Most people don't like bullies.
I don't like 'em. I saw some terrible bullies in high school
But starting to wonder if in fact it's about defining an ability of a person to survive.
I didn't bully anyone in high school, but sometimes I got bullied, sometimes I fought back.
Sometimes I won.
So maybe what bullying or the reaction to it does is help define a person, get to know their limits, know what they can fight back against.
