Shared Stories

The “I Was” campaign invites users to reflect on their experiences with bullying and encourages them to share their stories. The campaign emphasizes the importance of open communication and creating an inclusive atmosphere. It then explores the perspectives of being a victim, a bully, or a bystander to bullying and the transformative power of acknowledging and addressing these roles.

The campaign invites users to submit their stories to be featured on the website and social media campaigns. We are well aware of the stigma that often accompanies bullies, victims and even bystanders and enablers. To that end we are very careful to ensure the privacy of participants on this website, and any stories you send us will never include your name or any identifying information.

I was...

A Victim

Admitting that you were bullied is a profound act of self-empowerment. It signifies a willingness to confront past traumas and break free from the chains of silence.

By acknowledging the experience, you regain control over your narrative and transform yourself from a victim into a survivor.

It's a declaration that you refuse to be defined by the past and are ready to move forward with strength, resilience, and a renewed sense of self-worth.

A Bully

Admitting that you were a bully and extending a heartfelt apology is a profoundly liberating experience. It marks the moment you confront your own past actions with honesty and courage, acknowledging the harm you may have caused.

This self-awareness is the first step toward personal growth and redemption. Apologizing not only offers relief to the victim but also provides a powerful sense of release for the person who once perpetuated harm. It's a transformational journey that allows you to shed the weight of regret and, in its place, cultivate empathy, understanding, and a commitment to positive change.

A Bystander

Acknowledging that you were a bystander to bullying signifies a recognition of the moral responsibility we all share to stand up against injustice.

By admitting your inaction, you not only demonstrate humility but also set the stage for personal growth. It's a transformative act that awakens empathy, prompting a commitment to no longer remain passive when witnessing harm.

It's through these admissions that we collectively begin to break the cycle of silence and become active agents of positive change, ensuring that no one suffers in silence due to our indifference.
