Bullying happens everywhere. It is such a horrible thing to go through.I know the feeling because I went through this when I was at primary school and high school,just because of my skin color. It was tough but eventually got through it and by the time when I finished high school the bullying stopped and i had started having good friends .
So what is exactly bullying? Bullying is when someone is being hurt by words or action on purpose,usually more than once. The person feels bad because of it and has a hard time stopping what is happening to them.
There are different types of bullying such as physical bullying, verbal bullying, social bullying, cyber bullying.
Physical bullying is when someone is hitting, kicking,tripping,pinching and pushing or damaging property. It can cause both short term and long term damage .
The verbal bullying is when someone is name calling, insults, teasing, racist remarks. Verbal bullying can affect ones’s self mage and affect someone in emotional and psychological ways. This type of bullying can lead to low self-esteem, as well as depression and other problems. In some cases verbal bullying can reach a point where the victim is so depressed and wants to escape so badly, that he or she may turn to substance abuse or in some extreme cases suicide.
