Be Very Careful What You Share

If you are a target of bullying, never share anything with anyone- not even your best friend. Because, in a situation like this, you cannot afford to trust anyone. I don’t care how close you and your friends seem to be. It’s still not a smart move because you never know when your bullies will succeed in turning your friends against you, and those friends become willing participants in bullying you.

So, never divulge any info that’s private or personal- anything you wouldn’t want to be known.

Examples of things better kept private are as follows (Some of these are no-brainers):

1. Your sex life, or lack of.

2. A drug addict in your family.

3. Any medical conditions or diseases.

4. Any mental illnesses.

5. Any legal troubles- even as minor as traffic tickets.

6. Family issues- divorce, child custody, births, deaths, etc.

7. Your past (if you’re old enough to have one).

8. Past abuse you may have suffered.

9. Your personal info.

10. Email and passwords to social media accounts.

11. Names of your family members.

12. Never brag about your daughter’s beauty pageant or your son’s perfect grades.

13. Your views about the recent scandal at school or work.

14. Your hobbies and interests.

15. The TV show you watched last night, especially if it’s a slasher show or filled with hot-buttered sex.

16. Never talk about politics! Ever! That’s a no-no subject!

 Bullies are already looking for dirty laundry. So, why air yours? When you’re a target of bullying, the less they know about you and your life, the better.

    • Absolutely, Jack! And if nothing can be used against you, bullies will be forced to invent something about you. So, you’re forcing them to have to lie next.

  1. Explicit clear instructions are so helpful for victims of bullying especially when they’re confused disoriented, Clear do & don’t is a lifebuoy. Thank you Cherie 🙏

  2. Not only be careful about what you share about yourself, minions of bullies will try to goad information about other out of you so they can report it back to the bullies.

  3. Social Media, which I personally love, is where people make this mistake a lot. Some people literally share everything in their life (someone they dislike, all about a break up, etc). Social media is a tool of communication but don’t put your whole life out there. I actually sent you an email through your author site about an idea I have. I would like to see everyone in an effort to post something positive to come up with a Top 20 list of the people (real people they know) they enjoy following and why and say complimentary things about them and see if it can start trending on social media. List the person and tag them. I think it could make a difference.
