Good on you.

I was bullied in High School, so was my Fiance. I look forward to the day where I can do exactly as you have done because really, isn’t that the best revenge that you can give? The people who hurt me don’t affect my life any more.

Well done.

Good on you.

She’s probably a very different person now too and I bet she feels ashamed of her behaviour back then. I know that even though I didn’t bully anyone, there were times when I could have been nicer to a couple of people and I feel bad about it. I’m sure if I acted the way she did I would be horrified and think I was a complete monster. I’d never forgive myself if I did that.

I was bullied quite a bit when I was a kid.  I was the odd kid out no matter where I was.  A little while ago though, it hit me…I was mad at 9-15 year-old kids.

It’s kind of hard to hold onto that hatred when you realize how flipping young they were (okay, 15, not so much).

I don’t know.  Sometimes I think I wouldn’t even go back in time and stop it.  Standing up to bullies kind of shaped me.  I faced the biggest bully when I was a young newlywed with a prince-charming-turned-monster, and I think if I hadn’t grown a bit fierce as a kid, it would have taken me longer to leave.

ETA: Not advocating an approach of “let people be bullied,” it’s just a weird thing to think about how I would be now if I hadn’t been bullied.

Good for you girl, I’m so glad you went and talked to her, more power to you.

I’m sorry you were bullied in HS though, it’s hard as it is, going through HS I mean, so you definitely didn’t need the extra pain.
