Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior involving a
real or perceived power imbalance. The intimidating
behavior is often repeated over time and is harmful.
Bullying includes actions such as making threats,
spreading rumors, verbal and physical attacks, and
excluding someone from a group on purpose, especially
if they are perceived as weak or have a different
viewpoint than their peer group and disagree.
I believe bullying is an worldwide epidemic. A lot of
people attack and slander others for no reason. It’s
childish and unkind. Kids often bully since they learn it
from their parents, guardians or peer group. Many are
scared to speak up to avoid further attacks and harm.
Some people who are constantly bullied are suicidal.
More free help and education is needed to teach
children, teens and adults who bully and are bullied. It
is harmful and can even be deadly in some cases. My
friends, family and I have experienced this and I’ve had
enough. If you are being bullied, speak up and
seek help. Please feel free to share your stories.
