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.
