I remember instances in my past where I have been bullied. Many times it happens when you did nothing to provoke it. You are left wondering what is wrong with you. Why would someone want to lash out at you? What did you do? Most of the the the answer is nothing.

There is the great chance that you didn’t do anything wrong. You just were in the wrong place at the wrong time. You found yourself around people you thought you could trust, but violated you instead. It hurt and you were wronged, and now you feel like the bad guy.

I read the story of the student in New Jersey the other day. It broke my heart. He was violated in the worst way and couldn’t recover. What was done to him is horrible. His family is in my prayers.

I have been working on this post for half an hour. I have no more words. I don’t understand the need to put someone else down to make yourself feel good.
