A Message From Ryan
I get so many messages from people who are driven to the edge, as a result of all kinds of bullies, many at the hands of theses nasty people, as a result some are made to feel suicidal, most who are ordinary good living folk just like you and I, who,for one reason or other are not able single handedly stop bullies getting to them. I then ask for a contact number, call them back and listen with Empathy and a real ear to their concerns, endeavouring all the while to put them at their ease. I respond to everyone who messages me looking for advice, and with a one 2 one call with them in complete confidence, for as long as it takes without judging them. After I initially ask about themselves to get a picture in my minds eye of their character, I then ask what they are experiencing at the hands of such cruel members of our society, let me add that thank the great lord bullies are in a minority.
You wont be surprised to learn, many stories I hear are so similar, think about it bullies are weaker than you, why? Well apart from picking on what they consider as an easy target, and that does not mean one is inadequate or less of a person than they are, bullies, quite clearly are not happy with their own lives,so perhaps in some cases they too may need counselling, certainly the unacceptable behaviour must be stopped in their tracks, at the very first sign of abuse, but as I hear its not always easy to do by yourself. There are many reasons why many of us are picked on in life, bullies always go for who they think are the weakest, as I said in many cases, in their tainted opinion, they are lazy and sometimes very jealous people with, perhaps your success, or your good behaviour, might be your good looks, or what ever there cruel agenda is, bullies are as I said lazy and don't like to see anyone getting on in this challenging world in which we live.
The only way to beat bullies is to make a stand, TELL SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST! Talk! That will be your first step to resolving the abuse. Then try and Make a complete success of your life,that may just be to show them your are content with your lot in life,and,will always work to better yourself. To react or give in to bullies is to give your power away, what you must do with your trusted friend is report them to the police, take that friend with you, you must, at the first sign of abuse separate yourself from the situation in the knowledge you now have your trusted friend as back up, simply walk away. To confront them with verbal abuse is only condoning there behaviour as acceptable, and will only exacerbate the abuse further, remember Your not defined by other people's behaviour, you can't legislate for stupidity, respect is earned,honesty is appreciated,Trust is Gained,and loyalty is returned,report them every time, no matter how many times in one day.the police will soon tire and have them on a banning order I am always here to talk.
