Bullying. That one thing that we all probably experienced or saw in some point of our life.
You’re going on with your day, then this one kid comes and starts picking at you and laughing at your “flaws”. You go home that night thinking about those words he said. Not knowing how to take it.
I got bullied and people still say mean things about me sometimes. But I have learned how to handle it. I know it’s easy to say but I care less and less about what people think about me. The only reason they are doing it is because they don’t feel good about themselves and they don’t want to be the only ones feeling bad. So they start picking on others to feel better. And sometimes people say things “as a joke” but it still hurts.
Just thinking about it, it’s embarrassing that people today want others to suffer to make them feel better. Children bully but they don’t know whats happening in the other person’s life, they don’t know if someone is having a hard time. Nobody should be bullied but even if you are being bullied, you will make it, You can’t let the bully win. If you let him win, then he’s going to be satisfied, and that can’t happen.
I know it can be tough at the time and you think that they are right, but, no, they are not right. You are an amazing person even if everyone else thinks the opposite. Obviously you make mistakes and that’s normal. But if people hate you for that, then they haven’t understood that we are all human and that everyone makes mistakes. When you have learnt what your flaws are nobody can use them against you. I believe that you can do it even in the worst times, in the end everything will be okay, and if it’s not okay, then it’s not the end.
Everyone is beautiful, don’t let others put “labels” on you. Only because some people say that you are fat, ugly or stupid that doesn’t mean that it is true. Don’t look in the mirror and think that you are ugly (or any other insult). Because then you are making a mistake, you are believing what others say. Even if you have blemishes, crooked teeth, small ears, big ears, black skin, white skin, acne,… You are still beautiful, you are a human and nothing should be changed about your appearance, it’s what makes you “you”. It would be so boring if we were all “perfect”.
I don’t know you, but I know that you are perfect just the way you are and I believe in every single one of you that you can prove your bully wrong.
I was sad for a while and was feeling really low. But, I found that talking helped a lot (In my case, I talked to my parents) and also doing what I love. I started writing a lot, and found a passion for it. I also was focusing on photography, it was my small safe corner (and still is obviously).
Hope you liked this post💚 I felt like writing this because I get bullied sometimes, yes, it does hurt but I know that I will make it and all of you that are having a hard time, you can also make it.
