The problem is, bullying is a trait of human nature which was learned by people, probably way back, to snatch booty and to control and dominate others.

The only ways to stop bullying are:

1. To ignore it if this makes it go away. If that fails then:

2. To hit back by whatever means needed. Hit it where it hurts.

If you watch any film or programme with bullying content, the means needed to stop bullying is always to stand up to the bully. Not reacting can work in some situations but the context here is important. You need to be able to afford to ignore the bully.

Afford to ignore

It is impossible or at least very difficult to ignore someone who is pummeling your face into the ground or breaking your limbs. It is just as difficult to ignore someone tugging your lunch out of your hands when you are hungry.

In the instance of role power bullying by anyone in a position of authority over you, it is just as difficult to ignore them as, in the case of bullying, the attack against you will escalate before it stops. The escalation might cost you too much to survive it. A bully who has any power over you can leave you with:

  • A loss of physical health
  • A loss of income
  • A loss of assets
  • A loss of support when they scare off your allies
  • No sign of any way out or defence
  • Even a loss of life

In short: a bully will want and try to take from you as much as they can and whatever they think they can get away with. They will know no bounds and their methods will known no limits.

Some COVID-19 Silver Linings – Past, Present and Possible

The pandemic has stopped humanity in its tracks. City streets are deserted and even politicians are reaching for experts to guide us. The world is talking and ordinary people’s voices are being heard. Creativity and resilience are increasing and people are caring for vulnerable citizens like never before.

We have to get our priorities straight right now and maybe for good.
