Bulllying


I woke up this morning and wished I had this view.
 
For some reason, I was thinking about an this guy from my high school. We were not friends. He was just someone in my graduating class. What I distinctly remember about him was how he would get bullied so much. He was a lanky glasses wearing kid, of Chinese descent. He didn't seem to fit in. One time he was getting bullied and I felt so bad, unfortunately, being a nerd myself there was little I could do to end his torment. Later on in the school year, I remember, we were in some class together, and the bullies were busy making fun of someone else, this kid, Matthew was his name, he joined in! I was outraged! He of all people should have understood how awful it was to be bullied. At that moment I lost all sympathy for the razing he got.
 
Even today I can't understand people like that, for example the person who is on medicare but doesn't want others to have it, the person who cashs an unemployment check but than votes so others don't get it, or my favorite (clarence thomas) the one who uses affirmative action to get to the highest court of the land than wants to kick the ladder away.
 
How were these people raised? To not feel empathy for their fellow man? and if that is the way they are, why do they expect me to feel compassion for them???

It's 'I got mine - screw you', or for the bullied he's happy that he is not the one being picked on. Sorry, yes, no sympathy for them from me either.

Identification with the aggressor. Actually a common psychological defense. It's why some abused children grow up to be abusers. I do feel sorry for him - he needed someone to intervene and support him to head that off. Schools often do a lousy job of preventing bullying.

Снова одна проблема послеразводного бытия – неспособность структурировать свою жизнь. Коль брачный статус требует от человека "после работы сразу домой, а там стряпать ужин/вешать белье/выносить негодное, а в выходные путешествовать в наследственный промышленный суть разве к теще для блины" – то затем развода человек, которому в принципе нужен в жизни известный "внешний структуратор", совершенно теряется: а что теперь делать? Ради чего зарабатывать аржаны, зачем готовить пир и к кому грясти на блины?.. Неумение структурировать свою жизнь, наполнять ее делами и распределять эти дела особенно остро ощущается после развода: вроде и затем любого серьезного изменения социального модуса, кто влечет изза собой столь же резкое перемена привычного графика.

Hi, I think your blog might be having browser
compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other
then that, very good blog!

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken
and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
share it with someone!

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question
which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!

Hi! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed
to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring
blog owners. Thankyou!
