Bullying ruins lives, have no doubt about that!
I'm sorry for all the people that were hurt, are being hurt or will be hurt. There is no excuse for bullying, even if some tend to say that bullies had a tough time in the past and that's why they act like this. Hey, a tough life determines you to desperately try to change the world and make it better, so that whomever you love/care about ( even if it's a friend, a boyfriend/a girlfriend, a husband/a wife, an animal companion or a stranger that may represent something to you in the future ) can live even just a day the way that you haven't had the chance to. So, no, there aren't any excuses. It's easy to ruin, but hard to build and maintain, right? Bullying doesn't require anything other than letting your primitive instincts take hold of you and the ones who keep it alive are actually the cowards, because they can't face their own darkness and overcome it. They get joy only by seeing sadness. It requires great character to live life altruistically. Few can do that and even fewer know that taking the fall at some point only makes you stronger. All of those out there who relate to this must remember that they are perfect just the way they are in the eyes of at least one
someone. Don't keep all the hurt inside, it will definitely consume you. Talk to someone you feel most comfortable with and you'll see that the world hasn't turned the back on you. Let it all out and breathe deeply. You will find the strength that you need inside, trust me, I've been there. You'll amaze yourselves at some point. I know that it is hard to believe before it happens, but it will. And when true love will come your way, there won't be anything that can bring you down as much as it would have a while ago. Your true essence will be revealed and you will discover the wonders of really not being alone
I want to share a story that I have found in =1001G
's Journal ( [link]
) today with all of those who are reading this. You can share it with others in your Journals or wherever you like and you can even share my previous words, the important thing is to relate
to the subject at some level and to care
. Here it is:"A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home."
Love is the only high purpose life has to offer. It is the ultimate goal and its rewards are infinite. May your days be brighter and easier, beautiful souls!
