I often get bullied…about EVERYTHING! There have probably been lots of words written about the best way to deal with bullies, but I don’t think there is any one right answer. Every situation is different and every person is different. Someone calling you a loser in the cafetaria is different from getting beat after school. I think that the best thing to do is your best judgment. If you can throw a clever insult right back, then do it! Most bullies are cowards and are acting out from their own insecurities. If you feel that you are in danger be sure to tell a parent or a teacher, but if not, then there’s something to be said for learning how to stick up for yourself and letting lame name-calling roll off your back. In the end, it will just make you a stronger person and better prepared for the real world because, trust me, there are a lot of grown-up bullies out there too.
Have you ever been bullied? If yes, how did you deal with it?
