What bullying may teach us about our selves.

There are many times when life will get you down. I am here to show you a new way to look at the world and life around you.

I have faced many a time when the world seemed cold and bare. But there is a problem we can start to fix. People all over prey on those who are weaker than themselves. They hurt and hunt others that so they may not have to face what they already know deep inside.

Bullying is a real problem that needs to be faced. Schools are being plagued by it, and though people try to help, this problem, like so many others, must be stoped at the very source. Though all that antie bullying methods in use help, what needs to be understood is that action s may hurt for a bit, possibly even scar, but the power in words is far greater. Though society has turned this state into something cheesy Ana’s expected, these words are still true, and we have to stop seeing them as what we are told as children, but as what was once thought by only one person, but now is in the minds of many, even if they don’t believe them.

Words can never be taken back, and almost nothing can heal them over properly. They can’t just be brushed off, no matter how hard anyone tries. 

Words have power that man hasn’t been able to recreate any other way. They can heal, hurt, scar, convince, persuade, lead, transform, transport and connect. They give our lives some meaning. You see movies where people are cursed or something, so they can’t talk, but we never think about what would happen if everyone just forgot exactly how to speak, if everyone thought every word m3ant something different. If that happened, we would be doomed. No one could take the lead and no one would be able to communicate their ideas to anyone else. Everyone would perish for no one would able to do any of these things.

Words are often used as weapons when people are to scared to use actions. Cyber bullying is an example of this. People to scared to use actions to hurt someone, which is odd, since often, the cyber bully wouldn’t know or really care where their messages are going, or they’re going to hit in the end. 

People scar other people without even thinking about what they’re doing. Humankind is full of those kinds of people, and they just about spoil the race. But everyone needs to take a look at themselves, to take a look at what they say and do, to really, truly, watch their actions. To see themselves as if through a mirror.

But some, even with this information, are simply afaird to face themselves. Face their actions, to look at themselves through a mirror, like anyone else that they are surrounded by. There isn’t much I can say to this, other than the only way the situation that we have dug ourselves into is going to get better is if we truly face what we say and do. If we face ourselves in whatever state we have put ourselves. If we fixed the mistakes we have made.
