The only person who has control over your emotions is you. Not letting anyone's word effect you can be difficult but it can be achieve. You have to be patient and not react to them, the more you react, the more you're vulnerable to them.
They prey on my weaknesses, on the areas where I am already lacking self-confidence and make me feel worse about myself.
They know what bothers you. They know how to get under your skin and hit your buttons. As for your emotions, you control those. The only way to beat a bully is to be mentally stronger than the bully. Tell yourself that it does not bother you. if it gets too much to handle, report it. you dont deserve to be treated badly.
It's what they do and say and it can be really hurtful in which in most cases makes us sad, angry ect you do on the otherhand have power to get through it and stay strong with whatever there doing
First off, my friend, bullies have no control over you or your emotions. What happens, is they can say something that can hit close to home in a sensitive subject, and if you dwell on that it can negatively affect your emotions. But what you can control and not let the bullies have power over, is how you react. If they get some sort of negative reaction out of you they will keep doing it because it's what they like to see. I hope this helped. :) Have an awesome day.
Bullies have absolutely no over your emotions. Bullies want you to believe they're in control of how you should think, act, or feel about yourself when in actuality they're the ones who are scared of being their true self. Think about it this way, every person who has ever bullied you has been in some way hurt by someone else. Behind every bully is story. Be honest with yourself and when you're walking past these so-called "bullies" look them straight in their eyes, do not look down. After repeating this simple step a few times, you'll be surprise to learn how much power you have within yourself. Bullies can't stand confidence and will eventually fade when they sense you have this quality. Confidence is key.
Bullies are trying to bring you down but they don't have power over your emotions, because the only person who can is you, stand up for yourself, believe in yourself
Well that comes down to your age. At this point in time, you must feel very vulnerable. I find that you must also be a more caring person is other peoples opinions matter to you. You are caring, not careless. But as you go through life, you will find that you don't have time for bullies, and that the most important opinion you need is your own opinion.
They do not.You are the master of yourself.They sort of "feed" in your reaction and fear,so ignore them and you will be fine.
Because you let them(: The minute you are strong and confident and don't back down to their advances, they realize you aren't one to mess with
They really have as much power as you let them have. You can ignore them or even report them to someone you trust. Of course there are times that we cant really escape by the things they might say, but remember to never give up to matter what happens
Because they represent a force in your life that is chaotic. The say terrible things and try to make you feel inferior. Since bullies are common in middle to high school where kids are figuring themselves out, you're usually in a vulnerable state which gives them that power. It takes realization and a bit of confidence in yourself to make them loose that power.
Bullies have power of your emotions probably because they know your weaknesses. They try to strike in places you'll least think it'll come and surprise you. Considering your past or present it could affect you from memories.
Its because I let them. Because all my life I let everyone push me around, set out my path for me and destroyed my free will.
Because people out their don't know the power of "words" coming from their mouth, they are type of bullets that just cut you through what they should know that they can make difference by speaking good words to the people they bully like seriously what they ever done to you man you have to stand in front of God one day just be kind untill you are here in this world. it takes zero effort to be kind!
It is often because they represent the worst thoughts you have in your head, so it feels like a confirmation coming from someone else.
