Yesterday I was looking at the Facebook profile of a girl I used to be “friends” with in middle school before she became the mean girl and began bullying me, spreading rumors etc. I’m pretty sure you’re thinking to yourself ,”Why would you go on your bullies profile.”
I didn’t go on there to snoop. I actually went on there to see what’s she’s done since middle school. I then notice that she has a son and is in high school. Not to mention she’s only a year older than me.
A few years ago I saw pictures of a kid but assume it was a sibling. Now your probably wondering what does this have to do with what your title? Well it has a lot to do with it. Not only did I visit that profile of the mean girl or bully but others also. But as I look at their profiles. I couldn’t help but to think what would it be like if I had the opportunity to interview each and every one of them.
Not only that but the reason they would give for it and why? What was the reason for them bullying me? Would they say “You thought you were better than everyone” Or my favorite “Because it was fun or funny?” What was the reason? Don’t worry I’m not still hurt by the stuff they said, I moved on. But just just like any bully victim I guess you can say you always have questions.
That’s why I asked people on different social media sites. Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and instagram. “If you had the opportunity to interview your child hood bullies would you? I got a few responses. One comment on Facebook from someone saying “I would ask them to give me three reasons to give them the antidote” Which was quite interesting!
Whether we want to admit or not I think our bullies affected us tremendous ways in positives and negatives of course probably more negatives than positive. The positives us realizing young that not every kid, will be nice or welcoming to you. Negatives the emotion, mental, physically abuse are bullies had or have on us whether it was name calling, abuse, emotional and physical anxiety.
