Words Of (Dubious) Wisdom

A smile can disarm the hurtful
and a tear disarm the weak
a laugh can disarm the bully
but he may punch you in the cheek.

  1. Seems one’s smile ends when the bully’s begins.

  2. Yeah, like the freedom of speech ends at the end of someone’s arm length.

  3. Don’t even get me going on the topic of bullying…

  4. It really is incredible, that in reality, the bully is one who is most in need of help. A deep rooted inferiority complex (the origin of which is most likely a dysfunctional home-life) is usually at its core. But that is just my non-professional opinion. As always, thanks for the ‘like’ and the comment Audrey.

  5. I know how you feel. There are so many people with “disorders” whom the liberal establishment and the lawyers will attempt to portray as victims as well. But I agree that it is very difficult to be sympathetic when you, or a loved one are on the receiving end of their “disorder”.
