AITA for thinking victims of bullying and depression just aren’t trying hard enough to find a sense of self worth?


Look at my post history, and you'll see through the eyes of me - a POS who was a bully.

If anything, bullies are the pieces of shit who are trying to find self worth by putting down people who are vulnerable to them. They get power off making others feel smaller than them.

How can bullying victims find self-worth, if at such young ages - someone else is telling them that they're not worth anything? Most people who get bullied are at the age and psychological state where their own identity and self-worth is built off what other people think about them, and if your bully tells you you're worth it, then those wounds aren't going to go away. You can't expect young people to know what self-worth even means at those ages.
