Bullying is intentional and repeated behaviour targeting a specific person or group of people, that is intended to embarrass, threaten, hurt or intimidate the person being bullied. It may happen in person but can also happen out of sight or online.
The experience of being bullied is different for everyone. People may feel alone, anxious, scared, miserable and powerless, while others may feel overwhelmed by sadness, ashamed or rejected. They may feel there is no escape from the bully or that there is no hope that things will change.
If You Are Being Bullied
It’s important to remember that if you are being bullied it is not your fault. There is nothing wrong with you; it is the result of someone else’s behaviour, attitude or beliefs.
Don’t be afraid to let someone know that you are being bullied as soon as it starts happening, especially if you feel like it is having an effect on your mental health.
