How can you experience victory over bullying? Part of the solution is how you choose to react and seek support.
Recently a young jewelry designer took her own life, leaving behind notes describing how she’d been bullied by some co-workers and classmates in the fashion industry.
It’s a tragedy when someone takes his or her own life because of ill treatment by others. But everyone who is bullied can make a choice. If only that young woman could have turned her terrible experiences around, and positively helped herself and others who face similar circumstances by standing up, standing firm, and reaching out for help.
We believe God could have helped her get through that dark moment and find her way back into the light.
I’ve been bullied myself; I know it’s no fun.
So what can a bullied person do?
BULLIED NO MORE
Say enough is enough by your standing; not by your retreat.
Say enough is enough through your triumphs; not by your defeat.
Say enough is enough with your faithful friends standing up for you.
Say enough is enough by telling your mom and dad and teacher, too.
Say enough is enough by being you, not by returning hate.
Say enough is enough by rising above, instead of biting their bait.
No one can make you be less than you are. So remember when things get tough,
The ones who matter will have your back ‘cause enough is enough is enough!
