How to Not Let Bullies Get What They Want
When you say what you mean it is likely that well-meaning people will know what you mean. I always notice in newspapers when someone has a personal agenda, they will manipulate whatever they can to try to get their way. As a reader of the article, I am thinking what an idiot they are and find nothing they say rings true. I will try hard to see their point of view. I like fairness. As someone who trained a journalist and has a respect for the profession, I will look for both sides of the argument. People being obstructive seem to give themselves away. They are, in effect, using bullying tactics.
So we’re back at bullying. What I have said so far is to put bullying in context with other behaviours to show that it is ridiculous to waste energy and funding on trying to stop bullying. You have to stop being bullied. Let the bully do what they want. If you are not affected by it they will give up and go away. Honestly. Read Chapter 11 on tailgating for a prime example.
