If you’re getting bullied, harassed or teased, know with absolute certainty, that you do not deserve to be treated this way.  It is not okay.  You do not have to “just accept it”, and there is nothing about you that is “asking” to be bullied, harassed or teased.  All it means is that the person treating you this way is insecure and lacks courage. To put an end to their mistreatment of you, dig deep and find the courage to look them in the eye and ask them to stop.  Let them know, without being threatening or aggressive, that they need to stop.  Let them know that if they continue to treat you or talk to you this way, you’ll let an adult know… and not because you’re scared, but because they’re not listening and you will stand up for yourself. And remember, they want you to feel too afraid to tell someone… so they can keep doing what they’re doing. This is why the bullies created this rule that “snitching” will get you hurt… so that they can keep you scared, and they can continue bullying. And if you do tell someone, and they don’t do something to help, go to someone else. And keep going to someone else until you find the adult who will help… just never give up and never “get used” to being bullied, harassed or teased.

      The more we all speak and write about bullying and the ways we can move through it and stand up against it… the stronger we all become. Keep up the good blogging and thank you.
