Why does someone bully?

Most bullies have a hard time understanding or being sensitive to another person's feelings.

The bully may:
  • Feel powerful by bullying others;
  • Feel bad about themselves and bullying makes them feel smarter, stronger, or more popular;
  • May have been bullied themselves
  • Blame the victim by saying the person is annoying, different, or deserving of being bullied.

There are no good excuses for bullying. NO one deserves to be bulled no matter how different they may be.
