It may not be a massive success story, but I had someone who was bothering me online and I just sort of confronted them about it... You could tell they were still really mad about the situation but getting my feelings out there and freeing myself of that negativity (at least on one end) was a nice feeling to have...

Hi.
I got cyberbullied at school after I put up a picture of myself on holiday with a Spanish boy on the beach. I got a few nasty comments at first then I started getting messages on Facebook from people i don't know telling me i was a slut and looked disgusting and wishing i killed myself. It was so horrible and i remember thinking the whole world was laughing at me and hating me. I didn't want to tell my mum because she might have blamed me for putting up the picture in the first place so i just let it bottle up inside me. It went on for ages and i felt so alone and scared. I talked to my best friend about it and together we sat down with my mum and told her. It was the best thing i could have done as she was really supportive and i didn't feel alone anymore. The messages gradually stopped and i think it helped that i didn't reply to them as i was so scared because they just went away and stopped after a while. What i remember most about dealing with this was the feeling of relief after i had spoken about it with people who really cared. People who spread hate and nasty stuff online are really sad so i would say stay strong and listen to the people who care about you not the people who don't. I have not had problems since then and ignore or delete anyone who i think is a hater.
