• Bullies and hate

    I don't quite understand why some people bully others and hate on others. Is it because they are unhappy in there own lives? Do they feel so bad that it makes them somehow feel better to put others down? I don't know...

    The saying "sticks and stones may hurt my bones but words will never hurt me" is not true. Words do hurt and they can impact us in ways that do damage to our confidence and self esteem.

    Is it a power thing... wanting to control others? Are they jealous... do they want all the attention on themselves? Are they, the bullies - the haters, sad with themselves, hurting on the inside?

    Is it the cycle of violence - the cycle of abuse perhaps that makes some of these folks need to bully, hate and hurt others? I don't know...

    I would like to believe in general people are good and if circumstances were different perhaps they would not feel the need to be hateful and hurtful or even worst to others. It is so sad. I was taught to respect one another and if you don't have something nice to say then don't say it.

    In my opinion it has all gone too far with the bullying, hate and judging others. I wish there was no hate, no violence, no wars... no person hurting. Our time here is short. We need to make the best of it - love not hate... have compassion; have empathy.
