1. Stand Up to Bullying and Stereotypes

'The bravest thing anyone can do in this modern society of judgement and stereotypes is to simply be themselves.'

'People will hate you, rate you, shake you, break you. But how strong you stand is what makes you.'

 

Dear Society,

Society today is a lot different from what it used to be like. People nowadays are judged, bullied, mocked, slated, and broken. But there is a light in you. You just have to find it, and let it free for the world to see.

It has become a natural way of life to stereotype people based on what they wear, what music they like, what they do in their spare time. People are judged on their actions, their words. Their personality. I used to think that there was a part of us all that no one could destroy. That part being the Spirit. I am not a religious believer, but I believed that the spirit inside of us all is made up of all the good things we have ever done in our lives, the people we have helped and the right decisions we have all made. 

But there is something that breaks so many people, it becomes too hard to handle, that teens take their own lives to free themselves from the pain. 

I am sure you have all heard of Amanda Todd, and her story. She was judged. She was bullied. She did not have the guidance, nor did she have the strength to fight the battle alone. The girls and boys that radically bullied her forced her out of this world. 

I think it is easy enough to say that we can 'keep it real' by being real and true to ourselves but how can we do this when so many teens are bullied on a regular, day to day, basis? So many girls and boys are true to themselves, no matter what, and yet, they are still judged, still bullied. They are made to feel that they are not good enough for this world. That no one wants nor needs them.

But let me tell you this, Movellians, no one is perfect. No one is God's gift. So many girls stare at picture in magazines and think 'I want to look like her' because they all look perfect, tanned and beautiful. But those girls in magazines do not exist. They never did.

Everyone is equal and it is about time we started treating everyone like it. How many more teens have to commit suicide before this message becomes clear?

No one should be made to feel so unwanted and unwelcome. 

We simply cannot 'keep it real' until society is reformed. Until the minds of many are changed, until they see people as equals and accept them for who they are. 

It would be so easy for me to sit here and type that we live in 'happy days'.

How can one follow their dreams, overcome obstacles and find happiness if someone is constantly in the way?

I have friends who have been through similar situations, and I hate it that they are treated so unfairly. 

The only way we can ever keep it real, in a society so sinister, is to let go of the judgemental sides of our personalities. If you want to live a happy life without being judged, bullied or stereotyped, than you have to keep your end of the deal. Don't do it to others. 

There is a light in you. You just have to find it, and let it free for the world to see. Don't let anyone tell you that you are not worth it, because you are.

R.I.P Amanda Todd, along with all the other girls and boys who have been treats so callously. You are in my heart, and you will be remembered.

From, 

Jodie, and everyone else who wants to stand up to bullying.

P.S we ask for change.
