You Will Feel Better

Posted: 5/13/2011

I have been bullied before. I was the new girl in my middle school (which was many years ago), and for some reason a girl who I never met before decided she wanted to pick on me. What she and some of my other classmates did was a lot emotional bullying. After dealing with it for several months, I reached my breaking point and told my mom about it.

She encouraged me to talk to my teacher to see how I could resolve this problem, and I'm glad I did. For once, I felt powerful over the people who once thought picking on me was "fun" and counted it as a major victory. Cheesy, I know, but that's what it felt like for me. So to the people who are dealing with being bullied, you need to stand up for yourself--NEVER stoop down to the bullies' level. When they tell you "You're stupid", "You'll never be able to do that" or anything that brings down your self-confidence, tell yourself that you are capable of doing anything no matter what they say.

If the bullying gets to a point when you can't take it anymore, please go to talk to a trusted adult for help. Once when you get the help you need, you'll feel so much better about yourself."
