Perhaps you’ve one of thousands of people who typed, “I am getting bullied’ into your search engine these last 30 days because you’re tired of the name calling, the abuse, and you don’t think you can take it another day. I understand how you feel, and I want you to know there is hope for those who are being bullied.
First of all, not everyone hates you. I don’t hate you (which is why I wrote you this note) and neither does God hate you, plus there are many people in your life who really do care about you. Secondly, those names you’ve been called do not belong to you. For instance, if I took a sticky note and stuck the word ‘CAT’ onto a dog’s forehead –would that word turn the dog into a cat? Of course not.
So what should you do if someone called you a name and now you start to believe you are that name? Don’t own it. Those names do not describe who you are at all. In fact, I have a BIG ERASER named love and I’m erasing that name(s) off of you right now. And do you know what I see beneath those false labels? I see you–a real and wonderful person. That’s why those labels cannot stick. Would you be interested to know that God has other labels or words to describe you?
God’s labels for you areprecious, loved, beautiful, smart, full of promise, a miracle, and wonderful.
Seriously! That’s how God sees you, and that’s how I see you too. ; )
I’m so sorry you are being bullied, and it hurts my heart to think that people have been cruel to you and know that I believe they were WRONG to do that to you. But maybe it would cheer you up to read a few more things God has said about you:
- You are my child.
- I love you.
- My son Jesus died on the cross for you so you could have a relationship with me.
- You are forgiven.
- I am with you.
- I will help carry your pain if you let me. Just ask for my help!
- Cast your burdens on me.
- I will get you through this. Just follow me, one step, one day at a time!

Help Me I’m Being Bullied Song
Also watch this GREAT YouTube. It’s a song called Who I Am by Katie Belle Atkin that tells what happened to her.
I love you! And so do many others, even if you can’t ‘feel’ that love right at this moment or even if you believe that those terrible words spoken about you are true. (THEY ARE NOT!) However, if you are in danger of harming yourself, DON’T! Don’t let the bullies win.
You are stronger than you know and you will get through this period of your life and you will find happiness and have friendships with people who are not bullies. You have hope and a future and I know God has a special plan for your life. In fact, Jeremiah 29:11 says (from God to you,) ”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)

Here’s a prayer to break lying words off of you:
Dear Lord,I break the lying words that people are saying about me off of me in the power and authority of the name and blood of Jesus. I ask that you replace those words with the loving words you use to describe me; precious, loved, beautiful, smart, full of promise, a miracle, and wonderful. Give me your power, strength and truth to believe your words instead of the lies. Please block and cancel the lying words and thought of suicide off of me – in the power and authority of the name and blood of Jesus. Thank you for giving me a hope and a future. In Jesus name, Amen.
