Bullying has always existed, but it’s taken on a whole new meaning in the age of social media. Here are some steps you can take to stop cyberbullying and regain your self-esteem.

  • Understand what bullying is. According to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office on Women’s Health website: “Bullying is defined as any repetitive behavior that is unwelcome or aggressive, including hitting, kicking or shoving; threatening with weapons; following someone around; spreading rumors about someone; making fun of an individual’s appearance or clothing choices.” It also includes aggression carried out by peers rather than adults—for example, teasing others over the phone or through text messages may be considered bullying if they are targeted at school-aged children due to their age level rather than their behavior toward them personally (and thus not technically “bullying”).
  • Recognize signs that something could happen online – especially when they’re not just talking about themselves directly but posting pictures like this one showing off how much weight they’ve lost recently thanks largely because there aren’t any mirrors around where everyone else might see themselves each day without fail!

Own up to the problem.

It’s okay to own up to the problem. That doesn’t mean you need to be defensive or try to make excuses, but it does mean that you shouldn’t hide from it.

If you find yourself being bullied online, don’t ignore the issue—it’s not going away on its own and will only worsen if left unchecked. Instead of ignoring what happened or trying to downplay how bad it was (which only makes matters worse), take a deep breath and say something like “I’ve noticed some negative comments about me online recently.” Then explain why those comments are wrong: They’re saying things about me that aren’t true; they’re attacking my character instead of just disagreeing with my ideas; etcetera…

Change the conversation by coming back with something positive.

The best way to respond to a bully is to change the conversation. You can do this by coming back with something positive or giving them another piece of information they didn’t have before. If you’re feeling defensive or angry, it’s important not to engage with the person who started the negativity—you don’t want your emotions getting in the way of what you need out of life!

  • Don’t respond directly: It’s important not to get into an argument with someone who has been harassing you online because then they’ll just continue their behavior without any consequences (which means there will always be more people following suit). Instead, try changing how often and where possible so as not to draw attention from others who might be watching over their shoulder and taking notes about how well-behaved everyone else has been thus far; this gives other users confidence knowing others aren’t going around making trouble everywhere else too!

Block them.

Block them.

The easiest way to keep the bullies from harassing you is by blocking them on social media, email, Google Drive, and other apps that you use. You can also block them directly through your phone’s settings or email client (if it supports this feature). If they try to contact you via text or instant messenger chat, simply ignore them.

Report them.

  • Report the bullying to the site owner.
  • Report it to your local police department.
  • Report it to a trusted adult (like a parent, teacher, or librarian).
  • Talk with someone who can help you deal with this issue and how you feel about it—a school guidance counselor may be able to help!

Build a support system.

  • Talk to a trusted adult. This can be your parent or another adult you trust, such as an aunt or older sibling who has been through the same thing.
  • Join a support group. There are many online communities that offer support for people dealing with bullying and depression. They will be able to give you advice on how to cope with your situation and help you feel better about yourself again!
  • Find a therapist who specializes in treating youth mental health issues like cyberbullying (and anyone else’s) because they understand how difficult this kind of problem can be for kids who are already having trouble coping with their own lives as well as other issues are thrown onto them by society at large.”

Talk to your parents, or another trusted adult you can turn to in an emergency.

Talk to your parents, or another trusted adult you can turn to in an emergency.

Let them know how you feel and what’s going on. This is important because it helps them understand the situation better, and they may be able to offer advice on how best to cope with the bullying. It should be clear that this isn’t about your personal taste in music or clothes (or anything else), but rather something else entirely: “I’m being bullied online because my friend stole my phone,” for example; “My school has been racist towards me,” or even just “My brother made fun of me today so I’m going home early.”

When talking with parents/other adults, try not to get into too much detail at first—don’t explain why people are meaner than usual; just tell them exactly what happened and let them decide how much information they want before proceeding further into the conversation (i.e., if one parent wants more details than another). You could also ask for help yourself instead of waiting around until someone else does (like calling 911). If none exists locally then consider contacting local organizations like Kids Help Phone or Kidsline which provide 24-hour confidential support lines staffed by trained professionals available 24 hours per day seven days per week throughout Canada including Nunavut where there is no centralized call center located due both distance from major centers such as Winnipeg & Edmonton along with lack thereof any official website dedicated solely towards kids issues only providing general information about their services etc…

It’s not always easy, but standing up for yourself is sometimes the only way

It’s not always easy, but standing up for yourself is sometimes the only way. If someone is bullying you online, ask them to stop saying mean things about you. If they refuse or ignore your request, then it may be time to take action by reporting them to an administrator or another person who can help resolve this issue.

There are lots of ways that people get bullied online: by posting harmful content about someone else (e-mailing pictures and videos), leaving hurtful comments on social media pages and websites . . . and the list goes on! Cyberbullying can lead to depression in teens and young adults who feel alone as they try their best not only to cope with these issues but also to continue living life normally while dealing with these problems at home or school every day

Conclusion

If you’re experiencing cyberbullying, it is important to take action. If a person is harassing you online, blocking them can help deter them from continuing their potentially harmful behavior. Report it to an administrator or social media manager if there are no other options for blocking or reporting the user. You should also consider establishing a support system with friends and family members who might be able to provide additional emotional support during times like these.
