Getting out of bed and going to school everyday is a part of your life & everyday you go to school you take a step towards your future. And if today you stay in bed and not go to school then tomorrow will be the same and it goes on, you can't always not go. At some point you have to go so why stop going. The only way you are going to stop getting ridiculed is by taking step against it not by not going to school or by not facing it.

With positive thoughts. I think we must have a positive life, and hope. You don't have to be negative, it makes everything worse. So please, tomorrow woke up with a great smile, because ''if they see you sad, they treat you bad, but if they see you happy and not worried, they will treat you better and have respect on you, and on your actions or feelings''. It's better to be with a happy person than a worried and egocentric person. Think about it!

People will always try to knock you down and others will always kick you when you're down. The best way to avoid this? Don't let yourself get knocked down! Get out of that bed and hold your head up high!

If by ridiculed you mean that people are actually bullying you all day, and not that you just suspect that people might be making fun of you, I'm actually not sure that you should. Staying in bed and going on strike from your life, as it were, might be the only way to get people to take what's happening to you seriously. Obviously I don't mean you should stay there indefinitely, though, and I wouldn't do it unless you've already tried all the less drastic methods you can think of.

nothing will change if YOU don't change. Everything will change if YOU change, It's as simple as that.Reality is what you want it to be. Make yourself interesting to yourself, love yourself and the other will follow you. I promise.

Try to focus on the positive, change can happen if you make it happen. Try to focus on what makes you happy and not on the negatives. Please know that there is always someone willingto support you.

Convincing myself that I derive my self esteem from doing what I believe in, not from others validating me. I repeat that to myself and I make peace with who I am and make plans to improve to better myself on my own terms. I remind myself that those who care don't matter and those who matter don't care. I don't need everyone's stamp of approval. I am just gonne be myself and be strong enough to brush those comments away.

I experienced that while growing up. I would reward myself in various ways when I accomplished something such as getting out of bed.

Being ridiculed is a terrible experience. The one bright spot you can see is that school and education are so valuable. School is what will prepare you to be the best adult you can be. If you can find the strength to continue going to school, someday in your future you will be rewarded.

Know who you are and what you believe in. Know that the ridicule that you are receiving is most likely coming from those who are trying to put their insecurities on you. Think about how much better your life will be because you never gave up. Everything that you experience in life helps you either become a better or worse version of yourself. Understand that no one holds the key to your happiness. Be unapologetically you and if you feel that the ridicule is too much talk to the teacher or principal about it. And remember that nothing stays the same. Your future self will be able to happily look back on the moment you got back up and broke through those obsticles life put in your path. P.S. Be grateful for all of your experiences, good and bad, because they help shape you into the person that you chose to be. Instead of letting these moments get you down let them raise you up. They will make you a stronger person in the end. ~

The best thing I can say is that you have to keep faith. Whether it's in a divinity or yourself, you have to keep that faith that your life is what you make of it not necessarily what others try to make of it. I know it's hard and it seems endless, but maybe at some point, it could get better. It got better for me. It got better for other people. Maybe you will find a friend which can support you or you want to get out of bed to water your plants or to feed your pet. Anything is acceptable as long as you can muster the courage to get out of bed. Don't see school as something you do for someone else. As flawed as the educational system is, do it for yourself because overall it's an experience you can learn from.

Something I've learned over the years is that sometimes school is great and other days it's not so great. But if theres one thing I learned from all those nights watching movies rather then going to bed is that "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." -Joe from Princess Diaries. While yes this is a non-realistic movie, it's true! Don't let people have the power to make you feel bad about yourself. Nobody can be a better you then you! Nobody knows you better then you! You are you! It can be hard sometimes to remember that but just think, soon you'll be able to move! Hope it gets better!

What you may do is to focus on something else and realize that once school is done you will not have to deal with the people you deal with now. I have experienced this as well and once school was done I was able to feel no regret that I did what I wanted to instead of letting other people take control of my life. I felt proud in myself and was able to live more freely. At first it was hard but eventually what the people had to say just became words to me and had no affect on me no longer because I focused more on my studies. I got through it and I’m absolutely sure you will too.

Understand the reason behind going to school. Your education and dreams are more important than what anyone else says. Shifting your mindset can also help. View each day as a new opportunity to learn something new. We all have talents and skills, use your school day to learn how to maximize that skill. Always believe in your dreams, even when everyone else says its impossible. School will pass. If you focus on what you want to achieve from school, ten years down the path of life, you will feel pleased to know that you achieved your goals and all the other bullies will not matter to you at all.
