Many people think that most bullying is "teasing" or that it's a show of affection... that mentality needs to stop immediately. That's just another way to brush severe underlying issues under the rug and encourage victim blaming and shaming. Click here to read about the effects of bullying.
Mamma Z's goal is to encourage bullied victims to talk about their stories. No more being quiet. The more we talk, the more people listen, the more they learn that bullying is NOT okay.
What's your story? What did you do to overcome your bullies? Did you have someone you could trust to talk with? We'd love to hear your story in the comments. No more silence.
