Hope you're all having a good start to this cold November ❄

Anti Bullying Week kicks off for The Mix next week with our 2 week campaign from 8th - 19th November. We know bullying is a super important topic for many of you so we're keen to create content to cover this.

Saturday 13th November marks World Kindness Day so we thought it would be a good idea to merge the two.

It would be really lovely to share some messages of kindness for those who are currently experiencing bullying. Drop your messages down below 🌈

Bullying is a really hard thing to go through, so just hearing words of kindness and hope can go a long way. You guys are always giving such amazing support to each other so we thought you'd be perfect for this!

We will be sharing these comments anonymously on our social media so please do let us know if you'd rather we don't share your comment there :)

    Bullying can be very debilitating and so distressing. It’s important to know that even though it can feel like you’re the loneliest person in the world, you’re not. It might not always be a comforting thing to hear, but sometimes it’s all we need to help us draw strength from in the hardest of times . The way someone else treats you is not in anyway a reflection on you, it’s a reflection on them. Be gentle with yourself, you are doing amazingly! You can get through this, look at how far you’ve already come! You are so much stronger than you give yourself credit, and although it doesn’t feel like this right now, it isn’t always going to be like this. Take pride in the amazing qualities and strengths you possess because they are worth their weight in gold. Be kind and gentle with yourself and never feel ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help, you and your mental health are more important than anything else <3

    This is a lovely thread and think this would be great to share messages of hope to anyone being bullied <3

    Here's my message:
    What's happening is not your fault, no one deserves to be bullied. Remember that you're not alone in what you're going through, there's lots of supportive and kind people who can help you through this. <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    A really kind thread, bullying can be such a distressing experience for so many people, so it's really lovely to read these positive and warming messages <3

    My message:
    You are not to blame, you are not responsible for anyone other than yourself. You do not deserve to be treated this way. You deserve love and warmth, and there are people who can, and will provide you with that and support you through this <3

    I think every response in this thread has been so lovely and kind-hearted I just want to reiterate them. You are not to blame for how you're getting bullied and you don't deserve to be treated this way. Whoever might be reading this right now in the future I truly hope things get better for you as soon as possible. <3

    This thread is great. I think these messages will be a great way to help support those who are being bullied. I honestly think its such a tough experience to go through. I hope my message is helpful.

    My message:
    Please remember that you are loved, you are valid and that you deserve better. It's not your fault that you are being bullied, and the way they treat you is a reflection of themselves; so please remember that their behaviors are not your responsibility. Please reach out for help when the times get tough. I wish you all the best and hope that things will get better soon. The scars from bullying can hurt greatly, so please be kind to yourself with the healing process. You are worthy.

    Beautiful thread idea :heart: My message:

    "You are so, so loved. Nobody ever deserves to be bullied - you have done absolutely nothing wrong. You deserve to feel loved, safe and supported, always. And I really believe that, no matter how tough times may feel, things can and do get better. At The Mix, there is always somebody right here to listen and support you. I'm proud of you :heart:"

    Bullying does not indicate a 'deficit' within you. I have been here too. Sometimes people can just be cruel. Usually, it indicates they are also experiencing a difficult time. However, you are better than that because you realise that bringing others down is not the way to make yourself feel better. Keep holding on and soon it will get better. Just make sure you are looking after yourself and reach out to others, we understand this is a difficult time and we are here for you. You don't deserve what you are experiencing <3

    Bullies r cowards, they haven't got something tht u've got. I fought back on fb telling the ppl who raped me how I felt and then the police got involved. The I started talking to their partner about wat they had done. First dm was I was so frustrated tht I threatened to burn their house down while their were asleep.
    a dramatherapist I had brought up demons and I realise now she a narcissist, I still see the person tht arranged the therapist in the first place, now I'm having continuous therapy 😫
