    Be a Light for Others and Help Stop Bullying

    Ladies, most of you will be starting school in the next couple of weeks, if you haven’t already. As you transition back into your usual day-to-day activities, I want to offer you a quick reminder of how you can be a light for others in your school when it comes to bullying. Bullying has become a big issue in many schools today and it affects both girls and guys.

    It’s not easy to step up and stand up for others. But if we don’t, who will? As Christians, we are called to help others, and to share Jesus’s love, mercy and compassion.

    Check out the following clip by The Skit Guys!

    Open your mouth for the mute,
    For the rights of all the unfortunate.
    Open your mouth, judge righteously,
    And defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.
    (Proverbs 31:8-9)

     

    Ladies, do you know someone who is bullied at your school? Have you thought about how you can be a light in that person’s life? Share your story—we love hearing from you!

    1. I was always bullied when in school.
      When I see someone getting bullied or sitting alone, I invite them to sit with me. I also like to smile at them and ask them how their day is going. I can talk a lot and I care for and about people.
      Since I was depressed and stuff, I don’t want people to go through that. I’ve also invited them to youth group and to become a member on PI.

    2. I was bullied for 3 years during middle school, I was really hurt that time I remembered I had to bite my tongue just to keep myself from crying. What I can’t forget is the prom night. They planned not to dance me a long time before the prom. As long as I can remember, I felt so depressed that time. Neither did my friends nor my family knew about it. Which is my big mistake. I should have told them.But I was afraid to what people were going to say about me.Now, I am able to live so happily because of Jesus, he saved me from anger, insecurity and hatred. Though, I’m not saying that this is an overnight process. It took me so many years to overcome the scars bullying has left me. I had severe trust issues (which I’m still working on now), I had troubles making intimate friendship and most of all it became so hard for me to be confident with myself.I became people pleaser and I always think of others happiness before me (which is not bad) but I’m doing that out of the fear they might hate me. But if there are lessons I have learned, that is to stay kind no matter what(But stand up for yourself,too!). Those bullies, as far as I know, they have family problems, as they say, hurt people hurt people. I just tried to understand them. Last thing, please don’t let your heart be filled with anger and bitterness. Please, do yourself a favor by forgiving them. Forgiveness does not mean you need to be friends with them, it does not also mean it won’t hurt. Offer it to God and let Him help you through the process.Love yourself, because you deserve the love you’ve been trying to give to everyone else. God bless!
