No. No one deserves to be bullied. Even bullies don't deserve to be bullied. The only way all of Earth's humans can begin to find less hatred is if they show others more love. Letting go of anger and turning it into compassion can be a very powerful thing.

NO ONE and I mean NO. ONE. Deserves to be bullied. Bullying is someone projecting their own insecurities on someone. It has nothing to do with you I promise. Just ignoring it and realizing that they are the ones hurting is best. Continue to be the strong and smart person you are and realize there's a lot of hurt in the world, but being that positive light in the world means everything and can help others too!

When you are bullied, it is easy to give your power away and feel helpless. Hold your head up and stand tall. Remember that you have the right to be respected for who you are. Targets of repeated bullying sometimes believe that the putdowns and insults they receive are actually true. Don’t! It may be hard to change the way that otherstreat you, but you do have control of what you think about yourself.

No, you certainly don't! Bullying is the worst form of criticism - the unproductive and malicious kind! Instead of telling someone what they could do better, they're told what's wrong with them, with an emphasis that that's just /who they are/ and that it can't be changed. Bullying is never acceptable, and no one deserves to be bullied.

No one does! No matter what they've done in their past. It's important to know that you don't deserve anyone's disrespect, even from yourself. There's just no reason!

Simply put: No. Nobody deserves to be abused by other people just for being themselves.

No-one deserves to be bullied! Bullying is a form harassment and should not be tolerated by anyone. It is often said that people become bullies due to feelings of low self-esteem or feelings of isolation. They are the person with the problem, and bullying is their way of projecting their negative self views upon other people. It is a way of releasing negative energy. Remember that you, the bully victim(s), are bigger, better people and should not allow this behaviour to have a lasting impact on you. Rise above them for you deserve so much better and are worth a lot more than some damaged soul.

No!! No one deserves to be bullied at all. That isn't right at all. Everyone should get treated nicely.

You don't deserve to be bullied because you always are unique in your own way by being friendly, supportive to others and making others day go smoothly.

No one deserves to be bullied. Everyone is equal within society. And no body should want to put somebody down to “make themselves feel better”

No-one deserves to be bullied. You deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Everyone does. If you are being bullied, you do not deserve it and seeking help is the first step to overcome this. Talk to someone you trust - if you feel you cannot tell your parents or other adults, talk to a trusted friend, sibling, or anyone else you know will help you. I promise you that bullying is not your fault and that you will never deserve to be treated badly. Even if you think badly about yourself or you believe the bully is justified in how they treat you, I can guarantee you that you are never at fault for being bullied.

No you don't.. No one deserves to be bullied. You deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. I would make get the authorities involved if you could.. Also if you're in school you could make a complaint with the school counselor if you were bullied.. Let your teachers know about it will also help. Sometimes bullies are people who have been bullied by other individuals and they tend to reflect that ugly behavioral issues onto other beautiful people. Kind souls are not usually that way. Hateful people always tend to want to put others down in life and give them misery and suck the rejoicements out of them because of mere envy. It's why some people become filled with jealousy. They have no other options but to make sure that they try to problemize another individual so they could seem like they are sain. So sometimes being isolated helps people to understand you were bullied and it gives off red flags to people who are aware.

This question has a very simple answer: no. Absolutely not. It is so hard when you are being bullied to blame yourself and to wonder if it is your fault. If you did something to cause it. If you deserve it. However, it is not your fault. No one deserves to be bullied irrespective of who they are and what they have done. Being bullied says nothing about you or your character. However, bullying someone does say a great deal about a person and their character. Try to remember that one of the most common reasons people bully others is their own insecurity and jealousy.
