Bullies act to assert some dominance over others because it makes them feel better about themselves and their choices. They bully you to improve their self-esteem by suggesting they are better than you. Of course, someone who is bullying you is not better than you. They are probably insecure, and it's unfortunate they haven't discovered another way to comfort themselves.
Bullyng has a lot of reasons. But the most common one isn't about you, but about them. They need to feel important, to feel like they are in control and are better than everyone else, so they choose to treat a person like nothing. Bullies are the weak, and the bullied are the strong ones.
Bullying is often an expression of the bully's self confidence, or lack there of.

Because they are weak and they see you as an easy target. They use you to make themselves feel better and its wrong but they don't realize it and the worst part is, is that they won't they are a bully until they finally stop being one. So they spend their days harassing others to lift up their own spirits. Which truly they probably have many insecurities and this is what they do to cope with them. No matter how wrong it is they believe it is ok and nothing is wrong with a little teasing. And anyone tears shed by the bullied is, in their mind, just plain over dramatic. So this gives them more and more leverage over someone and no one sees a way to end it because they have built up this wall of defense. And this wall of defense just keeps on shooting down anyone in sight. Breaking them down into pieces and destroying who they are. So when they bully you, its not because of anything you are doing wrong. Its actually the complete opposite. They see you as more than them and they can not handle this. So they must shoot you down before you shoot them down.

Instead they want to bully the person individually because it makes them feel better and stronger due to them trying to hid what they actually feel.
They can bully you for many different cause like thinking your more approachable and other aspects too.
