Bullying is a worldwide issue that I feel strongly about. There is no exact cause as to why individuals become bullies because each case is different but there are some common reasons.

For what reason an individual might bully someone can vary but the consequences are still the same. The ones being bullied are still walking away with fear, stress and resentment inside them.
