The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself Tell the bullies:My self-worth is not linked to your cruel words and action. My self-esteem is not affected by your deliberate attempts to destroy my character. You have no power over me. You will not silence me. Stand up for yourself!
-Anita Kanitz

Empathy Is The Antidote to Bullying

It’s all about empathy. We need to create more opportunities to teach empathy to our children – and to each other as well. We need to have compassion for ourselves as victims of bullying (no matter how long ago it occurred) and remember that harm caused by others may hurt us, but it can’t define us.

We need to stand up to bullies and find the courage within ourselves to defend the defenseless. And — as tough as it may seem — we also need to have empathy for bullies themselves as much as possible. Typically people bully others because of an emptiness or pain they experience themselves — and although their behavior is never acceptable, if we are able to treat the mental health of those who bully, we may be able to decrease bullying behavior.

The problem of bullying runs deep and is multi-faceted for sure. And putting an end to it is definitely an uphill battle. Let these wise quotes about bullying serve as important reminders and encouragement as we all work together to end bullying.

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, writer, and science communicator
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou, poet, memoirist, Civil Rights activist
“We focus so much on our differences, and that is creating, I think, a lot of chaos and negativity and bullying in the world. And I think if everybody focused on what we all have in common – which is – we all want to be happy.” – Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, TV host, writer, and actress
“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” – Michael J. Fox, actor and activist
“I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” – R.J. Palacio, author; quote from her book, Wonder
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” – Desmond Tutu, South African theologian and anti-apartheid, human rights activist
“Every time you post something online, you have a choice. You can either make it something that adds to the happiness levels in the world—or you can make it something that takes away.” – Zoe Sugg, fashion and beauty Vlogger and writer
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” – Judy Garland, actress and singer
“Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.” – Lady Gaga, singer-songwriter and actress
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” – Mary Anne Radmacher, writer

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

Albert Einstein

Who wants a peaceful world with justice, must work for a peaceful world with justice.

My son was cruel bullied, beaten and slandered at school. I was bullied at the workplace in an heinous kind and also stalked privately and on the Internet. I was private a victim of gang stalking, online harrassment, identy theft, online slandering, hacking attacks, death and rape threats, telephone terror and damages of property.

No one helped us, no one has done anything. All administrative receiver points have failed. In the case of my son teachers, school management, administrative terms, parents' council, lawyers, legal, in my case superiors, personnel office, works and stalking counseling centers.

This is a social indictment and has to change!

No place to bullies and stalkers in this world, do not support these psychopaths and sociopaths. Today, we have to change that, and the survivors of these crimes must get all legal and socially support that is possible.

Together we can create a better world, if we only want to do it.
