Bullying, Not Cool


Cloe here.

My brother Jack died today. He got bullied and he… killed himself…

Sometimes you will never know what you have until it’s gone… Forever and ever…

I saw him… Hanged himself up… In front of me… 😦 😦 😦

The kids in school call him names and text him messages and said mean stuff to him…

But he didn’t tell me or my dad & mom… He chose to hide it and afford it by himself…

I miss you, Jack. I always will… You will always be remembered in my heart, forever it stays.

Today, I’m not just here to say the story about my brother.

I’m here to talk about bullying…

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

I used to be bullied in pre-school. The kids were teasing me because I’m not white and I’m Chinese… Sometimes you might not mean bullying others, but lots of times you might really hurt that person you just called ASS HOE today.

A bully is a person who

-has never learnt to accept responsibility for their behavior.
-wants to enjoy the benefits of living in the adult world, but who is unable and unwilling to accept
the responsibilities that are a prerequisite for being part of the adult world.
-abdicates and denies responsibility for their behaviour and its consequences (abdication and denial are common features of bullying)
-is unable and unwilling to recognise the effect of their behaviour on others
-does not want to know of any other way of behaving
-is unwilling to recognise that there could be better ways of behaving.

God bless,

-Cloe
