Teens undergoing plastic surgery to avoid bullying!

According to an article entitled, "Teens undergo plastic surgery to avoid bullying", which you can read by clicking on this link:

"Teens and kids even younger are undergoing cosmetic surgery to stop bullying by peers  More minors, especially young women, in the United States and Great Britain are undergoing surgical alteration of unusual -- or what they perceive as unattractive -- facial or body features, to counteract bullying, rather than to emulate their celebrity idols". To read the remainder of this article please click on the link above.

What is going on in the schools and homes  on this planet? If teens are so worried about being bullied this suggests that these same teens have possibly witnessed other teens being bullied because of the way they look, doesn't it? Also this suggests these teens may have read something in the news or on television regarding the fact that someone of their age level was being bullied because of their physical appearance! Certainly I am aware that in the past few years some teens (of both sexes) have committed suicide because they were being bullied at school and after nothing was done about the bullying!  The fact that teens are indicating that they are undergoing plastic surgery to possibly help them not be bullied in schools is a very troubling admission regarding what is going on in the Schools in the United States and Great Britain! I thought that many school districts had developed programs to educate children about bullying so bullying would not become a serious problem in schools. . Apparently these programs are not working if teens are so worried  about being bullied that they are actually having plastic surgery to avoid the possibility of being bullied in the future!

If you live in Canada   are of school age and are being bullied please tell someone you are being bullied:tell a teacher or your mother or father.You can also report a bully if you live in Canada by going to the following website:  click on the folowing link to find out what to do next if you are being bullied at the present  time:

I know what it feels like to be bullied! I am a survivor of bullying! Don't do what I did, I did not tell anyone about  the bullying and because of this I am still suffering today from being bullied!

Thanks for sharing such useful and great information.Plastic surgery is a surgery that is done to change the way a person's body looks or works. Some plastic surgeries can change both. Work can be done on someone's bones, cartilage, muscles, fat, and skin.

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
