If you are looking for advice on how to respond to bullying, it may be wise to read a bullying story that offers a true account of someone’s experience in this matter. It is widely known that bullying leaves a permanent mark on one’s behavior and that it can have numerous negative effects: eating and sleep disorders, irrational fears, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxieties, low self-confidence, and low self-image etc. This makes reading about bullying and learning about various ways of fighting it a very important task all of us should accomplish.
Victims feel uncomfortable and unworthy, blame themselves for the problem and often refuse to talk to anyone about it or to ask for help. Gradually over time, victims lose friends and start finding it increasingly difficult to make new ones, so they feel lonely, abandoned and unloved, which can lead to additional problems that persist through life.
Secondly, even though a bullying story may contain a lot of terrible descriptions of suffering and abuse, it is nevertheless recommendable to read, because it will show the victim that he or she is not alone, that other people have experienced the same or even worse problems and have found successful and efficient ways of dealing with them and returning to normal life after a period of struggle. This optimistic ending inspires hope and gives strength to those who need it the most.
