We Can Do This!

10 Jul

Thanks to those that got involved in this post!! 🙂

I know it can seem like the whole World is against you and that you are the only person going through the hard times, while everyone else is having a great time, but really.. are they? :/
It can seem like you are the only person who feels how you feel, and you just want to escape, you just want a break away from everything for a while. You are not alone, no matter what you are going through, someone else is going through it, or has been through it too. You have to stay strong, and believe in yourself because YOU CAN DO THIS!!
It may seem that things will never get better, but believe me, they do

Here are a few statistics i found –
1 million people across the globe die by suicide each year. That’s one suicide every 40 seconds. (from samaritans.org)
244,000 people under 19 are carers – about 23,000 are under nine. (from bbc.co.uk)
– The UK has one of the highest rates of self harm in Europe, at 400 per 100,000 population. (Self-poisoning and self-injury in adults, Clinical Medicine, 2002)
– Almost half (46%) of children and young people say they have been bullied at school at some point in their lives.

I know its hard, but if we can get through it then anybody can, stay strong, and remember, you can do this!
Stay Strong ❤

we can do this
Thanks for reading!

You Are Not Alone. Some Statistics.

6 Feb

You are never going through this alone. So many other people are going through it too.

Bullying in school.
– 69% of children in the UK report being bullied
– 87% of  parents report that their child had been bullied in the past 12 months
– 85% had witnessed bullying
– It is estimated that at  least 20 children and adolescents a  year commit suicide because of being bullied
– 1 in 3 young people  who experience bullying truant from school
– 20,000 young people  truant everyday as a result of bullying
(Statistics from Beatbullying.org)

And it isn’t just children and young people being bullied..

Bullying in the workplace
– 18.9 million working days are lost each year as a direct result of workplace bullying
– More than two million people at work consider themselves as being bullied
– 43.5% of employers do not have a policy to deal with workplace bullying
– 82.2% say that weakness in management is the prime reason for bullying
(Statistics from personneltoday.com)

These statistics might even be wrong because a lot of people keep quiet about bullying, or don’t think that they are being bullied when really they are.

Bullying leads to suicide, self harm, eating disorders, people running away and lots of other problems. When is it going to stop?

Stay Strong.
You are better than the bullies.

Hold Onto Your Self Esteem.

7 Jan

Bullying is a big cause of eating disorders. Beat interviewed more than 600 young adults suffering from anorexia, bulimia or binge eating. Ninety one percent of these teens said they had been bulled, and almost half said they believed that bullying had contributed to their eating disorder.

“Bullying lowers your self-esteem and having low self esteem is a really big risk factor for an eating disorder developing,”

When you call someone fat so many times they’ll start to believe it.

Some people find that eating disorders give them some sort of control over something, and also they may see this as a way to stop the bullying if they bullies are saying that they are fat.
I was called fat, and i have problems with eating, i haven’t actually been diagnosed with an eating disorder but i’ve lost a lot of weight since they started calling me fat.

Beat provides helplines, online support and a network of UK-wide self-help groups to help adults and young people in the UK beat their eating disorders. http://www.b-eat.co.uk/

Don’t let them break you down.
Stay strong and hold your head high.

Never Think You’re Alone.

6 Dec

I know it can seem like you’re the only person being bullied but you’re never the only person. So many people get bullied everyday.
They may call you names but nobody is perfect and the things they say won’t be true. They have no reason to bully anyone and you are not to blame.
Don’t keep it to yourself, tell someone and get it stopped. Nobody should have to put up with this but i know that some people will be too scared to tell someone but you shouldn’t let them control your life and they should be stopped.

Bullying In Schools:
– 38% of young people have been affected by cyber-bullying.
– Almost half (46%) of children and young people say they have been bullied at school at some point in their lives.
(Stats from nspcc.co.uk)

Bullying In Work:
– More than two million people at work consider themselves as being bullied
-43.5% of employers do not have a policy to deal with workplace bullying
(stats from personneltoday.com)

Stay Strong. Don’t Let Them Win.

Who Said It Stops After School?

5 Dec

“It’ll stop when you leave school” thats what i used to get told, but now that i’ve left school it still happens.
I was looking at some charities against bullying and some of them are only for young people up to the age of 18, but what about the people 18+? Are they trying to say that people over the age of 18 don’t get bullied?
I know so many people who get bullied in the workplace. Just because we’ve left school doesn’t mean that we will never get bullied again.
— 18.9 million workplace days are lost each year as a direct result of workplace bullying .
— More than 2million people at work consider themselves as being bullied.
(stats from personneltoday.com)

I don’t understand how they could want to hurt people. How could you want to lower someones self confidence until they can’t even look at themselves anymore.

I thought maybe it was because of:
– Peer pressure, young people want to be ‘cool’ so they do things that maybe they’d never usually do just to be accepted.
– They may of been bullied themselves, so they put on this ‘mask’ of being the bully so that there is a chance that they won’t get bullied.
But i have no idea why they would do it in the workplace and when i would of thought they’d grown up.

Stop Bullying And Grow Up 🙂

The truth.

5 Oct

Bully victims are between 2 and 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims.
A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying.
Nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying.
160,000 kids stay home from school everyday because of fear of bullying.

If only we could stop bullying and stop more suicides by young people.
The bullies don’t realise what they can cause the victims to do to themselves.

Together we can make a difference.
