Is it just me, or does the school OBSESS UNNECESSARILY over bullying? I mean, seriously. There are WAYYY more serious issues. Child abuse? Poverty? Domestic violence? Really. The only time the words of another have hurt me is when I read The Fault in Our Stars. :/

    Bullying is such a general term. Sometimes when bullying is reported, it’s about more than just words, but it should be made more specific for readers what the bullying consists of.

    BBC Health News, April 17, 2014:

    Child bullying victims still suffering at 50 – study

    Children who are bullied can still experience negative effects on their physical and mental health more than 40 years later, say researchers from King’s College London[…]

    Individuals were tested for psychological distress and general health at the ages of 23 and 50, for psychiatric problems at 45 and cognitive functioning, social relationships and well-being at 50.

    The study found that those who were bullied in childhood were more likely to have poorer physical and mental health and cognitive functioning at 50.

    Those who were bullied frequently were more likely to be depressed and have suicidal thoughts[…]

    Ella Says: Well, it’s a lot more serious than I thought. The school makes it seem so non-serious, despite their efforts.

    After being relentless bullied throughout K-12, when Facebook came along I discovered that those who bulled me were fighting their own demons. Doesn’t mean that I have forgiven or forgotten, but maybe karma does come around. Two are dead, one dying when he was 31. Three are in prison, seeming to indicate that those who bully when they are young will move on to more consequential acts of violence, for that’s all bullying is, is an act of violence.
