Does bullying create bullies or enhance a tendency which is already prevalent?
With any quality we have the potential to become it, if the surroundings are conducive to drawing out that trait or behaviour.
If someone is subjected to hate or bullying and they are trapped by it they either learn helplessness and give up. Or, if they can sustain themselves, hate and bullying will bring out either fear or anger. If you cant protect yourself or stop the unprovoked hate and bullying, to hurt back could result you in becoming who torments/hates/bullies.
It is the same when a stranger comes up to you at a party and all you feel, is safety and peace in their company. You feel so safe, protected and nurtured, that you wish you could be like them. So, we try to create that trait they have.
The key is becoming mindful when you reach that point where you decide to become the hater or the peacemaker. You have the choice to choose your fate whether you too become another hater or bully. Or, whether you choose to become a peacemaker. It is up to you.
