What to do About Bullying

#1 – Ask for Help

Speak with an authority figure such as a teacher or guidance counselor at school or a supervisor at work.

#2 – Don’t Retaliate

Do NOT seek revenge. Choose to forgive them and seek to resolve conflict and not avoid it.

#3 – Seek Advice

It might be wise to sit down with a professional Christian counselor and/or trusted adult to talk through the effects of bullying.

#4 – Pray

Ask God to help you and give you confidence in Him and “pray for those who persecute you” (Matt. 5:44). Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” God is always with you. You can turn to Him and trust Him with everything in your life.
