How a Bully Saved my Life

I used to be a pretty nerdy kid back in high school. I was into playing video games and not sports, not working out, dressing poorly and being awkward and shy around girls. Being hopeless like this of course a bully took notice of me and began to harass me. He would call me names and shove me down and push me around. It was like torture. Anyway I got tired of his crap so I started working out, flirting with girls, getting into sports, and improving the quality of my life a ton. I began to finally live life and if not for that bully I would still probably a skinny nerd playing video games all day. I am glad that bully entered my life. I know bullies get a lot of hate in the media when they say "oh they are killing our children" when bullies are just a normal part of life and growing up and facing adversity. So I just wanted to put a positive spin on bullying and how it builds character and toughness.

  • The amount of negativity is ridiculous. Is it so hard just to congratulate the OP and leave the thread? why does there always have to be some dumb debate? OT: Good for you OP! And I totally agree with you on the whole working out thing. I worked out for 2 years and felt great those years, been meaning to get back into it.

  • Because your situation and type of personality spans everyone else, right? No. Sounds to me like you have classic stockholm syndrome, You're defending your bully. He may have helped YOU, but that does not or ever will JUSTIFY his bullying. With your logic, all victims of bullying should accept what is happening to them and improve on what the bully harasses them about instead of stopping the bully by knocking them the -blam!- out and taking a stand or getting a parent/teacher involved. It's no surprise that most bullies tend to be sociopathic. We shouldn't encourage sociopaths like you're suggesting. Your bully 'saved your life' in the same way God apparently saves our souls through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ from the hell he created in the first place. [Edited on 12.06.2012 4:13 PM PST]

Where in this thread have I insulted anyone? meanwhile Ive been insulted many times. Where am I bragging about my "epeen". This argument started when someone posted a video where an Unarmed kid got hit over the head with a bat. I was arguing why that was bad. I just dont understand why you are so frustrated. What did I do that was so bad?
