Why people bully and are bullied

People bully others for all kinds of reasons

They may be being bullied themselves and so they think bullying someone else will help them feel better. They may be being encouraged to bully you by ‘friends’ and are afraid of being left out if they don’t do it. They could be threatened by something different about you – your accent, the clothes you wear, your race, or religion. They may be jealous about the way you look, the fact you are good at something or where you live.
