Personal Quotes (1)

I am confident with who I am and what I do. I think the best way to deal with bullying is to put yourself in the bully's shoes. What is happening in their life to make them say mean things? Maybe they're not happy with their home life. Don't try to solve this problem yourself, and definitely don't fight fire with fire. Talk to a trusted adult and have them advise you on the best way to deal with your situation.
