In Part 1, I discussed how bullies rule in the Kiddie Pool of Life. Today, let’s look at how you get to live your life int he Big Pool with the other adults.
For most bullies, high school is literally the highlight of their lives. They enjoy it while they can, because the real world doesn’t care who you were in high school, how popular you were, or if you were captain of the varsity team, on the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen/King, or class president.
All the world wants to know is whether or not you can contribute something to it. And most bullies are generally incompetent as people and contribute only negativity.
Many of my traits that were ridiculed by my bullying classmates in school are today the same characteristics that people today value and admire about me.
WHAM! Take that, bullies! (Forgive my very satisfied chuckle.)
Most of my former bullies live very unsatisfying lives. They work low-paying, dead-end jobs they hate. They have spouses and partners who abuse them or cheat on them every chance they get. They’re incarcerated or in trouble with the law. They’re addicts.
They’re very sad, lonely, dissatisfied, and bitter forty-somethings.
Life for them didn’t turn out like they thought it would. So they retreat to what worked for them at the high point of their lives and they continue bullying others to make themselves feel better or more important. Only now, because they’re so much more unhappy, their bullying is that much worse than it was back in school.
If you’re currently a victim of bullying, know that it all does work out—You’ll get what you’ve long deserved and so will they. They may be cool now and having the time of their lives, but I can guarantee it doesn’t last.
And neither does what they’re putting you through.
High school is the kiddie pool. The adult world is the big pool! Let them have the kiddie pool—let them be the kings and queens of that kiddie pool…while go on and rule the big pool, with all the adults, where things are meaningful and deep.
Cherie White, both a writer and author, joined the team after being discovered by Brian through her own personal blog and through social media. She has been writing ever since she was ten years old and has a love for writing articles, short stories and novels. She became intrigued with the new Pyngby app because it helps victims pinpoint victims and their harassers for easy protection and litigation if need be. Because she experienced severe bullying from sixth grade until changing schools during her last year of high school, she has a passion for spreading bullying awareness and helping those who are bullied and abused today. Her goal is to bring down the suicide rate among bullied children, teens and young adults. Her debut novel, “From Victim to Victor” is available now at LuLu. Cherie looks forward to helping victims through Watchdog Creative.
