Bullying Rant

Updated on May 17, 2015

I found this note I wrote about bullying on my old iCloud account...

I believe bullying of any sort is intolerable and should always be confronted or reported regardless of any factors, some people are bullies who have never realised how it makes others feel.

If a person never learned to empathise, do they know why it was wrong rather than it was wrong?
Bullying is bad. Online bullying itself can be worse, one could quite firmly say it has cost lives. You get some hard nuts who can just brush it off but for people with insecurities, especially with the ease of anonymity, who can really take it personal can be and often is detrimental to their mental health.

Find a brilliant article inspired loosely by this here: http://andrewhil93.hubpages.com/hub/Homophobic-Racist-Bigots

Some of these people can put on a brave face, a mask, and you never know it's happening from the outside looking in. All is fine.
This makes it difficult to pinpoint victims which is why it can go on undetected so we talk generally and never nearly as personal as these secret bullies. Thus, victims often form a personal (albeit severely negative) relationship with bullies and never a relationship with someone they can really talk to in confidence as most bullies pick on many people so it won't take long for others to speak out.
And then what happens to the bullies? They are reprimanded. Never taught why it was wrong, how it made their victims feel. However, in no way do I condone or support bullying or even the notion of bullying but sometimes, they just haven't been given the opportunity to empathise for their victims.
Bullying is a caused by negative mental element, surely punishment isn't enough? They need help to understand how it feels, peacefully. If you do it wrong, the said bully will just become resentful and not allow anything in, often there is a reason why bullies bully their victims and it's nothing personal, like they're their punch backs and it's unfortunate when others join in to follow the crowd. And when people follow the crowd and everyone is picking on one person...


That's a conversation I had in my head on 14/06/2014

      I can feel the emotion in this hub. I agree that bullies are just putting on a mask, and you really put it into perspective.
