#STOP BULLYING :KINDNESS IS ALWAYS IN FASHION

None is better..We are all the same..No matter what we look like on the outside or what color our skin is, we all end up being human.

Bullying can take many forms, but all forms of bullying cause harm. Even if there is no physical contact between a bully and their target, people who are bullied may carry the emotional damage of what they experienced for the rest of their lives. That is why it is important to put a stop to bullying.

No matter your race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, etc, we should all be equal and treated as such by one another, and in law. We can do anything we want in our lives but none has the right to hurt someone and judge him/her because he/she isn’t rich or thin or white or something else..We all live once and we should only think what we do in our personal life. Fashion is a world where we all feel free…We wear what we want and what we think express our personality.

For those of you who don’t know, I was severely bullied most of my childhood…from mean girls in school, to bullying via the internet: I’ve been through it all.The best thing we all can do is to never take seriously anything we hear from people…

“Just ignore it”

….is what most people are told when they’re being bullied, “they’re only jealous”, they say – but what use is that when you’re hurting and it’s making you feel bad about yourself? “Tell a teacher” is sometimes good advice but what about if your teachers don’t do anything? What if you’ve already told a teacher and it just got worse? What then? If you’re being bullied then you’re not the only one. In fact, our research shows that almost half of us, have at some point been bullied.

1.Bullying is a learnt behaviour.                                                                                      

There are several reasons why people bully others; more often than not, bullying can be a coping mechanism for people who are going through a stressful situation and it may be learnt from abuse or prejudice-based attitudes at home. Often people who bully are currently or have at some point been bullied themselves.

2. Never go through it in silence
When you’re going through a stressful or difficult situation, it can clog your mind and fog your vision. This leads to people becoming distracted, stressed and unproductive. Bullying is something that affects the majority of people but alarmingly, we find that 45% of those who experience it fail to report it through embarrassment, fear or a lack of faith in support systems. It is incredibly important that you go through the appropriate reporting channels by firstly telling a teacher/parent/guardian/learning mentor or another responsible adult.

3. Don’t see yourself as the problem
The reason people experience bullying is not because of their sexuality, gender identity, race, appearance, disability or any other unique factor; it is because of the attitude towards the factor. The only thing possible to change is attitudes. The person who is bullying you is the one with the issue, not you.

 

4.Deal with stress
When you are going through a stressful situation, it can be difficult to deal with it objectively if you keep it all to yourself. The stress navigates towards the front of your mind and builds up into a completely avoidable chain of negative emotions. It is therefore incredibly important to tell somebody that you trust, it doesn’t even have to be an adult, it could be a friend, and try to relax.

5.Surround yourself with people who treat you wonderfully.                                          You know the people who make you feel bad about yourself? It’s time to cut them out of your life. Being friends with people who treat you the way you deserve to be treated will increase your happiness and confidence. Ask your true friends to help you through this rough time.

”You are what you say”

Always remember that being different is something beautiful & unique..Love yourself and never be afraid to stand out and say who you are..be strong because none can hurt you if you won’t allow them..
