Learning to avoid bullies…


After this crazy week, I saw the following post from Seth Godin on avoiding bullies.  Besides the fact is was very timely, there is also sage advice here.

A bully is someone who uses physical or psychological force to demean and demoralize someone else. A bully isn’t challenging your ideas, or working with you to find a better outcome. A bully is playing a game, one that he or she enjoys and needs. …

When there’s no ball, there’s no game. Bullies hate that. So they’ll either behave so they can play with you or they’ll go bully someone else.

In a few weeks, there will  be another “crackpot”.  And another storm of posts from “independent bloggers.”  But I’ll know that I don’t need to play the evil game.
