BULLIES

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS BULLIES. A BULLY IS AN INFLATED BIG BALL OF AIR THAT IS OFTEN MORE TALK THAN ACTION.  OFTEN, THEY ENJOY HOLDING POWER OUTSIDE OF THEIR HOME BECAUSE THEIR HOMELIFE FEELS OUT OF CONTROL.  IN FACT, IF THEY WERE NOT SO HURTFUL TOWARDS US, WE WOULD PROBABLY FEEL SORRY FOR THEM.  THEY WOULD BE A BITTER AND SAD PILL TO BE MADE TO SWALLOW.   BULLIES ARE OFTEN LONELY AND HAVE LEARNED THEIR BEHAVIOR TOWARDS WHOMEVER THEIR BULLYING FROM SOMEONE IN AN AUTHORITARIAN POSITION INSIDE THEIR WORLD.  WHEN THE LEADERSHIP WE HOLD DEAR TO OUR HEART HAS THE HEART OF A BULLY, RATHER THAN GET TRAMPLED, WE TEND TO MIMIC THE BEHAVIOR.  SADLY, A BULLY IS BORN EVERY DAY. 

SOMEONE WITHIN THE HOUSEHOLD WON’T STOP BULLYING THEM, SO THEY HAVE NO WAY TO VENT OR DIFFUSE THEIR ANGER.  THEREFORE, WHAT WE SEE FROM THEM IS A NEGATIVE BEHAVIORAL ATTITUDE GAINING ATTENTION BY “ACTING TOUGH AND ROUGH”.  I AM PAINTING JUST ONE PICTURE OF A BULLY.   BULLIES COME IN ALL SHAPES, AGES, AND SIZES SO YOU VERY WELL MAY DEAL WITH A BULLY WHEN YOUR GROWN.  I HAVE BUMPED ACROSS MY SHARE.  I VIEW MY CHILDHOOD AS A MISERABLE ONE FOR THE MOST PART.  THE HAPPIEST MEMORIES I HAD GOING BACK TO CHILDHOOD, WAS TIME SPENT WITH MY LITTLE SISTER, JENNY.  JENNY NEVER MADE ME FEEL SHE WOULD NEED TO BULLY ME IN ORDER TO PLAY WITH ME.  WE SIMPLY JUST, “WERE”.  I THINK OUTSIDE OF MY INTERACTION WITH HER, I SPENT MOST OF MY CHILDHOOD BULLIED IS ONE FORM OR ANOTHER. 

I THINK SOMETIMES WHEN WE DO NOT LEARN A LESSON WE ARE MEANT TO LEARN, IT MAY GET REPACKAGED, BUT IT PRESENTS ITSELF TO US IF WE ARE INDEED SUPPOSED TO LEARN IT OVER AND OVER.  THE BULLIES IN MY LIFE WERE MANY.  ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WAS FILLED WITH ONE I REMEMBER BECAUSE SHE WAS VERY MUCH LIKE A GHOST.   SHE CONTINUALLY HAUNTED ME.  I WAS THE PERFECT “VICTIM” ALREADY FEELING GAUDY AND INSECURE AS EACH YEAR PASSED ME BY.  I NEVER THOUGHT OF MYSELF AS ATTRACTIVE.  INSIDE I SUFFERED FROM SEVERE LONELINESS, OFTEN FEELING MISUNDERSTOOD. 

MY BULLY HAD ANOTHER NAME.   HER NAME WAS MICHELLE AND SHE CONVENIENTLY LIVED RIGHT NEXT STORE TO US.  HER STEPSISTER WAS ALSO MY BEST FRIEND NAMED KAREN.  I THINK KAREN FELT AMUSED WATCHING FROM THE SIDELINES.  SHE NEVER INTERCEDED BUT STOOD ON THE SIDELINES WATCHING.  HOWEVER, I VALUED OUR FRIENDSHIP SO I UNDERSTOOD WHY AND MADE EXCUSES FOR HER NEVER TELLING AN ADULT  ABOUT SHELLY’S ABUSE TELLING MYSELF SHE DIDN’T TELL ON MICHELLE SO WE COULD CONTINUE TO BE “BEST FRIENDS”. 

FUNNY HOW THE GRUDGES FROM CHILDHOOD MEMORIES LEAVE SCARS THAT STICK AROUND PERMANENTLY.   SHELLY HELPED ME IN ONE WAY BY PREPARING ME FOR OTHER BULLIES I WOULD HAVE TO COPE IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE THAT WOULD BE EVEN WORSE THAN HER.  GUILT WOULD ALLOW THE BULLIES THEIR KEY TO MY DOOR I HAD LOCKED. 

FOR KICKS, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER MEANING OF A BULLY.   

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF A BULLY-1.  A BLUSTERING, BROWBEATING PERSON ESPECIALLY ONE WHO IS HABITUALLY CRUEL, INSULTING, OR THREATENING TO OTHERS WHO ARE WEAKER, SMALLER, OR IN SOME WAY VULNERABLE TO THEM. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF BULLY-A PERSON WHO USES FEAR, INTIMIDATION, PHYSICAL AGGRESSION, AND/OR MENTAL ABUSE GIVING THEMSELVES SOME SEMBLANCE OR MODICUM OF CONTROL IN THEIR OWN CHAOTIC LIFE.  MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, A BULLY DOES AS A BULLY IS TAUGHT TO DO.
