A video I stumbled across on tumblr, that should be shared with everyone in the whole world.

i see how that video could be inspirational to those who are suffering immensely from bullying and/or depression. but to me it seems a little overly dramatic. nonetheless it has its purpose.

and lol @ the karate chop thing.

almost every other kid grew up like that, but these kids divide to two diffrent groups, the ones who cry at home or make sad videos about it and the ones who act ultraviolent..

I kept to myself mostly, never got bullied... I should rephrase that some tried to bully me, but the punch in the face from me made them do otherwise.

I know at least one, intimately, who did both. At least up until he realized that the world is a cynical place, and there's absolutely nothing that he can do to change anything or anyone. He eventually became a lonely cynical person, who feels like he is the most misunderstood person in the world, and only wants society to become a better place for people like him.

Be it because of name calling or physical violence inflicted upon him as a child, it turned him into what he is today. That is what the video is about.

Bullying is wrong and should be stopped but it will never be simply because its Human nature to identify and label differences in each other even the most tolerant of people still put others in a "box" simply by saying "oh look what she's wearing, Why would you drive something like that?,and so on".
But its effects can be lessened by how you cope with it and I should know being from the fat brigade and being a life member I choose to shove it back in there faces by beating them in sport by sheer will because it's one thing to get beaten it's even worse to be beaten by a fat kid at sport

I was bullied, but I never thought once that I wouldn't be loved or any of that jazz. Honestly, I kind of relished in the loneliness. I preferred it, actually. That being said, I wasn't really bullied in high school. As far as I can tell, no one was. If any one were to be bullied, I was probably friend with them in my freshmen year. I just hung out in that crowd.

Middle school, on the other hand, I was bullied pretty heavily. I broke out my two front teeth when I was 12, I think, and was called Chipper for the rest of middle school. I hated that nickname. And, once, I let a tear shed after getting punched in the head pretty hard. Not a good idea. Don't let them see you cry.

Bullying builds character etc., etc.. I'm totally fine now. I've got healthy relationships, in college, getting a job, and all that. It gets a lot easier as time passes.

But yeah, that video is way overly dramatic.
