By today’s definition, I tend to believe that everyone on the planet has been bullied at some point in their life.
It happened to me when it was a little trickle.
In today’s world, some think that if someone else disagrees with you it is harassment, or if they are trying to get you to actually do your job.
Both children and adults can be quite mean and indifferent at times. That is only part of life.
Like it or not, we are all human beings and being such we are part of the animal kingdom, and all animals have a hierarchical order, it has always been like that and it will always be like that.
Nothing is going to change that. There are times when, as a final act, after trying all forms of diplomacy, physical acts are necessary. Bullies are cowards. Most of the time, if you confront them, they will back off and go mess with someone else.
If you’re being bullied with just words, it’s no big deal.
It’s just a matter of having enough self-esteem and self-confidence to know that what they’re saying isn’t true. When you have that confidence in yourself, the words will bounce off you like water on a duck’s back and mean nothing.
Maybe the reason someone is picking on you is so that you finally “get it” and realize that you are not what they say you are, and you are above that kind of thing and you finally start to stand up for yourself.
Many times the person who is being “bullied” likes the drama and the popularity that comes with it, being a victim has become very popular these days, it can draw a lot of attention to someone and also blame someone for your faults. otherwise, it is your fault.
In this day and age, anyone can be successful if they have the desire and the ability, it is not based on race, gender, creed or national origin, thinking differently is simply blaming someone else for your actions.
Once you develop some self-confidence and rise above that, the bullying will stop.
In life’s journey, people can and will help you, but in the end, it is your responsibility to solve your own problems, no one can do that for you.
As long as you believe you are a victim, life will treat you as a victim.
You are in control of your life, it is your decision to take it as you wish and not succumb to the negative forces that surround you.
It’s about you, not about them.
There are billions of people in this world, you don’t need them in your life. Learn the lessons they are teaching you and move on.
