I don’t exactly know why people choose to hurt others. Maybe they’re jealous of you, or don’t like you, or just have nothing better to do…But that is no excuse. No matter what the reason is for their actions towards you, it is not okay.
When people try to bring you down, you often question why, you? What have I done to them? And sometimes those questions remain unanswered because you’ve literally done nothing wrong. Don’t ever feel like it’s your fault, like you deserve it, like you’re unworthy, not good enough, or popular enough and that those are the reasons why they’re picking on you. Never believe what others tell you to try and break you because they’re wrong.
I know that sometimes it all gets too much and you just want to break down and show weakness. I know that it gets hard putting on a tough face all the time and holding it in. So don’t hold it in, let it all out- cry if you have to, talk to someone and tell them how you feel. Go out and do anything you enjoy, think of a happy memory- anything that takes you to a happy place. Deal with it in a way you feel safe and comfortable doing it. It’s okay. It does not make you weak, it’s understandable when you have people tearing you down.
Stay strong, ignore the people who are putting you down and don’t let them get to you. You may be able to work it out yourself, and that’s great but remember the person may not be willing to change. If things are getting out of hand and If you’re being bullied, in anyway- SPEAK UP. Please, tell someone. Get help. Don’t be afraid. A teacher, friend, parent, family member- etc. they’re there to help. Remember, you’re not alone.
Also, remember to never attack back. You’re not them. You’re better than that and you’re not a bully. You don’t need to pick on someone in order to feel good. Influence them into good behavior. Let them know that you will not be like them.
Sadly, bullies or just negative people are everywhere- school, work, online, etc. No matter where you’re being put down, remember to stand up for yourself and not let them get to you.
With that said, stay strong, confident and positive. Surround yourself with people who care about you. It may seem like everything is falling apart but I promise that it does get better. Don’t ever give up.
I don’t really care if I don’t know you personally- if you ever need anything/ anyone to talk to / feel alone. I would be more than happy to be a friend and talk to you.
