Your wellbeing is important. Bullying affects your social wellbeing, making you withdraw from your friends, your mental wellbeing, making you upset, your physical wellbeing, not wanting to outside or be near people, and your spiritual wellbeing, when your values and belief in yourself becomes diminished. Dealing with bullying makes you happier and more comfortable all around, reversing all of the problems caused by bullying.
