I was bullied at school. That was until I had a growth spurt and was bigger than the bullies. I’m now 6”5 and was 6” around 15.
You see bullies in all walks of life; at school, at work, just going about your day to day business.
I have no time for bullies and as I’ve got older will not put up with bullying behaviour. If I see it I will try to intervene
A few things about bullies I have noticed.
One, they will only bully people they perceive to be weaker than them. This is a particularly cowardly trait.
Two, if you challenge them on their behaviour they can’t see that they are bullying. If you go further and ask how they would feel if someone treated them this way they seem confused.
Three, bullying can cause mental health illness in the recipient. This is particularly the case when children bully each other. I have also seen this happen in the work environment.
I’m not sure where I am going with this post as I seem to be stating the obvious above but I guess my point is we all need to say no to bullying as the image states.
