When people behave badly – it’s rarely about you and almost always – all about them. The best thing you can do is be compassionate. If you make it all about you – you are not helping yourself or them and you will end up hurting more than you need to and probably make the stressed out poorly behaving person – behave even worse.
Eliminating bullying isn’t just about what not to do – it’s also about having ideals to strive for.
The problem with all this denigrating people by exploiting their social weaknesses, that are institutionalized against them is that it reinforces the institutionalized violence against these people. And that’s not ok.
