What do Steven Spielberg, Christian Bale, Taylor Swift, and Bill Clinton all have in common? Aside from being famous people, they all overcame bullying growing up.
In this episode from Watchwellcast, you’ll learn what to do if you’re being bullied. With this simple 4-step process, you should be able to boost up your self-confidence, protect yourself from harm, and find the help you need.
While grade school and high school can put a lot of pressure on you to fit in, the rest of your life’s success is based a great deal on your ability to stand out and be unique! If you’re getting picked on for being different, you’re actually a step ahead of the game.
Speaking of steps, let’s get right into the 4 suggested steps you should follow to stop bullying.
Step 1: Realize that this isn’t your fault. When someone is picking on you it has a lot more to do with their personal issues than it has to do with you. Try writing down all your great qualities that make you stand out from your peers. The next time you’re being bullied, remember this list because the things you wrote down are a reflection of who you really are.
Step 2: Build your army: Not a literal army, but try to surround yourself with a group of people who appreciate and care about you. If you’re having a tough time building this circle of friends, seek out people that have similar interests as you.
Step 3: Treat a bully like a grizzly bear: One of the best anti-bullying tactics is simply to ignore your bully. By resisting the urge to respond, you’ll deny your bully of the reaction they’re looking for and they’ll end up moving on. In addition to this, try to avoid 1-on-1 interaction with this person and travel in packs.
Step 4: Find someone you can talk to: As Watchwellcast says, “Nobody has the right to make you feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or unhappy”. Find a person you can trust, and tell them what has been going on. Whether it’s a friend, family member, teacher, or counselor, you need to tell someone.
Implement these steps and you should feel well equipped to deal with your bully the next time they strike.
