Not because it’s a shitty way to live – though it certainly is. Don’t be a bully because it doesn’t actually work.
It never has. And it never will. But I can’t deny that there are times when it genuinely feels like not only the best way to get what I want, but maybe even even the only option.
This is always a lie. And if being a bully ever does appear to be working, know that the day will come – sooner than you think – when it will abruptly stop working. We each reap what we sow, and when you’re a bully, you are reaping resentment and bitterness. Even if they take a while, they will catch up with you.
What works better than being a bully – and helps you sleep at night – is figuring out how to not need to be a bully. There is not one thing you could possibly want in this world where bullying is the best way to get it.
Think about it this way – if bullying was was going to solve your problems, don’t you think it would have solved some of them by now?
Try something else. Anything else.
