"Okay, I will admit that was kinda funny."
"Oh did I do that, ha, I don't even remember."
"No you have it all wrong, this is what happened..."

Walk away.
Don't acknowledge them.
Act like you don't care and laugh along.
Don't give them power.
Rumors Start By...
They mostly start by:
Pictures
Videos
Questions
Statements
or Observation
Many rumors start with claims of a, "friend to friend," talk.
For Example:
" I heard that..."
" Well she/he said..."
" Guess what (name) said..."
What a Bystander Does
The bystander is in a way a bully.
They will listen to a person say something then tell everyone the same thing but make it juicer.
People spread it to fit in.
Sometimes its on accident, you heard something and you tell your friends then it can become a major problem.
Other times people are just to afraid to make sure they have it right so they just go on with it.
The first person to hear, see, or think of a juicy rumor is usually waiting for the right moment to say it; then it will get he/she maximum attention.
What A Bystander Should Do
Walk away with the victim and talk about what you both can do to stop it.
Address the root of the problem by talking it out.
Telling the teacher by saying it or making it anonymous.
Be aware of the pain caused by the bully and of the people who have spread it
Whether the rumor is good or bad the bystander should always make sure what they heard was true.
Even if the victim says they're fine, stop, it still hurts even if you don't see it.
The person who the rumor is about is usually left out of the group for the same reason your let into it.

*Remember this will have a negative or positive impact on the victims life.
How Rumors Work
They spread quickly and can be very unclear to the majority of people who are spreading it.
A rumor is usually spread in places where people are weak and emotional.
Other times, if it is juicy enough, then it will get to the victim later in the coarse because most people will love the reaction of the victim.

Self Harm
Self harm:
-When a person hurts them selves physically to feel relief
-Psychological disturbance

To some people its like a therapy session that numbs emotional pain but only for a short time.
If a person feels that no one can understand them it can lead them to self harm.
Self harm is related to suicide but not intended to be.
