What do Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Kate Middleton have in common? Besides that they are rich and famous, all of them were bullied during their childhood! Deplorably, bullying is a wide-spread problem; happens world-wide! And it can vandalize everything, from your self-esteem to your physical and mental health. One thing is pretty sure after knowing the number of sheer famous people who got bullied; bullying is common!
So, is it possible to get rid of bullying? Of course it is! And below I mention 3 ways to actually stop getting bullied.
1. Understand that it isn’t your fault
The main reason why you may get bullied is because you are unique! Maybe unique in your clothing, interest or habits and that is not your fault! It patently has to do with the bully’s personal issues. Don’t start scrutinizing yourself with the bully’s eyes; don’t fall short on your self-esteem, because that way you attract the bully more towards harassing you. Making a note of all the unique abilities you possess, that distinguish you from the rest of the public, can definitely help you maintain a smile and self-esteem the next time you face the bully.
This is assuredly the best option. Don’t pay attention to the bully’s remarks. Just ignore, yield your head high and walk away in a way that shows you are a person deserving respect and you lay unaffected by their comments.
Undoubtedly, this is a response the bully doesn’t expect or enjoy. And after a few more attempts they give up on the whole idea of bullying you because they don’t see the wanted chagrin generating in you. Yes, you are definitely going to feel it but the game lies mainly in not expressing it.
3. Initiate Friendships
Develop new friends, stand up for each other, support others and ask for support. If someone is being bullied speak up. Tell the bully calmly to stop it and convince the audience that what they are practicing isn’t fair or morally acceptable. The bully’s main power is the audience approval and when that breaks their statements end up being an insult at their own self.
Always remember, bullying isn’t okay or just for laughs. It’s a serious violation of a human being, hence say no to bullying, stand up against it and always support other people who face such challenging circumstances which can ruin their life and confidence.
