About 42 percent of kids have been bullied while online with one in four being verbally attacked more than once. About 35 percent of kids have been threatened online. About 58 percent of kids and teens have reported that something mean has been said about them or to them online. That means that 1 in 2 kids have been bullied at least once.But every problem has its own solution. By the end of this blog post you will be ready to cut bullying out of your life. 

I was been bullied since I was like 10 so If you are guys been bullied all you gotta do is stay positive and never let others define you. 


What should you do?

Never let anyone tell you how you should act, look, what you should wear , what phone you should be using or what activities you should be doing. Nobody's perfect yet nobody is allowed to make you feel bad, sad or lonely because you are different. Bullies are usually desperately seeking for attention so they find someone 'weaker' , shorter or poorer and bully them. Everyone aplauses them so they feel nice. If you don't reply to negative comments or listen to what they say, they will eventually get bored and leave you alone. On the other hand, If you reply to them or get bothered and feel sad for the rest of the day or cry then guess what?! Things will get even worse! The bully will hurt you again, physically or emotionally. 



Emotional Assault:

If people say negative things about you and try to bring you down by pointing out your flaws then you are being emotionally assaulted and you have to stop it. Seek for help! talk to your teachers or parents. It's really hard to do so but you should do it. People are not afraid to tell their opinion whether it's hurtful or not. You have to be prepared. Be prepared to not listen to what people think about you. What people say about you is actually their opinion and not who you are! You are meant to be happy and nobody can prevent you from doing so. Furthermore you should know that you are worthy and amazing and you can do anything! If you can't talk to a teacher or a parent I will write some help lines where you can call and talk to someone anonymously about anything that bothers you. These lines are 100% confidential so no one will ever know that you actually called.


Physical Assault: 

Physical assault or physical abuse is another major issue going on. If you are being physically assaulted (when someone punches or hits you etc.) you should:

Build a wall around you. It might be helpful to build an invisible wall around you by visualizing it in your mind. Any verbal abuse then just bounces off the wall.

Use visualization. Bullies can be pretty scary. Picturing that person looking silly might help to make them less problematic for you. For example, picture the bully’s head shrinking, or picture the bully in his or her underwear.
Stay positive. It can be hard to remember all your good points when someone is doing their best to be negative. Try to think of all the things you do well, and remember that you are a valuable person. Thinking of how bad the bully must be feeling can also help you stay positive.


Surround yourself with people who care about you. Surrounding yourself with positive people who know and like you for YOU can boost your confidence.  This will help you let bullying comments more easily roll off your back. It’s important that you connect with people who genuinely care for you and recognize all of your great qualities.

Hang around other people. You might be safer if you stay in groups. If you are alone, try to identify people who can offer you safety.

Be confident. Bullies usually pick on people that they think are weaker than they are, so it might help if you stand up to them. 

If you feel confident enough to confront the bully you can tell them things like: 
  • Whatever!
  • Do you feel better now?
  • If you're talking about me behind my back, clearly my life is a lot more interesting than yours is!
  • Let’s move on!
  • You finally found something funny to say?
  • I’m not sure why you keep saying these things about me, but I don’t care.
  • Be really cool and stop this!
  • Enough!
  • Why are you talking to me?
  • Here we go again. This is boring. Let me know when you’re done.
  • I've been called worse from better.
  • Wow, did you come up with that all by yourself?
  • Pardon me, but you seem to think that I care.

It is important to walk away after saying these things and do not react or respond to what they say because that's what they want!

Remember that everyone has the right to live, work, study and play in an environment free from bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence. No one deserves or asks to be bullied.
