Hey guys.. I just watched Cyberbully again and... It really upset me.
I don't think that people really understand what it's like to be bullied or what it's like to feel depression.
People say that they're always depressed when really, they're not. They think they're depressed because they're not used to being sad. In reality, being depressed... is when it's hard to do simple things... Even saying hi hurts. You may not want to be around anyone... You don't want to move... You don't really feel anything either. People may think that feeling depressed is crying all the time and self harm... Though self harm may be what people do, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's depression... You don't really feel anything...
I'm not sure if this counts for all people... but this is what I felt when I was depressed.
Life was getting a bit too hard to handle because of the people around me.
I just want to say that... For those of you that have been bullied, are watching others being bullied, or are currently being bullied, don't be afraid to stand up. It's okay to be scared, but don't let the bully get to you. If you don't speak out, it's like you're giving permission to the bully to continue harassing you and it will only get worse.
If you say you are depressed and you're not quite sure, look at this website: [link]
I took a look at it and it matched a lot of the signs of my depression.
To the bullies: To those who are bullying because you're being mistreated elsewhere, you don't have to do it. Be the change you want to see in the world because everything has a chain reaction. The biggest changes in the world began with something small, so don't think you can't make a difference. You can. I sure did. I stood up to people who were bullying me at school and some people joined me. Together, we stopped bullying in my school. You can too.
Good luck to all of you who see this journal (because I know I'm not that popular here on DA)
