Standing Tall – 4 tips on dealing with school bullies

Standing Tall - Bully

School bullies are a worldwide phenomenon. No matter the school or country, there’s always this mean kid who gets away with everything. These bullies either physically abuse other kids, or surprisingly even worse, taunt, tease and threaten others. That in effect results to the loss of self-esteem issues, moral rules are forgotten and social standings are shown to be just as bad and distorted for the victims.

Yet all is not lost. If you think you are being bullied, there is still hope for you. The common adage “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” may not ring true to you, but you can take a stand against these school monsters.

 

Standing Tall Stop

Here are a few tips to help you stand tall against school bullies:

Talk
If bullies taunt and tease you all the time, try to always consider talking. Don’t talk back to them though! School fights are commonly started by misunderstandings and misinterpretations. If a bully teases the way you wear your hair, explain to them why you wear it like that in the first place. Or if a bully talks you down every single time you meet, explain to them that you don’t appreciate him doing that. Sometimes, a simple explanation on how things work may show wonders.

Show
And in dealing with bullies, try to literally stand tall. Body language is a direct reflection of one’s personality, or what he or she is currently thinking. So it really wouldn’t help if you keep a slouched posture all the time. Standing tall will not only help you on standing up to bullies – it’ll help you to build up confidence needed in school, and most importantly in life.

Ignore
If the words – and worse, beatings – won’t stop, ignore them. Simply walk away from the bullies. They may not stop shouting hurtful words at you, but stand tall and walk away. Ignoring the words and running away from beatings may seem like you’ve lost a battle. Actually, it’s not. Always think that there’s more to life than what you’re currently in right now.

Share
Most importantly, share with a friend – preferably an adult – that you’re being bullied. This will help you relieve all the pent-up anger and frustration you’ve kept in your chest for so long. Talking and sharing the hurtful events in your life will prove to be one of the best things you’ll ever do.

 

Standing Tall No bully

It’s a hard phase and place in life when you need to deal with a rock such as a school bully. But by standing tall and never giving up, you’ll soon get past this stage in life.
