Not long ago I was talking to one of my best friends about bullying, usually I don’t talk to him about bullying in person because the day is usually really good when I see him but it was different. During that day someone had said something really horrible to me and it got to me, him being who he is was there for me like he always is. We started talking about what happened but ended up talking about bullying in general. The past was brought up and I ended up talking to him for a hour about it. He didn’t say what everyone else usually says, “ignore it”. In fact we were talking about when I used to get pushed down and he said something very interesting to me, it’s been stuck in my head for ages. He said, “See you’ve been pushed down, you just need to get yourself back up, you’re still down now, you just need to get back up. I think you can do it, it’ll all be better soon.” When people say things to me like that it really sticks and I’m really grateful for the ones that do say things like this. He knows who he is.
The point of this post was to tell people that even though their going through a tough time, I promise it does get better. I know when my friends say that to me I don’t really listen and I think it’s the end of the world but I’m starting to believe myself that when something goes wrong it does get better because its the truth. It’s just a bump in the road. All you have to do is get back up again. Show them bullies who’s boss and don’t let them see that they are hurting you, good luck!
