23. Dealing with it

Haaaaaaay Becca here. 

 

So one of the tricky parts of being bullied was dealing with the bullies. I never really had a way to deal with it (hence why I'm on the butterfly project), but that doesn't mean that you can't. 

 

Some ways (that I have been told of) are:

• Ignoring them.

  Although this never really worked with me because the whole school (teachers and littlle kids included) were bent on destroying my life. But it can work for you. If someone, says  something mean to you, you can just walk away. 

• Talking to someone. 

   No matter how hard you think this is, you will always feel better after talking to someone.   That is an unfortunate mistake I made. I never told anyone what was happening to me. But you should. 

• Doing sport. 

Doing sport (especially ones like boxing), are great strategies for venting you anger. I played netball and tennis, and they reall helped me let off some steam (especially when my coaches let me wack the ball over all 13 of the tennis courts we had, over the fence, and into the neighbouring park. 

(Thanks to @Constafani for these two:) 

• I found that writing the number of days I was clean and hadn't injured myself was a really good motivator because if you want to cut you can look at your wrist and be proud of how far you've come.
• I also made some calm/glitter jars to help with my anxiety and as a distraction method. When I got an urge to cut or felt I was about to have a panic attack I would shake the jar and watch the glitter settle. It's surprisingly helpful :)
