Bullying is bullying I don't care how you wanna slice it. No matter if it's an instance such as one that is listed below in the picture OR something else that is said about someone...over and over and over and over...getting worse and worse as it progresses. It's NOT constructive criticism, it's NOT giving helpful advice...it's plain out bullying. It doesn't make a difference how old the person is..young or old it doesn't change the fact that it is what it is. period! Even if the person themselves might have said something about you in the past or ticked you off in some way in the past it still doesn't make it right, for you nor for them. Part of being an adult is being wise enough to know that just because this person has pissed me off or hurt my feelings in the past doesn't mean that I need to stoop to their level and become a child and bully them over and over to prove my point. Maturity isn't a number, it's a frame of mind and knowing deep down what the right way to react to a person or situation is and actually DOING IT! Bullying isn't right at any age but it's especially ridiculous when it comes from adults that are trying to justify what they are saying as something other than that. I have seen it time and time again. It's completely ridiculous. Why? Why does it make anyone feel good to demean someone else? Even if the person you are picking apart or putting down has hurt your feelings in the past, why do you feel like it's ok to then hurt them? Two wrongs DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT! Think what you want but I don't care who you are, if it were your son, daughter, sister, brother and you were seeing the pain in their eyes then you would care. STOP THE BULLYING! This world is messed up enough, we don't need to add to it. NO ONE IS PERFECT! NOT YOU, NOT ME..NO ONE! Everyone at one point in their life has said or done something that they regret, you can't change it, you can just move forward and learn from it. It's not to late to change situations. It really isn't.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANNA SEE!
