Online Haters and bullies are something that continues to happen and can really get you down. Personally, I was taught if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all but hiding behind a keyboard spouting negative, offensive comments is all to easy. If you have been or continue to be the victim of online abuse here’s something’s you can do to make life easy for yourself.
Confront them by sending them a private message. Tell them that you know what they are doing and that what they are doing is wrong. Do not be afraid to communicate with them!
It’s quite possible that they may shocked that you dare to speak up for yourself, you’ll make yourself appear as an actual person who can be hurt and not a virtual person they think might not even exist. You can’t fight hate with hate so be the bigger person and be nice that’s what that differentiates you. Trolls and bullies think that they can hide behind their keyboards so exposing them removes their anonymity. Let people know who they are. Warn others about them. By exposing them yourself, you can also help others from getting hurt.
Easier said than done but don’t allow yourself to be a victim silenced by fear. Be bold. You don’t have to be afraid if you have nothing to hide. Being a victim of online bullying is not something to be ashamed of. If you turn things around and make it something you are unafraid to be open and honest about, you will emerge as victorious. You win by being open about it.
Tell your friends and family We all need some love and support in the times of crisis. The easiest of all the things you can do is to Report/block them online most social network if not all have this facility If you need to report or block the people who are harassing you, do it. Out of sight out of mind.
If it’s just a single hate comment or a small thing (not regular insults and spam), you should just ignore them. Let the haters do their thing. When you don’t respond to them, they will simply move on to other things and other people.
