The Silent One

Posted: 1/30/2015

In high school I've had classmates who made fun of me because of my shyness, and used it as a punch line for their joke.It only made me become even more shy. There was a time when I was walking to my locker and I ran into a classmate who looked like a rapper and he yelled to get out of his way. I was terrified and went to my counselor. His response was," you don't need to be afraid of him". I couldn't believe it.

My message to others who are being bullied, or have been bullied is to remember they are not what the bullies say. You are worthy, you are smart, you are good enough. Don't be afraid to speak up. Some one will listen. Someone will stand up for you. You are not alone and never will be. Teachers, principals, counselors if you are not sure how to handle the situation, educate yourselves. Don't look the other way, Your students need you. They need someone to protect them. Let's end bullying together and help the ones who are suffering out loud and in silence.
