Cyberbullying, Get A Life!


As a kid, I wasn't a fan of bullies; now I have to deal with it as an adult? There's been many occasions where I've been bullied on the Internet. Who knows what drives these people to do such things. I found a site to teach us and our kids how to deal with cyberbullies.

Hey girl, it happens to everyone. Don't let it get to you, remember they may take advantage of anonymity to bother you but there's a whole lot of technology out there that can peel that off. Also, you can use ti to effectively block them out of your life.

Whatever you do, keep a sense of humor about the whole thing. They want to intimidate and upset you. Don't let them. If you need any help with software, blocking, etc, my gtalk name is the same as the one I posted with.

Hai!

I completely understand. I was very much trolled over the summer. It stings and hurts. There is no excuse for it.

Hang in there. As .fs said, your humor and wit are your best defense.

There were days I wanted to disappear and cry under the covers. Eventually, my skin thickened and now I'm more confident than ever.

Those who troll obviously find what you say relevant, otherwise they wouldn't waste their time with you at all. Bathe in your intelligence, take stock in what you have to offer the world and realize that you...indeed...better than they are.

Oh...did I mention...laugh a lot?

Best wishes. And...if you ever need to vent, please don't hesitate to holler.
