I was bullied at school. I survived by attacking the biggest nastiest bully there was. The bizzarre thing was i was expelled for doing the right thing. I cant be arsed getting into details. However if you drop the main protagonist (bullying idiot) then the others will leave you alone. Its the way these tools work. They have one or two wide boys, who will go for you. If you humilliate one of the big lads then the others will back off. After a few years of bullying, i lost it and attacked those whom attacked me. As I say, i cant be bothered getting into it. If you fight back then the rest of these weaklings will back off. I know it seems hard and it is hard . But if people are afraid of you, they will not hurt you. Being punched does not hurt, it might nip a few hours later. Its nothing worth being afraid of. Anyway i was bullied, im 6ft 3, was in the Royal Millitary Police, worked as a door steward (bouncer) and have a titanium plate in my head. Those whom bullied me are now really scared of me. Believe me bullies are pussies. Get them on there own and they will urinate themselves Dont be afraid. Attack them, the word will get about. Of course im not saying you should attack them. violence is bad. But in the interests of defending yourself..... .....They will soon leave you alone. Getting punched a few times is better than putting up with *years* of turmoil best wishes gav.
