Hi, I woke up today and saw my old school classmate’s b’day stories. She is good friends with my high school bullies and she still is and she was celebrating her day with them. That didn’t affect me much but my cousin brother is friends with all of them and he was there too. I don’t know why but I always feel angry and sad whenever I see them together. My cousin is not very close to me but it bothers me if he hangs out with my high school bullies.
I feel this immense hatred towards my high school bullies get even larger when I see my cousin brother with them.
I just want to get over this feeling. Can someone help me with the same?

It’s been said that clinging to resentment is like drinking poison waiting for the other person to die.

All things considered, even you yourself have said and done things that have hurt others. In fact, we have all needed to be forgiven at some time or another:

“Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely even if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Just as Jehovah freely forgave you, you must also do the same.” -Colossians 3:13

How did they bully u?
See u cant control people, u said classmate, its not like u were close to her
And cousin, like u said u aint close, altho the anger is pretty valid but u just have to remember u can’t really do anything in this situation…

They made me the target in my class, I was made fun of constantly and they even used to tell that you shouldn’t laugh because it scares me.
I know that I’m not close to them but somehow this anger inside of me won’t go.
They are living their best life possible with those people who could be my friends. They came and destroyed everything and now I have nothing in comparison to those bullies.
How is it that those bullies have a better life than me? Why don’t people see them for who they are?

I suppose they were the “cool” kids in class… hmm yeah that happens…
They probably targetted u because u were soft, and didn’t retaliate…

They were indeed the “cool ones” in the class.
I am an introvert and I was always sitting somewhere minding my business when they would call me, insult me and send me back. They would laugh at me and due to those people I had a horrible school life.
