You can’t beat a bully by playing their game. So DON”T PLAY THEIR GAME! Who would you be if you didn’t care whether the bully approved of you? Be that person! Be yourself. Be happy.
Bullies are humans too and have their own problems. Plus, hate doesn’t help us deal with it or make the unwanted behavior stop. And, hate doesn’t feel good. Hate is triple plus bad.
Bullies lie to discredit their victims. What can you do when someone is lying about you.
We need to stop the cynicism about bullying. Cynicism makes us distrust people but worse, it causes us to assume that they won’t change or can’t change. It’s a fatalist view.
