I never thought about that myself! I need to ask myself that question all the time!

I was bullied in art class,I didn't confront them,I remained calm and I kept silent and I didn't give them a reaction of being hurt or upset which is probably what they would have wanted and enjoyed.I won't be going back to that class either and because the tutor joined in with the bullies in picking on me I wrote a message of complaint to her boss.Sometimes we have to be the bigger person and not give them the satisfaction of being upset.If they can see that they can't bring you down or impede your progress then they learn their efforts are to no avail.After all they are doing it to impede our progress because they are jealous.I was not enjoying the art class anyway as it was art craft and not drawing and painting which I like more.

I agree that not reacting and remaining calm is best things with bullies who mentally bully me or emotionally. That is usually what people are doing these days if they are trying to harass people is to use intimidation. They get nothing if you do not react unless they threaten your safety. That is a different situation

Usually i just ignore them because i really do not care about other peoples opinions or thoughts of me. They really are not that important to bother me. I am busy trying to live my life and do not have time for people who are rude.
