When people say mean things about you, it can hurt your confidence and keep you from being proud of who you are. That’s why it’s important to create a shield! Your Pride Shield is a set of words and phrases that you say to yourself to keep your confidence up when others try to hurt you and bring you down. In the speech bubbles below, write down mean comments you’ve heard others say about you or others like you. Then, in your Pride Shield, write down positive things you can say to yourself to keep from letting those comments harm you!
