    I'd like to apologize to people I've bullied instead. Every once in awhile, I remember new things too. I know for sure it affected some deeply. It must have. The latest thing I remember wasn't totally my fault, but I remember me and a friend chased this kid on a slope, and he fell.. broke his arm. I remember him screaming in pain. It was my friend that knocked him off balance, but I feel horrible about it anyways. I totally washed this out of my head until the other day. To grow up like that fucking sucks (I mean, this wasn't really an isolated incident). The only consolation I can offer to people like him is that most of us bullies end up cursed.

    I usually beat bullies up for fun... the danger of being one of the "smart kids" (and therefore a typical target) but also being pretty awesome at kicking ass... pick on me and your nose will BLEED

    I don't need their apology... we're already even

    The moment the subscriber alert alerted that a new post has been made and that the person who made it was you (an ESTP) I knew (I JUST knew) that the post would be something in the lines of self-proclaimed masculinity (boldness/bravery etc).

    That's one thing I'll never be able to imitate from ESTPs. All of them are this way. While I sort of indulge in where I've fallen short. Even if I've done better. The same ESTP friends tell me to cut it out.

    you sound like someone who wouldn't be bullied in the first place, especially based on this (I know from experience. I went from being frightened, confused and not knowing what to do to adopting a similar approach to bullies and, lo and behold, they started to disappear from all walks of my life)

    In high school, bully stole and ate a young man's lunch every day. Kept taking his lunch so he masturbated in his drink.

    Bully drank his cu* for two years.

    A few years I'd actually communicated with two people that bullied me when I was a child. They acted as if nothing of the sort had been the case. That actually pissed me off.

    It's not that I want an apology. It was a long time ago, and no matter how bad it was, that time of my life is long past, and I'm over the things that happened then (and I have plenty of current problems on my hands, so it's not like I'm hurting for drama here). An apology now will not retroactively fix the pain they inflicted then, and means nothing now. For the most part, I don't care about the people that wronged me then one way or the other. The most thought I give it now is to hope they've grown up and learned to treat people better.

    That's different from actually coming into contact with these people and having them act like nothing happened and we were all good buddies. We weren't. I realize they may feel embarrassed about their behavior now and not wish to remember/acknowledge it, but rewriting history like that borders on gaslighting. Gaslighting me, because it was a really big deal to me at the time, so I do, in fact, remember. And that is a behavior that they are engaging in now that is dishonest/disrespectful at best, so as far as I'm concerned, my anger is justified. I don't think I'm owed an apology. But acknowledgement of facts is not optional.
    And that's my two cents on the subject.

    I didn't get bullied at all really, and I wouldn't want to really hear an apology for any time someone attempted to bully me, because I probably already payed them back in one way or another. I made "friends" (as they might have called it) with several "bullies" actually simply based on the fact that I can mold my persona to who I am talking to and sell it off well.

    Honestly, at this point I don't care if the bullies from my past apologize to me or not - I never really cared about them in the first place. If they do apologize, I'll forgive them, but then afterwards I won't stop to think about it any further. There are people in my life who I care about so much more, and those are the ones who really matter.

    I prayed for them. I don't need apologies. I understand why they did it and I forgive them. If they're ever down on their luck and need someone to talk to, I would listen. I hope they're well.
