle school and everyone told me not to be but i relized i shouldve been i wasnt pretty i didnt wear good clothes and i wasnt popular i spent all of 6th grade trying to fit in because of the comments i would get from the popular, pretty girls they said stuff like gosh u like like trash or they would walk past me and be all like eew and call me ugly i hated it i tryed so hard but i never did so i just was my self and i still get comments like slut or u look like trailer trash or gash your nasty and its stupid that we get bullied because of what we wear and who we hang out with its just stupid i am in the 8th grade now and i now hove my wn good group of friends and im proud to be who i am my heart was touched when i watched the video when lauren and molly came to my school and when i talked to them about my bullying problem they made me feel happy to be able to make this whole thing is amazing u guys encouraged me to make an anti bullying club for girls at my school i just hav eto get the principals ok and i can do it u guys are an amazing role model :D thnk u for doing all of this u r alll really amazing -

Maddison: Dani, I am sorry I was ever mean to you at all and that I did what I did. I didn't know what to do. I thought I knew why I did what I did but I don't. You were a good friend that "told some of my friends my secrets" I don't even know if that is true but It hurt. I don't expect us to best friends now or ever. But acquaintances, friends or just being civil would be so much better than now. I am truly, deeply, honestly, sorry from the bottom of my heart. Xoxo M - Dani

Elisenda: I was bullied since I was 4 years old till I was 17. My crime, be the first of the class, the nerd, the one who got good grades. I learnt how to read before my classmates, and one girl decided that this fact was unacceptable. Bullying started as early as that, trying to keep me away from other friends. This got worse through my school years and nastier in high school , at the point that I had to be with antidepressants at 15 years old and I had a flare up of an autoimmune disease that I suffer from. For 3 years I was almost suicidal. However time showed me that things get better once you get control of your life. I started college and found true friends. I met the guy that now is my husband and now, I have a son. This doesn't mean that things are always busy. I also suffered bullying on my first serious job. However, I had the power to decide to not tolerate it and the courage to stop it by talking to my bosses. Don't be afraid to speak. Life is yours, not theirs. Stop them. Talk to your parents, to your teachers, to whoever you fell comfortable to. But do it. -

Meghan: i pledge that all girls will realize that everyone needs to be treated the same no matter what. for example: "it doesn't matter if they are black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall fat, skinny, rich or poor. if you are nice to me, i'll be nice to you. simple as that." that was quoted by Eminem. i stick by that quote for a long time - Chelan, WA

Brigitte McColl: i am a freshman in highschool. when i was in 7th and 8th grade i always got stared at and it made me feel like i was doing something wrong. i was looked at by the girls and guys. i thought that they were thinking that i don't look good, or i am fat, or i did something wrong that they didn't want me to do. it made very self concious about what i did or how i looked when i went to school. i went to a private school and this is where this happened. -

Little One: I pledge to never bully someone like i have been bullied. - YL

Scared of the way things are.: My truth is that i have really been bullied all my life. I always seem confident to my friends, but i was really hurt by the jokes that they made sometimes. I knew they were all in good nature, but in a way i saved all of those hurt feelings. I am in 10th grade now, and it has been 5 years i have saved all my hurt emotions and feelings. Things had gotten so bad i had started to hide in the library or in the bathroom, just to avoid the people who hate me and i can't do anything about it. Something major recently happened, that caused my parents to find out about what had been going on for so long. They called the schools it was occurring at and they are going in for meetings and stuff, but the further they get into it, the more they want me to just "accept" things. Now half of my school hates me and i am hell-bent on transferring, because it honestly isn't worth it anymore. All the nasty stares are fine, the comments i have learned to stand, but even their parents are now hating me. My truth is that this seems that my world is collapsing before me now, but one day i will be grateful...hopefully. I made the decision to keep my life, rather than take it, and attempt to work through it. My life has never changed so much, and i have never felt more hurt in my life. My parents want me to start counseling, but i get shy in uncomfortable situations, and i don't want to bother people with my problems. Truth is. Things will never be the same, and i am afraid of even my own shadow. Help? -

Anonymous: In junior high my best friend told me she didn't want to be my friend anymore. I was devistated and I cried just about everyday over the smallest things and even during class. Then this past year she became my best friend again. It still hurts a little to think about by I love her dearly. I just wish I could understand what went wrong with us. -

Annin: I pledge to help stop this female bullying problem. This website even inspired me to start a club to go along with a colombine shooting club that is about doing good deeds and helping the community. my middle school is also part of high school and a college, so we also get school points for it. - Pueblo,Colorado

Annin: I am so sorry about what happened in 5th grade. I hope you can understand that that day we were both the new kids, and I was over defensive because all of the others I thought I was going to make friends with were mean, cruel, and verbally abusive. Again, I'm sorry and I didn't mean to hurt you. Can you forgive me? - Theresa

Annin: I am in 7th grade now and when I was in 5th grade, I accidentally hurt another girl VERY much. I didn't know haow much I ahd hurt her, nor did I know that she was brand new just like I was. I was just very over defensive because I was also the Main target for bullying. I feel really bad and I hope that the bullying for her stopped because it turns out she is really nice, fun, and a lot of guys keep asking her out, as far as I know. -

Caroline: Yesterday I called a girl a lesbian and she started crying and shit her pants in front of the whole class. Then her mom came and picked her up and I felt bad. Sorry. -

Anon: Julia, I saw your post and it reminded me of something that happened to my cousin, and I just wanted to let you know, you are not alone! You may think they are being mean, bullies suck, face it :) lol. But the principal is trying to distance yo ufrom the situation.I am so sorry that this is happening to you :( It's never fair. If you have to, stop interacting with them and ask for a lawsuit. (Cousin did this and the results were won in her favor because the bullies had no evidence and the parents became mad at their children for such horrid behavior.) Keep to yourslef about it, if you deny it you might as well be feeding them. :| I know it's hard to see, but things will get better. Stayt stong, dear! You will make it through the worst!~ - Julia

J <3: Shannon, If there is ever anything you need or anything you want to talk about, you can find me at lunch. I know it must be scary becoming a sophomore at a large school like RHS, just know I'm here :) Don't need to worry about talking about my illness or yours, just a friendly face and a convo about your day. `Stay strong and beautiful :) -

Jillian: Hey Nikki, I know this may be a surprise, but I'm sorry about freshman year. I should have helped you out of the situation you were in because you didn't realize how bad it was for you and him. I hope that someday you see it was wrong too and I hope you forgive me even if you think I have done nothing wrong. Wishing the best for you! - Nikki

Jillian: Jessica, I know you think that I'm a pushover and I live in a box, but I can't live any other way. I know you know and you are always there for me. It seems as though we might grow apart, but really? Who can break up the two best friends? Sometimes I feel left out and I know you do too. I hope that our futures intermingle. I know you think I'm not doing anything or maybe you think I am, but I'm surely not living life through you, and I wanted you to know that I only give you advice with love from the bottom of my heart. :) I also know that you still remember that year we had with N & T. It was one of the best years and you may not know it but for some reason I'm stuck beak in that year. I miss it so much because it seemed so perfect and we were all so in love. :) Forgive me for saying, but I know you miss those days too. Just wanted to tell you how amazing you are to me, even when I'm sick as a dog. I'm blessed to have you as a friend and someone I can share crazy hospital stories to! Stay beautiful! -

Jillian: Lindie, I'm so sorry I haven't been around to talk to. I know you thought things stayed the same with the square of friends, but it fell apart after you left and I'm still stuck in those days. It hurts to see your letters and texts some days!But no worries. :) I miss you so so SO much! I know there are phones and skype and facebook to help, but I still feel bad when you send me a text and I don't reply. Heck, maybe I'll visit you sooner than you think! :) Love you dear. XO - Lindie

Jillian: Ever since I became sick with Wegeners Granulomatosis, I started to view life a lot differently and I am realizing I don't fit in with many of the other teens in my HS. It's hard to make friends that will not be grossed out about what I go through or that will have my back and not get angry when I miss a few days of school here and there. It's even harder finding a guy that understands what's going on and can be okay with my illness and the fact that I'm not skinny. It doesn't help the old medications I was on made me larger than I should be and I started to have worsening self esteem and body issues. Stretch marks tear at my skin and I miss my old life. He'd have to put up with hospitals and medicine and crying. Who can do that? I feel horrible about mood swings and my body and missing out on opportunities I would have if I were normal. On the brighter side, I do have lovely friends who try their best to be there for me. I can't explain to them in detail what actually happens to me because they'd know my smile wasn't always bright because I was happy. I have hope in the future and what it will bring me. I was bullied about weight and missing school, and having hair loss. It was harder in middle school to deal with girls that wouldn't understand and probably will never. I've been fighting for almost 4 years and I'm not going to stop now! In all honesty, life is super tough but knowing there is help and people you can trust, not just fake girls who need gossip to feed on, is super important. Never give up -

Jenna: Dear kristen. I'm so sorry for all of the pain I've caused you. Before the 'accident' my intentions never were to leave you in the state you are today. If it's any consolation, I returned the money I was paid, since I have a no kill no cash policy. I am truly sorry, I should have just come to the hospital that week and finished the job. I truly regret it. With much heartfelt sorrow. - Kristen

cool girl12: I feel your pain aly robbins I feel your pain. -

cool girl12: I used to be friends with a girl named Patricia. We were friends in 3rd and 4th grade but then in 5th grade something happened she started to talk about my friend Abby to talk about that she was annouying and mean and that was rude. And this girl Halely showed up and I started to feel like a third wheel. Then finally the day came we met Halely and Patricia outside. But then it happened. they said we need to tell you somthing and then they started to whisper. So then told Me and Abby that they wanted to play by them selfs. So that's what happened and we never really never talked agin. oh and never trust someone to much. Peace! -

Coolgirl: I'm sorry that happened to you Daisy. I hope your ok. P.s To all those girls out there don't sread rumors there bad. - Daisy

Liv: Lauren and Molly, you girls are awesome for starting this! I can't wait to see how this organization and its message flourishes! Keep up the good work. - TO

alanood: Ever since I was 6 it has been hard I was called a thief by everyone from every grade that year and for a whole 2 years as a child it hurt a lot. It became so hard on me that the moment my mom told me if I want to change schools I said yes ,but it broke me and that school I went to was worse I ended up being bullied more than ever, girls called me a loser (which was worse), and more. I had to go through that for 4 years, because girls kept telling me to "get out of there because no one wanted me there", but I never left because I didn’t want to run away and be a coward. The next school was even worse, but definitely better. I got in fights only in 3 fights all of them for the same reason, someone dissed my family, I mean seriously you can slap me and beat me up everyday until I’m nothing but a bloody rag doll, BUT NEVER CURSE AT MY FAMILY. That was all in the first term soooo I shall finally reveal what happened in the second I found comfort in books, I learned a lot from them,people stopped bullying me all because I finally stopped caring. Now I have been there for 2 years, and sure I might still not have that much friends but believe me I have so much more. So guess why I'm telling you"Be who you are 'cause no matter what you're beautiful,to be perfect is to be imperfect". I mean seriously I have flaws like how my teeth,but I still feel beautiful. So take my advice and don't care. LOVE,Alanood P.S: All the schools were private schools for girls only, and I’m 14 ;> -

L: I'm sorry for not believing you, my reaction was wrong, and although you are now on a path different to mine, I'm ashamed of my behaviour and I've learnt from it. I will be a better person in the future. If I get a chance to apologise to you in person, I most certainly will. - H

Olivia: I did apologize over the summer to Alyssa. But today we planed to meet up at the open house how will i get Jasmine to let me hang out with her - Alyssa

Olivia: It all started when i met a girl named Alyssa. We were best friends until a girl named Jasmine was in my classes we hanged out so much i forgot about her (Alyssa). We (me and Alyssa) started back talking each other. I so want to be her friend again. -

Zena: I had a BFF named Jesse. She is being so mean to me every time we had a fight, and bug me by persuading my friends I did something bad and affects them, taking all my friends away from me. I feel so bad I cried at school. My another BFF Carmen helped me feel better, and told the teacher Jesse kept doing bad things to me. Jesse was so fake! She said sorry, but blamed the other girl, Andria, that she persuade her to bully me together. However, I knew the truth that it was Jesse who persuade Andria to bully me. I was heartbroken, but I kept being normal friends with her. I hope that she won't bully others any more and I have learnt that letting go of your friends makes you feel better. -

Melissa D: 17 years ago, I started at a whole new middle school. I wanted to fit in and so I picked on someone "weaker" than myself. I used to break my pens, during class, and put the blue ink in her very blonde hair. She knew it was me and I never admitted it to her. I am so sorry, Marissa M! If I could take it all back I would. I hope you can forgive me. -

Gretchen: Alyssa, I'm sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It's not your fault you're so gap-toothed. - Emily

Elizabeth Betancourt: I used to be friends with a girl.Her name was Jacelyn Martinez.She would always pick on me and say she was joking around,only she didn't.her i felt shy and scared of what she's going to do to me.She was a bully,I know because she would also bully my friend Jeanine because she had crooked teeth.My so called "best friend" also bullied my cousin Damien because he wore glasses,what she didn't know that he needed to were glasses because his left eye was messed up.One day she banged my head on a table in class ,she told my teacher that it was not on purpose,but it was.My head hurt for the entire day.So I decided to enroll in a diffrent school.On my first day i felt so confident and free from getting hurt.When we went out to play i fell and scraped my arm.I thought kids were going to laugh ,but they didn't one of my friends helped me up and dusted me off.A boy named Alex called me names but I just ignored.Soon he stopped.Now I don't get bullied,but my friend Melissa Venegas gets bullied for her laugh. Everyone is special for something.Some kids think there are not pretty or they are over or under weight.Everybody has freaky flaws.For example me,sometimes I'm untidy kids all over the world are being bullied,so stop this girl fighting "crime".Like Monster High says,"Be unique,Be yourself, Be a monster".They basiclly mean when they say "be a monster is to embrace your flaws,nobody is perfect.To end my story I am going to say what I always say to myself,"Nobody can tell you who to be you are awesome just the way we are." Good luck -

Aaron: I am so sorry for the pain and ill-fate you have endured. I wish you a happy & healthy future, you're a good person and you should know that. Let's be forgiving. - Wanda Wilson

KAN: My truth is that I hurt. I hurt for the friends we use to be and the pain I have caused you, as well as the pain you have caused me. I was different and not everyone liked nor understood that. I floundered and you stood by and laughed. Shunned and made to feel like an idiot. I hurt for years. Tears, scars, feeling worthless and alone. My truth is that I hurt. I'm hurt that you hurt me more than realize and it hurts that you probably will never understand that. I've come through and learned to find women who support and love one another, but from time to time I think of you and I hurt. I hurt for what happened, what once was good turned sour and for the hurt. I hurt, but I continue to grow and move on. To anyone reading. Time does feel slow and it may take a long time for scars to heal, but know that loving yourself and owning your individuality is the most important thing you can do. It will allow you to move forward and realize there is a lot more love and kindness in the world. Sometime you just have to go looking for it. It's there and when you find it, which you WILL, you'll realize how great you are :) -

Cori Edwards: I pledge to create these values in my 6 year old daughter. I will promote this in her school and in my company, Secession Entertainment. I have been, and still am, a victim of women who do not want me to succeed or may not want people to like me, and it's tough to forget the hurt or the betrayal. I have learned to not give other women or men the power to hurt me. We all need to forgive if we want the cycle to be broken. I pledge to be a friend and supporter of all women and forgive those who don't understand this mission. - Austin, TX

Natalie: i am sorry that i bullied you ryan, i was trying to be cool.... i fell really bad ): (easy to type... i am still scared to tell him in person) - Ryan

Natalie.D (bad at spelling): i am in grade 6. I was feeling really fat and ugly one day and both my mom and i were in a bad mood. She (my mom) accidently, in a way called me fat and said that if i stopped eating crapp (junk food) i would get skinny! I coulden't help not eating crapp! i felt even worse about myself!!! So i decided to stop eating. Not just crapp but everything because i coulden't live with my weight! My sister eventuly found out and tried to get me to start eating. She said that my weight was healthy for my age. she told me i was just commparing myself to all of the girls i know (they are all skinny!) i did not want to hurt myself any more but still wanted to be as skinny as barbie. when i told her this she picked up her computer and showed me a picture of a regular woman with lines on her indicating what she would look like as a barbie. and If Barbie were a real woman, her head would be the same circumference as her waist, meaning she’d have room for only half a liver and a few inches of intestines, (as opposed to the usual 26 feet). The result: chronic diarrhea and death from malabsorption & malnutrition. To look like Barbie proportionally, a healthy woman would need to add 61 cm to her height, subtract 15 cm from her waist, add 13 cm to her chest, and 8 cm to her neck length. Because Barbie’s neck is twice as long as the average human’s, it would be impossible for her to hold up her head. Her legs are 50 percent longer than her arms, (the average woman’s legs are only 20 percent longer than her arms). She’d also have to walk on all fours (her feet are so disproportionately small, her chest would pull her forward onto her toes). she showed me that i was not fat and that i should not be sad about my weight. Besides! i might not be the skinnyest in my class but i am the fastest! >_ -

Rebecca Harder: I pledge to do my best in talking out my fear and anxiety rather than getting flustered and blowing up at people I love. I pledge to deal with fights sooner rather than later. I pledge to try to be the better woman whenever I can. I pledge to give others encouraging words when they need them and to always give out free hugs. I pledge to try to listen without judgement, and to give advise that helps, not hurts. I pledge to follow the "Golden Rule". I understand that I am human and that I am allowed to make mistakes, but I pledge to try to be the best person that I can be. - Austin, TX

Rebecca Harder: Dear Mom, I am sorry that we have had horrible fights. I am sorry that I have walked out on you. I am sorry that I don't always tell you when I am stuck. I am sorry that I am not as well adjusted as I should be. I just want to be your perfect little girl, to make you proud, to show you that I can meet all your expectations. I just get so bogged down in the pressure of life/school/etc. that I am afraid to show you any sign of weakness. I don't want you to think of me as a failure, even when I have made mistakes that I wish I could share with you. I am sorry that we have both said stuff that we didn't mean, but was very hurtful anyway. I am sorry if I every caused you panic, or shame, or pain. I know that we are both in a good spot right now with each other, but I would like to be at the point where we can both share our fears and faults with total confidence in being heard and accepted. I am sorry if I am still a little upset with you about the substance of some of our fights, but I want a clean slate. I want you to be able to truly trust me again, and I want to be able to feel like I can tell you everything, even if some of it might make you worry. I love you. - Nuria Lopez

Rebecca Harder: I am 22 years old. I haven't been in high school for about 4 years now, but I still remember the gossip and the drama, and drama still happens to me and my friends, as it probably always will. I've tried to be drama free and let things go, or I have tried to give people benefit of the doubt, but sometimes things/life/school/etc. get really rough and I have lashed out at people that I really care about. It's just hard to hold in all the fear and anxiety and pressure sometimes. I try to be kind all the time, but the truth is, I am not very kind to myself at all. I put myself down all the time, over-criticize every mistake, kick myself for not being perfect. I have OCD and depression, and I have contemplated suicide many times. I have also done some cutting. I just want to say, try to be kind to others, but also try to be kind to yourself, and don't be afraid to talk/vent to someone when life seems to be too much. -

Paige: Sorry for all the mean things I said. I am so sad I could sing the Dora the explorer theme song. - Kera hicks

Paige Cartwright : 1 day a girl kicked me out of her girls only club. Just because i talked to a boy! I was too scard 2 tell her she was so mean it was scary! Really she never Relished I never cared about her -

Arielle Cohen: I take this pledge quite seriously. Females through out the world need to realize there behavior. We have all done it either by choice or by accident. No matter why or how we need to change it. By taking this pledge, I promise to be conscience of my behavior and apologize immediately to any girl that I commit a girl-on-girl "crime". - Los Angeles

Arielle Cohen : There is not one particular girl I want to apologize to. I think there have been times that I have been mean to a girl and I do not know why. I want to make an effort to be open and kind to any girls I am meeting for the first time. I also want to take this time to apologize for any time I have talked about a girl behind her back, it is not right and no one deserves that kind of the treatment. By saying this apology to any girl I have treated this way I want them to know that I am using this apology to correct my behavior from this day forward. - Any girl I've been mean to

Arielle Cohen: I would never say any girl was out right mean or vicious to me like many girls have experienced. It was more behind my back. I also feel that when you are girl starting at a new school its hard to make friends. Grils are territorial and do not like opening open to new girls that enter into that world. I don't understand why, especially after I joined a sorority. Every sorority I went to during recruitment opened up to me and they had never met me before. Why couldn't girls in high school do the same? -

feather: i sad becaues my bothers -

Britany: To my ex-Sisters: I am sorry that I embarrassed you. I am sorry that I was blinded and unsure of myself. I am sorry that I didn't believe that you could love me for who I really was and thus pretended to be someone else. I am sorry that I wasn't honest. I am sorry for blaming you when so much of the problem was my fault. You are all beautiful women. I honestly hope that you are all just as happy today as I am. - Phi Sig Sisters

Britany: A few days ago, I attended the screening of the Finding Kind documentary in Westminster, Maryland and I was truly moved. I only attended the screening because it was for an assignment for one of my classes at McDaniel College; honestly, I wasn't even sure what the documentary was about. I never expected to be confronted with a story that I have locked away deep within my heart for the past two years. Currently, I am a senior at McDaniel College. Two years ago I was an innocent little sophomore starting my fall semester and really wanting to make some new friends as I was coping with a recent break up. I was living on a "sorority floor" in a dorm and had gotten to know some of the girls from the sorority over the first month or so of the semester. There was another girl on the floor that was not officially a "sister" yet; we decided to go through our campus' "sorority recruitment" process, in hopes of joining the sorority that we were already living with. [In case you're unfamiliar with the "recruitment" process, here's a little background: in order to pledge for a sorority, our campus asks that you get to know all of the sororities on campus before choosing which one you think suits you best. There are three days of "rounds". They start early in the evening and basically the way it works is all of the "potentials" who signed up for recruitment are divided into small groups and they go around and visit each of the sororities. Each round has a different theme and the finale event is "Bid Day" which is when you either get invited ("offered a bid") to a sorority or you do not.] As it turns out, the friend that I had signed up for recruitment with and I were not in the same group. Instead, I was with a bunch of girls that I knew of—heard of, seen around, knew about—for the entire recruitment process. The reason why I knew of them was not just because we were a small campus; it was also because they were the "popular" girls in our class. They always knew where the parties where, everyone knew their names, they were just the girls to watch for our class. Much to my surprise, throughout the recruitment process I had become quite close with those girls. I couldn't believe that girls like that actually liked a girl like me. I had never felt so good about myself. I became really confident and excited; that new-found personality only grew when I was offered a bid into the "Popular Sorority". This sorority was NOT the sorority that I had originally planned on joining because I didn't think there was any way I would ever get offered a bid, but surely enough I did. Additionally I was offered a bid from the sorority that I was living with. Overwhelmed and even blinded by the "Phi Sig Sparkle" I chose to pledge with the sorority that I never thought I stood a chance with: Phi Sigma Sigma. I didn't consider the fact that my friend whom I had signed up for recruitment with (Megan) was not pledging Phi Sig; she decided to join the sorority that we were living with.That was when she and I went our separate ways and my life changed…forever. Bid Day was such a blur. When they called my name and announced me as a Phi Sig. for the first time I was ecstatic. I ran down to the 40 beautiful girls who seemed so incredibly excited about having me be a part of their life. I had never felt so accepted. Along with me were those girls that I went through recruitment with, those "popular" girls that I couldn't believe liked me. We rushed down to the gazebo like a herd of wild animals surrounded by our new Sisters screaming their songs at the top of their lungs. As we entered the gazebo, the "pledges" crowded close together in the center and all of the Sisters stood on the benches and piled in to the jam-packed McDaniel landmark. Suddenly the content of their songs shifted from the sweet little "I am stuck on Phi Sig, 'cuz Phi Sig's stuck on me" to incredibly vulgar, demeaning, explicit songs like "So fuck me, fuck me, fuck me, who the fuck are me? We are Phi Sigma Sigma, the best sorority!" Unsure of how to react I looked at my fellow pledges. Sure, they looked overwhelmed, but in a good way. I felt down right uncomfortable. I didn't talk like that and I wondered would I really be singing those same songs in just a few weeks? That day that I joined Phi Sig was the day that my entire life began to change. Things that I used to feel so strongly against, I began partaking in quite regularly. Case in point, alcohol consumption. All throughout high school and even freshman year I was able to abstain from alcohol, for the most part. I had definitely never been intoxicated and I even criticized my dad quite regularly for drinking so much. To this day, I don't know how exactly I got so out of control. I became obsessed with the idea of fitting in. I wanted everyone to believe that Phi Sig was where I belonged. I drank more and more as the months went on. I was the girl that became the "embarrassment" at parties. Yet, that small group of girls that I pledged with stuck by my side. They would make excuses for me and always be ready to party with me again the next night. Before I knew it, I was spending a significant amount of time drinking alone, in the morning, during class, even in the shower. I went from drinking beer and mixed drinks to drinking hard liquor straight. Vodka in a water bottle seemed to fool everyone—professors, police, and my Sisters. No one knew this secret that I was harboring. No one knew that my immense need to be one of them had reached new levels: I had become an alcoholic. A real, scary, deteriorating alcoholic. At the end of my sophomore year, there was one fateful night that seemed to be the turning point for everyone. In one of my drunken rages, I lost it. To this day, I do not know the details of what happened because I was beyond the point of a blackout. All I know is the next day, no one would talk to me, look at me, or even listen to me. Over the summer and the following fall I had become incredibly depressed. Even though I was finally living with my sorority, I spent most of my time alone, in my room, drinking my troubles away. In October, I took a leave of absence. My depression had gotten to the point where I couldn't get out of bed, go to class, go to work, or function at all. My parents and my doctor told me that I needed to take some time off (despite the fact that they didn't even know about my drinking problem). During my recovery period, I experienced terrible withdrawal. The depression got worse. I left rather abruptly from school—didn't say bye to anyone—and the thing that was killing me the most was that no one had reached out to me. They saw that my room was completely abandoned, empty, and yet no one cared enough to ask me if I was okay. I felt so alone. I realized that I was living in a fantasy world the entire time that I was a Phi Sig. Could it really be possible that I was missing something? Were we really not the greatest of friends in the first place? It seemed like they felt this way about me all along, before our big fight, and now they finally had an excuse to act on their feelings. After an entire month had passed without hearing from a single person from school, I made a terrible decision. I decided that I would rather not live at all than have to live alone. In mid-November of 2010, I overdosed. I swallowed about 60 Lithium tablets—one of the most toxic prescription medications on the market. I was rushed to the hospital where I couldn't stop throwing up. I was dizzy and falling in and out of consciousness. In order to save my life, I had a tube inserted through my nose and down my throat that sucked all of the toxic fluid out of my stomach and was exchanged for a cleansing fluid that was going to restore my body, I was in the Intensive Care Unit for three days. Each day I had to have dialysis because I had done such terrible damage to my kidneys. I spent two weeks in the psychiatric unit (including Thanksgiving) where I recovered from everything. Upon discharge, I still hadn't heard from anyone in my sorority. They didn't even know that I had literally just dodged death because of everything that had happened between us. Yet, I would go on Facebook and see pictures of them at parties and formals and going on like life had never been better. About a month later I received a phone call from our sorority president asking me if I knew if I was going to be returning back to McDaniel the following semester or not. Unsure if I was ready or not, my doctor was not yet ready to make that decision. Unable to give a definite answer, the president gave me two options: 1.) I pay "dues" (the national fee for being in the sorority) and if I return it's paid, and if not, I get no refund or 2.) I don't pay and if I return I would not be allowed to so affiliated with the sorority. Suddenly everything seemed so clear. I realized that for the duration of this conversation, she didn't ask ONCE "By the way, how are you?". No. She didn't care. She cared about paying my dues. And it became so obvious that everyone else probably felt the same. From a distance, it looked like I had fallen off the face of the earth and no one cared. At that exact moment of clarity, I disaffiliated from the sorority. Upon returning the following semester no one knew how to treat me. Most of them ignored my existence entirely, and those who didn't right away, have grown to completely ignore me. When they're not ignoring me, they're whispering, laughing, gossiping, about what happened to the lost Phi Sig. Two years later I have never been happier, healthier, or more successful. I keep busy and don't let interactions with my ex-sisters get the best of me. I have really grown up in a short amount of time. I have seen the ugly side of Girl World and I almost died because of it. Though my entire experience was incredibly painful and even life threatening, I don't regret it at all. I have learned so much about myself and about people in general because of my experience. That was a time of true confusion for me. I had no idea who I was and I was so fixated on being who I thought everyone wanted me to be. Now, I am able to look in the mirror and be happy and proud of who I am. I have so much dignity just by knowing that I am no longer part of the group of girls who walk around campus calling themselves whores and sluts. I have learned that I am better than that. I can only hope that they can see that they are too. -

Meagan: I pledge to think before I speak and act. - Washington, DC

Meagan: I've always been the new girl in school. Being a child of divorced parents and accustomed to arguing and fighting, I didn't really know how to be nice or gentle or how to make friends. In elementary school I got by just being this bossy girl, but inside I hated what I was doing to my friends. I just didn't have anywhere to turn and I didn't know what to do. I went through a lot at home, so it kind of forced me to become very mature at a young age and keep things bottled up; to express myself in ways that weren't always the best. I moved on from that, eventually, but when I transferred to public school, I was so lost. People talked about me, laughed at me, and assumed things about me that ruined my reputation. I had some friends, but I ate lunch alone and came home crying because the things people were saying destroyed me inside. I've been able to recover and cope very well since that year, but now I find myself very insecure. I look in the mirror and hate what I see. Every other girl seems prettier or better than me, and I start to hate everything about myself. There still isn't anyone I can go to, so I try to deal with it internally. I just wish that all the rumors and drama weren't making everything worse. -

Jenny: I'm sorry for getting mad at you. It wasn't right. - Nia

Emily Wachter: Dear old me, I no longer feel alone, sad, mad, stressed out, or nervous. I no longer feel the need to harm myself. Instead, I will write, draw, and make music. I have learned that I’m not alone and there are many people out there like me. I have learned that I don’t need to change or depend on guys for everything. Goodbye to my life of pain and sorrow. To everyone who has ever hurt me, physically or mentally, even though it hurt me at the time, you have made me a strong and a mature person. Goodbye anger. I now know when I get angry to walk away and count to ten and then confront whoever or whatever I have a problem with. Goodbye depression. You will no longer make me feel sad, angry, worried, or fearful. You no longer hold me back. You no longer have my confidence. You no longer keep me away from God and Christ. You no longer keep me up at night. You no longer have control over any aspect of my life. Goodbye depression and anger; you’re gone. Sincerely, New me -

Louisa: In 5th grade I was bullied. In my class, I had two of my best friends and we would do everything together, always. One day though, they went to the office to get something for our teacher and I decided to look through one of their desks because she had a big bag in it. I looked in the plastic bag and I saw tons and tons of sticky notes. I started to read them and i soon realized that they were all about me. How stupid I was, how ugly I looked one day, how my hair is always frizzy. I couldn't take it, I just started bawling in the middle of class and ran to the bathroom. These two girls were my best friends and I just felt so betrayed and alone. The rest of the year in that class they isolated me, I was never good enough for them. It made me feel like it was my fault too. They blamed me for the notes they wrote. Its been about 4 years since this incident and I am friends with the girls. We're not as close as we were but we are on speaking terms. They have apologized and it is better.. My message to girls who are being bullied is to stay strong because it all eventually comes to an end. -

Courtney: I was bullied mostly in middle school, always being on the outside and never in the "in crowd". I tried my hardest to not let it affect me and stay strong, but it was not easy. I have always felt as if I have never had that one good friend until high school. I lost that friend to suicide putting me in a place where I felt even more alone. For the rest of high school I never found that friend again and I went through so many friends. I finally found one good friend again in College and pulling through everything in middle school and high school got me to where I am and I am very grateful now. -

Julia: I have been bullied this entire school year. Three girls in my school have succeeded in turning most of the school against me and two of my friends. I have had someone dump a jumbo pixie stick in my book-bag. The sticky sugar was all over my books and homework assignments. These girls also used an English assignment to write nasty stories about me and my friends. When we had dances at school the bullies instructed the boys in our school not to dance with me and my friends. The girls accuse me and my friends of things we didn't do. Finally, I brought a diary to school and one of the bullies brought it home and showed her mother. I didn't write anything threatening in the book, but the bullies tried to get me kicked out of school. They went as far as calling the police on me. I have been asked to get counseling for depression. I have been out of school for one week. I am not suspended, but the school principal is getting a lot of pressure from the bullies parents not to have me return. When my parents asked the school when I can return to school the principal suggested that I not return to school. I have done nothing wrong, but I am being treated very meanly. I told my mom I was never depressed, but since I have been targeted by these girls I feel awful. -

Avery: These two girls constantly made fun of me, and called me rude names. To my face, they were nice, but behind my back, they'd spread rumors and try to destroy me. When I had surgery, it was crucial for me not to get hit, and these girls threw basketballs at my operated area on purpose, pretending it was an accident. Eventually, I had enough. I confronted them and told them how I didn't appreciate what they were doing. I told them to cut it out, because I wasn't afraid and I didn't care what they said. Sure, we aren't friends..but I stood up for myself, and now they do not dare bother me anymore. -

Cami: I'm sorry for telling all your secrets to the school after we stopped being friends. Sorry for calling you a cross-eyed slut. Even though no one like you anyways and talked shit already I didnt have to instigate and make it worse. I was just mad that we weren't friend anymore after all the time I had spent standing up for you. and now that we're adults and completely moved on with our lives I hear you're struggling with addiction. I'm sorry we messed you up that bad. - Rachel

Jackie Marshall: I pledge to be kinder to my family and friends. - Buffalo NY

Megan: In the 4th and 5th grade I was literally the biggest bitch to people because I finally became popular, if that makes sense. During the time, being popular was so important and it was everything a girl at my school would want to be. I started just being so mean to people I didn't even realize how bad things got. I just wish I could take back those years and say sorry to everyone whose feelings I hurt. -

Amanda DeVaul: I lie to all of my friends about my weight because i dont want them to laugh at me -

Katie M.: I am so so so so so sorry for calling you names and talking about you behind your back. I know your story and I should support you and not put you down. I will always be here for you and I love you with all of my heart. But sometimes I just get super jealous because you are really pretty and skinny and all the boys look at you even though you don't notice...and whenever you are hurting, I hurt. And that's how it has always been since the sixth grade. I LOVE YOU TAYLOR - Taylor W<3

Katie M.: Hi my name is Katie. I am 14 years old and this is my story... In the 7th grade my dad had a motorcycle crash. He was hit by a truck and he almost died. I cried and I did something really stupid. I had always known people who cut themselves and I saw people on tv that did it. I thought it might help me. I cut the upper part of my right arm. No one knew about it, and it kind of helped me focus on something else that really hurt me. You know, physical pain rather than internal pain. I didn't cut again until the beginning of 8th grade. My two best friends randomly turned on me. They gained up on me and were texting me really rude thing. I cried for hours. At lunch they started whispering about me and it really hurt. I can't remember exactly what I was thinking but I immediately grabbed my pizza box in front of me and ripped a piece off and began slicing my right wrist up. Then I ran into the bathroom and made myself throw up. I started to really judge myself and I thought I was really fat, so I stopped eating, and I lost about 30 pounds over 1 month. I was really unhealthily skinny and it was gross. It made me feel way worse knowing that I was so underweight, so I started eating again and the girls and I worked it all out. Around January, my best friend got upset over a guy. She knew some girls from my school that cut. And so she decided she would too. She shredded her wrists up and I cried for her. Everyone blamed it on me because the guy liked me and not her, so I cut. I cut my right wrist up really badly and I carved, "LUV", "P", and "T" into my arm. (LUV because I was having relationship problems, P because that was the first letter of my boyfriends name, and T because Taylor was the girl that cut herself really badly and she even tried to commit suicide but I called her mom before she did anything) Eventually my mom found out and she was really upset. She told me I needed to stop and I needed to get help. But the thing was, I couldn't just stop. I liked cutting. It helped me be calm and to be honest, it didn't hurt at all. I got a therapist and I lie to her face and my moms. I have cut again because of drama and because of my mom and dad. At one point, I had this boy, who I was dating, call me a bitch, slut, and whore. I was so hurt because I thought he loved me and I thought that he was supposed to be the person that made me feel good about myself. But all he did was hurt me. Now he won't even talk to me. I cut again because of it. And it bled out every where; on my sheets, on my clothes, and on a rag. My cuts are all over my body; 1 on my left thigh, 2 on my left calve, 6 and a heart on my right thigh, 1 on my right hip, 3 on my left hip, 5 on my right wrist, 1 on my right bicep, 30 on my left wrist, 7 on my left arm, and 4 on my left bicep. You do the math... It's a lot and I can't wear shorts or short sleeves without being afraid of being judged. I am scared of everyone now and I can't trust anyone except my very best friend in the whole entire world, Hannah. Sometimes I think that she is the only person in the world that actually cares about me... I am slowly getting better and I'm cutting less and less. Many people are praying for me and it really helps me with my fight to completely stop cutting. -

Natalie Peterson: The truth is, I hang out with more guys than girls because girls CAN be catty and mean. I was the quiet and shy girl from Elementary school to High school. But I'm really not quiet. I love being kind to others, and I wish girls could see that I would love to be their friends and have girl talk and hang out. But I also wish that girls didn't feel like they have to be rude and catty to others. We are all trying to survive and we all need friends. -

Rie: I apologize to my BFF for not being as close to her as I should have sometimes. From now til forever I will be more truthful to you! - Nimie

Madeline: When I was in fourth grade, there were two different groups of girls and my best friend that bullied me. They wouldn't leave me alone, they just kept mocking me and telling me I was weird. My best friend ignored me, she wouldn't even talk to me. When I asked her why she said, "Cuz you are a nerd, and I don't want people to think I am a nerd, too. Plus you hang out with Abby." Abby was the other girl who was bullied more than anyone, but she stood up for me, and I still and very thankful she did that, even though it didn't help much, I still felt like I had at least one friend who still cared. -

Maxine Devaux: I have been harassed about my weight and clothing since 5th grade. I have attempted suicide twice and have been fighting cutting for almost a year. Even though I may not feel it, I still know that there is hope somewhere, thanks to this campaign. -

Leslie: I am sorry for what I have done to, well, just anyone. I am sorry if I have talked behind your back, lied to you, or been just plain mean. I hope you all can forgive me. - Everyone

Leslie: I pledge not to talk about anyone behind their backs. No matter how mean they might be or what they've done. I will think about what I say before I say it. I will reflect on my day and apologize right away when I do something wrong or mean. -

Erin: There is a girl who dislikes me, and always has. She used to pretend to be my friend, but to tell my boyfriends or friends things about me that weren't true. I have slowly lessened my contact with her, and no longer talk to her at all. However, our school is doing a Kind Campaign fashion show with the help of Glamour and Glow, and I signed up. Today I realized that the girl who used to say nasty things to me and spread rumors about me is signed up. I really hope she learns something from this experience. But, I just don't see her taking anything from it. I just hope she doesn't hate anyone else as much as she hates me. -

Megan: I am in the 5th grade. I am constantly bullied about my full cheeks and lips and a thick nose. people call me ''Angelina Jolie Gone Wrong"," Onion Nose", and "Chipmunk cheeks".

Elle: I am so sorry for calling you a biotch. The moment after I said it, I felt guilty and terrible.

Jen: A group of my friends threw a sleepover party, to which they did not invite me, and voted about whether or not they wanted to remain friends with me. It's so immature that it sounds like a story from middle school or even younger--we're seniors in high school and it happened this year. -

Thank you for everything you have done for me. - Gwyn

Annette B.F.: In sixth grade, I thought I had the most nicest friend in the world. She would always meet me in the hallways before school and just hangout and talk about what we did last night when we weren't texting each other. People always thought we were a weird pair because I was 5'5 and she was 4'10. i had long brunette hair and she had shortish blonde hair. I has and still am a TOTAL tomboy and she is the defention of a girly-girl. One day she wanted me to be more like her. I asked her "Why? Don't you like me for how I am? I mean thats what friends do right?" She said "Yeah, but people are giving you looks when you are with me and I don't like how they look at me like that too. So we are going to make you girly. You are going to dress more like me and act more like me." I said "um..NO. I like who I am and if you don't like it then I'm sorry." At that moment I felt my stomach drop to the floor because right after I said that she said "Fine. Then I can't be with you anymore. I'll find a new best friend who isn't secretly a dude and who is mature enough to listen to someone's adivse." I remember I thought that everyone was staring at me that morning because I just broke up with who I thought was my best friend. Later she found a new friend, who is now one of my closest friends that I have ever made. The girl who bullied me who drag her new friend around like a dog and whisper stuff about me behind my back about how I'm such a whore and thats why I wear pants, because I'm forced to cover up and how I'm a bitch for being mad at her. It took me a lot of courage to say to her. "I don't appreciate you stabbing me in the back like that. It was not ok and stop spreading rumors about me." To this day she still treats me like dirt but then I think about the one friend I gained out of the situation and how I learned what a true friend is. If Gwyn F, Ashleigh M, Meredith T, Dani S, or Aoife M is reading this, you taught me what it means to be a friend.. If Amelie D is reading this, I just wished you would accept me for who I was and still am. -

LIB: It's highly unlikely that you'll even read this, which is probably why I'm fine with writing it.

I don't know why we don't do stuff together much anymore, but can that please stop? - EDC

heidi: i have been bullied since 3rd grade. everyone always made me feel like i wasnt important to anyone and i felt alone. i had no friends until 5 grade when i moved to a different state. i was deeply depressed and felt like nothing, my friends tried to change that and almost got me going again. i finally started telling bullies "you know what? i am my own person and nothing will bring me down anymore. you've done it once and trust me, it wont happen again." -

Brey: I pledge, To smile at everyone, because you do not know when it is saving a persons life. I've herd stories, about people committing suicide and they said they wouldn't if a single person smiled at them. And no one ever would. To not judge a person just by what you hear and see because not all the time is it true. You don't where they have been or what they are going through, you can make a difference. You can even save a life. It's cool to be kind. - Washington

Jaclyn: I Started liking a boy that my friend ,who was like family liked.Well Behind her back i hung out with him and Ended up kissing him, we ended up dating after all the drama.

Elizabeth: I first started getting bullied in kindergarten. A fifth grade girl would always push me around when ever she saw me. I tried to tell an adult but no one helped me. In second grade I met a girl who in third grade tried to take away all my friends she kept trying until sixth grade. She did this to me because i conforted a girl she make cry every recess who she called her friend.   Forth and fifth grade I was bullied by another girl physically and emotionally and I didn't stand up to her because I was scared of her. All through this time and even until now ive been called ugly fat bitch stupid loner and many more. I didn't become depressed though. I started to become friends with others who needed someone. I helped them find their voice and just was there for them. This summer I moved across Washington and left all my friends. I have been made fun of and am now the new girl who has 3 friends.  -

Olivia R.: I am soooo, soooooooo sorry. Lat year I stuck my nose in a place that I shouldn't have and I know that I really hurt you and I'm sorry for that. It wasn't my place to take a side in that fight and I'm glad that we're friends again. - Payton C.

In Debt to Tiffany: I wake up I don't eat breakfast Just push my food around my plate, restless, feeding the dog what should be mine as my parents watch and wonder why I'm not chewing. School awaits, that horrible place, of what I was and want to be, but can't seem to achieve. Lunch arrives my stomach pleads with me, but there's my other half yelling and angry. I cannot eat. I cannot eat. It hurts either way. I push my plate away. School continues I'm too cold to think. There's a chill inside deep in my bones. My friend Tiffany, she confronts me, with an afternoon snack. My stomach rumbles my mouth waters and guilt thunders at me. I do not eat. I nibble at my dinner the food in front of me nothing but a calorie count. Bedtime comes I catch my face in the mirror. My eyes are sunken into my head, ugly and inhuman, like something dead. Skin stretched over bones my heart breaks a new I'm all alone. My hair is stringy not like it used to be. I'm ugly. I hear my parents through the wall as they debate what to do about my weight they talk of doctors and their cold tools They discuss therapy; a brain autopsy. I try to sleep but I'm too hungry so I go running until I'm tired. Morning comes black smudges under my eyes. Breakfast comes I eat four bites. My head screams at me, calls me fat asks do I really want to go back to a smelly fat lump in the corner? What I want is that evil conscience gone, that half dead face, these cold bones, this body. Gone. School passes by We're handed back a test. I failed. Why, oh why? Do I, have to be this way? PE is agony, the other girls, they see, poor ugly, bony me. My conscience and my skeleton. In science we learn of the universe. Anorexia Nervosa that word is scrawled on a paper, thrown at me. Anorexia Nervosa It sounds like a constellation, or maybe, I'm confused with Andromeda. I wish I was her she was the daughter of the most beautiful lady and was so pretty, a guy fell in love at his first sight. That, we learned in humanities. I spend lunch in the library hiding from the food, and Tiffany. I look up Andromeda and loose myself in the life so much better than mine. After lunch is sixth I skip with a note from the counselor. They give me a lecture I listen to what they say, through the screams of the other half of me. Poor grades they say, every teacher's worried. And my health, well for that I'm stuck here, every lunch. They want to control my weight, but don't they know it's the one thing I control. My grades I have lost my life has left the one thing remaining is my power to make that scale needle go steadily down. I'm strong enough to take charge of that one element in my life when every other thing about me has taken its own flight. My parents arrive, with the counselor and the principle. Their stern voices grate against my tired, ugly ears. Unhealthy weight. I do not eat. I'm ugly. I want the voices to stop, on my ears, and in my head. "Is this what you tell me?" The evil conscience says "Do you really want to loose me? Then you'll be a sweaty, fat, pig, eating everything." My parents take me home, in a car of worried silence. Nothing but me, and that menace, who's trapped beneath my skull. They ask if I'm hungry, If I'm fine, if I need--- I'm fine. This is the lie I say. I'm fine. This is not what I want. I cry, silently. why me? I eat a little dinner, hearing nothing but her. "You don't deserve this." "You're a hideous glutton, eating so much." "You make me sick." "You, nauseating...thing." I'm fine. Painful hours roll by same as always. People wave hi, to each other, not to me. At this rate, Tiffany, she's the only friend I have who hasn't deserted me. She tells me I have a problem. She calls it Anorexia. I am numb. I am fine. I am not Anorexic. We learned about eating disorders in 5th grade way back then, I never thought, I'd be one of them. I do not want it Maybe if I deny it it'll go away. I listen wordlessly and wish I could be not here, not me. The bell rings. We are in the girl's bathroom I hear the others going to class But, apparently, I am more important than that, to Tiffany. Tears roll down my sunken cheeks, Hateful words swim through my head. And I say the words I haven't said in far too long. "I'm hungry." -

Syndy: I'm 48 years old and still remember how much being bullied in 8th grade hurt. I was the new kid in school and made a great girlfriend, who was new also. We did everything together, then one day the cool girls started hanging out with her and she tried out for cheerleader. Instead of just making new friends and gracefully leaving me behind, she told them all sorts of things about me and the group of 4 of them tormented me for years. They never tired of it. I tried laughing it off and walking away. I didn't give them a reaction. They didn't give up. I had a new best friend who just stood by me and never mentioned it. She never talked back to them or stood up for me outwardly, but she did stay my friend. Our 30 year highschool reunion was this year and I didn't go because those same 4 girls were the organizers. Can't believe after all I have achieved and accomplished in my life that this still stings. -

Audrey: She would always be my friend when I was the only one there. But only when I was the only one there. Every time her popular friends would come she would just walk away from me and make fun of me. I loved her when she was alone with me, but not when her friends were. -

Nina: Anorexic. Bitch. Slut. Ugly. Whore. Wannabe. I've been called all those names. I'm 13. No one should go through that at 13 but I guess there's a time and place for everything. I felt gross, and when I looked in the mirror all i saw was an anorexic bitch. The girls who hurt me drove me insane. I couldn't escape them. They were at school and when they weren't physically around they were on Facebook and twitter. I thought I let it go but at my finding kind class I cried in front of all the girls at my school, and they did too. I found that the most secure people were sorry for things they've said and done. We were finally unified and one class didn't cut it. We all needed to share more. Every tear was meant for something that hurt inside and what shocked me is how much people hurt. -

Kellyn: Ok, well I haven't been affected by girl to girl, but more like mother to girl. My mother is down right evil. I still love her, but what she is doing to me is wrong. Her favorite form of "punishment" for me, is to slap me across the face several times, then pull me up to standing by my hair. And why I cry do to the pain, not the physical pain, but the mental, she just gets worse. And that was at the beginning. Now, it's worse. It seems that if I even give one wrong look, she goes nuts. If I get a 59% and not a 60% (60% is passing, 59% is failing) she'll get an email report, and then goes nuts on me. Any place I try to make a "safety" zone, it gets ripped to shreds. Not by her though, but by others. So, I have no place left to try to hide, to heal, so I get her full "assaults." the only way I was able to "release" the stress that She had placed on me, was to put it onto somebody else. But that led to more problems, which led back to more fighting. I get no help from my other family members. My father is out at sea, my step dad can help, but chooses not to, instead he hurts even more (I can hear him calling me stupid, and a lot of other things down the hall) My mother's mother, is worse then she is, my step-dad's mother hates my mother, my Father's mother has 3 grand-kids, so she doesn't really care. My friends don't know, since I can't bring my self to say this to them. The only person who can help is the adults at school who I'm friends with, but I don't think they really want to get involved with "family" matters. So, I'm left standing on my own, against her. I have all these things I want to say to her, all this pain I want her to feel, But I know that if I should do it, it would just rebound onto me, even worse. I still love my mother, and I don't want to leave her, but I just want to tell her to stop, with out getting hurt. Which, that really isn't an option anymore. I know I will get hurt, one way, or another. If I do nothing, I'll get hurt, if I stand up, I'll get hurt even worse. Help? -

Lauren Couch: For reasons that I don't know, I never seem to be able to make friends, true friends. I really wish that would change as time passes. -

Gabrielle Ferdeaneto: I called my friend Shalyn a butthead and then she threw a book at me and it hurt really bad -

Allie A.: I pledge to be a nicer freind and to not gossip about my "friends". - Laguna Beach

Nikki G.: I am sorry for whenever I am jealous of you, or if i have ever spread rumors about you. - Allie A.

Allie A.: I am sorry for sending you those mean texts. I know that we already made up but I still want to say sorry. Thank you for being a great friend. - Nikki G.

Karen : I wasn't what you would call fully "bullied". However, I was affected when I was 11 years old. I had a very "close" friend that would also hangout with my arch enemy. I didn't like all, but I dealt with it for my friends sake. But my friend started spending more time with my enemy and it bugged me, I felt I was losing my friend. Being a girl, I did get mad at her over text and told her how I felt that my rival wasn't a good influence on her. My friend tossed me like old news after that. She was hanging around with my enemies crew and could care less about me. Her new friends would give me looks and would say little side comments to me that would send me home crying everday. I didn't want to go to school. I even had thoughts about running away. How I wished I could take back what I said. I got stronger though because I had a true friend stand by me the whole time. That summer, I was going into middle school and I got a stomache ache just thinking about it. I was seperating from my closest friend, my dad was going overseas, and just everything about middle school scared me. About a week before school started, I got these "anonumus" text messages telling me how "dumb", "stupid", "bossy", and what a "bitch" I was. I figured out later that it was my old friend saying all that to me. I was hurt, but it also told me that I have better things than her. I had true friends and family that stuck by my side and didnt call me a "bitch" or "dumb". When school started everything got better. We forgot all about the incident becuase we had more to worry about with school work. Were not as good of friends as we were, but now we smile and talk to eachother unlike after our fight. My main message is to tell girls who are getting bullied that it all gets better, belive me. -

Aly: I'm sorry for being such a jerk to you. Sisters shouldn't treat sisters that way. I should treat you with respect and love. You are just such an amazing girl, and you don't deserve what I've done to you. I love you, Abbi!! - Abbi

Aly: I pledge to not put anyone down with my words or actions and to stand up for those who are being bullied. - Gig Harbor

Aly Robbins: Fifth grade was awful to me! I was the new girl in school, and I knew that everyone hated me from the start. There was one girl in particular though, who instilled such fear in me that I didn't even want to go to school some days. She lead her group of girls around, hating on me and giggling about me behind my back. I had just been silly one day... I didn't do anything too bad! I heard them. They knew it. I think they wanted me to hear them. Another girl, Steph, she became my friend. We had fun together. Everyone hated also because she hung out with me, but she didn't care. That is until she became friends with the mean girl. Steph turned on me one day, and she also became a source of fear to me. They all hated me. I was broken. I wanted my parents to take me out of school. It didn't stop in middle school either. Steph continued to be my friend one week and start hating on me the next, dragging others with her. It wasn't until 8th grade that she decided to become my friend for good... and we have been BEST friends ever since! I am in 10th grade now. -

Alyssa: My parents always ask me why I hang out with boys more than girls. I never really had an answer til I saw your documentary, I realized that You are right girls are mean the only real friends that I have that are girls are two people, Olivia, and Felicia...the rest are boys, my parents don't understand...When I first moved to where I am now I didn't know anybody; a girl across my street seemed nice til later on in the year I found out that she will turn on you for popularity and just to get what she wants, including the guy. I felt unloved by friends and family I didn't have a good relationship with my mom at the time so I could never talk to her so i never her told her the stuff that went on in my life, But when people really started to be mean, untruthful, unjust, and unkind, I let it go and almost hung myself, I couldn't take the pain, it was an emotional tole that was tearing my life apart, but my best friends, Felicia, and Olivia lifted me from my weights of my destruction and lead me to know that I will have friends and that I do, But the pain from the past always drags me down.... -

Anna: I am so sorry for being mean to you in 5th grade. I was just jealous of you and Mckenna I felt like you were taking my friend away. I am so sorry for treating you that way.You probably forgot about it, but I didnt. I am so sorry. - Cece

Brianna: My best friend is also my worst enemy. I love her, she's the only person who's stuck by me through everything. But she's the kind of person that has the power to make or destroy your whole day by just a few words. She constantly makes subtle comments about what I'm eating, what I'm wearing, everything. And it tears down my confidence because she is literally perfect. -

Erin: Well there was this girl at my old school and she tell me that my face was scrude up and that my eye brows were ugly and she was my best friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so I plucked my eye brows and made them really pretty in my oppinion but they were all scrude up!!!!!! Then when I started Middle school I thought things were going to be different. I tried to hang out with the "COOL GROUP" but they all hated me. There was this girl named Jadie the sweetest friend any one could ever have but I thought I was toooo cool for her but she was the best friend anyone could ever have but I treated her like TRASH!!!!!! I COULD NEVER DO ANYTHING THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO SHOW HOW MUCH IM SOOOOO SORRY FOR THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -

Erin: Im sorry for being mean and thinking that you were toooo wierd to be friends with me. I never should have treated you that way because to tell you the truth I think I kinda treated you like trash I feel soo bad. Your better than all those popular girls because even though I treated you badly you never ever did anything like that to me. I'm sooooooooooooooooooo sorry!!!!! - Jadie

Laura: I spend a lot of time online blogging, which has connected me with many girls all over the world. Even though I have never met any of them, I love them all and consider them true friends. Every once in a while, someone who I may have never talked to, or I may be great friends with, admit that they are suicidal and depressed. We always tell them that they deserve better, that we love them and they are worth so much. But one girl said, "I appreciate all of your kind words, but sadly, those who I know in real life, outside the internet, do not agree. I am not worth anything to them or to my family, and I love you all, but you are on the other side of the world, and I am alone here." She took her own life that night, and I am afraid that sending kind messages and love across the internet isn't enough all the time. I want to shake the people from her school, her family, and her bullies, make them realize that they have lost something with that girl. That the world has lost something. -

Remelou: Well, this girl in our school tells me to fuck off her life just because I'm the 1st in the class. And she said a lot of bad things to me. -

Your Name: I pledge to be more kind to people. - City

Stacy: Being a mother of daughters is a huge responsibility in today's climate. I pledge to continue to do my best to raise nice's a damn hard job. Thanks for all you have done to get the ball rolling... - Denver

Stacy: I am the mother of two daughters--aged 16 and 17. Over the years I have seen plenty of incidences where they have been on both ends of girl-on-girl crimes. But what led me to your website was the latest incident with my 16-year-old which didn't just involve another girl but her mother too. If mothers are teaching and encouraging girl-on-girl crime by allowing their daughters to be exclusive, catty, and nasty then we are in for a long haul. I applaud your starts with ONE girl (or ONE mother) to stand up for change. I'd love to see this change in my lifetime...thank you for raising the bar... -

Megan: I pledge to be nicer to all the people I know, even the mean ones and to stand up for anyone I see being bullied or harrassed. - Mobile, AL

Megan: I'm sooooo sorry about suzanne & me calling you all those mean names... You started dating like every guy that asked you out and you wore this really short red dress with converse and trey started a rumour that you let every guy feel you up and you sucked every guys dick in the girls bathroom... You moved because everyone wasnt nice to you and your mom because your dad committed suicide and I just felt so bad because part of me was like thank god and another part of me was saying this is your fault you were apart of why she moved... So I'm super sorry and i hope we can be friends again. - Samantha

Megan: 2 of my friends and I were best friends like the 3 muskateers. Friend 1, she started dating the guy friend 2 secretly liked, and they got in this huge fight and made me pick sides and I said that I wasn't going to pick sides and that if they were really friends they would make up and stuff and they got mad at ME and started calling me a bitch and a slut and that i was only friends with them to become popular because I was too ugly to become popular. It was soo sad... I was embarressed to go to school somedays and other days I would be so glad to go because i remembered the friends i had... One of my friends apologized and we are best friends now but the other friend still hates me... -

Anonymous : her life isn't great her mother a drug addict , Father careless and violent. So to sum it up her life isn't to great but i've always been the best friend i ever could possible to her just her. She thinks i am her slave she doesn't want me doing anything else but following her around and doing nothing more than solving her problems and telling her how great she is. When we are in an argument she decides when its over,she decides what i say, who i can be friends with and and what i do. I don't want to be her friend but obviously i don't decide that either. When we are in an argument she just goes off and tells anyone she can think of every secret i have ever told her so what would it be like if i wasn't her friend at all? If i had any choice at all should i be her friend if i know exactly what she will do if I'm not her friend? -

Maddie: A girl at my camp had aspergers. All the other girls and guys made fun of her behind her back and wouldn't talk or sit next to her. When they did talk to her, they said sarcastic comments which secretly made fun of her but she had no idea. I should have done something...but I didn't. And I regret every second of it. -

Jenny: I've been bullied by a group of girls since 4th grade because of my race and this year I've decided to stick up for myself but I did that in a horrible way. Now there is more tension between us then ever before. -

A nobody thats going to start being someone: I have always felt ugly or below others but the thing is it really does not matter. I used to look in the mirror and think why do i have to look like this... but i have decided i am going to change. i am going to love myself and love others! Life is to short to hate... I dont want to wast one more second feeling bad for myself. I am officially proud of every flaw and love myself. Perfect is overraided. I am going to start reaching out to others who i feel might be having a hard time, Thanks to yall i am changing for the good. Please Pray that i will be able to stay strong... it will be hard but it will be AWESOME when i suceed! Thanks girls! i cannot thank yall enough! i love yall and you have probably saved more lives than you can count with what yall are doing. God Bless -

Jensen: I'm sorry for being weird and annoying. I'll try to cam down. I'm sorry for trying to have a little attention. I'm sorry if I spazed out. - All my friends

Jensen: One time this girl and "my best friend" wrote a note to me that was 2 pgs long front and back and it had all the things they thought were wrong with me. another time the same girls and some other girls made up this girl (who was really me) just so they could talk about me in front of my face. and this girl its like every time i get a best friend she takes her from me. no joke. and she is very immature and i know i can be annoying but i'd rather be annoying than be mean. we had finding kind preview at our school the other day and im almost positive it didnt affect her in any way. i know yall say everyone has a story to why they r so mean but shes not bullied at home or anything shes spoiled rotten and it really ticks me off cuz i have to work hard to get what i want but she just gets evrything handed right to her. -

sharon: Im sorry for calling you a stupid wierdo i hope we can be friends -

Sara: I'm sorry I talked about you behind your back and then never said I'm sorry - Daphne

Sara: I'm sorry I stole your lover. - Nellie

Francis: My daughter was called Fat this past week. She is 8years old. I saw first hand how strong she is when she told me. I could also feel how she lost a small piece of her that day. I could only hold her and tell her that girls can be mean and in time things can and will be better. -

That was 20 years ago and i still think about it everyday and wish i knew what i did to you to make you so angry at me. maybe i should know but i dont and i wish one day someone will tell me so i can understand -

Sydney: I'm sorry I talked behind your back, called you names, and weren't always my nicest. I didn't act like the best friend that I should be. Truth is, I'm just really jealous of you. You're tan, blonde, you have all the friends, you have the boyfriend and all the guy friends, you're a cheerleader, you look awesome all the time with no effort, and everybody loves you. - Ann Bradley

Chloe: When I was in seventh grade two people I thought were my really good friends told me they didn't want to be my friend for three reasons but I can't remember them exept one: that they didn't like how I talked loudly. I then cried for the next 10 minuets and walk to my next class with people asking if I was ok , i said I was fine when all I wanted to do was go home. Once in class this girl who was one of "those" girls who was mean to me asked if I was ok. In that moment my take on her changed. She's not as mean as I thought. -

allie: im sorry bestfriend for hurting you so much i love you so much - olivia

allie: In about fourth grade i started devolpeing way faster than everyone else i was very very tall and just bigger than everyone and i really stuck out in the crowd, everyday for about 3 months.One day before we got off school for break all i can rember is all the mean girls saying "you must be glad were on break so you can just go home and eat and eat and eat." that hurt and whenever we got back to school they had made up the cruel cruel name the whale. one day we were drawing and they drew a picture on the white board for the whole class to see that had a very large circle labeled with my name and abunch of sayings like i cant see my toes and why am i so huge. also they would always just look me up and down and laugh.Also they drew a notecard of me and just laughed about it, i took up the whole note card. its been 4 years but i still canot get over it, everyday i look in the mirroir and wonder why they said that, because it follows me around everywhere i go. its why im so self concious. i still know the mean girls i sit next to one of them in english i cant look at her the same. fourth grade was the worst year of my life and i truley wanted to die. -

Meghan H.: Dear all the popular people at my school.. including Sam, Amber, Gina... I am sorry for ever talking about you behind your backs... even though i was talking about all the mean things you have done. - Sam Amber Gina

Meghan Hanlon: My name is Meghan... Here is my story. It all started in 6th grade when this girl named Sam. Were werent that close until she started to get bullied by all of her freinds. First, I was the only one who really stood up for her. Then my freinds helped her out. We were all becomming so close... when it happened. One january day, all the popular girls that hated sam invited her back into the group, totally excluding me and my friends. I felt crushed ... She apologized... i sadly forgave her, even tho it wasnt a true apology. 7th grade was Ok... but at the end of the year she called me a terrible actress and put all of my friends down and started rumors about all us. Now its 8th grade and she and the popular group have basically ostrasized me from their entire group. We just watched the movie and they all hugged me while i cried and said sorry... but i dont know if they were being true or not... since they lied b4... idk what to do -

Claire Randolph : I've spent 10 years with an eating disorder. A couple years after it first developed, I was at my lowest weight. One of the girls in my old school purposely called me fat, "Little Debbie Cakes", and many other derogatory names. As my illness progressed and it became more noticeable, she then began telling everyone about my illness (something which she knew nothing about the truth of). I used to wish that she'd get fat, become friendless, and even develop disordered eating habits. … Years later, I dropped out of my highschool, went into homeschooling and graduated eary. I'm in college now, and at a close friend's wedding, I was a bridesmaid with this girl that had spent so many years making my life hell. The night of the bachelorette party, all of us girls met up to get together. Everything I had wished on her had become true. I overheard her talking to our friend getting married that she suffers from binge eating disorder (her bridesmaid dress no longer fit compared to a month ago), as a means to cope with the death of her father when she was a child…. My father passed away the year I graduated highschool. While you see no error in how you treated me and so many other girls in gradeschool, I'm sorry that all of the horrible things I wished on you came true. You and I are have more things in common than I'd ever care to voice aloud. I hope you find your way out of this dark tunnel. There's light on the other end. I'm sorry we never talked to one another. I feel like maybe we could've helped each other out, if things had even been just the slightest bit different. -

Amoya: One day we were at school in an assembly and I was shouting good job to the people who got awards and this girl starts talking to another girl about me and I said to my friend what's er problem and she just turned around and talked more and more about me and inside I felt really hurt and betrayed because we were friends and now I feel like she's my enemy.When girls go behind your back and start talking about you just say "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me!" -

Julie: I pledge to be kind and to say something nice to at least three people everyday. -

Savanna: No one deserves to be treated poorly. Many girls at my school are, and that's not a good thing. Being put down and bullied doesn't feel good. Everyone deserves to be treated kindly. Just because people look different, doesn't mean its a bad thing. We should stand up for each other, not put each other down. I know how it feels. We do this to each other. We have all been victims. -

Savanna: I pledge to treat other with kindness and respect. To treat others how I want to be treated. - Stow

Student at Niguel Hills: I go to Niguel Hills Middle School and I got bullied by one kid, and today, when the video was on people stood up for me and I stood up for myself, and that one person apologized, thank you so so much, I don't get bullied but I stood up for the people that did. I also saw a lot of girls hugging and apologizing. I know you guys used to go to my school and I think that you know the atmosphere, it is so great that people stand up for you. Keep up the good work. -

ANHE: I am sad because I and my clasmate were fighting each other. -

Nicole Maniez: As a woman in my thirties who has a daughter and works with youth, it breaks my heart to remember the confusion and struggle of growing up. Having been on both sides of mean, today I work to create space for girls and women to explore their membership in sisterhood and community... what it means to raise up yourself and others. Together we stand stronger. Let us forgive each other and ourselves. Let us support each others brilliance. -

R: I know you're not going to read this, but i'm sorry I stopped talking to you. I don't have a reason, and it's idiotic, but I don't. I didn't mean to stop being friends with you, being friends isn't like being in a relationship, you don't just break it off. I'm an awful person for what I did, but I'm glad you'll still ask me what period is next in school. Atleast you still talk to me. - A

Sophia: I am so sorry for telling Carley about your family. You trusted me and I broke that, I am not going to get in specifics because that would only tell more people.

It's not even your fault and I know you did nothing wrong and I hope you know that everything I've ever said that was mean is a lie.

Katy Lund: She hates me, we've been best friends since 1st grade, and she hates me because her ex-boyfriend likes me. I didn't ask him to like me, I don't want him to like me, this isn't my fault and she's telling people that I ruin her day whenever she see's me. What did I do? How can I possibly fix this? I don't understand what I did wrong. -

Erin: I pledge to try my best to treat others the way I want my daughter and myself treated. I accept that I am not perfect, so when I slip up, I will do my best to make ammends. - LaFayette, NY

Erin: I am an adult, mother of a young girl, PTA member and a Girl Scout leader. All through Elementary, High School and even as an adult in the workplace, I was bullied. The worst agressors were always female. One day they were your bffs, sharing secrets and braiding your hair. The next, your secrets were being whispered as you walked down the hall toward a girl who was waiting to challenge you to a fight or who would later ambush you as you walked home from school.(Or spreading rumors at work to prevent you from getting a promotion.) It is more than 20 years since the abuse began and I still have scars. I WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO MY DAUGHTER!!! I have seen girls as young as Kindergarten repeating this pattern. It is no mystery where this is learned, as I have witnessed it among the "mature" Moms of the PTA and have even had "adults" mock other mom's daughters at Girl Scout meetings. The only changes are that there are now MORE and EASIER ways to be mean. It has taken becoming a mother for me to stand up and even at first, it was only as a "Momma Bear." Standing up for myself came much later. I pray that I am a good example for my daughter and my scouts. I hope I can show them how to be good and kind. I wish that "mean girls" were only a cautionary tale and not a harsh reality. -

Arooj: Im sorry for making fun of u and never sticking up for u and i just wish i can go in the future and change that. Im really really sorry! - Amna

Arooj Naghman: ive been bullied before from a girl that i taught was my friend. She made fun of me and called me fat, ugly and also a bitch. The story started when i was in grade 6. She was my best friend but she just used me because she wanted 2 be the popular girl at school. We were in the talent show and she made a mistake and use 2 gossip that i made the mistake all the time. People use 2 call me "the embarrassment". She even told the guy i liked that i liked him and i didnt want her 2. After she told me she didn't want 2 be my friend because she taught i was an embarassment. She would lie 2 my mom saying that she hit me or she punched me in the face when i didnt do anything. My mom yelled at me and after that i wish i were dead. I would cry everyday in my room and even at school. She even lied that my other friends told her not 2 be her friend when they didnt. I was so happy when she moved back 2 Chicago. She still had my number and now she calls me a bitch everyday. I wish i taught her how cruel she can be. Now i feel like i didnt do anything. But now i think of it i dont cry and i let it go. I want her 2 nevercome back ever again and that reason is only cause of this campaign. -

Dianne: I pledge to stop saying and thinking bad things about other girls. I realize that I only do it because of my own insecurities. I worry my boyfriend is looking at prettier, skinnier, younger, more fun girls and it scares me a lot. - City

Taylor Chanes: My close friend went after the guy I liked. In return, I convinced him to break up with her and then not even a day later, I hooked up with him. I did everything in my power to get him from her, and in the end neither of us got him, but I was the one with the broken heart, while she had a broken trust. I feel horrible for doing that to her behind her back while EVERYONE around her knew what was going on. - Corissa Burdette

Taylor Chanes: I have not been the best person, but I do not deserve to be judged by my appearance. In middle school, there were alot of asian kids. They discriminated because I am mexican. They made me feel like I was not good enough. They were very hurtful. When I finally went to a school counselor, I was after made fun of because I told. It wasn't until I lost my mom, that they started to be nice to me. after 3 years of hatred from them, I was afraid to even talk to them when they were "being nice". It wasn't until 4 years had gone by that I finally DIDN'T CARE about them anymore and I was able to recover from that traumatic experience. -

Asher Herrmann: During the seventh grade (now) I have been called pimple face and zit face and many things similar to that and sometimes even by my own best friend. It makes me feel like everyone would be better if i just left. I have also been called the same things by many boys and that ,makes me feel like i'll never get married or get my first kiss. I know God says that he loves us and we shouldn't care what others think but I doubt that a lot. -

Phoebe: In fifth grade when you were in our forth fifth class mix and I was popular I let it get to my head. I called you a follwer and other things. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. Please don't hate me. I hate myself too much. - Gayle

Phoebe: After all these years the truth is now being drilled into my mind. I'm fat. I'm ugly. I'm stupid. I stopped eating for a while. A girl came up to me in the hallway and she said, "I'm doing a project on famines. Could I interveiw you?" No matter what I do I'm not perfect. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. But not the right kind. I know the Barbie doll is supposed to be bad but I want to be like Barbie. She's perfect. We all have scars. I just wear mine on the inside. To protect my family. They don't know half of my life. I hate sports and my dad wants me to do them. I like acting. I wish I could tell him. My friends do sports and want me to join but I don't want to. I HATE SPORTS! I HATE MY FAT, UGLY SELF! I just want to cry sometimes. I do all the time. But then I get made fun of because I'm not wearing mascara or make up. I hate life sometimes. I look at our medicine cabinet sometimes and wonder how long it would take for me to die after putting the pills in my mouth. -

Phoebe Olderman: I was bullied a lot. I like to express myself through clothes and hair and some people make fun of me. I remember the in the third week of middle school I bought new clothes and wore the outfit. My BEST FRIEND asked if I would change into my gym clothes. It was a sparkly T-shirt and skinny white jeans. I wore a pink velvet bow in my hair. By fourth hour kids were shouting "Hey look it's project runway! I see her outfit, now I want to run-away!" It really hurt. Soon my friend asked if I would change MY LAUGH. She had a problem with THE WAY I LAUGHED. I spent my third hour in the girl's bathroom crying. Now I still haven't toId my friends. I wish I could. I want to. But I'm too scared. -

Phoebe: I'm sorry to a girl who is now a close friend. She is a year younger than me and was in my fifth fourth grade class mix. I was a popular fifth grader and it went to my head. I called her a follwer behind her back. I'm so sorry Gayle. I hope this won't hurt our friendship. -

A Broken Heart: I pledge to always stand up for those who have been or who are being bullied so that they can feel the feeling of a strong friendship the way i have. - City

A Broken Heart: i have been bullied for 6 years. I have been slappedand people have wrote mean notes about me. I have had people crush my dreams. To this day i feel scared and shy and i feel like i can't trust people. Others actions have changed me completely. My mom said i used to be all smiles. Now I feel like im wearing a mask. As time passes i can feel the mask slowly coming off. Kids giggle while i do things and I immediately believe i have done something wrong. i have received notes saying things like "You suck at everything." or "Stop trying to be a know it all." . I once tried to audition for a play and right after my audition a girl asked me "Are you sure you want to do this? I mean there is singing and it doesn't seem like you handle stage fright very well." . I am actress and im not gonna let anyone tell me otherwise. I have amazing friends now who are always there if i need to cry. Even though i feel somewhat worthless i know im a shining pearl in my friends eyes. To everyone else how has been bullied~ Please dont go off killing or cutting yourself! I know how you feel you are NOT alone! there are people who love you. You just gotta find the right person -

A.Crystal: People make fun of me just because I look different. They say everytime I jump the whole world shakes, they say Im not pretty enough too be a girl. I have a lot of bad things to say everytime they make fun of me but I don't because thats not who I am. My best friends don't stick up for me instead they just laugh along. It really hurts when they do that but I don't show it because I don't want the bullies to know Im scared. I feel sorry for the bullies because they have nothing to do but make fun of pretty girls like me. -

Katelyn Marie Shawan: My foutth grade year at Langford in Austin, Texas was good in the begining upuntil we got two new students in our class and they mainly ran it bucause they were "so cool" people said. Well that year i lost all my friends no one liked me the two new girls started rumers that made me uncomfortable and cry. And what i hated the mot is my best friends listened to them and not me i heard them say, " so is Katie really going out with Nick" they woudent even go up to me they just asked one of the girls. i still don't know what i did i know that when they frist came is was really nice some people say i was too nice and they too advantage of me so thats why they did that. But i don't know i just don't want it to happen to me again! So after that year we moved to Michigan and of chore i did get some bulling cause in the new kid with weird parents and i talk different. But now that has lessend and im in middle school where i have pretty good friends amoung my clasmates now maybe not all like me but if i can deal they can deal too!! -

Emma Joy Balllard: I had spred a rumor about my friend. She did not like it she had felt scared and upset. I had told her who had did it and she understood why. She said thank you for telling me. She had understood why i had started it in the first place. I now knew that what they had said hurt her. So i had the guts n started a new rumor about me. To get the old one about her out. I felt good about it. She was happy and so was i. What they had said about me i did not care. Because i knew that it was a good reason why it had gotten started. -

After a few years; I just got tired of trying to prove them wrong; and I accepted everything they were saying. I still do. I believe I'm ugly, and fat, and just once; I wish I could be beautiful. -

11 years old: I dress driffrent than outher people and get made fun of it because of it yea they wear pink and stuff and i wear black but that doesnt mean they should think what they want just by looking at how i dress. They see me wear my jacket ALL day i NEVER take it off and it's their fault, they made me so mad and sad and more feelings that i couldn't take it so I have these cuts on my arm, they are from trying to take the feelings away or just trying to kill myself. Yes it's true I have pulled a gun to my head yes i want to die i don't know why i didn't pull the trigger. -

Anon: I'm sorry I've called you stupid and that I've made you cry so many times. I really want to restart, you are my best-friend and I love you more then you can imagine. - Laura

Anon: My bestfriend in grade 6 would only talk to me when her 'popular' friends weren't looking. It used to kill me inside. All my true friends used to tell me to give up everytime I would finally decide too, she would catch on and call me up and ask to hang out. We had been best-friends since grade 2 and I didn't want to lose her. I don't understand why I had to go through that, she was supposed to be my best-friend. After when we went to different schools, by choice, we drifted. Now despite how I felt in Grade 6, I treat my best-friend like that. I trick her, and I call her names like stupid. I've made her cry too many times. It makes me feel really bad, but I don't know why I don't stop. -

S: I appologize for the way I ended our friendship, you did so much for me. - K

Soo Kyong: I am so sorry for leaving you in 7th grade, even though you were always by my side. I left you because you were not popular and many people told me I should stop being friends with you. Stupidly, I agreed. You tried to make our friendship last, but I cut it off. Now we're juniors in high school and I regret so much. I tried to rekindle our friendship, but you obviously do not want to do that. I completely understand because I know how hurt and angry you are. I wouldn't want to be friends with me either after I left you high and dry. Also, you gave me so many chances before but I never took them. I am so sorry I left you for a group of people who are not even my friends. I really admire you because you were still able to pull it through and now you are even more beautiful than you were before. Comparing myself to you, I feel so embarrassed because you were always the great best friend while I wasn't even a friend. Now, you have tons of friends while I feel so alone and stupid.You are happy (and you deserve to be happy) while I am so miserable right now. I tried to apologize to you before, but because of my pride and fear of rejection, I never was able to do it. I know posting my apology on the web isn't the same thing as telling you in person, but I just need to get it out there. It's really hard to find a true friend, let alone a great true friend. I was stupid to not see that I had one before. Please forgive me. I am not asking you to be my friend immediately. Please let me earn your friendship and trust. I really miss you. - Olivia

Alex: The Kind campaign came to my school today and it was life changing. A couple years back, in middle school there was this girls I knew. She was fairly popular, well she had friends and Im not sure exactly what happened but her friends turned on her. I tried to really hard to be friends with her, but i we didn't have any classes together so it was difficult. I simply thought that her and her friend had gotten into a little bit of a fight, so I didn't think that much of it. After we watched the documentary Finding Kind she told me, in detail how she was affected by what happened between her and her friends. She told me how they would plan all they ways to embarrass her and how physically hurt her. She was never in any physical pain that i know of, but the things she told me were crazy. I didn't even realize how she was getting bullied, i was right there and apparently the things they said to her were very hurtful. i didn't realize how much words could hurt, i've never been bullied or if people say mean things to me I just laugh it off, because really i don't care what people think. I wish that i could've been there for her because by the end of middle school she had barley one friends, me. i wish that i could've tried hard to be there for her cause she really is a great person. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOR DOING THIS!!!! It really opened my eyes to so many things. - Nicole

Courtney: i used to have this friend and she was reeeeealy funny and kind. we used to go shopping together. one day i went to her house to hang out and we talked about stuff in her room. she said that she had to go to the bathroom so she went out and i waited for her. but when she came back, her mum was with her looking really mad. i was going to ask what was wrong when her mum asked why i said mean stuff to my friend and punched her and kicked her. i had no idea what was going on but i didn't have the courage to say that i didn't do those things to my friend. then, my friend's mum called my mum and told her what happened. my mum was so angry that she picked my up early and she told me not to do it again. the next day, my firend spread around so many rumours about me and no-one wanted to be my friend. then, all the other kids made fun of every single detail about me and pushed me around in the playground. they even wrote bad things about mee that wern't true in the girls' bathroom. i stayed home for 1 week and my friend kept saying rude stuff to me on the computer. i cired alot and spent all my spare days in my bedroom. my mum asked what was wrong and i told her all about the teasing and the punching at school. i then got trasported to anoher school and i have really nice friends now. i still don't know why my friend told so many lies about me. -

Luisa: a few months ago a rumor was spread around my class that i liked this guy who no-one liked much. my class thought that because he liked me even though i didn't like him and he used to talk to me in class and try to get my attention and hang out with me in sport-time. then, the day i found out that rumour, one of my friends came up to me at lunch and asked: "Hey, do you have like, a partner in your class?" from then on, i wanted to keep away from the guy because he was getting annoying. once, me and the guy were walking to the lunch area and he was just talking and talking and talking and i was just trying to get away from him and then one of my friends saw and she came in between us and said: "Oh, you're having a nice chat, are you? So, when's your date?" then all her friends started laughing and i just wanted to run away and cry. i told the teacher about it and she talked about it to the class. she didn't say any names, just saying the situation. then, my class stopped saying the rumour and the guy kind of didn't like me anymore. i'm glad i had the courage to say that to the teacher. i kinda feel proud of myself :) -

Kathryn : Renate, I know that it has been over 10 years since I wrote that horrible note, and that I have already apologized for the unkind things that I said to you...but sometimes I still think about it and I feel so sad and heartbroken that I was unkind and immature enough to think that something like that note was acceptable. I have searched for you on Facebook to add you as a friend and see how you are doing after all of these years, but it looks like you don't have one. I remember in high school, right before you moved, that you had a notebook for people's contact info. so that you could stay in touch with your friends. I was really happy that you had forgiven me for all of my unkind acts in middle school and Jr. High and that you asked me for my email address and phone number. But then, you were gone. I haven't heard anything about you or your family, and I hope that by posting this online that somehow, some way, you will know that you are still thought of and loved by one of the girls who used to be so horrible to you. Are you doing alright? Are you happy? I truly hope that you are. I am so sorry for how I treated you. I am so happy that we parted on good terms. If you ever find this, please find me and let me know how you're doing. I'm on Facebook and I would love to hear from you - Renate

Samantha: Im in seventh grade and it is torture to me. This year someone physically hit me. What did I do to them to make them do that to me? I get called fat, ugly, and nobody wants to see my face. The counsler at my school just says to ignore the bullies. I cant ignore somebody if they're physically hitting me. I always sit alone at lunch while everybody else has friends. Apparently, the people in my grade see me as the "weird kid." -

Jannie: One time I got my period and some stupid slut made fun of me :( -

Nekisa: I pledge in your honor. I pledge that I will never stand by and watch someone else become a victim. I will never allow myself to be a victim or turn this on another friend. I will be a friend to everyone - no matter their story. I want everyone I ever meet to know that I will always be there for them, even if they just want to say hello. I pledge to be your friend. - Newport Beach

Nekisa: I wish I could tell you this in person, but because of what happened I will never be able to. You left this world before I had a chance to become the person I am today, the friend I could have been for you. I am so sorry that I wasn't there for you, that I was so oblivious to the world around me and to someone in need. I wish that things could have gone differently and even though it's not much I hope this is a start. I am sorry I didn't tell you any of this any sooner, before it was too late. I'm sorry. But never forget that you were always loved, no matter what. - Stephanie

Kate: Hey :-) I am almost 50 and i cry still every time I think of my pain in middle school. I don't know if I will ever understand how I became a target. There is no rational, single "reason". Then I went to a very poor, third-world country. I saw big problems. Disease. No sanitation. No food. No education. Death from all sorts of manageable issues. Pain and suffering not limited by age, gender, or quality of character. I knew that the tormentors back home were so SMALL! They did not understand that they could CHOOSE to be kind, instead of causing more pain. The world has too much pain and I choose kindness! I have not always succeeded. But I strive for that mark. I have yet to either confront or forgive my tormentors. It makes me less and I pray someday to be strong enough to shine the light on what they did to me. it will release me. Thank you for letting me share this... Healing comes in steps -

Ayla: Im sorry about me talking behind your back on facebook I didnt mean for you to take it that way I didnt meen for it to hurt you and I know it still hurts you tell this day every time I see you I know. - Jessa

Mollie: I thought I had a best friend until I began 6th grade and she decided I wasn't cool enough for her. But instead of just growing apart, she decided to make my life a living hell for 2 years. I was constantly bullied at school and online; told I was hated, a loser, annoying, etc. I believed it for 2 years until I got fed up. I realized that I had other friends but I wasn't utilizing them because I thought I needed to be part of the "cool group." I cut myself off from the girls who bullied me and made friends with girls who WANTED to be my friend. I've never looked back since. I hope younger girls can see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you don't like your situation--change it. You have the power to make your life better. -

April: I was bullied for being short. I had a bff that turned on me and used me as her puppet to show off her friends. She said things to me like midget or an elf, gnome. I moved to a different school a year later and i found greater friends than I ever did. Thank you Mommy and Daddy! Then a new girl also moved in and she....she made dumb rumors about me thinking she was going to be the queen on the school. I simply walked away to hide my tears. Her dad was a business man and moves to places,so the girl moved far far away. After I heard those rumors I didnt say anything because I remembered the Kind Campaign. You helped me, Thank you -

Lilly: I''m sorry Krystal that we have separated as friends so much. I'm sorry that in middle school and now in high school I told personal information and embarrassing things about you and you're family. I did have my reasons at the time though; my own life and family was falling apart at the time and you're life seemed to be going perfect and I was jealous. I wish we could go back to the way we used to be. I pledge to be KIND. - Krystal

Kate: Me and my sister never get along. she bullies me constantly and has my whole life. she uses her depression as an excuse for everything, but its been years and she is better now. i just want to have a normal family. my parents love her more, she gets everything she wants. i just wish that maybe once someone would notice that IM upset and crying alone in the bathroom. but no one ever does, because im just the stupid little sister. -

After the next semester I talk to them that even tough you tease me I dont Care I just need to be myself after that they want them to let me eat with them at lunch I was happy to have them back. So some girls out there be yourself. -

Anonymous: Dear little curly brown-haired girl in grade one, I sincerely apologize for pulling your hair, insulting you and taking away your freedom and childhood happiness for a period of time. Even the little mean things that I did when we were kids. I'm sorry, I truly am sorry for hurting you and I hope with entirety that you are a happy girl right now and you are living the life you always wanted to live. I don't know where you are right now, but if it were possible, I would go back in time to redo the things I've done and said to you that were hurtful. I am sorry.

Zainab: I am usually last to have the latest things in clothing and in technology. I also happen to be overweight. I try to not be around the other girls who are slim and have everything they want. A lot of girls get pushed out of the 'in' group for not having cool thing or to not be slim as a stick. That's just how it goes in my school. But now I'm trying to not think of the worst. And I'm gonna try to lose weight so I have more self esteem. Thank You Kind Campaign -

Alison: I pledge to ignore the comments of others and to just be myself. - Monticello

Alison: I'm not popular. I'm a skinny short kid who is smart and wears lots of dark colors. I know I'm not Goth or emo but it hurts when someone talks about you and says that you are. It really hurt my feelings. I'm not okay with it but what could I do. But I am not Goth or Emo I am me. -

Hannah: I'm just being me, but not everyone likes that. I don't know what I'm doing differently, but some girls on Youtube are really nice to the prettier and more successful people and really rude to me. I've gotten so hurt that I wanted to fire back at them, and I've even wasted time crying over the mean things that they said, but I remind myself that I am God's child and that I can be one fewer mean girl in the world. After all, other girls are looking up to me. I can't let them down by behaving poorly. -

brittany: i pledge to be kind to my friends and others - new york

Lea: I go to the school that Molly and Lauren visited today. This is my truth: At the beginning of this year there was a girl I thought I was friends with. Earlier today she turned on me. She called me a di** and a bi*** and it hurts. So if you read this you who said it to me dont in the future. Remember the golden rule. -

Daphne: Back in Junior High, the girls always call me names like Rikishi (the biggest wrestler in WWE) just because I was bigger and heavier than all the average Junior school girls and the other school mates would just laugh at me. I used to cry alone at my desk and always hopping that one of them would at least understand how hurtful it is to be called names. Until now, I remember clearly every moment they called me names and it gave me bad memories of my Junior high. I never liked my childhood/school days. I often try to forget and forgive but it is so hard. -

Isabella: I'm sorry I judged you before I met you - Annabelle

Meg: I'm sorry, Grace. I know we're, like, best friends now. But I'm sorry I talked about you in sixth grade. I was jealous because you're beautiful and sweet and popular. I know that sounds cliche but it's true. And even though we're close now, I'm still sorry that I called you a bitch, because it wasn't true. And it didn't make me look good, despite what I'd thought. - Grace

Meg: I'm one of those girls who always reaches out to my friends. I'm the one to email them, the one to tell them they're beautiful, the one to check up on them and remember birthdays. I'm the one who invites them over or comforts them when they're down. I'm the one who makes an effort towards my friends. I have so many close friends, and one best friend, and they're all amazing. But someday, I'd like one person to ask ME if I'd like to hang out with them that weekend, instead of the other way around. -

Marie: That fight that happend in 6th grade, im sorry i was mean to you please forgive me i know we are bffls and bffls should NEVER treat eachother that way.... - Zhanna

Nathalie Campos : I've been bullied before. I never liked how that felt. It felt horrible. I always wanted ti be dead in this world. I was in 6th grade when the bullied started. I thought i could trust my friend, but that was a lie. I told my friend a screct which was who i liked. My friend told everyone in the school. Everyone started to make fun. Like i wasnt pretty for him, or he would never like me. after I've been wanting to leave and killmyself. But i know that wouldnt ever help. -

fatimah: My truth is I am nice -

Linda: Back in my old school, girls hated each other. They fought over boys.I worried if they were going to spread rumors about me. The fights got bad.The teachers soon found out.My friend was pushed to the floor because she used to date a boy and most girls got mad at her because those girls liked him. I tried to stop it, until I thoght that they would get mad at me. so i stayed away, thinking if they would hit ,kick,orpunch each other.But now im in a different school and they are still fighting! -

Cindy: Being unkind to one another is not a new thing. 20 years a girl my own age thought because she was twice my size she could punch me in the face. The worst part is everyone who saw it did nothing to help me. -

Sammy: I always try to be good person and be there for others and most times this means i dont take care of myself, it feels like no one listens to me or cares to hear what i have to say. sometimes i say mean things but i truly dont mean them, i say mean things because im hurt and feel stranded. I wish i was perfict that i didnt feel hurt or lost so i can always suport and protect my friends but sadly i am human and have feelings. But with you girls at my side i will and can be the best me i can be. To my soul sisters Alex, Carmen, Elys and Marissa. so much more then the power of three - To my soul sisters Alex, Carmen, Elys and Marissa. so much more then the power of three

Sammy: When i was in Jr high i had a crush on this guy nothing to big but this "friend" of mine told me she had talked to the guy and he said that he really liked me back, well being a brave girl i walked up to him and sat next to him and asked him out. He laughed in my face, i ran out of class and into the girls bathroom and cried a few moments later i heard my "friend" and another girl walk in they where laughing so loudly and i heard my "friend" say "wow how stupid did she look? i can not believe she fell for that." i was crushed i walked out and looked at her her friend looked at me wide eyed, my "friend" looked at me like i was going to kill her honestly i wanted to. but i just told her how mean she was and i walk out. -

Claudia: Sometimes i feel the new girl Alexis is taking my best friend away. -

Kellly: I am really sorry to my friend Chauntae after getting in an argument. -

Abbey: I guess lots of girls get bullied in school, but I don't think anyone would have been bullied quite like me. It all started on my first day back at school, when Channelle had told rumors about me again. I was prepared for that though, she always did it. Then even my bestie started believing her! Lianna just randomly turned around and asked me "Did you really do that?" and I replyed "How could you believe that? You know me more than anyone!". She just moved away from my seat. Then when nearly everyone believed Channelle, she sent her friend, Maddison, to pretend they had a fight and I had been there for more than Channelle. I believed her because that's what I was like, naive. I ended up becoming Maddy's best friend. But the next day she put white-out in my hair. And told everyone I had a bad case of dandruff. A few weeks later she told everyone I called her a lesbian, and that she was from hell. I wouldn't do that, I refused to stoop to her level. But when the teacher heard that I may have done that, she told my mum. When my mum heard, she didn't let me go to school for the rest of the week. I never felt more ashamed. When the concert time came, I was over-excited. I had practiced my song over and over again. But when the big night came i had never expected to be sabotaged by Channelle again. When I was ready to sing, she whispered something to Maddy, and then Maddy tripped me over. Well, if I went back in time, I'd know not to introduce myself to Channelle. That's my story. -

Kelsey: I am so sorry for all the things I did to you .I am so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so sorry for being so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so mean to you Shayne.I am really really really really sorry to you Shayne.I am really sorryand I mean it.I am not lying to you Shayne. - Shayne

Abbey : I am sorry to my best friend Jessica, I have treated her like dirt and I have no idea what had come over me. I can only hope that she forgives me. I miss her like crazy, but I'm not the only one who went sour. But I want us to put our differences behind and be like we used to. - Jess

Sarah: I'm sorry for always saying the wrong thing. I don't mean to but it just comes out and if you are upset I take full responsibility and will do everything in my power to make it up to you - Many people

Sarah: I think I am a very kind person but I have a habit of putting my footing my month a lot and I usually end up hurting people's feelings on accident but my problem is that I am sometimes to proud to apologize. -

rachel: i was never a very mean girl, but i do admit i would spread gossip and secrets here and there. so i want to apologize to anyone i've ever hurt verbally. - everyone

Rachel: my bestfriend is a backstabber. i used to be too, but that was a long time ago and my motto has been for awhile "if you wouldn't say it in their presence don't say it at all." i thought my bestfriend had changed too, but i was wrong. she's constantly telling my secrets and telling people that no one likes me and whenever someone insults me, instead of standing up for me, she agrees. if she hates me that much, why does she pretend that she loves me so much? she doesn't understand how badly it hurts to know your bestfriend since 5th grade (we are in high school now) does that to you. and then she has the nerve to tell everyone that IM a bad friend, when really i keep her secrets and i dont say bad things about her. sure every once and awhile i will spill a secret or say something bad about someone so im not saying she's the only guilty one here. but i just wish she knew how it felt. -

Lauren: I'm sorry for every girl and boy I hurt. I only do that because I'm bullied a lot. -

EG: I am truly sorry for anything that I may have done to hurt others when I was younger. I am sorry that I was not strong enough to say no and I am sorry that I let others hurt me as well. I will try as hard as I can to make sure that my daughter has better experiences.

Ailish: Sorry for the times I haven't been the nicest friend to you when I know you are just trying your best to fit it. But you don't need to thats what gets to me, you are perfect how you are:) - Renae

Ailish: We had a little group of friends and we had like a code of honour in some way. One of the rules was everyone has to agree. Three of us wanted to have a new member but the other girl didn't want to. She started to become really mean and we didn't know what to do. We decided to scrap the group and she asked why. We almost lost the friend we wanted in the group because of the other girl. But we sorted it out and we have forgiven her. She NEVER talks to us anymore and we don't know why. -

laure: to be kind - ln

J from Colorado: Dear Becky, I'm sorry for teasing you. I thought it would make me cooler by belittling you. 20 years later and it still haunts me that I did that to you. I can't imagine how it must haunt you. Again, I'm sorry. -

Alexa: I pledge to never become a mean girl as a woman, I pledge to never let my daughters become mean girls, and I pledge to protect them from mean girls, being exposed to that is the worst thing that ever happened to me, if I were to willingly throw my daughters to the wolves I'd be sending them on a road to suicide that I was on too, and more importantly I pledge to never let my daughters become mean girls and send someone ELSE on a road to suicide, I will never let them see either side of that coin, I will teach them what I was taught, I will show them what can happen if they say even one mean thing to someone else, and I will raise them to be better than the people who put me down, that is my pledge - Woodstock

Your Name: I'm proud to say I was never a mean girl, I had been put down so much by them that I couldn't stand up for myself much less bite back, but that anger and frustration did build up, and I did take it out on someone undeserving, I apologise to my mom who put up with me during that time, I yelled at her alot and said alot of things I didn't mean because I was trying to be "cool" or because I was so frustrated with never being able to scream a defense at the girls that beat me down that everytime anything upset me I absolutely tore my mom's head off, and I am so sorry for that, if I could, I'd go back and time and yell into a pillow, my mom is my best freind, and at some times my only freind, and I love her - Darla

Mary: Yeah I'm sorry I dreamed of your being eaten by tigers. At least I didn't say "Last night I had a dream about nice, cute tigers. Oh yeah in it they ate you!" to your face unlike the things you said to my face. I can't wait until I attend your High School Graduation and you find out who that girl is. That girl being me and you hopefully apologize to me too. I am truly sorry since I got over you two. The only thing I could ask if to hear "I am sorry" from your lips. Anyway thanks to you, I am nowhere near as judgmental over people nowadays. Sorry, I promise the tiger won't eat you ever again, like they haven't for 2 years. - Sarah and Rachael

Kindly, Older, Wiser, Self: I am sorry for not knowing better then. I am sorry that you were formed in a culture where it was more Important to fit in then be KIND to others. I am sorry for allowing other people to get you down when nothing they said should have mattered. I am sorry you still have trouble forgiving those "friends" in sixth grade who stole your shoes because the weren't a name-brand and then played keep-a-way with them, leaving you shoeless during recess. I am sorry that judging others feels like an automatic response. I am sorry you have struggled with eating disorders for 10+ years because your self esteem is lacking too much to feel you are worth healing. I am sorry you have spent so many hours alone, feeling sad, and yearning for closer relationships with others, but not knowing how to form friendships because during your formative years "girls were just being girls" and "kids are cruel". I am sorry suicide has been considered as a coping option too many times to count. I am sorry for not being tougher and finding inspiration sooner.
