Bullying Will Either Make You or Break You

All too often, whether at school or work, it’s the best of the best who get bullied- children and teens with pure hearts of gold, empathetic coworkers, the very people who don’t deserve it and who want to make the world a better place.

These are the people who are team players, who are cooperative and who deeply care about others. They extend kindness to others and will give you the shirts off their backs if you needed it.

Understand that simply caring– about anyone or anything is going to be painful. It’s why so many who were once kind and caring people are now cold, hard, angry and bitter. These people were relentlessly bullied and they allowed it to make them cold and mean. They are often those who adopt the “I’m going to get you before you get me” attitude.

For a long time, I was one of those people. After being bullied, I became no better than they were. I’m thankful that my eyes were opened and that I no longer have to resort to cruelty to protect myself. And I’m much happier and more confident in who I am!

Bullying has a way of taking it all out of you. It can take your self-esteem, your confidence, your happiness, your love and kindness for others, your energy, your health- even your will to live. But only if you let it!

Bullying will either make or break you.
It will either wise you up or dumb you down.

Either way, these results are up to you.

Bullying changes a person, no doubt about it. But don’t let it make you bitter. Let it make you better!

  1. Your post is so true. Bullying does change you. It didn’t make me bitter and mean, but it took away my trust of people. It destroyed my self-esteem, sent me into depression and because of it I missed possible good friendships because I built a wall around myself. Excellent post.

    • Thank you, sweetie! And I agree about the missed relationships because of lack.of trust! That happened to me as well. You gave me an idea for a future post! Hope you’re doing well!!! <3

    • Thank you, Aimee. I did the same thing- built a wall around myself. Thankfully, I later tore that wall down and allowed myself to have the most fulfilling relationships as I got older. And I have no doubt that you will too. Confidence and being open comes with age.
      I hope this reply finds you well and in good spirits!

      • I have tore the wall down as an adult and I have some wonderful friendships. Because I tore the wall down I found and married a wonderful man. I am doing good. I’ve been on vacation and tomorrow I’m going to start working on my guest post for you. I hope you are well.
        Aimee

        • Thank you, hon. I’m doing great. I’m so, so proud of you for tearing down that wall and I’m happy for you in your marriage and friendships. You deserve it all, Aimee- and MORE! Have a great day!
