This means the one who bullies had suffered the pain of bullying at some point in their life and they have learned to bully from the one who'd bullied them, unfortunately sometimes from someone in their own family. It's very hard to learn the right way to resolve conflicts and deal with your own anger and frustrations when you've never been shown the right way to cope with them. But it's never too late to learn to be better and decide from now on that you will do better.
This is the perfect time to make that change and we are so glad you've landed on this page now! Studies show that bullies are significantly more likely than others to fail at school and experience depression, violence, and crime. That is definitely not the future to look forward to and the sooner you change that for yourself the better. Also those who get bullied often, at some point will start to fight back and depending on the amount of the anger built up, they may end up hurting you, others, and themselves badly.
Good news is that if you decide to change today, you can change your future and even become the example for those who bully you.
Forgive. Forgive yourself, forgive your parents, and forgive those who have bullied you. Nobody's perfect and we all make mistakes. Parents make mistakes too just as much as children do. Forgive yourself for any mistakes you have done in the past and do better from now on.
Be kind to all specially those who are less fortunate than you.Try to be their friend and help them. Helping people feels so much better that hurting them. Studies show that doing an act of kindness improves the mood and health of the one doing the kind act as well as the one receiving it as well as anyone who observes this act being done. Try it once and you will feel the difference. Also have compassion for yourself. If you've been bullied before, you know how bad it hurts. You need to make sure no one feels that pain. Now that you know better, choose to be better; choose to be a friend.
