I was bullied and by observing them and standing up after a while (they were nasty) I find out an intersting truth, bullies are cowards, they choose who to bully so they think this person, this choosen one won't stand up. Wanna get rid of bullies? Stand up for your self! That's why they need a group!!! They are nothing alone, they also probably get humiliated or worse at home, so they want to take their anger in someone too, that's how low they are. Every single time i stand up to a bully, at school or at work, NOT ONE of them continued, they ran. Believe me.

This is so true and very well said. A bully is never alone they always have to have their so "call friends" with them. Thoses "so call friends" are only there with the bully because they don't want to be bullied either. They are nothing but cowards with high insecurity issues. The best advise you gave was to stand up to them and watch how it all goes away fast.

Hi katie! I applaud you! I salute you! You are a brave person. What you have done by standing up for yourself is a good model for many to follow should they be victimised. Great!

Unfortunately, bullies have problems too. That is the reason why they project it to other people to make and feel that they are stronger. These bullies should be reported so that they will have help from the professionals. If you are the one bullied, you should stand on your own and not let them bully you. Because the more you sit down and be quiet, the more they will feel that they need to bully you much more.

You're right katie0, bullies are cowards, they just try to show off and look tough in front of others. We had a recent case here where I live, that a 9 year old kid was sent to intensive care by two 14 year old's. It is very sad, but unfortunately bullies are not only kids, some grow up to adulthood still being bullies and try to bully there peers and sometimes their bosses. All we can do stand up and face all the bullies in life, and only then we can survive.

I was always told to stand up to bullies at school and in life too. Although I knew it was the best option when I was a child, it was not so easy to get the courage to put into place. I have no problems with bullies as an adult these days, although I am aware that bullying still occurs in certain work places as a friend of mine battled with it for a long time. I also battled with a bully when I was an apprentice back in the early nineties. These days I would not take any crap from anyone, but as an insecure youth, it was hard to stand up to these people. I always teach my own kids now to stand up to bullies and my daughter has done that well. She got into trouble from the school for doing it, but it stopped the person who was bullying her at the time. She used to get bullied a lot when she was first starting school and we even changed school because of it, but now she is super confident and popular.

Hello katie, Nice to know you stood up for yourself. I had one bully in my class and he would use bad language and say all kinds of things to others, and pull nasty pranks. We used to play soccer, and he used to play all for himself, kicking and hurting others. I was really annoyed one day. He was kicking my friends and he also kicked me. The funny thing is that he never approached me earlier, but for the way he used to behave with others, i was really annoyed. I punched him on the face and he fell down and started crying on the ground. Man, he was crying like a small baby. All of us were enjoying the scene. We were around 11 or 12 years of age that time. I don't remember any of his stories after that. As a child i was proud of myself, but now i come to think about it. It is really nothing i should have been proud of. I have uncontrollable anger at times, but the nice thing is that i can tolerate very much. There is a limit with i can withstand, and after that i can get ridiculous.

There was one guy who bullied me when I was still young. It was my mother who talked to him and asked him not to fight with me anymore. After that, it also didnt happen anymore.

so true bullies are just big cowards who need the assurance of having people behind him to make him confident and they usually pick on smaller people to pick on

I'm not a bully but I've been with a group of bullies. They're fun to be with, actually. Like other people, they have some emo moments too. That's why they push and shove other people because they need to vent out their emotions to other people who won't stand up for themselves. That's the truth, they just need someone to bully to feel good. I've also pushed over good people cuz of them. They wanted me to be like them and I didn't want to lose the group so I did but I'm confident to say that I'm not one of them. I'm extremely far from their attitude.
