You begin to believe…
AUDIO RECORDING, PROFESSIONAL ACTOR
Bullying is a form of abuse, whether it be verbal, physical, or emotional. I believe that the cause, or one of the causes, of bullying is just to make yourself feel better. Sometimes it can be caused by jealousy and you want to feel like you are better than them. The impact bullying has on someone is enormous. You begin to believe all of the negative things people say about you and you begin to feel smaller. Sometimes this impact drives people to do drugs, or harm themselves, and at times, suicide. I remember experiencing a bit of bullying myself in grade seven. I was picked on for being friends with a handicapped person. It definitely was a poor decision for those people to pick on me for that. Handicapped people are just like us and they want to fit in just like everyone else.
