Let’s talk Bullies #itstartswithus Cody Bennier
Hope you’re all having a wonderful Tuesday, here I was thinking it was Monday??
Tonight we get to hear what Cody Bennier has to say about Bullies, so let’s get to know Cody Bennier (and you will see Teddy one of the cutest 10 week young puppy on planet earth)
Here goes….Getting to know a little about Cody
Full name is: Cody James Bennier and 20, yes girls and very single.
Cody has a seventeen year old sister ( who coincidentally named the cute puppy Teddy)
Now while I know his hobbies include music and bikes, one thing he hates are bullies
I asked Cody if he would share with everyone about being picked on and this is what he had to say:
I was pick on since primary school then right in to high school I was pick on cos I have a disability and my weight
I have suffered from depression and anxiety from being bullied, friends doctors and family can help
If you’re being bullied at any age, tell someone, tell anyone that you trust
Bullying will never stop, that’s the unfortunate thing
There is this so called “trend” of trolling against each other (basically a dissing battle)
I asked Cody what his take was on trolling not just in general but also trolling battles:
People think they’re cool doing that, I hate that
I have to agree with Cody, I think it’s a waste of energy you could put towards doing something positive
I want to thank Cody Bennier (and Teddy) for being part of #itstartswithus
So many of us (whatever age) battle with how we look at ourselves and when you’re growing into an adult you have so many insecurities already, the last thing we need is to have someone else attacking us, we have to ask ourselves why the person says or does things (the psychology behind the bully)
I speak with Jose Ruiz (AKA Baby) on this subject of the psychology behind the bully
