Case of the Bullies

When I was younger right up till my late teens, I have been the case of bullies and though they didn't actually physically assault me, their words hurt me a lot. Initially I was upset a lot but my father would tell me that I should just ignore them. I guess he just want to hush me up coz he didn't want me to bother him. But anyway I just followed his advice.

Infact I followed it so closely that I got kinda jaded already with the whole verbal bully thing. Naturally I would still feel upset about it to a certain extent coz I'm still a sensitive soul and I'm just a girl. Eventually I managed to hush up the cruelty of the people by just living in my own world. Hence why I was quite a loner.
While I may ignore them, I believe that good things will come my way so long as I continue to be a good kid. I also learn to be more tolerant towards people as I don't want to end up like them. From my experience from such people, I become more selective over who I should be hanging around more with and who I should avoid.

To me, it doesn't matter if I don't have that many friends. Why? Because good friends are hard to come by. A majority of people aren't fit to be called friends because of the way they treat people.
That is why I feel a lot for the people who are constantly being bullied by the peers as well as the society at large. Sometimes these people don't know the consequences of their words and actions. To them, it is nothing. It is just a play thing for them. What they don't know as well is that if they continue to bully other people, those who have suicidal tendencies may actually really try to kill themselves. They see it as the only way out because sometimes the pressure is so hard and that they are just so exhausted mentally and physically that they are willing to end their lives.

They can't see that things will eventually get better but any minds, especially the adolescents, will view such bully acts as being extreme if the same thing happen again and again. They may act irrationally.
So if you know any kids or even adults facing the case of the bully, listen closely to their pleas. Don't treat them lightly. Nobody deserves to be bullied.
Please think about those who ended their young lives easily due to extreme case of bullying. You don't want another addition to the rising figures right?

I hope people will just learn to be nicer in general. Words may just be harmless but they will no longer be harmless if a life is lost in the process. Can you live with the guilt?
Please treat everyone with respect. Make the world a generally better place to live in.
