The importance of speaking out about bullying

You can't always hide away and try to pretend that nothings happening, because eventually someone will find out. Its better to tell someone you trust, like and adult (parents/guardians, teachers etc) in the beginning when someone or a group of people start to bully you, because then you won't have to deal with it that long so you can enjoy the beauty of life.

If you feel that you are being a bully

If you feel that you are being a bully then ask some of your friends if they feel that your being a bit mean. If they say yes then say sorry to everyone that you think you have hurt. If they say no don't worry about anything.

Also you can ask yourself some of these question

  • Does people get upset with you a lot
  • Do you spread rumours about others
  • Do you notice that people don't ask for your advice
  • Do you tease others

If you do most of these things then you might have to start thinking about how others feel. If you don't relate to most of these things then your fine.
