I’ve been receiving countless letters from readers who are having a hard time being bullied. Peta’s ex-boyfriend is bullying her at school, yelling horrible things about her in class. The other dancers in Brit’s class intimidate her to the point where she has stopped dancing. Marissa’s girl friends turned on her and now they are trying to make her school life miserable. Sadly, this is all so common.
Most of us have been in their shoes at some point in our life. I’d love for you to share your story, and leave supportive messages for these friends of ours in the comments below.
How did you get past being bullied? How did you stay strong? Who did you turn to? If you ever feel like you are in danger, please see a school counselor or tell another adult you trust immediately. You are important!
