How do you feel about Cyber Bullying?

 

It was recently brought to my attention that Cyber Bullying is a serious, and sometimes deadly business. I never really knew what it meant…not by dictionary definition. I’ve been cyber bullied. I’ve had someone constantly try to bring me down, while I do the same to him or her. And believe me when I say, “It ain’t pretty!”

Until a few days ago, I had no idea how deeply these comments can penetrate into someone’s life. I had never known people actually care what others think of them. But that’s how I was raised, and thank God I was. If it had been different for me, it’s possible that I would be long gone by now. But there are some people who really die on the insides to be hurt that way.

After this problem was brought to my attention, I went straight to Google. I was astonished to see how often Cyber Bullying occurs. And even more surprised to see that people actually commit suicide over it. I was nearly brought to tears with each new story I read, and it really hurt me that this was a repeating thing.

What’s the point? Why would someone go so far? I know I’ve done my fair share of mean gossip, or what ever you want to call it…smack talk. But how could someone ever be so full of pure hatred towards someone? PEOPLE HAVE FEELINGS! What about all the cardinal rules, like treat others the way you want to be treated, or if you don’t anything nice to say don’t say anything at all? You only get one life, and every breath you waste on the negative makes life just that much more like hell on Earth.

There are always going to be bullies. There will never be peace. There’s always going to be at least one person, who messes it up for the world. But you, if you can just hold it in…if you can just care– just a little– about something other than the DRAMA, then you could be doing someone a huge favor, them and yourself. I know it hurts, when someone says those bad things, but is it really worth saying goodbye to everything? Just because someone, who you obviously won’t be talking to in the years to come, has nothing better to do than bring you down?

And in case you haven’t realized, I’m completely against Cyber Bullying.
