I Choose Love and Respect

My name is Lexi, and I’ve experienced much bullying.
It all started in elementary school. My “friends” would spread rumors, and we would fight loads. That enabled me to trust people I thought were trustworthy. Now in middle school, I’ve realized the harsh truth of what bullying can have on a child. I’ve seen it plenty. Girls fighting, crying, and losing friends. I ‘ve seen the tears, and I’ve seen the reality. I can never imagine being rude, or disrespectful to another human being.
Thats why I choose love & respect.

    I can remember kids saiyng mean things when I was younger. I was empowered by standing up for myself. I believe adversity builds power. Fortunately, the bullying behavior only hurt my feelings, and luckily I was never physically hurt. I did became a stronger person by handling those situations. Now as an adult, and to be proactive, myself and my family now practice karate. Karate has given us amazing confidence, strength and discipline. I highly recommend karate to the young and old alike! I, of course, have taught my children to never bully but also to always intervene when they see bullying. To me, to watch and say or do nothing, is just as wrong as doing the bullying .When you do stand up to a bully and defend the victim, it makes you feel good. I always say Be the bigger person and defend the underdog’. I appreciate the work you are doing and hope for the best for you, your family, and your organization.

    I like what you said. More people need to learn how to love and respect. Nomatter what is going on in your life you should be kind and loving, not rude and a brat. If you lose everyone you have what happens when you finally need them?
