Reasons Bullies Need Targets

They want you to think that you need them! You don’t. In fact, it’s just the opposite. They need you! Let me explain further:

Bullies need targets as guinea pigs on which, to demonstrate their perceived power and might.

They need victims to feel better about themselves.

Bullies need targets to blame their stupidity and bad behavior on.

Bullies need victims to scapegoat and to be a dumping ground for all their problems and shortcomings.

If you’re a target, Your bullies need you as a shield to cover their own cowardice.

They need you to entertain and get laughs from their audiences.

And they need you to look cool and in control in front of everyone else.

Understand that bullies need you more than you will ever need them!

With knowledge comes empowerment!

  1. I have come to see bullies are cowards, using targets as scapegoats to try and hide their own bad behaviors. If they put all the focus on you, no one is paying attention to what they do. Don’t let them hide.

  2. True, after all they are losers for a reason unless they are brave enough to face their issue and regret their actions.

  3. Predators need prey and, ideally, they don’t even want to chase them…they would like their prey to just walk into their mouths 😊😊

    • Absolutely! 💯 Family bullies are exponentially more difficult to deal with and the pain of it is a lot worse because you don’t expect bullying to come from family members who are supposed to love and protect you. 💔

  4. If you’re a target, Your bullies need you as a shield to cover their own cowardice……………………….Yes True!
    They need you to entertain and get laughs from their audiences…………………..This is also true. Applied on me.

    • It was applied on me also, Arun. It’s just too bad for them that I ended up getting the last laugh- I wrote and published a book about the abuse I got from them and I made it my livelihood to write about and warn others about people like them. So, it was turned around for good. I think this was the biggest slap in the face I could ever give them! 😁😁😁

  5. I would like to read the book written by you.
    I am astonished that it happened on you too.
    Where should I go?
    The people around are fan of my bully.
    What magic she is having??
    Based on lies.
    World is also like that.
    Thank you so much for your reply.
    I am okay now.
    What else. Today also I have been hurt 🤕

  6. They absolutely do need targets in order to help their self-esteem. I still can’t wrap my head around why some people are the way they are but I think sometimes we just have to accept that we may never fully understand

  7. I’ve noticed this myself, where my puppy dog will get upset and take out her conflict on the other dog. I immediately recognize this behavior and rectify it as much as I can, highlighting the harm she is doing and making sure she understands that bullying is bad! 👎
    The sad part of this is that people often use this harmful form of ratification to make themselves feel better while hurting the receiver, to the point they no longer understand why such hurt is caused.
    Humans may have evolved but yet we cannot accept our own insecurities and negative traits to such a point, where we take it out on someone else who doesn’t deserve it at all. It is toxic and will leave more damage than we can begin to understand. This is how such toxic behavior gains momentum, as the affected can take on these traits and exploit it causing further damage.
    Excellent insight into a topic that needs to be addressed more today and not left to the receiver to overcome; since it will surely continue on if it isn’t overcome.
    Thanks for sharing 👍 I appreciate your support and always stood up for people being bullied but in contrast; it would be difficult to do if a crowd took on such toxicity towards exploitation and control.

    • Thank you so much! And you’re right. Aminals do the same thing but humans are supposed to be taught better. Sadly, humans are getting more primal these days. And nowadays, we’re living in dark times. If we don’t get a handle on it soon, I’m afraid that things will escalate to the point to where all it will take to be murdered is to have someone not like you. It’s scary! And bullies have killed their targets. 😢
