All too often, whether at school or work, it’s the best of the best who get bullied- children and teens with pure hearts of gold, empathetic coworkers, the very people who don’t deserve it, and who want to make the world a better place.
These are the people who are team players, who are cooperative, and who deeply care about others. They extend kindness to others and will give you the shirts off their backs if you needed it.
Understand that simply caring– about anyone or anything is going to be painful. It’s why so many who were once kind and caring people are now cold, hard, angry, and bitter. These people were relentlessly bullied and they allowed it to make them cold and mean. They are often those who adopt the “I’m going to get you before you get me” attitude.
For a long time, I was one of those people. After being bullied, I became no better than they were. I’m thankful that my eyes were opened and that I no longer have to resort to cruelty to protect myself. And I’m much happier and more confident in who I am!
Bullying has a way of taking it all out of you. It can take your self-esteem, your confidence, your happiness, your love and kindness for others, your energy, your health- even your will to live. But only if you let it!
Bullying will either make or break you.
It will either wise you up or dumb you down.
Either way, these results are up to you.
Bullying changes a person, no doubt about it. But don’t let it make you bitter. Let it make you better!

My empathy is heaven sewn. You can break me bodily, but you’ll never break my empathy.
There you go! You’re on the right track! 💯👍
I get this. I have been bullied a lot. I keep picking myself up and choosing to be better, day by day.
I’m so proud of you for refusing to let the bullies win over you. Keep up the great work! 😊👍
Thank you! I’ll keep trying. Honestly, I’m not used to people saying they’re proud of me! Lol
Well, I’m proud of you. Stay strong sweetie! People only try to bring down the best!
This is true either if u get thru u emerge the strongest or some loose a part of self ever
You’re absolutely correct.💯
Being broken is not an option becoming stronger is. BTW Sympathetic is the word not empathy, empathy is a form of soul healing not an emotion, it is a gift.
Yes indeed! 😃
This should be taught to kids both in home and school since childhood. Bullying is so common these days among adults as well as they misuse social media to malign anyone’s reputation by just one click anonymously…
They sure do and it’s a shame. How people can look themselves in the mirror after destroying someone’s life is beyond me.
