Our tips for dealing with bullies : 
  • Don’t blame yourself. It is not your fault. No matter what someone says or does, you should not be ashamed of who you are or what you feel. 

  • Get help. Talk to a parent, teacher, or counselor. Seeing a counselor or therapist does not mean there is something wrong with you, sometimes its just helpful to get your feelings out in the open.

  • Deal with stress. Try to find ways to relieve stress, this can make you more resilient and less overwhelmed by bullying. Exercise, meditation, positive self-talk, muscle relaxation, and breathing exercises are all good ways to manage the stress from bullying.

  • Walk away from the bully. Bullies want to know they have control over you, try not to react with anger or retaliate with physical force. If you walk away, ignore them, or calmly and assertively tell them you’re not interested in what they have to say, you’re demonstrating that you're in control.

  • Protect yourself. If you can’t walk away and are being physically hurt, protect yourself so you can get away. Your safety is the first priority.

  • Be proud of you. Despite what anyone says, there are so many amazing spicy and beautiful things about you. Keep those in mind instead of the messages you hear from bullies.
