“Bullying”

Bullying, or people being disrespectful towards you or others in general. This is my two cents, based on my perspective, from experiences in my life.

I keep hearing stories from people I know in life, where preteens or teenagers commit suicide because of being bullied. This is incredibly disturbing to me, and upsetting.

This is what I tell my kids:

  • School is a small part of your life. You only have X amount of years in school, and after you graduate, you will probably never see these people ever again in life.
  • What these kids say doesn’t matter or define who you are.
  • Ignore them.
  • They have low self esteem, or a bad home life, pray for them.
  • If they are violent, tell the Principal first, then tell your parents.
  • The kids that bullied me in school, some are drug addicts, and have had their kids taken away. They have serious issues.
  • Ignore it, report it and don’t be dragged down to their level. There is a lot more for your life, than worrying about what other people think.
  • They could be jealous, or threatened by something you’re good at that they aren’t and so on.

I am a quiet, passive person, and too nice. I still get “bullied” at work. Maybe because I lack assertiveness, and I need to practice assertiveness, but first learn this trait. This is defiantly something I need to work on. My Mom get’s this too at work, probably because of her personality. I guess we’re too soft.

I personally think that people that “bully” or that are incredibly disrespectful, in adult life, and all “bullies” in general, need to pick on someone to make themselves look bigger. They have low self esteem, and lack confidence, and they are trying to feel better about themselves, their accomplishments, self worth and so on.

Or it could be a misunderstand but they should react disrespectfully. They act this way because they feel offended due to low self worth.

This is sad rise about it, and feel sorry for them because this is a sad lifestyle.

Last week someone was acting rude to me at work, I thought about it, this poor person has low self esteem and so on. I feel sorry for them. Their perspective is off, they need help, or they need to learn and grow.

This is just my honest opinion.

  1. Great advice and timely as my daughter told me about an incident where her eight year old was punched in the stomach twice by the same child and no one told her about it. I just received the call today. She found out from the child. Of course it was dealt with by both parents together. I like your points very much. Unbeknownst to the principal this is a child who was a slave in Haiti that was rescued. Your points are excellent. Well said and written. Thank you. Love ❤️ Joni

  2. You’re so right. Let me tell you that work is a small part of your life. You only have X amount of years until you retire, and after that, you will probably never see these people ever again. Meanwhile ignore them. They have problems, indeed.

  3. This post is so in point, Michelle. I was bullied by most of my classmates during my last five years of high school. It got so bad that I attempted suicide at the age of 14 and almost died. By grace, I pulled through.

    Now, thirty years later, most of them are just as nasty as they were back then if not worse.

    I’m blessed to have surveyed it. I eventually had a family of my own and found my tribe of true friends. Best of all, I found my confidence, peace of mind and happiness.

    I can tell you that they aren’t happy people. Most of them have been through terrible divorces, are addicted to drugs- they’re battling demons I can’t even imagine.

    Bullies bully because they live miserable existences and the only way they can feel better about themselves is to make someone else feel bad.

    Like you, I can’t hate them otmr be angry at them. The only thing I can do is to pity them. I can only hope they get the professional help they need before it’s too late.

    Again, thank you so much for this post.
