    Hmm.. I don’t know, I think some of these comments are perhaps perpetuating more bullying… I don’t think we should be thanking bullies for making life more difficult for us or anyone else. I think we should reserve “rising above things” for more serious issues like poverty or family problems i.e. Broken families
    Bullies shouldn’t get an influence in anything we do lets remind ourselves of our strengths because the bully wants us to forget we already have those.
