No one likes a bully. No one. Not even the bully. It is very easy to get mad and angry and even hate bullies, but hating a bully isn’t going to make you feel better.
One of the things bullies do is they make us self conscious. They try to convince us that people don’t like us because of something we did or didn’t do. This makes us doubt ourselves. Maybe WE aren’t someone people like. This is what makes us self conscious.
Bullies prey on our anxieties and make us worry about our reputation. The secret to beating them? Understanding that – they can’t actually ruin your reputation.
They don’t have to wait for a magic moment or for someone else to save them. There are things they can do to take control of the situation, whatever it is, and make it stop. And yes, they can do this.
