The former bullied knows the pain you are going through and yet the ungrateful former bullied will join the bullying to attack you. That makes them more cowards than the bully who does not yet know the pain of being bullied. My intention is not to play a British style words game, but I hope my message is getting across to you. The person who is more despised than the bully is the former bullied who joins a collective bullying. Furthermore, the former bullied-turned predator will slip back into the discriminated position when it will be more convenient to appear weak in this politically-correct age. Media loves the story of underdogs, the victims, etc. because it will get a higher rating.
The people who knows my situation (and the readers of my blog) would not argue that I have been their victim in true sense and they suggest revenge. But I would have to remain a victim throughout the process of revenge. The longer I remain a victim, more chances of me becoming a stealthy predator. I am a human after all. The benefit of the victim card is tempting, but becoming a Sludge feels ominious. They are getting by, but their restaurant could have been so much better had they chosen to do things right. Yet, my not doing anything would seem like a defeat to the bully, almost a poor excuse for not having the courage to fight back the evil.
