When Bullies Magically Become Board-Certified Shrinks

Isn’t it funny how quickly bullies can become board-certified shrinks? And they can do it overnight, without reading as much as a single word out of a psychology textbook.

As we all know, bullies are legends (or Doctors of Psychology) in their own minds and they only make themselves look stupid when they “diagnose” anyone they cannot manipulate.

This little phenomenon is called “pop-psych,” and, in all it’s entitlement (and embarrassment), empowers bullies to conduct, “remote analyses” while holding little to zero education in the field of Psychology.

If you’re a target of bullying who’s been dx-ed by bullies, you can counter these accusations of insanity by reading a basic psychology 101 textbook, then asking your bullies questions that challenge the narrative.

For example:

Jack: “Don’t hang out with Jill. She’s crazy.”

Kelly: “Crazy? That sounds like a pretty serious accusation. Crazy in what way?”

Jack: “Uh…I don’t know. Like schizo or something.”

Kelly: There are five categories of schizophrenia, which one do you think she falls into?”

Jack: “Uhhhhh…paranoid?”

Kelly: “I’ll have you know that paranoia is a common trait in many psychopathologies.”

Jack: “Uhhhh. I dunno. She’s talking about people talking about her and thinking they’re after her or something- that’s crazy.”

Kelly: “Jack, have you ever considered that possibility that Jill may be a target of bullying?”

Jack: “Oh, no! We’re not allowed to talk about that.”

Kelly: (Rolls her eyes and scoffs at Jack, then walks away.)

When bullies use pop-psychology, they do it out of ignorance and entitlement. They use mental health and mental illness as a weapon and end up making themselves look stupid.

With knowledge comes empowerment!

Bullies Want You Dependent, Submissive…and Stupid!

Remember that bullies hate a person who’s smart because one who’s intelligent can see through their smoke screens. They also hate anyone who’s independent because they’re least likely to be controlled and subdued. And most independent people are smart because they know how to improvise and need no one to hold their hand.

As we see in so many examples today in government and media, bullies would rather have you dependent, submissive, and stupid because a stupid person is a gullible person who will believe anything another person tells them even if it means it leads them to the slaughter.

Stupid people are the easiest to take power from and control because they never think for themselves, and they never think critically. They take everything at face value and fall for anything.

A stupid person either hasn’t had enough life lessons to learn, or they’ve been coddled and sheltered- they weren’t allowed to fall on their ass and made to pick themselves back up.

And thus, the stupid person is also dependent. He/she is dependent because they never learned how to fend for themselves. Who can learn anything when, people are constantly bailing them out?

The stupid are also submissive because they’ll do anything people, especially those who have a little influence (politicians, media, celebrities, sports figures…anyone with authority and clout) tell them just to stay in their good graces and the good graces of society and the public.

Understand that knowledge truly is power. Having the knowledge of evil and the motives and intentions behind it is the only way you’ll be able to protect yourself from it. For, it you don’t know evil is happening, you’ll never be able to defend yourself against it. Therefore, you will be blindsided and thrown off balance when evil finally strikes!

And then you will be defenseless!

And the same will be if you’re willfully blind and ignorant. Though ignorance may be bliss, it may be more comfortable and feel better, it won’t help you when evil strikes and reality is staring you square in the face. You’ll be just as defenseless!

You’re never too old to learn. And the process of attaining growth and wisdom is never comfortable. In fact, it can be downright painful because it requires that you unlearn some of the falsehoods that have been drummed into your head for so long.

It also requires that you admit that you were duped- that you fell for all the lies and that you were wrong. And, yes, it also demands that you admit that you are, or have been…wait for it…stupid! Gasp! Ouch!

It’s what I had to do, and it wasn’t fun, I can tell you!

They don’t call it “growing pains” for nothing.

But once you allow yourself to go through this process- to admit some hard truths about yourself and to take the pain, you will come out on the other side of it a much better version of yourself. You will be wise, and it will be as if you’ve been given a new set of eyes- ones that see so much clearer and can pick out the tiniest detail. And the devil is always in the details.

Ignorance is bliss, but only for so long. Eventually, you either wise up and act to save yourself, or you suffer the shock of realizing you were duped all along the moment you face the very real prospect of being destroyed by the very people who fooled you.

The more you know…

Would You Rather Be Hated for Being Smart or Pitied for Being Dumb?

I ask this question because there are a lot of people- people who are highly intelligent- who try to hide their smarts for fear of being hated, i.e., bullied. They’ve let others convince them that, because of their smarts, they come off as know-it-alls and tell them to dumb down because they “don’t want to make others feel bad about themselves” or that they just might offend some people.

This is total BS!

I want you to know one thing right now! It is not your responsibility to make someone else feel good about themselves. Whether your intelligence offends others is not your problem therefore, their hatred of you is also not your problem.

Understand that the reason why your intelligence may offend some people is because they are either jealous, intimidated, or insecure. It’s because of their own unaddressed psychological issues- issues that they’re trying to lay off on you.

Your intelligence may inspire some to doubt their own smarts and mental capabilities, or it may provoke others to compare themselves to you. Again, not your responsibility. They are the ones doubting and questioning their own intelligence. They are the ones who are making comparisons. You aren’t doing these things to them. They are doing it to themselves!

Again, you are not responsible for another person’s self-esteem. Only they can do the inner work needed to raise their confidence levels and if they’re too lazy to do that inner work, that’s on them!

Here’s another point I want to make: Though being hated can be frightening and doesn’t feel good, always remember that there’s dignity in being hated, but none in being pitied.

Yes, you read that correctly. When you’re hated, you still have your dignity. But when you’re pitied, you’ve lost all dignity and respect!

Smart people are hated. Stupid people are pitied.

Therefore, never hide your intelligence from anyone. Let yourself stand out and shine. And any time you feel tempted to hide your brilliance because you’re afraid of being bullied, ridiculed, or hated by others, ask yourself,

“Would you rather be hated for being smart or pitied for being dumb?”

I rest my case.
