I look at it like this....
The world is a jungle. There is terror at every turn. There is always someone stronger, smarter, and deadlier than you at any given moment. We may
think us humans are more advanced than animals, but we are just as brutal, just as tricky, and just as mean. When something is trying to take what is
yours, no matter what it is, it is at that point where you choose what type of person you are. Does one really just sit back and let someone walk all
over them, or do they stand up and fight for their God given right to protect whats most sacred to them? Nobody will ever agree, but one thing they
should agree on is that it happens to mostly all of us at some point. When you are an adult, its a little easier to deal with the bullying situation,
cause we have all lived through it. Bullies are usually the weaker minded people, and if you stick up to them and not back down, it intimidates them.
They dont normally expect people to call them on their bluff, especially if they are physically stronger than the other guy. Bullies feed off of
fear, and by showing bullies fear, you are essentially fueling their fire. If it has become habitual bullying, and it happens daily, then it is even
harder to stop unless you get authorities to step in and handle it.
If anything, you should be able to rely on your friends to at least carry you home after your daily ass beating, or to be there to have your back when
the situation arrises.
When you stop showing the bully how much harm they are causing you, will be the moment the bully has nothing to gain from you. Dont let bullies run
you or your life. Dont let bullies choose your fate, thats your job.
I used to get bullied as a young kid, but that was short lived the day I stood up to him. Since then, I never let anyone get to me like that again. I
had my fights, I was/is good at kicking ass, but I absolutely hate fighting, because I dont enjoy getting punched in the face. I was a Marine, and am
capable of defending myself, but I find its easier to stop the problem before it happens. If I forsee someone being a problem with me, I go to that
person and I say "Hey Brah- Is there a problem? If not(usually the case), then no big deal. But if they did have a problem, I just provided him and
myself a way out by talking it out rather then stomping it out. Both sides get the respect, and nobody goes home with broken pride.
Unfortunately- you cant outlaw bullying. You would have to outlaw mother nature as a whole if thats your plan.
Fortunately- You can do something about bullying, learn from it, because bullying comes in many different forms, and you will be faced with it many
times as you get older, so it is best to deal with it early so you can get a grips on how to handle it in the future. Bullies dont respect their prey,
so its the preys job to find a way that forces them respect you, and sometimes all it takes is a straight spine and a confident attitude. If you are
content with who you are as a person, they will have no other choice but to be content as well.
