Life was a bugger I got bullied at school and at home
So at school I didn't want to be there and I didn't want to go home either.
School was the least of two evils.
In my head at least I knew I would never be like them
My mother and my brothers..linking at my mother what gave mW a lot of strength and power was I thought 'I WILL NEVER EVER BE LIKE YOU!!!
that gave me some kind of goal to strive for
I think if I lowered myself to her standard I would be dead by now
No I rose above it

Bullies are opportunists and without a doubt will prey on those who they think will show the least resistance. By this logic the best method do deal with bullies is to punch them in the face.
Violence solves nothing eh? Well you are wrong....

What if you cant do that Ramson? Then try to feel sorry for yourself and hope that empathy will save you, the victim. Good luck with your endurance and keeping your shit together whilst taking daily abuse.
I still say punch them in the face...

in my younger days I slipped sometimes
into fighting back
but if its a long term thing going on
I found I had to stop fighting back
in order to rise out of the situation

because if its investigated by social workers
they expect you to be accountable for your side of the fights
and they cant always tell ' who started it '
if you are regularly fighting someone

it depends

like if someone is attacked in the street
by a total stranger
then it might be a good idea to fight back

again it depends
I was pursued in the next city once
by someone dead creepy , well two different occasions actually
and my instinct with those people
was to chat to them until I reached a bus or a safe place
where I could lose them
