Bullying is one of the most heartbreaking issues happening in the world on a daily basis. The reason I have chosen this as my rant of the week is because of the picture of the dancing man with the caption “Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing.” This made me so upset the moment I saw it. How can people be so cruel? How can you get any sort of enjoyment out of upsetting somebody else? It isn’t funny and it definitely doesn’t make you cool in any way.
It is devastating to think that people suffer due to bullying everyday. We’ve all seen it, particularly in school. As a girl who has experienced it herself before, I can tell you that there is nothing quite like the feeling of being picked on or isolated. You shouldn’t be made to feel like that by anybody, whether they’re seventeen or seventy five. Bullying is bullying. Bullying isn’t having a laugh, bullying is getting enjoyment out of someone else’s misery, I don’t see the funny side of that?
I could rant about this issue forever. So to conclude, stand up for yourself, stand up for each other and don’t let anybody ever stop you from dancing! You will always meet people that are trying to drag you down, rise above it because at the end of the day no matter how much they may criticise your appearance, your personality or anything else about you, life is too short to let the opinions of these people have power over the opinions of the people in your life that actually matter. To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Keep dancing people 🙂 x
