Bullies Always Get Their Power from An Entourage.

concept of a mob attacking a person that they think is different

You will never see a bully alone. Why? Because they could never handle being by themselves. Peer-abusers are cowards! Wimps! Wusses! They always attack in groups because they need their wingmen as a source from which to draw and re-enforce power.

Without their backup, bullies are just as powerless as you are. A bully is too afraid to attack you one on one because they fear that you would bury them where they fall.

Yet, victims are (mistakenly) branded as cowards, although they are the ones who come to school or work and face bullies…alone, no matter how viciously they get brutalized. Through all the name-calling, the taunts, the brutal beatings, the threats to their lives, targets manage to reach within themselves and push through another day.

To endure that every single day for several years and still find the resolve to soldier on? Now that takes courage! These people are the real warriors!

It takes bravery to be a target of relentless bullying and remain standing tall. To be a victim of daily and constant abuse and make it to the finish line of high school graduation or the end-of-week paycheck?

To stay in the race, while most bullies drop out of school or quit their jobs when the going gets tough? That’s not only brave, but it’s also heroic! To be your own hero? That takes bravery bullies will never have!

Now, will the real wimps in the workplace or classroom please stand?
I rest my case.

If you are a victim, know that your bullies could never be half the man/woman you are! You have more heart, more soul, and more strength than they ever will!

  1. Almost all bullying especially at the middle school and high school level occurs in mass. Usually there is a leader and a bunch of followers, but the entourage either bullies with them or at the very least has their back. It is cowardness at its highest form. That is because as you said they don’t want to face someone one on one. The truth is if it is a one on one situation most people are more willing to stand in there and fight back eventually but when they see the bully has backup it becomes even more unnerving and it is hard to take a stand against someone who may be one of the popular kids.But if it it is one one one, the bully runs the risk of losing which destroys their reputation. That is not a risk they want to take. Frankly most kids through high school are followers.
