By Sari Esses Many things can be lost when someone is faced with fear, but after these fears are overcame many things can be gained. An examples of fear that holds people back is the fear that a bully would find out if the victim told his parents on him and come back to bully him more. This is a very vast problem in society and the world today. Not only is there a physical bullying but also cyber bullying. Kids can be bullied for days, weeks or even years at a time without their parents knowing that they are being hurt both physically and emotionally. This kills kids’ morale and makes a sharp downfall in their confidence, and also hurts them. What they don’t realize is that telling parents what is going on can make a big difference and help them rather than hurt them. Once kids get over this fear and stand up for themselves, their life would get better and they will live a bully free life.
