Looking the bully in the eye sometimes is not easy for me.
It's just a shame others - Even the people who are suppose to love you, and you love them - have to litreally *force* you into a position where you have no choice but to fight for your most basic human rights sometimes - With your fists, words, or your head. Anytime I do stand up for myself, it always seems to feel like a Pyrrhic victory. The alternative to not speaking out however is being victimized again. Nature is truly scary.
This is why I wish I could afford my own private island so I can hide from everyone.
