Ways that We Can End The Cycle of Bullying

Since I was a child up until High School, I was emotionally and mentally bullied and I know what it is like to be hurt so badly, being put down, always making fun of me because I was different then everyone else and it was the most toughest times of my life. I didn’t have friends, I didn’t have what others had when they were with each other in groups when I felt left out and being an outcast 99.9% of the time. They were moments that I will never forget, no matter if I have moved on or not. It sticks with you, however I have learned to live past it and began doing positive things in life, to move forward and to stop dwelling on the past. I have been taking a lot of new approaches to this matter and I am going to begin my own social group where people come together from all walks of life and make new friends, interact with others and just figure things out, hear other peoples perspectives on social issues.

There is always a solution and some form of ways to end this terrible cycle going on. Bullying is a very serious problem and it does need to be rectified as soon as possible. It is enough of torment, disgusting behavior that needs to be addressed quickly before it escalates even further.

Now here are ways that we can all come forward to end bullying:

– Creating small, intimate, or large social groups amongst you’re community for those who want to make friends and gather together to create a lovely group of individuals who can relate to one another, creating activities, discussing issues, doing fun, interactive, communication, group work.

– In this modern day society the importance of making it a mandatory course/subject that must be taken and taught in schools and institutions, also the workforce on the prevention of bullying, cyber bullying, social media safety, communications course which should teach students/workers what not to do, what not to say to their fellow peers/colleagues.

– Teachers, Parents, Guardians, School Guidance Staff, School Principals, and as well as outside of school grounds must always be involved in securing our schools, Implementing tougher penalties, more 0 Tolerance in Schools and also the workforce of any type of bullying that should not be allowed, suspension and expulsion.

– tell a person you trust about your feelings, what you are going through and never keep it inside you. Always tell someone you can confide into. Do not wait long to tell someone. In fact tell someone right away.

– Advocate and be proactive in this issue, write to your local papers, attend meetings, start a blog, use social media as a powerful tool to send messages, hashtags globally and come up with your own ways to prevent bullying

– Read up on inspirational quotes, save them on your computer, print them out and scatter positive, happy quotes where you can see them easily, and begin the journey to a happy road ahead.

– Always surround yourself with positivity, good people, do happy things for yourself, and stay away from negativity.

We are on the right road and path to make bullying history, and to look forward to a positive, happy and bright tomorrow. So start today, you can make a difference in someone’s life. No matter how old they are. Bullying has no age as it happens to kids, teens, young adults, youth, adults, and the elderly. Lets end this cycle now.

The Beginning of My Own Social Group of Positivity

Hi Everyone,

This has been on my mind for quite a while now, Every 2 weeks in the Toronto Area GTA(Greater Toronto Area), I want to gather a group together to discuss modern day issues, social issues, those who have been bullied, struggling with second guessing things and not being able to trust easily, How no one is perfect and making mistakes in our lives in social issues is proof that you are trying and bettering yourself for the present and for the future.

The purpose of this group is to strive for courage, positivity, growth and optimism about life, building confidence in speaking out, getting together to make new friends, meeting people from different paths in life and getting to know each other, accepting each other for who each person is, to share ideas and more.

I am not perfect as I have made mistakes too, however those mistakes should not define who a person is, because in the end we’re human. Life is too short to dwell on past mistakes. Especially in social settings. You live and learn. Thoughts on Moving forward, learning lessons in life, reading encouraging, inspirational quotes, and discussing about the deeper meaning to them. being positive and moving on with life is very important as were heading to that direction. Not backwards.

In the coming weeks, I will be working on setting up a place to gather around, which day to gather and so on and so forth. So if you are in the Toronto, Canada area and vicinity and would like to join in, would love to have you and to meet you. This is very important to me, I am passionate about making a better tomorrow for everyone, and gathering people together is what it is all about. I am anticipating, looking forward to a great turn out of people, and to make a difference.


Check back soon on the dates, times and the location of the gathering.

Hopefully I will get to meet some of my readers as well.

What are your thoughts? Do you think its a great idea to meet every 2 weeks? Or should this be a weekly event?

How Dependent The Internet Has Become In Our Lives

Since 1997 when I joined the world of the internet, all I had was dial up for about a year and a half to 2 years until cable internet was introduced. I have learned so much since then on how to operate a computer and getting on the internet, doing searches on my favourite stuff, and e-mailing my family from all over the place and just having a great time. I have realized how dependent the internet has become in my life. It is a lifeline to communicate with friends, family, sharing pictures and videos together and among so many things. I love the internet, but I don’t let it control my life. Living life outdoors and socially is far better, but when communicating with friends and family from out of town, it is one beautiful tool with searching anything and everything you want. It is all on how you use it and utilize your time of course in a safe way. It has been a vital part of my life, but not to the extremes and excessively.

This is a true story that has happened to me a few times in the last few years. I must admit that when my internet goes down at home and when I cannot connect to my wireless or anything, I feel like I am cut out from the world and left out, it is one of the worst things I see on my computer internet icon with the bars. I do anything and everything to get the internet back, and I even go to extreme measures and call up the internet provider and He/she tells me to press the reset button and its back to normal again. I was so relieved. That is one thing I fear not being able to connect to friends and family online. I end up twiddling my thumbs and fingers, and then I end up forcing the internet to come back on and it does within the few minutes. I realized how important the internet is and I just go crazy when its not working. Using it wisely and smart is very important too. Don’t put all your time into the internet. It can be a health problem and so much more. Limiting yourself and setting up time limits is the way to go. A few years back I would not get off of it, and I would be yelled at for doing so, but nowadays for the past 3-4 years I made some drastic changes and it was actually a big accomplishment and I am so happy about that. It has changed my life big time. I get all my news instantly, specials and deals come to my e-mail, everything incredible.

Have you been dependent on the internet? Has it changed your life in a way?  Would love to hear from you.
