If you are reading this, then there is a good chance at some point or another in your life time you have been bullied for something.

You know then first hand, that it is something that you have never forgotten and it negatively has effected your life, maybe it has been etched into your mind as a memory that haunts you at two A.M, or maybe, the reason they bullied you has been something that makes you self aware of this flaw in yourself every single day and is still crushing your own worth of yourself.

Bullying is something that has no positive outcomes, no matter which way you look at the situation.

Bullying is the number one reason that so many people in this world are fighting depression, mental illness and suicide.

It might seem like nothing to the bully but, they are ruining the victims self worth, their reason to live and destroying the happiness in things that they used to find enjoyable.

There is no reason for it, other than the fact that people who are mean to others are trying to make themselves feel better.

There is an old saying that says, you have to make sure that you heal yourself from a wound inflicted onto you by others, because if you do not, you will find that you will soon be bleeding on people who did not cut you.

That saying, is the perfect way to explain a bully, they are someone who is hurting in some form or another and wish to inflict that pain onto other people, we all know that hurt people, hurt people.

No, it does not justify their actions and parents and school officials should have a program for bullies as well as victims, where they can go into seperate rooms and discuss what is going on in their life, whether they are the victim or the abuser.

A adult should be sitting in these meetings, allowing a trained ear to listen to signs of mental illness such as depression, anxiety or suicidal expressions.

These occurrences should then be passed onto a mental health professional, who will be able to get the person that is in trouble the proper amount of help and counseling, to ensure that the problem does not spread from person to person like the common cold.

Bullying will only stop when the adults of this world take a stand to ensure that their kid is not the one who is hurting others, which is a hard pill to swallow for a lot of parents but, getting to the heart of the reason will not only save their child from mental discomfort but, will always save all of the other kids who are being hurt due to your child’s pain.

Bullying is something that has been around for a long time, too long if you were to ask the victims, it is something that needs to be stopped to ensure that everyone is able to live a life that they are not only proud of but, one that they can be comfortable living inside of the haven of their own likes, beliefs and skin.

We are all different, if we were meant to all be the same, we would be, we need to stop putting each other down for what makes up different but, start lifting each other up for the things that separate us.
