Bullying

It is ironic that the generations that grew up with anti-bullying training turned out to be even more effective bullies.

Try expressing an opinion that is not the accepted one in that forum and you will know what I am talking about.

There are two ways to deal with bullying:

  1. Do not give in, hoping that the bully will leave you alone
  2. Do not join in, hoping that you will gain favor of the bully

Both will be perceived as a weakness by the bully, and a bully will use you to show the next victim how strong he is.

The hardest part is, I think, that someday you might have to forgive the bully, but it is necessary to hold the door open for those that realise they behaved badly. But forgiving is part of being kind, and being kind is important.
