I was bullied. No room in my life for hate and resentment anymore. I've been through A LOT of stuff. Horrible things. And I don't have any anger left for them anymore. Why would you allow someone that much control over your life? If you are still angry with a bully after, years, you are allowing that person to control you. Time to breath, and let go. Move on. Learn to love.
I used to be bullied and I don't like them. I can never be friends with them. (Sometimes they've tried real hard.) But I don't feel angry anymore even though I feel I should be angry and punch each of them on the face.
The kid who terrified me in my early elementary school years is now one of my Facebook friends. And this is after he and I had a "come to Jesus" talk after he picked on a special needs kid in my class. And the first-chair-flute-head-cheerleader from high school now wears stretch pants and drives a clunker. What goes around, comes around. Life is just way too short to drag around hurtful memories. Let go of the stone.
I realize now my bully had been abused by his father and forgive his behavior a little bit when I realize, psychologically, he was acting the way his father did to him. I do not condone his actions but rather condemn them as the acts of an oppressed, abused spirit lashing out at the light in my eyes. I blame him no more than I blame the lay muslim for succumbing to terrorism.

I've never been bullied, but if you have, don't be angry about it! Because if you show the bullies that you are angry, they'll just keep on continuing to bully you. They only bully you because they want to make you upset, so don't be upset, and they'll stop bullying you. My adult friend said to me if people say to you, for example "You have a big nose!" reply back "Thanks! I like big noses." and they'll stop bullying you if you say this to them. You should not care what others think about you. Don't change for people. Be who you are, because people will not like you if you're not yourself.
let it go...give it to GOD in prayer and give it many times..til you feel the peace... ITS given the first time but as humans we need to ask again because of our weaknesses... let it go, you can't change the bully...but you can change how you feel about the bully...to peace within you..let it go, yes its hard...prayer is very easy..let it go to the one who can heal you. I've not been bullied.. but I have been abused neglected and abandoned at 11 yrs old and I hurt for 40 plus years and someone told me that I'm telling you... HE gives us peace and makes our hearts joyful... and HE deals with those who hurt others.... let it go.... peace :)
In spite of my strong personality, I was bullied mercilessly in high school. I never let them see me sweat though, and I have that satisfaction. I have never been a bully, and never tolerated against anyone else. Today I have the perspective on those people to know they will have to learn the hard way that what you send into the lives of others, comes right back into your own life. I still feel the pain, but I don't hate them, hatred interferes with our vision of the world.
