Anyone ever been bullied by anyone? As an Islander bullying is part and parcel of our physical culture. As you grow up the boys older than you in the extended family order you around and sometimes cross the line by making you do things that are just slave driver styles. When I first went on the streets I got bullied by this guy who was TOUGH as. When he got drunk he was a real violent bugger. We were all scared of him back then. My first teaching job I was bullied for two years by my principal. On my last day at that school I screamed at her for tem minutes no stop about all my greivances over the 2 and a half years that I was under her. Right in front of ALL the taff at our end of term morning tea. No one stopped me cause they could see all my hurt come out....when I finished she was shaking and white as a leaf.....as merciful as I can be this was one time when I thought "she deserved that." Bullying comes in all sorts of forms and from sources we least expect. My ex wife used to and still tries (sometimes even now she succeeds) to bully me when she can. your thoughts?
