On line bullying is growing simply because these people can operate from behind a computer screen. Here are some words of comfort if you have been affected

Online Bullying

Bullying has been around forever, usually amongst children, where the weakest, or anyone different would be subjected to physical or verbal abuse through no fault of their own. But since the introduction of the internet, a new type of bullying takes place from behind the screen, not just amongst children , but adults also.

Bullies are very jealous people, and they pick on others who are happy because of their own self loathing, and doing it from behind a computer screen, they feel, gives them licence to be as cruel and spiteful as they want to, after all if they are not happy, then why should you be.?

Facebook and Twitter

Now we have social media sites like facebook and twitter, unfortunately they also attract bullying trolls. These people are just as sick as hackers, they are trying to ruin your life, but don't let t them.

If you log on to twitter, or facebook to chat to an online friend, then find they have blocked you for no reason, so you can never speak to them again, it's only natural to feel upset. If you are popular, the bully can't bear it, and they will do their utmost to vilify you to anyone who will listen. They don't approach your friends because they know you, and won't listen. They approach online friends you have never met, and then they bully them by saying that no-one likes you, and there fore they shouldn't either.

The Result

Online bullies can be extremely intimidating, and even though their victim may not believe you are bad, they are too scared to keep contact with you, and they want a quiet life, so it appears that the bully has won.

But believe me they have not won. Do not be upset if this happens to you, jealousy is a very destructive emotion, and that bully is jealous of you, so that means you have done something successful, which they wish they could. They can spend their useless lives being jealous of you and stirring up trouble, because that is the only thing they are good at.

Just hold up your head and be proud, you have done nothing wrong, it's all in their head. Your friends will stand by you because they know you, and the people that they have lied to are not worth knowing anyway because they don't have a mind of their own.

I have been told by other people sometimes, horrific stories about how "bad" someone is, and how I should have nothing to do with them. I never take any notice, I choose my own friends on how people are to me because I have a mind of my own. Then I find out after it is the person spreading the bad stories that has the problem, and the problem is called jealousy.

If it's happened to you, don't let the bullies win, just carry on being the person you are, and eventually people will realise you are a decent person. The bullies will get their just desserts in the end, they ruin so many lives, even cause some people to commit suicide, so don't listen to the bullies, let them crawl back under the stone they came from.

Bless you dear Carol for this post .
Bullying is despicable , and as seen , is usually done by a gang against one victim .
Bullies really are very unhappy people ...but , payday comes even for them , and they don't like it when the boot is on the other foot .
I agree with all you have written , and would even say to those who are being bullied ...Don't suffer in silence , but talk to someone who can help them through the situation.
God bless you today and always
Stella ><

Thank you Stella, I am hoping this article will encourage others to speak out, as I know bullying causes a lot of unhappiness. Some people are even pushed to commit suicide! I hope you are keeping well, and thanks for reading. xx

Here here Carol you have addressed a major issue in this most factual and encouraging presentation.
As does Stella, I totally agree with all you have written.
Speaking out and exposing bullies is the first step in standing up to these cowards.
It's great to see you back again Carol xx

Thanks Mariah, I didn't go away, just not had time to write articles lately. I am here for the platform it gives me, not for money, so the fact that we don't get paid does not matter at all to me. I hope you are keeping well, and I intend to visit both yours and Stella's pages. xx

Been a victim of bullying and truth be told the bully destroyed three devices of mine hacking via the IP address and breaking the root directories on my PCs, hurt me on Facebook and to the extent that the cops were called in, destroyed my mobile numbers and the whole thing is under police investigation and don't ask what not, even my bank accounts were attempted.
I know what bullying is and have been there and will never let anybody go through it ever.
The truth is what you think of bullying isn't totally it but as they affect your lives and family lives that is it. I never shouted at LoverME and SINwriter without cause but I have been there with those Dynamic Duo and learnt pain as the Satanist LoverME used spells to hurt my family as with SINwriter who was abusive towards ME. I just write poetry and never break peoples' lives these two villains break lives and in reality as well. I am in seclusion and hiding because of things done and just know my way around for my daily living.

It's ok Lily, I am sorry for both of you, and whatever is troubling you both, I know nothing of. This article was written because someone I care a lot about has been bullied very badly, as I also have been, and I just wanted her to know I am there for her., and when the bullies read this, they will also know that I know what they have been up to. By the way it's no-one on Wikinut, all my friends on her are great and supportive.
