Within the past seven years, there has been an influx of crime and unrest in the world. Bullying appears to be one of the top five forms of violence and it affects future generations. Did you know that in some cases it starts as bullying, but then turns into domestic violence which is also amongst the top five forms of violence? Bullying must stop before more children are either mentally affected or commit suicide. Bully ME? Oh No!!!...Suicide Is Not An Option by Patrice Lee begins with Patrice using her firsthand account of how bullying can affect a person, as well as a family. Her brother, QII, was a quiet and compassionate young man who kept his feelings inside. Even though he did not commit suicide, the pain that he suffered throughout his life, beginning as a child, began to come to the forefront from being bullied and clinically depressed. “His spirit was so broken now, that he lost the momentum to keep pushing. QII would never regain the quest for life. His spirit was permanently crushed,” says Patrice.
I like how Patrice Lee approached bullying using her personal experience. Patrice starts first with the person themselves. Her goal is to focus on being the best person that you can be, from how to act and display confidence to how to respond. Everything is crucial for one’s well-being. She touches on every aspect of bullying, from cyber bullying to watching who your alleged friends are. In most cases, bullies choose those whom they believe are weak and exude a low self-worth; they do this because in actuality they are weak and exude low self-esteem themselves. After Patrice has built you up in Bully ME? Oh No!!!...Suicide Is Not An Option, then she displays some things that a bully does and what to watch out for. Some of the aspects of bullying can be subtle, just like in a domestic violence case. We must stop bullying sooner rather than later. Find someone that you can trust to tell them about the abuse; do not be ashamed and keep it to yourself.
