How to Deal With A Bully

Bully Me?

Imagine this. Today is the big day: B-ball tryouts and you are stoked. As you're warming up, a really good player (but a jerk) says to you in front of your peeps, "Oh C'mon (your name here), what are you doing here? You suck at basketball" They all laugh, you say nothing and try to pick up your face. If that ain't bad enough, you get picked on every day after that. Whazzup with that? What can you do?

Anti-Bully Skillz

Okay, if you want to be a better player, you practice. Here are some skillz you can practice to help you deal with bullies.

  • Ignore them. Remember bullies like attention. Don't give them a stage to be a clown.
  • Step up. If you are afraid, it's okay. Just use your fear to face them and not let them beat you down. I don't mean fight back with your fists, but use your mind. Keep your head up and be positive.
  • Speak out. Let your friends, moms and pops, teachers or somebody know that you are being bullied. They will listen and they will be able to help.
  • Spread luv. Lead by example. Don't put other people down cuz you feel hurt. Be nice and learn to laugh with your buds, not at them.
  • Luv yourself. When you give yourself the right props, nobody can make you feel bad. Wake up every morning, look in the mirror, smile and say, "It's going to be a good day".

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :)Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :) Yup! Thanks!

I have my earlobe pierced, and I'm considering getting a piercing elsewhere on my ear. I'm thinking my outer conch at the moment.  Do you have ear piercings? Where? What looks good to you? Any advice?
