Spirit Day: 2012 by CrystalKitty2 Spirit Day: 2012 by CrystalKitty2
:bulletpurple: For Spirit Day: 2012 :bulletpurple:

Spirit Day is a day of awareness of bullying. To embrace your true self and not what others want you to be. Just because of popularity, or your not like everyone else.
I use to get bullied when I was in Elementary school, and trust me it wasn't fun. I use to deal with it with just taking it and not doing anything. Which really hurts you on the inside, if you are doing this PLEASE talk to your parents and friends, trust me it will help you get through this. Even if your in a depression because of it.
I talked to my parents (IRL dad here: ~goku-r) and they told me to: "ignore and forget", if the said bully thinks you don't care, they will go away. And yes this does work.
So ever since then, just ignoring them, I haven't had a bully since then (and I grew a lot..so I am taller than everyone else, intimidating xD).
And friends help a lot with this, they will support you through it and tell you: "they are just bulling you to make them self feel better about them self's." And if you think about it like that you get your point of view changed, which also helps with dealing with it.

So I wanted to make this picture to thank all my friends who have helped me with bullying, even if its just people that talk behind your back, so I would like to thank my closest friends:
~YoshiLuigiFan22 (Sarah) and ~SweetAsSugar-Nicole (Nicole)
And my IRL dad: ~goku-r

You guys have helped me when I was dealing with bullies, and it has changed me for the better. I no longer have any.
So thank you again. (:

Nice picture, bullying is not a leader mentality. Leaders are those who know who they are and are willing to help others. I am proud of you keep up the good work.

Very true. Also, if the bully doesn't find you as easy prey, then they will leave you alone.

Nice pic, too.

And btw, did you mean intimidating, instead of imitating?

Ffff- I love you <3 Best friends c: *le hug*
I will always be there for you, don't you forget that :'D

I know exactly how you feel, I used to be bullied in Elementary School too..
There was this after school club my brother and I went to, and the teacher there did not
pay very close attention to our group, she just sat there and assumed we were all getting along fine.
There were these two girls who used to always pick on me, and I can remember painting a picture
at a table, and they came up to me, took the picture, ripped it up, and told me that it was very ugly.
Luckily my brother was there to help me <3
But I did exactly what you did, and just ignored the people that picked on me, and you're right, it
really does work :3
