Innocent Bullies

There are bullies who don't know that they're bullies.

They don't realize that they have more resources, that they have more power, that they have more resources, more options, more prestige. They don't know the effect they have on people around them. They just don't understand.

The advice we often give for handling bullies is to punch them in the nose. Punch a bully once and they'll leave you alone. But that doesn't work for these bullies. They have no idea why they're getting punched.

They may not have given you a second thought. They may not even know you exist. They may not have meant to do the harm they did. But that innocence doesn't remove the damage they do.

I'm not sure what to do with these kinds of bullies.

But I know I don't want to be one of them.

Maybe that's an okay place to start.
