The bullied at home often turn into bullies in an effort to gain control...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Conrad, you've turned pain into power by ensuring that your experiences are now used to help others. I applaud and commend you for that, and for realizing that being a bully is not who you really are. When we understand that bullies are often bullied and battered themselves by the adults around them, we can do so more to deal effectively with the situation. You can, and will, speak from personal experience, which gives you much to be proud of. Peace and love to you too, Conrad. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

When a bully is not recognized, named and shamed
by: maurice

Conrad, your Father was a bully, An abuser, A controller rather than a diciplinarian or A FATHER. He convinced your mother you desereved the beatings/hittings he administered on you. A percent of males are created bullies by the way they were reared by their parents especially by the macho image they are held in our society. Thankfully I say a percent which is pretty high but the great percent of Fathers with their wifes or partnesr are respected and loved by their children because they in turn love and respect their children. You Conrad were not given a fair chance to explain yourself especially when your mother did not accept the beautings of your father on you to control your michievnesss. Great now you have used that misunderstand to be your true self gentle, kind, understanding. Darlene has spoken, take note of her comment, she surely put you in perspective where you are at now. Keep being true to yourself, your own self belief, self worth, Value the self that you know has worked at getting to know the wonderful and gifted you. Always believe in yourself

I understand your anger
by: Anonymous

Conrad, I'm sorry that you didn't have a good family. I can relate to your mother turning her back on you when you needed her; my so-called parents abused me, too, and everyone always believed them over me...even going so far into telling me that I "deserved to be punished for being bad" (just as they always called it). Have you tried counselling? Be brave, Conrad, and stay strong.
