Poll: Have you ever been bullied?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

People associate bullying with children in schools, but it can actually stretch beyond childhood to workplaces or neighbourhoods.

This Friday is Pink Shirt Day, which began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new student was harassed for wearing pink. People across the globe are now encouraged to wear pink on this day to take a stand against bullying and promote inclusivity.

Andrea from Green Bay

I’m very ugly
So don’t try to convince me that
I am a very beautiful person,
Because at the end of the day
I hate myself in every single way.
And I am not going to lie to myself by
saying there is beauty inside of me that matters.
So rest assured I will remind myself that
I am a worthless, terrible person.
And nothing you say will make me believe
I still deserve love.
Because no matter what, I am not good enough to be loved
And I am in no position to believe that
beauty does exist within me
Whenever I look in the mirror
I always think
Am I as ugly as people say?
