Getting people to stop bullying someone? - August 24th 2016, 12:51 AM

There's a lot of backstory that would take far too long to get into, but the gist of the situation is exactly as the question states. Something to note is that I doubt that the involved parties even realize what they are doing and experiencing. This has been going on at a minor level for years, just immature banter at the start, gradually gaining intensity so that everyone is so used to the situation that no one realizes how things really are.


What news from the West, O wandering wind, do you
bring to me tonight?
Have you seen Boromir the Tall by moon or by starlight?

I think that first, people need to realize themselves what is going on. This will usually be after something bad happens, and sometimes there is no other way. Sometimes shit just needs to hit the fan for people to open their eyes.

But it sounds like you know what is going on. I can't advise much because you've given pretty much no context, but I imagine helping the affected individual to find a new circle of friends should work. Talk to them, invite them over or something like it. Try to draw the affected person away from the bad influence. I can't say much else because you didn't give many details.

.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
