Almost nobody knows how to communicate
this topic properly in schools.

We have all these school assemblies, anti-bullying
rallies, speakers who talk about the topic, even
films depicting how bad bullying can be.

However, even after all the media and the
talks we attend to, it’s still a problem.

When we see something wrong, particularly
someone getting picked on, we look the other
way and just pretend it didn’t happen. We’re
afraid to speak up because we’re scared we’re
going to be the next target.

We hear stories of other teenagers and young
adults killing themselves because they couldn’t
take any more of the bullying, and felt as though
there was nothing to look forward to anymore.

Even after hearing such tragic stories,
we never truly learn from them, and
we end up repeating it again and again.

Let me tell you something about bullies:

They’re not as tough and intimidating as you think.

In fact, they’re weak.

Chances are most likely why someone becomes
a bully has to do with the kind of environment
they were raised in.

They were neglected at home. They always saw
their parents fighting and arguing over anything
and everything. They might’ve been abused, or worse.

And because they were brought up that way,
in their mind, they look to the other person and
choose to pick on them because it makes them
feel better about themselves.

They may look like tough dog and all high and
mighty on the outside, but on the inside, they’re
more of a coward than you are.

Instead of encouraging the tension, feel bad for the bully
because they’re coming from a place out of
negativity, and deep down, they’re very insecure.

Don’t be bothered by what the bully says or does.

Don’t worry about what others think of you.

They don’t define who you are.

You do, and the best part is you can choose
how you want to be like on an every day basis.

It will be challenging to not be bothered by
the other people in school who will always
have something negative to say, but if you
choose to filter out the noise and not allow
anyone to get inside your head…

It’s the best thing you can do for yourself.
