Being bullied isolates you, and it is hard to try and deal with the situation on your own. That’s why it’s so important to find people to support you. But often it isn’t that easy to pluck up the courage and become proactive.
There are many who can help you take a stand against bullying. At school, teachers should intervene, and outside of school your parents should be your first port of call. Other adults such as grandparents, aunts, neighbours or a friend’s parents might also be able to help you find a solution. The most important thing is to confide in someone!
You can also ring one of the hotlines.
You can find out about contacting local advice centres at, for example, Caritas, Weißer Ring e.V., and www.schulpsychologie.de. For anonymous and free online support, you could go to www.kids-hotline.de. It runs forums dealing with all kinds of issues, where questions are answered by young advisors, experts and other readers who are interested in your problems. Other sites, such as www.junoma.de and www.kijumail.de, have experts at hand to offer support. Online-consultation time is available at bke-beratung.de.
