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)

Teddy & Cody One for the Cam

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

ALLERT: We have a serious bullying problem 

Hi Everyone, including the family pets

Hope all is going well with everybody, where ever you are today

On this cold Tuesday here in NSW evening, I have decided to yet blog again (insert evil laugh here)

As an older sister/sister, aunt Jo,Jo the crazy lady down the road and to some and just a general human being I needed to blog it out and say: STOP THE BULLIES!!!

Let’s take some time out people.. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH THE WORLD PEOPLE?

Will bullying ever stop?

At what age does it stop?

Will bullying ever stop? No, I don’t see it happening unfortunately

At what age does it stop? I can’t answer that question daily as people even at 34 or 44  55 are still cyber bullying or text bullying… or when you beep your horn and got someone on a bad day.. they come out of their car (road rage to another level) is still being a bully in my eyes when you start punching people over a red light?

And unfortunately it is adults bringing kindergarten to adulthood and men are right up there cyber bullying woman and even in a face to face.. threats however they come is a form of BULLYING!

I am talking BULLIES…. ALL BULLIES and all types of BULLIES

Lets talk Kids and Teens

I am asking myself why are parents of bullies (not all, SOME) who have been made aware by the schools talking to their kids and saying this an ok way to behave?

IT STARTS AT HOME!

It seems like some parents encourage it and seem proud of it…

So many kids are also being cyber bullied which is just horrible, if you have kids who are being bullied and don’t know what to do, or if you are being bullied and feel alone, please don’t ever feel alone… talk to someone (if not the school) parents, if not parents family, please don’t ever feel alone there are many ways you can talk to someone

Here’s my bullying story so maybe some may be able to relate

I changed schools year 11 from VIC to QLD and I was bullied out of my school for standing up for someone who was getting bullied also

Ended up being bullied by large girls from my school, and it’s never just one… it’s always unfair and always outnumbered…

Eight girls against me, the schools did nothing, absolutely nothing!… and I was a little lucky as I was modelling at the time which my mum was very supportive of so I was able to leave school and pursue that, but this cost me finishing my year 11 and 12 at the time

There are many of us out there who have been bullied and to this day are still getting bullied… YES ADULTS DO IT TOO?…

I’ve attached this youtube link below, that’s me talking about ZERO TOLERANCE FOR BULLIES (me talking about it)

https://youtu.be/wyTcg02V6QY

And as someone who has and still gets her fair share still but have been very blessed with the great support of friends and friends who have become like family for the ZERO TOLERANCE against BULLIES OF ALL AGES..

We need to take a good look and see how it can leave a scar and how it can damage even kids as they grow up and into adults, I have spoken to people  (who share their story) who till this day still struggle with it and have some heartbreaking stories… so we can get through it but knowing that there is a support network so no one feels alone, especially kids and teens is something we need to bring awareness too

Being bullied or cyber bullied can lead even kids into depression, and worse, any one who needs to talk there are many great helplines out there
