I thought I would write this in a letter for you so
you can read it when you choose, also then you can remember what I think. I’m really sorry to hear that you have been bullied, you’re my friend and it makes me sad that people aren’t treating you well. You asked me what I think you should do about it and so I’ve had a think and this is what I would advise you to do.

You are a wonderful person, you are kind and generous and friendly and you need to always remember that!
