Good morning, Cambie! It’s Wellness Wednesday, and here is your announcement.
If you are looking to stop bullying, there are several things you can do:
- Admit to yourself that you’re bullying. Think about what you are doing to others. This will help you understand what to avoid when moving forward.
- Understand why you are bullying. Are you bullying because you are struggling with something and taking it out on someone else? Is it because your friends are bullying others? Talk to a trusted adult or contact Kids Help Phone anonymously to discuss why you are bullying.
- Apologize and give space to the people you have bullied. The person(s) you bullied may not be ready to talk or be around you. They also might not be ready to forgive you. Put yourself in that person’s shoes and think about the best way to move forward from their perspective.
As well, remember that it's never too late to make a positive change even though it may take time for others to heal and forgive.
For more information, visit foundrybc.ca or see Ms. Wilding in the counselling centre.
