#BEYOUPROJECT - STAMP OUT BULLYING

"Beauty is about living your life and being happy with yourself inside and out and not worrying about what people think of you"
So, bullying isn't usually a topic I speak about on my blog, or in real life in fact. However, I recently stumbled upon Treaclemoon, whose ambition is is to spread awareness to stamp out bullying and also increase self-belief. After researching and asking for more information it soon became apparent to me that actually, this was something I couldn't not feature here on my blog. It was the quote "true beauty comes from the heart" that particularly sparked my interest. However much I love the idea of makeup and fashion, a persons truest beauty will always come from the inside, their personality. Which is why both myself and Treaclemoon believe it is absolutely vital that each person is confident enough to be them self no matter what.
Being a teenage girl in today's generation I know as well as the next young person how difficult it is to confidently express your true self, especially with the pressure from social media. There is always going to be that fear of being judged or even worse, bullied. In reality though, the only people who are going to judge you are those who are too scared to express their own true selves. Although it can be scary at first to be your true self; you're unique and you have every right express that. I can't stress enough how important it is for you to be yourself. All of us are special in our own little way and that is exactly what makes us us.
Treaclemoon are also an official charity sponsor of BulliesOut. They help to provide information to young people while also helping them to recognise their self-worth and potential to ensure them of a positive future. If they sound like they'd be any help at all to you, don't hesitate to get in-touch and seek advise. Just as Treaclemoon believe, having the confidence to #beyou is so very important.
If you want to get involved and help change the lives of other young people you can: post on Treaclemoon's Facebook or Twitter page the most inspiring quite you know/can make up (be sure to use the hashtag #BEYOU). Or, post on their Facebook or Instagram an image that you feel celebrates yourself (again, be sure to use you hashtag). Or you could check out the #BEYOU shop, where all profit goes to BulliesOut.
