An Explanation of Cyber-Bullies, Stalkers, and Trolls

Bullies are cowards, but Cyber-bullies are the biggest, most pathetic ones. They sit in the safety of their homes (or their mom’s basements, attics, and backyard sheds), hide behind fake profiles and screen names, and troll the internet and social media in search of victims.

If you’ve ever dealt with a cyber-bully, I knew how you feel, and I understand. Words do have power and it’s easy to be hurt when anyone attacks you, online or off. I, too used to get upset and feel bad back in the early days of the internet when I’d look at my instant messages and find that some idiot had sent me a flamer.

However, today, I’ve learned to see it for what it is and the cyber-bullies for who they are. And that in itself can be a real boost to the self-esteem.

When I think of the term “cyber-bully,” I instantly get a mental picture of one of two types of people:

1. Some broke, unemployed and shirtless fat guy sitting and typing on a computer in his granny’s basement, while stuffing his face with Cheetos and sporting a man-bun.

2. A skinny, pimple-faced, bespectacled incel who only trolls the net to compensate for his lack of sex and a social life in the real world.

Any time I have a cyber-bully who’s hot on my trail, and I occasionally do, one of those pathetic pictures immediately pops up in my mind, and I can’t help but chuckle to myself. Because cyber-bullies often use fake profiles or screen names with either a blank photo or one that’s fake, it only shows that they’re faceless cowards and not to be taken seriously.

These losers talk so big and tough behind that keyboard- oh, yeah! They’re real badasses online, but you can bet that if they ever saw you on the street, they wouldn’t have the sack to step up. So, ask yourself these questions.

Should we take these wusses so seriously?

Should we give these worthless schmucks the power to make us feel bad about ourselves?

Should we value their useless gibberish?

Though I can’t speak for anyone else, I have a hard time valuing the worthless opinions of anyone who doesn’t have a name or face. Any person who’s a Rambo in cyberspace but a George McFly on the street, I can only take with a horselaugh and a grain of salt.

You either have a big, brass pair or you don’t.

It takes a real zero to spend even a few hours a day trolling other users. You just know that the person has no ambition, no prospects, and no life. Understand that when you’re cyber-bullied, often you’re dealing with a poor soul who is bored, lonely, and miserable. And the only way he/she can feel good about themselves and have power is to do what they’re doing now.

Therefore, if any cyber-bully attacks you online, you shouldn’t put a lot of stock into their opinions. Their words don’t carry a lot of weight. Understand that cyber-bullies are often people who flame others because they’re insecure, self-loathing, and have nothing going for them.

Online is the only way these pathetic people can have a social life, and that alone speaks volumes about the kind of people they are and the crappy lives they lead. So, again, should you take these losers seriously? Are they worth getting angry or depressed over? These idiots can’t make you feel bad about yourself unless you allow them to.

Though words have power, and they can hurt you, you should always consider the source. Because in truth, most cyber-bullies live miserable existences and should only be pitied.

With knowledge comes empowerment!

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post. I found it not only interesting but also a great touch of humor. ♥️♥️🌹🌹🌹

  2. The internet was a male invention and domain for a long time. I sympathize with the particular nonsense women still have to put up with online 😠😠

  3. Cyber bullying is truly the worst and lowest form of bullying. It makes me sad to think of how kids today are growing up with this being a prevalent possibility. But glad people are recognizing it and finding ways to speak up and to combat this truly ugly form of bullying. 🙏

  4. I love this post! I have come to see the cyberbullies the same way, wasting their lives at their computers looking for way to make them feel better by putting others down. Especially men going after women! Utter nonsense!

  5. I’m glad you brought the topic of cyber bullies… it’s a big problem now a days! Also trollers and soft ghosters who relentlessly stalk you online or suddenly disappear into thin air.. Online world is a cruel one 😱

    • Right. 😂🤣 Luckily, I haven’t heard from them since. Maybe they figured I was a lost cause because they couldn’t get me to react. Sure, I responded, but I didn’t react and it worked. 😊

      All has been pretty good around here lately.

  6. Someone in a group I follow on Facebook had a cyber stalker. I pointed out that the stalker was some chicken shit who would run a mile if you met them in real life. I had many likes in the group and the person felt reassured.
