How does being bullied make you feel?

  • Scared to go out or to go to school
  • Upset
  • Lonely
  • Worried so that you can’t concentrate on anything including schoolwork
  • Wanting to play truant to avoid bullies at school
  • It can make you feel that you are no good, that there is something wrong with you.
  • Bullies can make you feel that it’s your fault.
