10 Anti Bullying Songs That Encourages Self Confidence

1. “Haters” by Hilary Duff

“With everyone
Who’s come and gone
My head is clear
My voice is strong
Now I’m right here to right the wrong”

2. “Don’t You Just Hate Those People?” by Jennette McCurdy

When your heart is broken, you feel like the only one.
There’s a million others, holding hands. Where do they all come from?
Every coffee table, Every movie, every car
They want the whole wide world to know
How in love they are!

3. “Mean Girls” by Rachel Crow


Do you ever go to lunch with no one by your side
Cause the moment you arrive they all leave the table
Calling me everything but my name
Need I remind you again just call me Rachel
How would you feel if you running home crying
Lock yourself in your room, don’t want anyone to see ya
While everyone’s having fun outside, and you’re telling yourself”

4. “Outcast” by Kerrie Roberts]

“Since I can remember, guess I been a problem
Never had a filter, never been the popular one
To sugar coat what I know is undeniable
I just can’t hide it, I wear it like a letter”

5. “Jealous” by Nick Jonas

“I turn my chin music up
And I’m puffing my chest
I’m getting red in the face
You can call me obsessed
It’s not your fault that they hover
I mean no disrespect
It’s my right to be hellish
I still get jealous”

6. “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift

“But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music in my mind
Saying it’s gonna be alright”

7. Beyoncé – Irreplaceable

And keep talking that mess, that’s fine
But could you walk and talk at the same time?
And it’s my mine name that is on that tag
So remove your bags let me call you a cab

8. “It Gets Better” by Todrick Hall

“Hey You
Trying so hard not to cry well
I know you fed up but keep your head up
‘Cause people only see what they wanna’
People gone believe what they gonna”

9. “Christina Aguilera” – Beautiful

“I am beautiful no matter what they say.
Words can’t bring me down.
I am beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words can’t bring me down… Oh no.
So don’t you bring me down today.”

10. Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

“Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie”

New Blogs: Reality Check With Brian and Others!

New Blogs: Reality Check With Brian and Others! – Since April, we have had two new bloggers. Kelly started contributing to our weekly blog since April and Brian has been contributing to the forum since the start of May.

Kelly has been sharing with us what life is like in college and how she deals with anxiety, depression and OCD and Brian, our newest blogger will be keeping us up-to-date with current events in his blog: Reality Check: https://turningpointct.org/lets-talk/forum/blog-reality-check/. When he’s not blogging about mental health, Brian spends his free time thinking too much, getting distracted and deliberating about how he “should” spend his free time. When he’s actually doing something, he enjoys learning, volunteering, the arts, spending time in Nature and “being productive”. A self-described social justice junkie, Brian first had his consciousness raised to the issue of mental illness in 2011 after seeing the musical Next to Normal. Behavioral healthcare program coordinator by day, Brian enjoys evenings and weekends living with his partner, their two kitties and a few plants in lovely East Hampton, CT. Last week Brian shared his first piece, which touches on the issue of addiction and its root causes: Finding a Fix.

Also, on a monthly basis, professional blogger, Amy will also be contributing to the forum; she has had a very fascinating past and she hopes to grab our attention as she reveals some of the very traumatic experiences that has had. In her own words, “I’ve had to befriend my past, embrace my experience, and express what had happened to me.”

Amy’s Blog is called The Detourist and you can read her story HERE; https://turningpointct.org/lets-talk/forum/blog-the-detourist/.

The New Schedule for each blog is as follows:
Mondays: Daily Life of a College Student – Kelly
Tuesdays: everything-music – Kevin
Thursdays: Journal Black Gay immigrant – kevin
Fridays: Reality Check – Brian
Monthly: The Detourist- Amy

Look out for all the new posts in the weeks ahead and feel free to share your concerns and gratitude in the Discussion Forum.
