Do you have a bully in your school? Seems like everybody does. Are you the one they pick on? I have been. It’s no fun. My friends even didn’t want to be around me, because they felt helpless and scared too! They thought, if they were with me, they would get bullied and made fun of too. It made them sad, because they care about me and want me to hang out with them. I felt soooooo left out, lonely and angry! It made me cry. I didn’t want anyone to know. I felt like it was my fault somehow, but now I know it wasn’t. Telling an adult was one of the hardest things I’ve EVER done. I thought I might, somehow, get in trouble. After I worked up my courage and shared what was happening to me with a grown up, things got better. The principle at school is now working with the bully and the parents. I’ve learned a lot about why they did that to me. The principle told me that I was safe, I didn’t have to go through this alone and that he was on my side. I learned that a bully is insecure and wants to make themselves feel like they are important, strong and powerful. They do it for attention. They don’t have any friends, because everyone is so scared of them. Even though I thought if I was really, really nice to the bully and did everything that they wanted me to, it would change them. It doesn’t. So, if you’re being bullied, don’t wait, tell your parents or an adult that you trust right away. Don’t try to do it all on by yourself. You don’t deserve to be treated like that by anyone!
