Anti-bullying week

#AntiBullyingWeek

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me…

According to bullies over the years, this is me:

Ugly

Four-eyes

Rubber-lips

Square

Dork

Dweeb

Loser

Slag

Arrogant

Mental

Deluded…

Unkind words hurt like a thousand cuts. Cuts that might seem superficial, but the wounds can be deep. They may never heal.

The worst trouble I’ve got myself into has been me trying to prove bullies wrong, that I’m not “square”.

Many of the above words were not said by school bullies. They were said to me in adulthood, by people who probably do not see themselves as bullies.

  1. I work in an office and see the most outrageous bullying go on every day. It makes me beyond furious; makes me want to stand on my chair and call out the behaviour, loudly for everyone to see.
    The injustice makes me feel like my head is going to explode..and Lord knows what kind of things I get called when I’m out of the room!
    You’re right that it cuts deep too.
