Why do people bully others? It boils down to jealousy and fear. People can cause rivalry when they are envious someone has something they don't. People are always afraid or suspicious of things they don't understand, and so it is easy for them to seek to humiliate or destroy it.
When you find yourself in this difficult situation of being bullied, Ladies, never loose the pretty. Go where there are people who don't have a horse in the race, because within that group of people there will be one with a good conscious, and they will step up and support you. Believe me when I say someone is always watching and listening and if you are being judge unfairly they will find a way to help you. Why? Because they are made that way.
Please, don't seek revenge, let it be. Life will dish out the punishment. First punishment is the mean people get to spend their precious time with the people who are just like them. You will be dancing away doing your own things - things you enjoy!
I wish I could tell you once the bullsh-- is over, it is over, but in your life time you will stumble upon another Fool who mistaken your fairness for stupidity. You will recognize them quicker. Their attitude will be - you are different from me and I don't like it. They could also have the child mentality - me see, me want, me take.
When you are being judged unfairly, seriously who cares. The people who are saying the crap are the people usually outside of your inner circle - strangers. And what do they know? The people who love and care for you if you tell them what you are dealing with which is probably no fault of your own, except you were doing the things you like; listening to the music that inspires you; wearing the clothes that make you comfortable or express your individuality; dyed your hair your most favorite color; those people love you and will help you find a solution.
When you find yourself being bullied, and it will happen, you will be just a little wiser than you were the last time. Forget the Haters. Dance to your own tune. You will catch the eye of another dancer dancing their way through life, and if you don't twirl in too quick, you will make a friend. For real...You will ;-)
