Those experiencing bullying often feel isolated and alone. Meanwhile, many bystanders (and bullies) don’t often realize the full toll of bullying. By sharing your stories of experiences with bullying behavior, you can provide hope and encouragement for victims of bullying, while dispelling the myth that bullying is a normal part of growing up. Better understanding the pain that bullying causes can move bystanders to become “upstanders” who know that this behavior is never acceptable.
Select stories will be shared on the Payton’s Project website and social media; names will not be used without explicit, written permission from contributors. Thank you for sharing your story and being a beacon of hope for others!
