    I wrote a whole thing on growing up without ppl saying that to me and how my close friends and family disregard it but i wont bore you with details.
    Do you say it and do you mean it? Do you hear it on a daily basis?

    i found this video and i respect her for sharing her thoughts and her talent.

    if u cant say it...try and show it through ur actions.

    Write how u feel, that way u won't have to say it to the person you love. Baby steps. I very easily say "i love you" to lots of people in my life. Mom and Dad of course...brothers, yes.... tho not as often as mom and dad.

    Friends, yes. It's not exactly "passionate" but I do mean it when I say it.

    A "love" typically takes time to develop. if you feel u love someone, just try and say it...but dont make it awkward, just say it and carry-on.

    but dont say it after a one-night stand of passionate sex or anything. That'll make u look like a weird-o. Just say it to people u do love. nah mean?

    But you can say it to your hot Puerto Rican boyfriend two cocktails after you've met.

    What, broken up already?


    nope, still going strong. Thanks for your concern though.
    And I haven't told him I loved him. I LIKE him, can't call it love tho. It's been like a month of knowing him.

    I found her to be needy and attention seeking ... I really didn't buy the whole crying act .... anybody who has really been bullied becomes pretty hard and cold ... not whiny and blubbery

    I try on a daily basis through unspoken terms. Learning is hard and its harder when youre not surrounded by it. Either through passion or through the the ppl in your life (friends, family, pets icon_smile.gif )

    if it was to get the attention of the judges and the crowd i guess it worked. im hoping shes genuine. I dont like needy ppl and i for one dont want to come off as needy.

    Oh, no ... nothing about you ... and don't get me wrong, I'm sure she may have had some issues in the past, but I've got a feeling that she intentionally over dramatised them to get her a vote ... but then ... she's a kid ... kids can do that

    I can't believe how callous some of you are. Bullying can be that traumatizing.

    I, too, was bullied when I was a kid, so I know how painful it can be. Things got so bad that I sometimes skipped classes. Eventually, I transferred to another school.

    I'm sorry to hear. I was bullied too but not to the extent some kids endure. I kept to myself, didn't talk much, stayed home a lot. I liked the video because she is trying to overcome all the abuse she faced and for her to have that courage is awesome. Some people, however, use that as a punchline and try to milk certain situations.

    Agreed.
    I dropped out of high school because my depression combined with the stress of every day bullying was too much for me to handle.
    I was crying basically from when she started singing until the end of the video. Knowing what it feels like to be in the same situation makes it easy to tell that she wasn't just saying those things to get voted for.

    Your constant stupidity never ceases to amaze me. You clearly have no idea what it's like to be somebody who can't just hold their emotions in like a heartless machine. Not everyone will have the same emotional development based on their bullying experience.
