Prove them wrong!
What would you do if people were telling lies about you? Would you feel hurt or get mad? Would that help people learn the truth about you? After a while, would you think, "Well, if people are still saying this about me, it must be true"? Would you then start acting the way the lies said you act? That definitely wouldn't help people learn the truth!
Wouldn't it make more sense to prove those lies wrong by showing what you're really like by your actions? That's even more convincing than telling people they're wrong about you. It's awfully hard to deny what someone is actually doing.
If you're a teenager, there are lies being told about you and your friends. I'm sure you know what they are. You may have heard some people saying that teenagers today—not singling out anyone in particular but lumping all of them together—have no morals and no sense of responsibility; that teenagers don't think about what they're doing or have respect for life; that they're selfish and self-destructive; that they feel hopeless and don't care about harming other people, even other kids.
