    Default Would you want to hear an apology from one of your childhood bullies?

    Or would you simply be pleased never to hear from them again?

    Depends on the bully. The mild ones I would be OK with an apology. I think there is some cosmic forgiveness that forgives us for our sins and transgressions only to the degree we forgive others.

    The really bad ones, however, I would like to to see suffer in front of my eyes (the apology they could just stick in their ass).
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    I kinda figure anyone who needs to feed off the pain of others has more problems than I ever will, so I don't expect or require an apology from anyone who might've mistreated me that way in my youth. If they grew out of that, good. I'm happy for them. Either way I sort of feel indifferent to the whole thing. I grew past whatever pain they inflicted long ago.


    Except that one boy who chucked a rock at my head when I was ten, landing me in the hospital with a concussion, exposed skull and 35 stitches.

    I'd like to see him again.

    ..Just to tell him the X-Men are STILL LAME.

    I had a few run-ins with kids I thought were bullies at the time, but were actually pretty mild, and were probably only bullies because they were insecure themselves. I don't need an apology for being a stupid kid. But I never experienced serious bullying, and not anything at all beyond 6th grade or so.

    There were a couple of kids I behaved badly to, as well, completely out of my own social insecurity. I would probably apologize to them if I saw them again, but I probably will never see them again.

    Not really. I deserved most of what I got.

    (I was the kid who would bully the bullies...and then get bullied in return. I liked poking the bear knowing one day he'd try to kick my ass..)

    For the select few, I would prescribe one of these.

    That bag he's kicking probably weighs 300 lbs.

    A blown out knee would send the right message.

    Nah, that stuff is old news. I assume after all these years, they aren't the same people anyway. It really isn't worth holding onto that sort of grudge for long.

    I was bullied for being a nerd girl in school, and it was hell, but I survived. We were all young and silly back then. I would prefer everyone just forget about it.

    At this point in time, I wouldn't care. It's been 25-30 years since school-age bullies; and if they're bothering to come back and apologize at this point, they must mean it. We all seemed to have grown up since school. I'm mostly indifferent to the apology itself, but it if makes them feel better....
