You have to realize that you are your own's best friend. Don't be too hard on yourself! The ideas you come up, the thoughts that cross your mind, are always something good to reflect upon and work with. You should trust yourself more than anyone else.

Find confidence in yourself, realize you are important and you are worth it, dont allow others to bring you down.

Look them in the eye, and tell them you are proud of who you are, and that nothing they say is going to change that. Confidence scares the bully because that is something they are lacking.

Stand up for youself by tellinf the y to back off. Don't let the bully get to you know that the bully is trying to make you feel bad because he/she is broken down themselves. Otherwise they are just being Jerks. Sincerely Emma

Standing up for yourself can mean a lot of different things. If someone were to pick on you about how you look, how you speak, or how you do anythning else in life, you have to prove to them that you are yourself. And ONLY yourself.

Think about which consequences are worse--standing up for yourself and taking the fallout, or keeping on the way things have been.

Be proud of who you are, and show it to others x Ignore what others say, the only thing that matters is what you think

Now your price - pride will come right after. You have to understand that no one has a right to harass and hurt you without consequences.

Remember to look at that person, smile and walk away, no matter where you are. They will see that you dont care, even if you do

Standing up for yourself can be really challenging if you're used to letting others have their way or you're a people pleaser. When you trim yourself down to suit everyone else, it can all be too easy to whittle yourself away; learning to stand up for yourself is a way of ensuring other people respect you and don't try to push you around or manipulate you. Unlearning the old habits of self-effacement and gaining the confidence to stand up for yourself won't happen overnight, but the journey to improvement starts with the first step: 1.Believing In Yourself. 2.Set goals for yourself 3.Develop a good attitude 4.Stop viewing yourself as a victim 5.Feel good about yourself physically an everything will be fine
