How do you calm yourself down knowing that bullies around the world win and get what they want? - August 3rd 2014, 08:18 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

This fact really depresses me, literally. Obviously, there are a lot of bullies that do get punished, but there are plenty who get everything they want, and if they don't, they throw a fit until they do...

How do I calm myself down?

Hi there!

Unfortunately, there are people who get a lot of what they want handed to them and I can see how that would bother you. However, there are also plenty of people who work for what they have and take pride in doing so. Although this can be upsetting at times, I think it's important to remember that there's a little bit of good in everyone and sometimes it can be harder to see the good in some than it is to see in other people.

Additionally, looks are deceiving. Everyone is fighting a battle we don't know about and we don't see what happens behind closed doors. So no matter how perfect and lucky it looks like someone may be, that could be far from the truth. People bully for a reason, (they feel bad about themselves, they had a rough upbringing, etc) not out of the blue. Something unpleasant likely occurred to the bully themselves.

Items cannot buy happiness and even though I'm sure there are things you want but can't have, those are incentives that you can have pride in earning with jar that you save spare change in or the absence of a bad habit - however you'd like to earn something.

To calm yourself down I think distracting yourself would help. Try to fill your mind with positive thoughts instead of negative ones. Maybe take a walk or run for a change of scenery; read a book; watch a movie; watch funny videos on YouTube; call a friend to chat.

The biggest problem with bullies is that as long as we approach the thing peacefully and with mercy, nothing will happen. We can throw campaigns and public speeches about how much we want to deal with bullying and how radical moves we'll start, but to be honest, there is no possible way it will work. Best we can do is to teach kids how to fight back, how to deal with bullying themselves. Not only will this help them deal with bullies, but also raise their confidence, which will help them later in many, many moments of life.

Who dares - wins.
