I work with youth and young adults to help them improve depressive symptoms and self-esteem as well as effectively address family, relationship and peer conflicts.

Some people don't know how to handle truth and aren't able to handle a person who will stand up for their beliefs.
People always see the victims of bullying as weak people, which is most definitely not the case. By showing a strong character, people assume you are never in the vulnerable position, which again is not true as bullying can happen to anybody.
It's a stereotype. Generally, larger people (height, build, etc.) get pegged as the agitators, when really it can be anyone causing problems.
Because people seem to associate strength with the qualities of a bully due to all of those movies and such that seem to depict a bully as strong or overly so.
Instinctually, people judge on appearances as a means of survival and as bullies have stereotypical characteristics of being mean as well as 'strong', people automatically may assume this without you being a bully. I wouldn't let it get into your head if you're not one and prove them wrong and show you're one of the good guys! (:
I don't know but I think you can go to another listener and ask them this question, I am sorry if I did not help you
Bully's often happen to be big and strong. It could happen that people automatically associate strong with bullying because of past experiences they had with bullies that were actually strong.
