5 Reasons Bullies Target the Best People

jealous, angry, mobbing

I’ve mentioned before that bullies seem to have a taste for the best people when they select their targets. They go for the people with hearts of gold, people who are intelligent, who are cooperative with authority, and those who have an unwavering moral compass and a sense of fair play and justice.

There are reasons bullies target these outstanding people:

1. Bullies experience anyone else’s goodness as their inferiority.

2. In these targets, they see their imperfections and flaws reflected back at them.

3. Bullies know that they’re most likely to be rejected by these people.

4. Bullies know if they tried to manipulate these people, they wouldn’t get very far.

5. Bullies instinctively know that these people are smart and would likely see through their manipulations, mind games, and facades.

Realize that the best people know themselves. And to know yourself is to trust yourself and know lies and abuse when you see them. This is why people who are “the best” are a huge threat to bullies and abusers.

  1. Another thought provoking post, Cherie!

    Even so, I am not sure it makes me feel any better- I am just me. I don’t usually go around feeling smart or superior- I am just trying to live my life. So should I slack off and try to bury my spark? That isn’t being authentic and I doubt that I can be less than I am. I aim to improve myself- to be better than I was the day before and not compare myself to others. My newest ambition is to love myself enough to see my worth and promote myself just enough so am not seen as arrogant.
