South Park Wisdom: The Most Real Take On Bullying

Bullying is a terrible thing that exists today.

And South Park is an awesome series that is loaded with nuggets of wisdom, so don't judge it to be some childish show that's filled with profanities.

I think one of the main problems with bullying is that we approach it with an unrealistic and unempathetic manner. Instead, we give trite and cliched solutions that make the victims feel unsupported while it looks like the bully gets away Scott-free.

Knowing that life is unfair and that not everything goes your way in life is a powerful trait to learn, but to be bullied into learning it? That's an irony that can be too painful to handle.

Surely, we can do better.

Here's the quote from South Park:

Context: Butters' grandma has been bullying him in this episode. Butters' snapped one day and took it out on someone else. This was the aftermath of how he felt.

. You can snap and finally fight back, but it may not be as great as you think it is.

. Bullies don't feel good about themselves. Period. It's a life of unfulfillment, anger and unhappiness.

. It can get better. As you grow older, things can change for you.

. It's extremely powerful to show compassion to your bully the day it comes.
