Bullying with words which are abusive in nature is common. You have the power to minimize the harm.
In general people are jealous in nature. If you are good at something then they will despise you. They would want to shut you down – sometimes blocking your way or sometimes telling you harsh things.
They want you to break down.
It is a constant battle which you may need to fight. The key is to not lose hope. Work on yourself and all the things will fall in place.
In most of the cases the bullying person is able to mentally and physically harm you because you are letting them do it. You are giving the permission to them. Take that control and you will find yourself in a better situation.
Things You Can Control
Make a list of all the things for which people are mocking you. It can be height, stammering or athletic skills. Some of the things like athletic might be something you need to improve upon.
Let’s say you want to be an athletic person – and currently you aren’t. So work on your body and crush the bullying guys with your success.
On the flip side – if you don’t care if you look athletic or not, then don’t take the harsh words about your athletic skills to your heart. Because you know it isn’t something which you care about anyway.
Let them say whatever they want – and you should carry on with your day. The key is to not react.
Sooner or later, they will realize you aren’t reacting and it won’t be a fun game for them and eventually they will stop.
If anyone is harming you physically then share the information with your closed ones and let them take the call. Don’t suffer for any long. The more you fear – the more it will keep happening.
The end to suffering from physical abuse is to report it. If it is affecting you then it should stop.
You can battle the mental bullying by giving no attention and making yourself strong. And that’s how you should lead your life too.
In any case, sharing the bullying with someone you trust helps a lot than you can imagine. Don’t keep it yourself. Stay strong, stay positive.
