Recently, I have noticed many of my fellow bloggers talking about bullying when the video below came to mind. It doesn't matter what those people say to you. Those people that are saying these bad things to you or are physically pushing you around are just saying/doing those things, because they have their own insecurities.
These people feel the power of their bullying when the victim is pushed away from the things they desired. No matter how much kids believe it is uncool to get parents and teachers involved it needs to be done to stop these bullies. Someone I talked to recently told me how their child was bullied and pushed away from an activity they enjoyed. That truly broke my heart to think that child is missing out on something they will probably never get a chance to enjoy again.
If I could give any advice on how to deal with bullying I would say this.. These bullies already have the power of making you feel less of a person each day. Don't give them the satisfaction or power to take anything else from you. I personally know someone that was pushed around and bullied when they were young and throughout most of their childhood. This really effected and played a huge part in who this person became as an adult. They now put up a tough front with a barrier where very few people can get through. They only have friends from their childhood and have no desire in making new friends. It breaks my heart when I hear the stories of the bullied past this person had to endure.
This person I speak of stopped playing activities they enjoyed because of these bullies. They are very negative about their past and about many people. It makes it seem like some of the negativity of the one that bullied them has rubbed off onto them.
I have one thing to ask those people that might have bullied in the past or are still doing so today. How do you want to be remembered? Personally throughout my life I think about how I want to be remembered when I think about actions I take. I want you to also think about would you want someone to treat you this way? I know I treat others how I would want to be treated, so you would think others would do the same.
Now it is time for us all to join in with all the STOP BULLYING Campaigns that are going on all around the world. I feel that we can stop bullying one person at a time, but we need to work together to make it stop. Now take a minute to enjoy the video below written by Christina Aquilera and video made by D-PAN. Remember, you are beautiful and important in some way no matter what those bullies say!
