Online Bullying Guest Article: “Don’t Be Afraid To Say No” | Bullyish Community
This article was submitted to Project: Bullyish.
As uncomfortable as it sounds, I was traumatized at work while getting cyber bullied on Facebook.
I was in high school. I didn't feel at home at my new school. At the time, I was also having difficulty making friends.
My cousins invited me to a house party after school, one day. I remember being peer pressured into drinking and ended up puking.
Six years later, I was on my break.
I liked a girl's picture from my friend's list on Facebook.
Her friend saw my like on the photo, and called me out.
While all this was happening I was at work stressing myself out. I had to stop and relax.
I had to put my phone down until I got off work.
At the time I was putting myself down. I had to remind myself, not to get worked up in this “high school drama.”
At the end of the day, I ended up unfriending those people. I didn’t want them to manipulate me in any way! It was not worth my time or energy.
Don’t be afraid to say “no” even if it's your family.
