This is a story of a social media whore (so they say), who loves taking pics with his phone or camera, who cherishes every moment spent with his love ones, who has the guts to cuss someone up and down and who is considered an assertive friend.

 

Stop Bullying

Today, Jakarta was shocked by a bullying case on Twitter, a high-school freshman was bullied by his seniors.

The boy was kidnapped, abused physically. Scars and burnt marks were found on his body, which were caused by the seniors.

This happened in one of South Jakarta’s prestigious private schools… As part of the hazing…or an initiation, which by parents, it was probably considered normal. But I don’t think the parents would expect to find their kids abused by the seniors physically.

I am against bullying. I, too, was a victim of bullying back in elementary and middle school…because those kids thought I was different. I was verbally bullied, some almost physically… And back then, not knowing what to do, I was so afraid and trying to fit in so much that I tried to be someone else…

I still remember those faces who bullied me verbally… The sight of them still makes me ill…it was traumatizing!

I still remember how I hated being different…

I still hold grudges against those people who bullied me…

The pain is still there….

So, stop bullying! Don’t repeat the cycle…
