What is cyberbullying?
Cyberbulling to me is when peolpe go on the internet and start sending mean and unwanted posts about someone, which leaves the person that's getting cyberbullied shamed, mad and questioning - "why did they do this to me?".
The story I want to share
In my story, I was the:
It happened on...
Here's what happened
I was on Instragram and I saw a picture of my friend. The comments that were made made me feel very uncomfortable and disappointed in the person that posted this picture. I confronted her about the picture and she wasn't sure who posted it, she was very sad and felt like people hated her. I asured her that some people are mean and cruel, but that doesn't mean she should allow those words to bring her down. With that pep talk those hurtful words flowed by her with no meaning.
