I heard a cool quote before and it made me think. the quote was ‘Calling someone ugly won’t make you more beautiful’. how true is that? we had a visiting play at our school today called the hurting game. It was really good and one of the issues it addressed was bully’s only bullying people because they have insecurities themselves. Teasing someone or calling someone names won’t get rid of your problems. It will give you a momentary burst of feeling better but in the end you will have made someone else feel like crap and you’ll still have your insecurities. instead of calling someone fat or ugly or a nerd, give them a compliament. Even if it is just that they did well on the last test, or congratulating them on an award they received they’ll feel better and so will you. Just think about it. Which would you rather have said to you, ‘you’re a fat loser’ or ‘ wow, you did super well on that test’ (Not said sarcastically). It just goes back to those old sayings, ‘Treat others how you would like to be treated’ and ‘What goes around comes around’ because one day, someone bigger and better than you will come along and then you’ll know how it feels to be bullied. It doesn’t feel good and we need to get along. Just saying one nice thing, or even easier than that, just saying hi to someone that you don’t normally speak to might make their day and i bet you’ll be surprised at how absolutely fantastic you feel. Go on, it’s a challenge. I want you all to say something nice, or just speak nicely to someone that you wouldn’t normally talk to. You’ll be amazed….
Love and saying nice things,
