Something doesn't add up because if you smack the guy talking shit to you , they usually stop , also you could befriend them afterwards instead of keeping this resentment.
Also i did not get bullied not because im a tough guy (though i am) , or because anyone was scared of me , but because Schools in South America are very different than first world countries except for Australia.
You see , you go to the same classroom everyday for 9 or 12 years , and the group is always passed together granted they all approve , so by the time you're in your teens , you basically grew up together with the other kids.
There's shit talk and fuckery but at the end of the day we're all kinda of like one big family , leaves little to no room for ill intentioned bully.
I've always stood up for the ones who cant , whenever someone from another classroom would beat up someone from another classroom in a real tough fight i'd step in , or if he fucked with him afterwards i'd roast him in front of everybody.
Always helped the elder and the blind in my community and shit.
The big difference is that i genuinely want to help them , whereas you just want power and feel like they owe you , you see , it'd never even cross my mind to use the government power to punish the people who are malicious in my world view , that's where we split.
