Cyberbullying leaves bruises on the inside, and you shouldn't judge others based on what you hear from others.

Cyberbullying can take several different forms. It doesn't always imply breaking into someone's accounts or pretending to be someone else. It also involves making disparaging remarks about others or spreading lies to defame them. “Cyber-bullying is an example of a phenomenon that has arisen as a result of technological and social media advancements. It has the potential to impact not only school-aged children but also anyone with a cell phone or access to the internet,” Andaya said. Since the bully does not have to face his or her target in person, online bullying and harassment can be easier to commit than other forms of bullying. Since everybody is engrossed in social media, it is very convenient for someone to abuse their access.


It's something that's put on the internet to hurt, harass, or upsetting someone else. Cyberbullying has become very popular in recent years. It involves acts of manipulation, harassment, and defamation directed at someone. Furthermore, it disrupts a person's mental peace. Many people have reported feeling depressed after being cyberbullied. Moreover, they engage in self-harm. People will be unable to speak up or try to solve a problem if they fear being laughed at or threatened by others. Cyberbullying can also lead to people taking their own lives in serious cases. They feel inferior as a result of the criticizing remarks made about them. According to UNICEF, online bullying can make you feel as if you're being bullied everywhere, including your own home. This can have a long-term impact and affect a person in a variety of ways, including psychologically, emotionally, and physically.



There are just as many causes for bullying as there are bullies. Some people fall into the pit of cyberbullying when they attempt to protect themselves or their friends when they are being criticized by others, aka when they are "called out." When a bully is chastised for saying anything hurtful to someone, it's natural for them to feel attacked. People who cyberbully want to prove that they have control and that they can get away with hurting others. This is frequently due to them having been humiliated by someone they know and believing that this is the only way to raise their pride, regain their trust, or express themselves. Some people do it for fun, and they find it amusing because they have an audience laughing with them, which encourages them to keep going.


Bullying on social media is considered a felony. Cyber-bullies who violate House Bill 5718, or the proposed "Anti Cyber-Bullying Act of 2015," will face penalties ranging from P50,000 to P100,000, or incarceration for six months to six years, or both, depending on the court's discretion.



If you are being cyberbullied, one of the most important first steps you can take is to communicate with a trusted adult – someone you feel comfortable talking to. It is not easy for anyone to speak with their parents. There are, however, things you can do to assist the discussion. When you know you have their full attention, pick a time to talk. Describe how serious the issue is for you. When an individual does nothing, they will believe that everyone is against them or that no one cares. Your words have the power to make a difference.


One of the reasons exposing cyberbullying is so critical is that we all want it to end. However, building the Internet we want entails more than just condemning bullying. We must be cautious about what we post or say that can cause harm to others. We must be kind to one another both online and in person. It is up to every one of us.
