Anytime bullies escalate their abuse- anytime they increase their name calling and double their efforts to besmirch you, it only means they’re scared to death and desperate to contain the threat that you are to them. They see you as a threat to their perceived status and power.
Therefore, they feel they must double down on the abuse. What they don’t realize is that they only make themselves look desperate and pathetic. Their blatant repetition and redundancy is so telling. Bystanders and witnesses to their deplorable behavior might not say the quiet part out loud but trust me, they see it, and they think it.
And rest assured that the ones who take the bullies’ side already know who the good guy is, only they’ll never admit it because they’re too scared of becoming the next target.
Always remember that. You have more power than you know. Bask in it.

I think you are on to something here. My bully sued me into silence, but I took the opp to go after him in another way. Sometimes, bullies must be fought by stealth, but they must be fought. My bully thinks he’s a gangster. He called to tell me his scapegoat was dead and that I would never get back what he stole from me. I think I was supposed to be frightened into silence. When that didn’t work, he sued me.
I truly appreciate your writings on this subject. They have been a support and spur to action for me.
I’m so sorry this person keeps giving you such a difficult time. The fact that he’s still calling you shows that he’s a stalker and that he is obsessed with hurting you. I’m so glad that this blog helps you. Thank you so much for your comment and know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏❤🙏❤
