Kids with low self esteem – kinda’ sad if you think about it.
I say the same thing – Defend yourself IF you need to…
My grandson was being bullied. He fought back and decided he was going to beat everyone up. I hope he got the message. We keep talking about it.
I have been a victim of bullying throughout my childhood years towards middle of high school. I have suffered so much…but something brought me hope. (Nine Inch Nails) & (Marilyn Manson) and Poetry. If it wasn’t for them or poetry inspiring me making me the person that I am today. I would have not been here. And that is the truth.
I’m so happy that you wrote this…some people should stand up to these bullies.
I’m sorry you were bullied growing up. I was a victim of jealousy as a teenager. My boyfriend was a 2 timer and this gang of girls were defending their friend’s honor. Turns out the girl and I met in the movie theater and she had nothing to do with the gang of girls.
My grandson got some courage and now he wants to be the bully after being bullied. I want to nip that in the butt right away.
I’m sorry to had to go through all that hard time with problems.
Some humans aren’t evolving. My alien race of people will come soon.
sometimes a person must make a stand. That’s what bullies look for.
That’s what my grandson did. He made a stand. Now he’s trying to start fights. SMH
turned to a bit of a bully himself ?
Yes too much courage.
yep, there’s always somebody who is tougher than you are. The strong need to protect the weak, not prey on them. Lessons to learn.
Yea I hope he learns it from me rather than getting hurt.
agreed. He must have alot of anger.
He does. He’s had a rough short life.
hang in there, I had a fury for many years. It is possible to tame.
Thanks for the encouragement.
Never thought that bullies look for people taking a stand…Thank you for the post about bullies. Your blog is concise and helpful and beautiful.
Thanks for reading. I didn’t no that either. I always thought they were just mean. Now I believe it’s low self esteem.
Low self-esteem has been a theme for bullying…but I have a book called “When You Love a Man Who Loves Himself” and this professor/writer said that “bullies” who are *pathological narcissists* *do not* have low self-esteem, that they really do *like* being “players” who use people and bully people. To them, it’s all a game, no matter who they hurt. Insightful book, but disturbing.
That does sound like a disturbing book. If being a bully is a person with a pathological narcissists personality is scary. In my opinion I will continue to prescribe to the theory of low self eateem. I believe they crave the attention any kind will do. Unless it’s a inherited and learner behavior.
Reminded me of a school I went to for two years. It looked like ‘bullying’ was one of the criteria for selection there. 🙂
Nice post. 🙂
Thanks for reading. Sad that people have to feel good about themselves by hurting others.
