Ok, I just want to highlight a few things that bother me about bullying, the reporting of it, and then the victims ego consequently afterwards. I want to point out also before carrying on, im not saying don’t report it, or help anyone, that’s the opposite of what I believe. If you’re being bullied, then tell someone, it doesn’t matter who, and once you do, it gets a hell of a lot easier to deal with, and if the person you tell is kind enough, the bullying will stop (kinda dependent on situation) within around a few days. Tell someone.

Anyways, now bullying sucks and we all know it, don’t need to explain it further, but especially on the victims esteem and ego is what I want to address. If someone’s being bullied, and the bully is reported, what the actual fuck goes through the victims mind to suddenly just turn around and think they can act all tough, and get a massive ego boost. Ok, that person isn’t going to pick on you in the near future, and hopefully ever again, but why start doing what they once did to you? You may think you have back up from whoever reported it and the person in the institution that sorted it, but you don’t, no one will support a bully just because they used to be a victim. You’re just as bad as they previously once were. How can you go in a short period of time from feeling small with barely any self esteem, to being an egotistical idiot, who’s now a horrible person who makes others feel like they once did? No. No you cant do that. You’re as bad, if not worse, than the person who originally bullied you.

On another note, why befriend a bully! What a terrible idea! Just because again you think you have security from the reporter/sorter of your previous situation, doesn’t mean you can now safely befriend your bully. That’s delusional! They’re going to hate you more as they got in trouble because of you, any encounters you have aren’t going to be friendly, and they will just talk about you and mock you behind your back. They’ll be laughing at you as you try to impress them by showing you’re “strong” and wont be bullied by them. Honestly, that just shows they’ve won. They got in trouble, yet still make you dance like a puppet as you try to impress them, and you’re doing it to yourself, they don’t even have to make any effort to mock you. No, don’t do it, you’re better than them in every way, and shouldn’t waste your precious time on them, do better things like helping others, or being a good friend to the one who reported the bully and helped you out to begin with, that’s a person worth being friends with.

Rants just about done. Peace.
