Last night, I saw another example of bullying. I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, looking for inspiration for my stressed-out brain. The first thing that caught my eye was my friend talking about her daughter’s awful day at school. People, teach your children that picking on others doesn’t make them beautiful. It makes them the beast.


The next thing that caught my eye was a picture of Shrek and Princess Fiona. That about says it all, doesn’t it? Two people, who love each other, are beautiful, to each other. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

Hi Tracey not sure if you have a question to answer. Your post is not showing everything right for me. Bullies sure are beasts aren't they? Shrek and Princess Fiona sure were in love. Great story/movie. I enjoy stories like that with happy endings. Thanks for being part of the blog hop.

Yes, people who bully are the beasts of the worst kind. And on the other hand the characters who look like beasts turn out to be the ones with the biggest hearts.

In 6th grade I was bullied by the prettiest girl in the class--Lisa. She could have done so much more with her life--which ended tragically young. It was bad karma all the way around.

Beautiful girl you posted :) All I can say about bullies is that they have fear of those people they bully and want to belittle them, if only they would take the time to get to know them! What beasts they are!

For the majority of bullies, be they child or adult, the reason behind the bullying is to give themselves a lacking sense of worth. In a very few instances it is just a case of being a sociopath. A person secure in their being is beautiful no matter the outward appearance. It is a natural attraction that draws others to you.

Great collage! :) I love that people can love each other for who they are and not for what they look like! :) Thanks for sharing!

Bullies truly are beasts. And I think you might want to look over your coding. It seems off for me.
