Sometimes I see kids sitting alone during lunch, sometimes i see kids who live in the shadows,
I see kids crying, and saying negative things to them just because of someones hurtful words or actions, I see kids shutting themselves out because they are afraid of being judged.
I keep saying someone should do something, but then I realized I
AM SOMEONE. I can do something!!! Some of you reading this might think how can I do something, I am just one person,
what difference can I make???
Well for starters you can not be a bully. Everyone has said something or done something once in there life that has hurt someone, that doesn't mean you're a bad person it just means you have made mistakes, which is part of being human and when we make mistakes its always good to say sorry even if you say it jokingly, the person might take it seriously, and start saying negative things to themselves. Second thing you can do is be a friend, trust me I don't expect you to be friends with everybody, but to be friendly to someone can make that person feel good about themselves and feel less lonely. Most people who are bullied become a bully, because they think that bullying people because of there in perfections will make them feel better as a person. Another thing you can do to make a difference is not being a BULLY TO THE BULLY. Because if you are a bully to the bully means you become a BULLY. The best way to handle a bully is to "kill them with kindness" and not let them get to you then the bully will see that what he or she is doing is not working and hopefully they will stop. Another way you can handle them ( and i know this is gonna sound weird ) is to become friends with them, that doesn't mean you have to be a bully with the bully or support them, it just means to get to know them better
because like I said they might be getting bullied ( outside of school maybe) and there probably just taking it out on other people, then maybe you can tell them what they are doing isn't cool, and they should stop, because you are there friend and they care what you think they will stop. If it gets really bad talk to a teacher parent
or a safe adult.
