Tonight on Netflix I watched the ABC Family show Cyberbully. It made me realize that lately I have been too critical and judgement of others and not kind and caring enough. As someone who has been teased and tormented all my life I know how hard it is to get back up after someone belittles you to the point where you no longer want to go on. I know how worthless one feels after relentless mockery. Instead of turning around and doing exactly the same to another helpless person I have decided to take a stand against bullying both cyber, emotional and physical. I will do this by not talking ill of others no matter what the situation. I will be kinder to those I interact with and help others while they are down; because everyone is carrying some sort of baggage.
I have always been able to let things people say and do roll of my shoulders, pick myself back up and keep being the happy go lucky person most people see. But out of everything in my life, the teasing and tormenting has been the hardest part. I don't ever want to be the cause of another person's hurt. I have to apologize if I have ever acted rude, or hurt anyone; never was that my intent. We are all God's children and should be respected and treated as such. To end I have a music video by Megan and Liz against bullying...

"What happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusak holding a boom box outside my window. I want to ride off on a lawn mower with Patrick Dempsy. I want Jake from 16 Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist in the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie."
