"Why do people bully?"
Pulling someone down will never help you reach the top. Why do people bully? Is it because they want to be cool? Is it because they think they are all that? Bully is to use a superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone) typically to force him/her to do what one wants. Bully can also be a use of force to threat and abuse someone. If you condone bullying in any way, shape or form, you are taking part or contributing in it . Bullying is everyone\'s responsibility and the option of doing nothing is unacceptable in civilized society. Some people may consider mocking someone funny, even though it is anything but funny to the victim. Small jabs taken every day can add up to a lot of pain and suffering. While it may seem innocent to the person taking the shots, the cumulative effect of these daily jabs could be devastating. In addition to that, as the pain increases, each jab cuts a little deeper.
Contributing to bully will not solve the problem it will only make it worse. Those who keep on adding wood to the fire are contributing to let the fire burn even more. We got to be careful with not only our words but with also what we do, because whatever is done it can only be forgiven not forgotten. Abraham Lincoln once said, "I would rather be a little nobody, then to be an evil somebody.
Why bully is everyone\'s responsibility? Bully can be everyone\'s responsibility because everyone has control over everything. We can control our thoughts and we can choose a way to respond to them. Responsibility is accepting that you are the cause and the solution to the matter. We cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. I believe we are responsible for our choices and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.

Pain and suffering can be caused by bully. What most people need to learn in life is how to love people, instead of using people. Bully can mark a scar on a heart that is very hard to heal. The pain can take ages to recover, and you will be suffering until this pain heals. The pain and suffering that are dealing with others is because haters don\'t really have their own life actually. Why, because they are so focused to live in yours.
It is so hard trying to be yourself when everyone judges you. Judging and picking on people defines the type of person you are. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made victim. Accept no one\'s definition of your life but define yourself. Nobody has the right to define yourself because your opinion is the only one that matters. Treat others the way you want to be treated. That is golden rule.
