5 Ways to Deal with Bullying – The Psychology Behind Bullying
Happiness is the goal, but you are in an environment where you are constantly put down, threatened, excluded, and made to feel you are not good enough. You feel afraid, hurt, embarrassed, lonely, … bullied.
Life can be better for all of us. When we are able to recognize that we are in a bullying situation and take active steps to change our lives, life feels better. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be respected. You deserve to have fun.
In order for everyone to live the life that they want, we all have to pull together and say “no” to bullying. A bully feeds off of the approval of others. And guess what, when you see someone getting bullied and look the other way, you are saying that it is OK! That that person did not deserve to be respected. Let’s stand together and start to say “no” to bullying.
We can end bullying together.
Bullies are trying to accomplish something. They often have had negative past experiences that cause them to lash out at others to try to overcome their own negative self view. Acts of violence and aggression puts the bully in a position of power (momentarily) and cause them to feel superior (momentarily). This is not a long term solution and many bullies live difficult lives because of their actions.
