Bottom Line: To disarm a bully, you have to understand what bullying is. Bullying is an imbalance of power. It’s one person (the bully) hurting the feelings of another (the victim). End result – bully feels like a winner and the victim feels like a loser. What is the solution? Empower the victim. If you are the victim, you can empower yourself and disarm a bully by: Number One – Don’t get upset! Even if they insult your race, your looks, your mom…don’t get upset. Second Thing – Be friendly to your bully! No matter what, respond with kindness. You can even tell them, “I’m going to be happy today, even if you hate me.”
