Bullied For The Past 3 MonthsBullyingBullied For The Past 3 Months<div class="ExternalClass278F88676E8E498CA232683329A108C0"><p style="font-family:georgia;font-size:16px;">​<span>I've been being bullied for at least the past 3 months. I've tried telling staff at my school but there had been little to no action, so earlier this week I took the initiative and emailed my principal the entire list of events, bringing into perspective the magnitude of the bullying. However, yesterday, my bully and a couple of her friends did something that should have never happened. My principal, as well as the high school assistant principal know; but I'm not sure they realized that the girl that was bullying me is the one that did it. </span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span></div><div class="ExternalClass00F7613C68344DE0AEF9AC535199D072"><div><div class="ExternalClass278F88676E8E498CA232683329A108C0"><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Thank you for reaching out to the Your Life Your Voice.

Bullying can be very painful. Just because you are being bullied, know Bullying happens to many people from all different walks of life, and can also take many different forms. Bullying can be very painful. Just because you are being bullied, know that it doesn’t mean you are less of a person. Generally the bully suffers from low-self-esteem or other issues, and bullying makes them feel better or and bullying makes them feel better provides some sort of control. However, this does not make it an appropriate way to act towards others.</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Even though you feel the school has not done much to help at this point, you made a great decision to speak to the principal about what is going on. They may not have done much that you can see, but it does not mean they aren’t monitoring the situation. If you believe the principal is not aware that the girl that is bullying you is a part of the incident that took place the other day, it could be a great idea to make sure they know and   continue to report incidents. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>While you can’t control the way others treat you. You can control how you act and that is the most important part. Reaching out to adults that can assist and support you is a great way to react. Reacting in anger usually encourages the bully to continue because it shows it has affected you, which is what they ideally want. It’s just as easy to say “ok” and walk away as any other reaction you could may have. In the end a calm reaction and walking away makes you the stronger person. </span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>W</span><span>e want to be a support for you.
