Bullying at schools, if not stopped, causes long-term damages to the personality of the bullied children. Not only that but it utterly shatters their confidence. The same happened with a cute little boy Musa Ali Zeeshan who has been quite upset for the past few days.
The severity of bullying is often undermined. No, bullying is not just a normal part of growing up, nor does it help children deal with the cruelties of the ‘real world’. Not only do the sufferers develop depression, but they also become socially withdrawn and have low self-esteem.
Kids with blurry vision often refuse to wear their glasses because they do not want to be made fun of. It breaks our hearts to hear that children who wear glasses are treated differently and tend to have lower self-esteem.
A father took it to Twitter to share how his son now hesitates to wear his spectacles anymore due to a similar reason. “This is my son, Musa, from the last few days he is very upset because some of his schoolmates said; you look worst in glasses, he’s hesitant to wear glasses anymore,” he wrote.
“I told him let’s ask the world,” he added, and asked, “Doesn’t he looks great in glasses too?”
Soon, the response that came in from the Twittersphere was not only surprisingly overwhelming but also heartwarming. A great number of people were quick to cheer up the little champ. Raising Musa’s spirits, the tweet filled with adorable messages and an abundance of sweet compliments.
Twittersphere gave Musa a pat on the back!
Musa! I love your glasses!! You remind me of a boy called Harry Potter. Can you image him without his glasses? I sure can’t. ??— Leena (@Leena_Ghani) April 30, 2021
One shared her experience of bouncing back from bullies
Show him these pictures and tell him that I’m wearing glasses since 10 years almost. I’ve been bullied too and still people say bad things. But fun fact that today my bullies are not even closer to me bcz of my self confidence. So feel confident champ.

Hey Musa, the color of the glasses and shape really compliments your face and match your personality. Have you picked out the glasses yourself? If yes what a good job you have done ??— Nighat Dad (@nighatdad) April 30, 2021
‘Glasses make him look like a scientist’
Musa is so handsome, the glasses make him look like a scientist . The kids don’t know what they are talking about. Give him a hug from me— پربھا ਪ੍ਰਬਾ (@deepsealioness) April 30, 2021

Hey Musa, you look ADORABLE mate?love the color?& the frame suits you perfectly?— Aaleen Nehal (@gal_nehal) April 30, 2021
A few others who look good in glasses, but not as handsome as you:
1. Harry Potter
2. Clark Kent (Superman)
3. Tony Stark (Ironman)
4. Steve Jobs: The guy who owned Apple(yes the phones/computers) pic.twitter.com/rFAuGHCGBR
So incredibly wholesome. It is delighting to see people come together to brighten up a glum kid.
Musa’s father thanked everyone for their ‘overwhelming response,’ and shared that he showed some of the comments to her son. “Can’t explain how happy he is,” he updated.
I showed him some of the comments before he left for school today. Can’t explain how happy he is.— مکھن (@MusaAliZeeshan) April 30, 2021
Thank you very much for overwhelming response. ??
Once again: Bullying is not a part of growing up. Kids who are bullied are more likely to experience depression, and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, show changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed.
Tayabah, a 16-year-old girl diagnosed with autism was also not spared from bullying and experienced the same. The girl bullied since primary school, took to her Instagram to share her story and raise her voice against bullying.
Previously, a 15-year-old autistic boy was also bullied by a bunch of teenagers who cyberbullied him, hacked his social media, and leaked some indecent pictures from his account. It is so heartbreaking to see how inhuman and insensitive the world has become.
