Bullying is a trend that has been very rampant in our high schools.This has been in existence for so many years. It used to be physical bullying in the olden days. There were certain people who ruled the school. Today, schools have banned such barbaric behaviors. Such bullying would lead to very severe consequences.
However, bullying is still going on in schools. It has a new face. Students are still under the mercies of these bullies for four years. Psychological bullying is the new monster in our high schools today. Bullies no longer beat you or give you self diminishing tasks. None the less, they still make you wish life would end soon. Psychological bullying involve body shaming, social segregation and cyber bullying. Bullies find a weakness in you and exploit it. This may seem all fun and games to them but it will cost someone’s life.
Research shows that bullies actually suffer from low self esteem. In order to mask how they actually feel about themselves, they focus attention on someone else. They try to avoid any negative attention directed at them by deflecting.
The fight against bullying is one that never ends. It all starts within yourselves. If you believe you are the best version of yourself, then there will be no desire to feel superior. It is a fight for everyone in the society.
