I am torn between praying for compassion for and tearing the ass of bullies. Maybe I could do both.
IT GETS BETTER kids. It both breaks my heart and enrages me. 3 kids this month have chosen to end their lives rather than face the certain cruelty that is adolescence. I have never once in my life idly tolerated bullying, but I am lucky. My opinion of myself and what is right has always surpassed my own fear of safety. I cannot be everywhere at all times, but here you go bullies: I AM SOMEWHERE, LOOKING FOR YOU, AND WILLING TO STOP AT NOTHING to protect others from your victimhood. Don’t act surprised, you have been warned.
Even though this was written on behalf of younger kids who were disappearing before our eyes, I realize that bullies do not stop at graduation. Some bullies grow up to be hate-filled, pathetic loser adults, mainly because their bullying has gone unchecked by the time they pass their teen years. These are the ones that boil my blood the most. You ought to know better. And that you don’t just makes me more resolute to teach you a very adult lesson. I’m embarrassed for you, that you lack the sense and common decency to neglect treating others with respect and I feel it my Buddhistic responsibility and my Dharmic duty to compassionately revoke your opportunity to behave in such a manner. No one has done you any favors by neglecting to set you straight, quite the opposite. So what your parents, teachers and any real friend have failed to do, I shall carry out with the utmost compassionate goal to set straight. Oh, I know, you won’t like it, but it’s for your own good. Your behavior is an eddy of karmic destruction and the fact that no one thus far has discouraged it, means everyone in your life has failed you miserably. I won’t do that to you. I won’t look the other way as you harass and bully people to avert dealing with your own misguided attempts to feel good about yourself. I do care about you, daresay more than anyone else. I will hold you responsible and I will show you the error of your ways in an attempt to assist you in successfully dealing with the karmic disaster you create with your hatefulness. So remember, what I do, I do for you. Now brace yourself, because I’m coming after you. I’m here to help, like the doctor you try to kick away who simply wants to stitch up your gushing wound that you use to insist on forcing your tainted blood on everyone to enjoin them in your misery. Ready? Here we go.
