I've dealt with bullies all my life but luckily, I stopped encountering them when I started high school. I know a lot of people who are still being bothered by them though, and most of them are my friends so it really bothers me. How should we deal with them? Most people would say it's best to ignore these bullies, but we've already done that. They just wouldn't stop! I hate how they talk and laugh about people behind their backs, saying mean things about them (and most of which are untrue). They admitted themselves that doing these things is their hobby. They also like to ruin friendships and try to get people to fight with each other. They like bringing out the bad side of people. I experienced this firsthand. They tried to get me to pick a fight with someone and I kinda did, but in the end I apologized. So has anyone experienced something similar? Are you still experiencing it now? How are you dealing or how have you dealt with it?

Me and my friend experienced this in high school. They taunted me and kept disturbing me when we were in lesson listening to the teacher. In the end, I got so pissed off and I launched a high kick at his face although not hitting him. He got scared and decided to move away from me. If I hadn't did that, me and my friend will be targets for those idiots.

Whoa that's really cool. I wish I was a guy so I could do something like that XD but I'm just a small, weak girl ._. (no kidding x_x) and they're big guys. Not muscular, just fat.

Don't be afraid of those bullies. They always love to pick on the weak, especially girls. I hate people like them and can't wait for them to be punished. Some bullies may look hard and cold on the outside but a lot of them are just bull-tempered and not willing to put up a real fight as they are scared of being hurt. In the end, who is the one being taunted? Now you know the answer :)

The best way to deal with bullies is to avoid to mix with them, you just need to stay away from them and ignore them. You can also look for someone who are powerful enough to talk to them. And I believe this will work usually. All the bullies only want some kind of attention and they bully you just because they need your attention, if you entertain them, you will probably make them more excited and will continue to bully you. So just ignore them and stay away from them.

bullies are the people we all hated. if you are really bothered by these bullies. you need to find the ways to ignore them. just don't scare. you can do some to fight back if you are more confident and bravely. but actually the best way is to find the easy way to avoid them. move on!

I think that there are many "bulies" around us, even though they are not real very bad. And we also can't help entering them sometimes, while we are unwilling to be that guy. but i realised one day that you couldn't avoid them, as they always be with us just because we are not perfect. so i deal with them by ignoring and not answering.

Dealing with a bully at school csn be torture for a child. In my experience you have to let the bully see that what they do can't hurt you. Most of the time a bully will just move on when they see they aren't getting the attention they want fom you. Bullies are insecure and should be shown the path they are choosing is not the right one to follow.

I'm still having an encounter with their kinds. I hate bullies. They feel like they're the greatest human being alive and that their rights is superior than others. I do my best to avoid them. Try my best to ignore them. If these does not work, I fight.(not in a physical way)..Giving them a dose of their own medicine.

Hi, I have been bullied all my life, but now I am not bothered about it anymore because I know if I ignore them they will soon feel uninterested to bother me. I hope I am able to say something mean to them but I am not able to. So sad, but it's true. Well, life has to go on and now I just mind my own business. That's the best way for me and so far it works.
