It's about empathy and respect for others.
Let me ask, based on my opinions of this do I also seem like the type who would "instigate a lot of the problems"? I was the opposite of a bully in
school, I got beaten up and jumped daily from 6th - 7th grade. I never understood why I was getting picked on until abit later. I used to raise my
hand to read and answer questions. I think alot of those kids took it as me showing off when it was actually not that at all, people who don't read
well and don't understand what they read well struggle reading aloud and getting they're balls busted by the teacher makes an uncomfortable
environment for everyone, so I volunteered often. Anyhow I got beat up quite abit before I got fed up and started fighting back, once I started
fighting back though it got ALOT easier for me, I promise ya that. It made me stronger, it made me accept who I was and not only that but embrace my
Now, in that line of thinking, to me it seems like you people who overly-sympathize with these kids are really the ones who "instigate alot of the
problems". These kids nowadays are weak willed and your empathy towards they're every little plight fuels that drive to continually play the victim.
Life is hard, they should be taught that from the moment they can understand it. For 20 years now these kids have been so coddled that now we have a
generation of legal adults cutting themselves because they didn't get the 1st job they ever applied for.. but wait!
They're not cutting themselves deep or because they suffer from some serious bi-polar like disorder, they're doing it for the thumbs up's! They're
doing it to get that cyber coddling most of you give them. I'm not going to branch Freudian, you get the point.
