So, I know a lot of people that have been bullied online or in real life(me included.) Some for disabilities so for other reasons. I have had both so, I wanted to say if you are a bully and you bully because of disabilities alone stop!!!
Please! That person already has a problem. You don’t need to add onto that.
Disability I have
So, I have said I have a disability. So I have C.P or Cerebral Palsy. What is C.P?
** A congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture. Cerebral palsy is due to abnormal brain development, often before birth.**
So, we have cleared that up. Anyway, people like me. Or anyone with disabilities or not could have been bullied(currently of in the past.) But, I for one feel like that needs to stop. People are already hurting. I was bullied due to my C.P so I became depressed. And even tried to kill me over it. And I bet others have too. So please stop if you are a bully you some know what people might be dealing with inside. Thank you!
You’re a powerful girl!
Bullying is something that can’t be tolerated. There’s not much of an excuse- insecurity? Trauma? Anger management issues? All can be worked on, and it must be stopped. If anyone is bullying you, please message me, someone you trust, or one of the following hotlines:

Funny, this reminds me of a time when I was a boy. We had these neighborhood kids with whom we used to play outside. (yes, outside. Back before iPhones) One of them happened to have C.P, but we had no idea and/or we didn’t care. We were playing some sci-fi style Star Wars thing and she pretended to have this shield which I was trying to break and their mother came for them to get them back home.
I remember her yelling at me saying “Don’t you tease her, she’s got C.P!” I was absolutely stunned and mortified by the incident because we were all playing in good fun. Turns out she was rather paranoid by nature in general, but my younger brother knew her and the kids better than I did because I was a year or two their senior and that used to matter so much back then.
Honestly I got lucky, I guess my mom was told I might not have talk, walked, moved, or communicated at all really. But here I am prvoing them wrong! AFter being born early with a twin brothher and after having a brain bleed.
People really need to get its not just “teasing” and some ppl dont get over it. Its not a way of “toughening ppl up” or “getting rid of weak ppl” bullying is a very damaging thing(ptsd/depression/anxiety etc.). And the victimns are told to get over it.
The bully is often protected too cuz the victim “must have done something”
I get it! I was bullied for 4-5 year straight. No other friends. Till I met my best friend(I moved since then) but he hasn’t written me letters back since then.) But he guided me out of that situation and was really supportive, I was always. going back to the bully cause she was my ONLY friend. She ven tried to hit me many times. She also called me a b word in Spanish. To my face.
