Being short and skinny some larger people picked on me. Bullies often look for people that are smaller than them. They want to know that they have an advantage. A person I never saw before that was really big grabbed me while I was walking by because I was the smallest guy around. It is like when wolves look for a weak animal to attack.
Bullies have stopped trying to bother me as soon as they realized I was not an easy target. While I can't do much about my height I have increased my strength by exercising. I don't like feeling weak. I like to feel strong even though I am short.
Another reason bullies go after short people is because a lot of short people lack confidence. They are intimidated by taller people.
