JAN 4, 2019. Bullies hurt people—sometimes in ways others have never thought of like physical bullying, verbal bullying, cyber bullying, relationship bullying and many more.
If you're reading this, before you try to bully someone think twice because bullying is so bad that people now go to jail for it. Why? Because over 3.2 million students and others are being bullied each year and approximately 4,400 young people have committed suicide each year. But not only do they commit suicide they also drop out which affects their education.
The people who decide to bully others are most likely doing it for the enjoyment of it. Most bullies do what they do because they let their anger out on others to satisfy themselves.
If you're being bullied, don’t sit around and let people bully you. Tell a teacher, parent or guardian and get help so you don't have to go through being bullied.
