Bullies

Not all bullies are found on playgrounds and in school hallways.

You find many in board rooms, classrooms, bedrooms and kitchens.

Bullies are weak people who seek out weaker people so they can feel strong by comparison.

They’re also cowards who hide their fear by finding victims too scared to resist them.

Bosses bully.  Parents bully.  Spouses bully.  So do friends.  So do siblings.

Some people are even bullied by their children.

It’s a rare person who hasn’t felt bullied somewhere by someone.

The first step to ending bullying is to call it by its proper name (X is just a bully.)

The second step is to resist it, despite your own fears and sense of weakness.  Push back.  Make yourself harder to bully.

Do that well enough, and usually no third step is necessary.
