“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” Harvey Firestone Stay Strong We all go through difficult times in our lives. During these difficult times, try to be positive, and stay strong.  Put your time and energy into activities you enjoy or feel passionate about.  Surround yourself with positive, supportive people.  Talk to your family and friends about what’s happening in your life. Talking helps put things in perspective, and it gives your family and friends an opportunity to offer their support.  If you feel physically vulnerable, take a self- defense or martial arts class.  When life gets you down, sometimes the best thing to do is to focus on helping others. Volunteer at an animal shelter or nursing home.  Expand your interests. Do something new.  Use positive self-talk. “I can handle this.” “I am a good person.” “I can rise above this.” High School InfoGuide Bullies and Bystanders www.woodburnpress.com Copyrighted Material 693-17 WOODBURN PRESS ©Copyright Woodburn Press LLC all rights reserved This digital publication was presented by:
