It can be tempting to hang out with the same people, but making friends in many different social groups can help you discover amazing friendships and make you more well-rounded.
Aim to treat everyone with respect and kindness, not only your friends.
You always have options other than bullying someone. If you’re in a clique that makes you feel like the only option is bullying others, step out of that clique. Make friends with a new group of people who don’t pressure you to bully.
Expand your circle of friends by sitting with someone new. Just sit down next to the person and say “Hi, I’m ___.” The rest will fall into place.
