Kicking off today’s #GoodtypeTuesday is @thattypeguy with “Stand Up.” •
This week’s prompt is taking a stand against bullying. Youth is a time for curiosity, self exploration, learning and growth. We can’t ignore what’s happening in schools across the world. Unfortunately, bullying has become an epidemic in our modern culture, affecting millions of our youth today—robbing them of the deserved magical, creative and carefree experiences of life, love and friendship.
We want you to know that you are not alone. Letter a message of love either to the bullies or a message of love and support to the victims. Know of an anti bullying group or organization? Tell us about them or start one—start one at your school.
Must be new work and must be your work. Tag it @goodtype and hashtag it #GoodtypeTuesday and #LetteringForGood.

Bullying was once a part of my life, not on the giving end but the receiving, something I know many people have had to deal with before in one way or another. It took a lot for me to eat past it, but through the support of family and those closest to me with what they taught me, I was able to stand up for myself and make sure I would never be a victim again. From my experience I learned one thing. Inner strength can be achieved no matter where you are in your life and the circumstances around you. All you need to do is find a way to grab hold of the strength and stand up for yourself. No one can fight all your battles for you, but they don’t need to anyway because you can and you will. You’ve just got to stand up for what you believe is right and for yourself. The universe does the rest for you.
So my message to anyone who has been bullied before or might even be being bullied right now: stay strong, you have the power no matter what they make you believe. 💕
