Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6Things to Remember If you or a friend are being targeted, tell yourself (or your friend) to do the following:  Believe in yourself. Remind yourself of your positive traits and replace any negative thoughts with positive self-talk. “I’m a good person.” “I am strong.” “I can handle this.”  Put it in perspective. In the course of your entire life, how long will this phase last? If you can rise above this, the skills you learn may help you later in life.  Don’t take it personally. Remember, it’s the bully who has a problem, not you. Although it’s hard to feel sorry for bullies, just remember that if bullies were happy, they wouldn’t feel the need to hurt others. “Everyone has in them something precious that is in no one else.” Martin Buber
