Before you Speak: Think!

Is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind? These are the questions you need to ask yourself before you speak to a friend, a family member, a teacher or to anyone, because you don’t know if that person is having a bad day or if that person is having a good day and you just ruined it. People always taught me about bullying, but I didn’t know that even if you don’t touch anybody, you may be bullying them. Verbal bullying or verbal abuse is when you use words in a negative way, such as insults, teasing or put downs to gain control over someone else’s life. This type of bullying can lead to low self-esteem and even depression, among other things. It can be really hard for someone to detect verbal abuse since even though you may be hurting someone so bad that is thinking about suicide, they don’t have a mark on them, but we can stop that, by ignoring the bully, telling an authority figure, remaining civil, trying to focus on your friends or looking for other sources of enjoyment. Is it difficult? Yes, super difficult, but that doesn’t mean its impossible. If you even talk nicely to people, you will inspire others to do the same thing and together we will stop this, so I invite you to THINK…
