People who bully others are people who feel insecure and try to feel better by making others feel hurt. Our culture is full of the message that we can feel better by noticing that others have less, less acceptance, less physical power, less ability, or are just plain different.
Younger people are more injured by bullying whether by a school mate, a relative, or a neighbor because they have not gained adult perspective that we are all unique, lovable, acceptable and worthwhile.
If you experience bullying TALK ABOUT IT! Find support from a trusted friend, a teacher, a parent, even your family pet. Let the fear and hurt out. It doesn't belong to you and you never have to carry it alone. People who bully others use the feeling of shame they cause to get their victim to isolate, lose power, and suffer in silence. Take your power back and share the hurt.
