There are many different types of bullying (physical, verbal, social, cyber) making for different types of bullies.

Students spend one third of their day in schools not to talk of boarding schools but unfortunately these institutions are the menace for this provocation.

The teasing and mockery by perpetrators who get off lightly only complicates the self perception and jeopardises the worth of the victims. These victims subconsciously accept these labels we put on them as a result of the indiscreet standards we have set for ourselves in various institutions so much so that they are hesitant to seek help.

Everyone needs an opportunity to express their opinions and ideas safely because sometimes when you give students the platform to share their opinions you give them an opportunity to be the best version of themselves.

Think.Before.You.Speak. Just.Pause.

“People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer.”

Dan Pearce

Our words are powerful, they can hurt and encourage, they can build and collapse, our words can speak life. Be responsible for your words.
