I'm proud of you for strangling the kid that came after you, i didn't fight back when i was Bullied so I whenever i hear about someone who fought back i feel happy and proud because i could never do something like that
I mean eh, I was kind of a feral child, which was good because I didn’t tolerate shit from anyone, but I was sort of…dangerous?
I mean the girl and her posse came over to tell the girl I was playing with to ‘stop playing with her ‘cause she’s weird.’
And I wasn’t so great with my words and was also pissed as hell so I got up, picked her up, and straight up strangled her, the bell rang so I’m not exactly sure what I would have done after that. I then spent all day shaking in me boots wondering when I would be called to the principles office for strangling someone
but she wasn’t a snitch and I wasn’t significantly bothered by any of the kids again, either because they had heard, or because again, I looked like a didn’t know what a hairbrush was and was raised like a free range chicken with the door open (I was)
I dunno, I’m not sure if I should condone violence, it worked for me but I had a lot of resolve and feral child instinct rather then like ‘a plan’ or ‘fear for my own safety,’ probably talking to an authority figure is better? I dunno, I don’t really know the proper ways to approach bullying
people are always going to be pretty terrible so I do recommend standing up for yourself on a regular basis, but be careful, you are important and ugly people will pass (however slowly) and your safety comes first
