I will always be perplexed by the people who continue to encourage and/or support a bullies pattern, especially after the parallels have been confirmed.
A bully response in a specific way when revealed. The website bully online explains it perfectly:
"Serial bullies harbour a particular hatred of anyone who can articulate their behaviour profile, either verbally or in writing - as on this page - in a manner which helps other people see through their deception and their mask of deceit. The usual instinctive response is to launch a bitter personal attack on the person's credentials, lack of qualifications, and right to talk about personality disorders, psychopathic personality etc, whilst preserving their right to talk about anything they choose - all the while adding nothing to the debate themselves."The pattern is clear. If you are someone who is involved with a bully and their pattern is revealed, you have a choice to continue to listen to their gossip and lies. Trust me, if you are starting to question the bully's reactions and are walking away with a gut feeling...do not ignore it, it is your warning. As I have said before, if you think for one second as the bully is talking about me or someone else, trust me they have and are talking about you. If you stop and reflect with an open mind, you will piece things all together.
"Serial bullies hate to see themselves and their behaviour reflected as if they are looking into a mirror." http://www.bullyonline.org/workbully/serial.htm#Denial
If the light bulb goes on in your head, as it did in mind, you will distance yourself or put up some walls away from the bully. Sadly, once a bully always a bully and revealing a bully's true colors, well you already know what that entails. Just remember a young child, a brownie/cub scout leader, a wife/husband, your child, your mother/father or YOU will be attacked.
What will you choose to do?
