[QUOTE]Originally posted by NaturalResources: [QB] Bdgee, [QUOTE] "And then there are the issues that escape being lumped in the category of "bullying" but actually amount to the same thing, like never being allowed to play in the recess soft ball game or always being the butt of jokes because your clothes are hand me downs or whatever else kids will do to make themselves look good at the expense of others (and too often their parents and teachers approve of). Those cause phychological alterations too."[/QUOTE]Thank you for mentioning that. IMO these types of things are an integral part of being "bullied" that I neglected to make clear in my original post. Being bullied for me was hardly ever being physically abused by classmates, though that did happen from time to time. ----- Ramius, [QUOTE]But you're right, people handle things differently, some people just aren't strong enough, or don't have a support system.[/QUOTE]I was trying to get that point across, but I think you phrased it in a much better way than I did. I was fortunate enough to a "support system" to help me through the rough times. They are many who do not. IMO, those who do, become stronger individuals. Those who do not are more likely to fold under pressure. Sometimes, one person can be that "support system" for someone who has no one, which can make a world of difference, which is why I felt I needed to post my thoughts on this issue. ----- Jordan, You were lucky to have an older brother. Me? I was the older brother.... [/QB][/QUOTE]
