Hey, so it is a new year and everything and like it is really daunting facing some bullies that have been blaming me for everything and hurting my feelings to the point that I cry in my room every night. Is there some advice you can give me to handle these feelings of shame or even fear.
Hi Frances, first of all, I'm so sorry to hear that this is happening to you, no one should ever go through that and especially not alone. Have you talked to your teachers or parents? They should always be the first port of call when dealing with something like this if you feel comfortable doing so. I would also look at this website if you feel safe doing that (https://www.childline.org.uk/info-advice/bullying-abuse-safety/types-bullying/bullying/), there is some more professional advice on how to cope with different types of bullying. As for you feeling upset at night, try to distract yourself if you can! Look at pictures of cute dogs and cats, listen to some uplifting music and repeat positive mantras in your head. You should never ever feel ashamed of being bullied, this is absolutely not your fault, bullies can be nasty people who are usually just insecure themselves. Please, don't feel ashamed, there really is no reason to be. I hope this helps, Kaitlyn x
