One Way to Trick Your Bullies into Leaving You Alone

Is there ever a time when you should surrender to a bully? The answer is yes, or at least make it look like you’re surrendering to them. In life, there are times when we should pick and choose our battles- to decide whether to fight back or leave well enough alone. It is a must when your bullies are extremely powerful because it isn’t smart to fight them and give them a chance to defeat you.

Sometimes real power comes with swallowing your pride and giving in to them first. When you do this, you’ll only enrage the bullies and throw them off-kilter because they were looking for a fight and so sure they’d get one but didn’t.

There’s no point in fighting an unwinnable battle. Showing weakness can be a strength if you know how to use it correctly.

When you surrender (or make it look as if you do), you give yourself time to recuperate and time to torture and irritate your bullies subtly. You can sneakily sabotage your bullies in ways they’d never expect nor detect. Maybe you can get what you can out of the surrender, then fight later when your bullies are not so strong. Believe it or not, bullies do eventually lose power.

You don’t surrender because you give up. You do it to humor your bullies and lull them into a false sense of complacency- to fool them into thinking they’ve won. Understand that bullies are continually trying to show dominance and superiority, and if you make it look like you surrender to them, it’ll be so easy to trick them.

Being submissive to them (for the time being) makes them feel satisfied and powerful. In this, the bullies become easier targets for a later countermove or indirect ridicule.

For example, You surrender, and the bullies let you walk away. But as you turn and walk away, you can cut a silent fart in their general direction, and they won’t think it came from you. They’ll only be looking at each other and wondering who dealt it.

Silent ridicule works wonders for self-esteem!

With knowledge comes empowerment!

  2. It’s one of the best suggestions that I have ever read on handling the bullies. Awesome! 👏👏👏👌👌👌👌

  3. Great post. This one though is slightly risky. You have to do it the right way because the old adage of you give someone an inch, they will take a mile.

  4. I always love these tips. I think in certain situations it is definitely stronger to walk away from bullies. Picking your battles is a way of harnessing your own strength, energy, and power.

  5. Haha ha! Ending made me laugh!

    There’ve been times when I knew a bully or narcissist was in a high position of power to hurt me in a big way so I pretended he/she had ‘already’ cut me to the core just to stop them from using their super duper evil skills against me. It usually works. If they think they got you in a big way already, then they won’t usually expend the energy to use their real weapons (since they’re inherently lazy).
