Recently I read a post from a fellow blogger, http://help-me-rhonda.com/2012/08/22/the-rest-of-the-story/ .Now i am, as many of you know that there is alot of bulling that goes on where a person has been bullied so bad that they have committed suicide or went and killed the person(s) involved, not only over the bulling but also because they would go to someone to let them know about it and the person(s) wouldn’t do anything or when someone tried the bulling got worse. Here is one of many examples, another example is of a 10 year old , The next link is about two students that have gone to the extreme and actually taken out their frustration on the bullies amongst others as well. Now not all the people who were killed or injured in the video were involved with the bulling, but that just goes to show how tormented the minds can get, when the bulling can get to the extreme and the bullied feel they have to do whatever it takes to make sure their points clear. ” I am not going to go on being BULLIED“.
How ever in the end the two students who had caused all the chaos had committed suicide after killing 11 males and 5 females. Another sad story of bulling was taken right from a local new station WOOD TV 8.
How ever not all Bulling cases end in suicide, besides the post
I have linked to in the first line, there was a recent story that takes place in a little city of West Branch Mi. Where a teenage Girl was bullied into not going to her Homecoming. The teenager turned that bulling into something just the opposite and with the help of her mother and the City she went to her homecoming.
In some cases bullies, become this way because they are insecure about them self, trying to act big in front of their friends, or just think it is fun to pick on someone smaller then them, someone who has a medical condition, such as Cerebral Palsy, and other conditions that would impair speech like M.S., now the ones that have just started to bully, if they get a big response of laughter, from a crowd they will continue, on the other hand if just one person steps in to help stop it, The bully will then move on to another target, and the cycle continues. The cycle will continue unless the bully finds a target that will put the bully in his place (sad to say) but I think all bloggers can put into perspective what I mean by in his PLACE. Which will then turn the cycle back on the first bully and the cycle wont go the way I had stated at first because the first targets would be laughing at the target because of what he put them through. Now the story is going to end in one of three ways, two of which I have listed above. The third he/she is going to say I deserved this and I am strong enough to take it. I am going to go on as if it doesn’t matter. However that very seldom happens, because once the bully finds that the tactics that were working are no longer working they will go to the more extreme and get more and more help from other students and more volgure with their words and other tactics that the target won’t be able to handle it. Not to long ago there was a student in a southern state who committed suicide because her boyfriend had sent a mass text of a pic of her upper half uncovered, which she had sent to him, thinking he would keep it for himself. In closing all I can say is, some cases a bully can be read like a book, and can be stopped depending on why he started bulling, who he is bulling, how long, what kind of crowd he has and how big of a crowd. With that being said sometimes the bigger the crowd the harder it is on the bully if you are able to knock him down and get him to stop because, then all the people he thought he had behind him are now laughing at him because they now see him as a nobody who was just picking on people to boost their egos ect. A good song related to what I am trying to say in reguards to which bullies you are try to confront and the ones to leave alone is Best Gamblers Song ever.
