To all the bullies out there, who take pleasure in intimidation and crippling someone’s life up, if you’re filled with anguish at yourself or your life, who gave you the right to ruin someone else’s? One would only imagine you would be able to empathise with your victim.
To the strong warriors surviving wavelengths of torment, know that if you are labeled as different, it doesn’t set you apart from the rest. Instead, it makes you special. It makes you unique. Different is good . It gives you an identity. Not an empty shell.
Stand tall and brave, proud and acknowledge the fact that a bullies game is to break you down. DON’T accept the taunts. The more they repeat it, the more you should realise they’ve become desperate enough to not actually be able to find a fault within you.
You aren’t perfect but you are damn close enough. Wipe those tears away, crumple the fear down so it can’t bounce back up.
Block the people who put you down everywhere.
Report them. It’s one less bully in the world, and you’ve just saved another soon to be victim target.
Surround yourself with people that make you feel loved.
Listen to what I’m saying. You are not fat nor skinny. You are not stupid nor a geek, ugly, or fake. You are you – a girl/boy who has so much courage to get through every second of every hour of every day. Don’t let what anyone else get to your mind, to convince you that they are right because they are not. They are wrong.
You are loved and one day your bully will realise the cruelty of their ways. Until then carry on being the strong brave person you are.
And if you happen to be a bully, have a change of heart. Your words act like poison; they seep in deeply and slither around. It slowly kills you. Day by day until one day your victim is struggling to breathe their last breath. Your actions have consequences. There is no rewind button in life so think before you act. Nobody appreciates the damage you do, but you will earn yourself a lot more respect if you stop.
You’re all beautiful to me, chin up, and hold your head up high. You have a lot to live for so make the most of it whilst you can.
