WHY I FOUNDED
LET'S DEFEAT BULLYING
Why I founded Let’s Defeat Bullying.
One of the main reasons why I founded Let’s Defeat Bullying is to encourage children to stand up for themselves when they are being bullied, and seek help. I know what it feels like when you are being bullied- how you dread going to school, how you feel helpless when you are being verbally abused and when you are being pulled down or cornered, and how your anxiety builds up. I’ve been through it.
It takes time to heal from the consequences of being bullied. It takes time to heal from that traumatizing experience, and it requires help and support from those who you trust. It requires strength, and eventually you will emerge as a strong individual. Instead of silently suffering, and slowly losing all your confidence, you need to ask for help.
Being bullied does not define us. We are stronger than that, and we will rise above it. We are all in this together, and we will get through this together.
The best piece of advice that I can ever give you is to seek help. Asking for help does not make you weak or a coward, instead it demonstrates your bravery and courage. Confiding in someone you trust will not escalate the matter, but instead mitigate it.
The bully is not stronger than you, and will never be. Instead, the bully is just a normal person like you, who faces everyday problems, and uses bullying as a mechanism to vent out his/her feelings.
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, AND WE WILL DEFEAT BULLYING TOGETHER!
