Welcome to the school section of iFace. You can read here what other young people with disfigurement think about school - good and bad - and how they deal with difficult situations (check out the forum for loads of great advice on how to beat the bullies). We'd like to hear from you too. Click on the 'add your story' button at the
bottom of the green box on the right and send us an email - you can suggest new forum posts and FAQs too.
Note: Unfortunately, Changing Faces is currently unable to continue to provide its discussion forums. We are looking into alternatives to put in place as quickly as possible.
In the meantime, why not check out discussion forums on Facebook?
Why do people bully others?
People who bully others are generally really sad and lonely people. Hard as it is to believe they feel really bad about themselves in some way and rather than deal with this they decide it would be better to make someone else feel really rubbish about themselves instead. Thing is they nearly always succeed and end up making others life a misery. It is also worth remembering that 'bullies' will always target something that they think you will feel bad about. Keep saying to yourself that they are saying these things to get a reaction from you and above all remember that its not because you are in any way a bad person or deserve the comments or that the comments are true. Bullies on the inside although they will never, never admit it are sad and lonely people who make other people suffer to make themselves feel better.
