Bullying is one topic that always triggers something in me, I’m not exactly sure why, as I wasn’t bullied as a kid, but then if we all wait to get triggered by things we only went through, what will then be the point of humanity?
In most cases when we talk about bullying, we immediately think of primary and high school, but the truth is anyone can be bullied, in school, at work, homes, even places of worship.
The moment you look down and act against an inferior person, whether in height, weight, status or anyone that’s defenseless, you have bullied the person, you have given them a reason to hate the position they are, thereby hating themselves, you have given one of God’s creation a reason to question Him, and He never forgets.
One of the worse atrocities you can commit against Him is to make your fellow human look up to Him in question, asking why some get to be super while others are defenseless, why some get to have and others don’t and why some get to bully while others fret for their lives.
As for children and high school students who are being bullied, more than half of students lives are spent at school, imagine being scared to walk into a place you spend more than half of your teenage life, and in most cases, it’s both physical and psychological.
No one deserves that kind of trauma, no one. If there’s anyone you know that’s being bullied, make a report, call out the bully.
If you are being bullied, seek help, know no-one is superior to you, fight for yourself if no one else would, you don’t deserve to be picked on.
If you have a friend that bullies others and you keep mum, remember Leonardo Da Vinci said “He who does not oppose evil, commands it to be done”.
And if you are the bully! If your peace of mind comes from harming others, if your happiness comes from putting them down, if you feel better by making others feel worse, I have some news for you, someday soon, you will harm the one whose cries has direct access to God’s ears and from that instance, you’d have lost all your chances to do better, and will only then get the reward that comes to those who spend all their nights and days wondering how and when they went wrong with God.
No one deserves to go to bed wondering what the point of waking up the next day is.
