Interview with a blogger: The Crazy Bookworm! (Dear Bully Edition)

Alisha, over at Black Nailed Reviews interviewed me about bullying and my personal experiences. This is to promote the book Dear Bully: An anthology by 70 various young adult authors. To Learn more about Dear Bully, and my campaign Dear Bully: Blogger Edition, click HERE

How would you define a bully?

I would define a bully as weak. A person that has their own insecurities but feels the need to outcast others to make themselves feel better.

How old were you when the bully started?

I was in grade 1. Maybe 7 years old.


What is the most effective way to deal with a bully?

Ask them why? What is going on in their life that makes them take it out onto someone else. It is perfectly fine to stand up for yourself(without physical or verbal attacks). If that doesn't work then ignore them the best you can. They will give up eventually. Also, don't be afraid to reach out, let someone be aware of the situation.

What does being bullied teach the people who have experienced it?

I think for most people it teaches us to admire and appreciate the love we have around us from family and friends. It teaches us to take those unfortunate situations and apply them to make us the best people we can be. To strive and work hard for our dreams so we can show those bullies that we won at their game.

  1. Very sensitive and huge topic "Bullies". I believe it is getting out of control. I mean I remembered being bullied myself but I was always one to attack back. (not that it is good) But it made me feel better. this Bully epidemic is childish and for some reason I think the bullies will never learn.. BUT the ones being bullied have got to learn to stand up to them.. Bulling does not go away with age the only way to fight it is to stand up once and for all or stay seated for ever... Really great post.

  9. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or
    vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you're interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
