“The More You Stir Sh**, The More It Stinks”

Bullies are notorious for sowing discord among other people. They just can’t seem to get enough drama. In fact, they thrive on it. Have you ever wondered why?

It’s to keep the spotlight off themselves and their despicable behavior and dirty dealings. Lots of times, they do it as a distraction. If the bullies can stir the pot and keep others at each other’s throats, they get to look like gods and be untouchable.

Also, bullies get cheap thrills from watching others tear each other down. Trust me, bullies love that stuff!

It also makes the bullies look as if they’re above it all. Bullies use appearances to look better than what they were. And the more they can stir it up and make it stink, the better they smell.

Remember this the next time you see bullies trying to instigate hatred between other people. Remember this the next time bullies try to instigate a fight between you and a former friend, or between another classmate or coworker.

Understand that this is done in politics all the time. In fact, it’s what the media is best at. It is called the Divide and Conquer strategy. And it’s used to sow discord among people. And sadly, it works. And in more ways than one.

The next time someone tries to turn you against a friend or tries to turn a friend against you, ask yourself who the division would benefit most. You, your friend or the instigator?

With knowledge comes empowerment!

    • Bullies, always have to have a pack of followers to back them up. It’s what makes them such cowards. They can’t stand on their own so they must have an entourage behind them.

  1. Well Said, dear Cherie. You have given a wonderful insight into the working of a bully’s mind.

  2. Really good post! I don’t understand people that love drama as I am the complete opposite. But I do try to steer clear of them! Thanks for the reminder! Best Wishes! Leigh

    • Thank you so much, Leigh! I’m the same as you, I can’t stand drama and will remove myself if I smell even the slightest whiff of it. Best wishes to you too! 💖

  3. Oh girl let me tell you!!!!!! I wish I had read this about four years ago. I love the end when you stated who will this benefit!! Spit on girl…spot freakin on.

    • Thank you so much, Bella! I think we all wish we’d known about these things earlier in life. I know I do! But look at you now, you’re a powerhouse! A warrioress! And I’m so proud of you! 💪💪💪

  4. I want to expose some unnamed players: grandparents because their boredom (retirement) , they take :the energy, time, affairs, triumphs, ideas; for their fake fame.
    While they need to clean the trash under the rug.
    The grandsons & the parents, need to want their lives, without any “narcisist/bully” tactics , and enjoy each step, day and triumph they acchieve; and recover all the resources they deserve.

  5. Smear campaigns — the worst. Narcissists use them on discarded targets. I can see right through it now, it took me a long time to develop a trained eye for the word salad they barf up.
