Dorks Unite Against Bullying!

These days I wear the title of “Dork” with honor. Being a dork makes my kids laugh at and with me. Being a dork makes my wife roll her eyes in mock disgust at me. I love that. My daughter thinks I’m actually a good looking “dork”, you know, for an old guy. But being “dorky” back when I was in school, a hundred or so years ago, could get you made fun of… a lot.

I was lucky in a lot of ways. My dad was one of the funniest men I’ve ever known and thank goodness some of that rubbed off on me. I developed a good sense of humor which has gotten me out of more trouble than I even like to think about. There has been more than a few times in my life where my funny bone saved my tail bone.

Yes, I know it’s harder and more intense now-a-days. With social media you just can’t seem to get away from today’s high-tech bullies. But here’s the deal: you can stop them. You can and must stand up for yourself. On social media, you block them. In school you let everyone know what’s going on, teachers, the principle, your parents and your friends. If you don’t have friends that will stand with you against bad treatment, then get new friends. You don’t have to take it.

Keep in mind that bullies, no matter what age, are people with severe mental problems. The only way they can make themselves feel better is to make others feel bad. If enough people point out that these kids are mistreating other kids, something will be done about it. Parents will be notified, and parents need to know if they’re raising a bully.

Don’t let them win. Don’t let them mess up your head, because it can mess it up for life if you’re not careful.

Believe me, it gets better.
