WITHDRAW SUPPORT – Weekly Stand #31

Don’t know how to help with a bullying situation you are witnessing? You can start by not laughing or joining in. People who bully often get power from
the approval of others. Try at least one time this week to withdraw your support from a bullying situation by walking away or, when it feels comfortable, saying, “This isn’t cool,” or “That’s not funny.” Your reaction can influence others to step away too. Make sure later to figure out a way to give support to the person who was bullied. It may seem hard, but each time you do it, it’ll get easier.
