Who was your enemy or the bully when you were growing up? and Why?
Ben in kindergarden, Chase and Jason in middle school, then Jorden at work.
There was a kid, John B. in grade school who was a bully to pretty much everyone. At the age of 20 he was shot dead while sitting in his car. The police speculated it was drug-related. The people in the neighborhood were not surprised. I guess what goes around comes around.
Too many bullies to count! I was picked on, teased, beat up, left out, & all together had a rotten childhood. As for the why ~ you could say I was an easy target.
I prefer to believe it was because it made me a better person in the long run.
I now have compassion, understanding, and empathy to a degree that most others don't. Because I suffered I grew stronger.
So I would like to thank all of those bullies from my past. I'm a better person because of them.
There was this one neighborhood boy when I was about 5 that used to pick on me constantly and one day I stood up for myself and he stabbed me in the hand with a fork out of his lunch box because we were on our way home from school. I never had another bully as bad as that.
Oh my that sounds awful.... he sounds just dreadful...
It was not a good experiences by far, but soon aster that either his family moved or maybe they threw him in juvie because I don't recall ever seeing him again. Yay for me LoL
I remember in school I used to have this girl who always made fun of me. I never did anything to warrant it, but she just chose me.
I used to wear these BONGO brand overalls. So one day she thought it would be humorous to call me 'BONGO'. Annoying for a while...but I had an idea to make her stop.
I asked my friends to nickname me bongo. lol She didn't like that, so she quit calling me that and began calling me 'Blondie' (ironically a cute nickname now), I asked my friends to start calling me that. Boy was that great. She quit picking on me all in all after that from what I remember.
It was one of my best friends. We were raised in the same neighborhood, and we were the same age. He knew my family and I knew his. I often was invited to his house to have breakfast or dinner, and we played marbles, soccer, hide and seek with a bunch of other kids.
At the age of 8 or 9 he began beating me, and this lasted for a few months, until I had to break his mouth!
Encouraged by my mother who knew about this occurrence, me and other kids plus my friend went to the park where we resolved the problem.
After this problem was settled, we became more closely related as friends, and I was welcome at his house as he was welcome at mine. We grew older and joyfully remembered the incident.
Myself. I always let what others said affect my actions and thought processes.
Sharon J and her gang of girl hoodlums picked on me nonstop all through 5th, 6th, and 7th grade. After that we went to different schools thank goodness. She called me out because I came from a poor family and didn't always wear the nicest clothing or the coolest accessories. Many years later I was working as a Charge Nurse on the surgical unit when we had a food tray spill on the floor. I called housekeeping and guess who showed up - Sharon. I could have made her feel small but I acted like I didn't recognize her and let it be. I could tell she recognized me and later that evening she came back to apologize for her tortous mean spiritedness in school. She made me a stronger person but it sure made a lot of undue stress in my younger years.
Fear... seriously. Fear of anything -- darkness, heights, being punished or being lonely is the worst enemy anyone can have. More so because though you can see and estimate the strength or size up any other enemy, fear is an unknown foe. And the worst part is you can do nothing to fight it? or maybe you don't know how to?

Is it true that what goes around comes around?Do you agree or disagree that how you treat someone will eventually come back to you?

Do you believe that "what goes around comes around"?Is there some kind of cosmic justice in which good deeds are ultimately rewarded and likewise, bad deeds ultimately get punished? If you have been wronged by someone, do you feel the need to get revenge?

I am not perfect. I have made mistakes in the past and will continue to make mistakes. The object is to learn from the mistakes. I find it pretty amazing how much can be learned from mistakes when truly analyzed. I also believe Karma is reality. When I have made mistakes, I find it truly amazing...
