We all know someone who is not being treated the best around us, whether it is us, a friend, family member or the neighbor; it is human nature to judge what we do not understand but, that does not mean that it should continue to happen or should be ignored.
If you or someone you know is being bullied it is important to remind them that it is not a stage that is going to happen forever.
Things will get better and even though it seems like it never will right now, they will soon realize that the years of bullying are small compared to the time that we are here on Earth.
I do not think there is a single person on this planet who has not been bullied for some reason or another, it is an interest that unfortunately we all have in common.
There is no reason to panic, there are ways that you can make this time in somes life easier.
Spend time with them during and after school or work.
This is important for those who are being mistreated to feel like they have a time during the day when they can vent or not have to constantly walk on eggshells to feel safe.
It is important to not dwell on why you have decided to spend extra time with them, just let them enjoy the time that the two of you are together, so, they are able to keep their minds off of the bad and learn how to focus on the good of each moment.
Talk to their or you parents if you are still under the age of eighteen at the time, they can be the best help and give options that you might have never thought of; even though they did not grow up in the time that we did, does not mean that they did not experience bullying and hey, they might even have a few tricks up their sleeves that could make this part of their life easier.
Stand up for them.
It is almost impossible to watch another person twenty four hours a day but, when you are with them and you see that they are being mistreated by someone do not stay silent because if you do, you have just become as bad as the abuser.
You should always stand up for yourself or them, even if you are scared; you have to understand that if you are taking on the challenge of helping someone who is being abused, in their mind you just became their superhero and you have a job to maintain of making sure that they are safe and secure when you are present.
With the technology that we have in this day and age, there is no possible way to make sure that someone is not being abused every second of the day but, keeping yourself available to the victim can make them feel like they have a safe area, which can be the best thing for them at the time.
If all else fails or the person you are trying to help has been talking about hurting themselves or others, that is always something that you have to turn into a adult or boss, because you might not only be saving one life but, possibly hundreds.
