Bullying is never okay because it can have serious and long-lasting negative effects on the victim's mental and physical health, self-esteem, and sense of safety.
If you or someone you know is being bullied, it's important to seek help. You can talk to a trusted adult, such as a teacher, school counselor, parent, or doctor. They can provide support, guidance, and resources to address the situation. It's important to remember that no one deserves to be bullied and there is help available.
