Some of you might have found this website because you know I voiced the character of Edith in Despicable Me. That was fun because I got to play a girl who was kind of different but she was still strong-willed and stood up for what she believed in. She also had a great support system in her two “sisters,” Margo and Agnes. Not everyone is strong-willed, and not everyone has a strong support system. But everyone deserves to be treated well, to be free from drama and bullying.
I started this website with the help of my sister and parents because I wanted a place for teens and pre-teens to go to talk to other kids their age about the drama that they have to deal with on a regular basis at school, at parties, and even at home (while on the internet and cell phones). Teens need to know that they are not alone, and that the behavior that they are dealing with is unacceptable. Most importantly, teens need to know how to stand up for themselves and make sure the bullies and the “mean girls” are not successful. We can do this, and we can empower each other, and we prove that bullies/mean girls are really just insecure cowards who like to pick on others because it’s the only way they know how to feel good about themselves.
You’re not alone. I bet millions of kids have dealt with the same issue and have an answer on how to handle it or they can tell you why they think the way they dealt with it was the wrong way. So ask it anonymously, and you can get anonymous answers from people just like you.
Together, we can fight the mean girls. Together, we can fight the bullies.
GYourB.org stands for “Got Your Back.” I want you to know that someone is out there that “has your back,” who will help you through this tough time. I also want you to make sure that if you have a friend in need, you’ve got their back. Don’t let your friends go through this. Being friends with someone doesn’t mean that you have to turn your back on other people, even if the crowd you hang with is doing that. If you stand up to the bullies and drama queens, eventually others will too because deep-down everyone knows it’s not right. The girl who “says no” to the bully or the “Queen Bee” actually has more respect from the bully, than her followers. A bully finds followers that are willing to do whatever he or she wants. A bully wants a follower that is even more of a coward than he or she is. DO NOT BE THAT COWARD and give the bully power.
Let’s empower each other and end the girl drama and bullying.
Got Your Back!,
