It seems so elementary to have to address this, but it must be said.

Adult bullies are real and must be recognized.

I’m writing this post for the bullies.

In honor of you.

To empower you and give you the validation you so desire.

It must be hard to feel so worthless that you seek negative attention.

I don’t want that for you.

You deserve better.

I’m here to acknowledge you.

The attention you crave so much, you are finally receiving.

I see you.

You exist.

Your voice is heard.

Your comments are read (& deleted)

You have your place in this world.

You are not worthless.

I’ve tried to come up with so many ways to celebrate your role in my life.

So I figured I’d dedicate a post just for you.

~ I know you read them all ~

It’s been said that light cannot exist without darkness.  

~ So you are the balance ~

Ying Yang status yo!


You legit girl

I mean, how miserable of a place must it be for you to rely on harassing others to feel validated?

How dark must your soul feel to realize that your actions are a reflection of your self worth?

I don’t want you there hun.

It breaks my heart boo.

So today, I shout you out.

I give you a high five.

Your’re not invisible

~ a little pathetic…..but never invisible ~

Know this:

when you think of ways to attack my character,

my, oh so damn fine, figure

~ btw #fuckyourbeautystandards ~

and troll on the regular…..

You inspire me to never fill up the earth with that kind of negative energy.

…..cuz darling, that’s your job…..and you do it well…


xo ~ D

    That was real and funny at the same time! Bullies suck and it’s true, they must be very sad in order to behave like that towards others, but honestly there is no excuse for it!

    • Doris MartinMarch 8, 2017 at 8:19 pm #

      Thank you! There’s definitely no excuse for it…

    Negativity and bullying has no place in real life. Bullies are unhappy and miserable people projecting their poison, I avoid them like the plague, after calling them out of course! LOL

    • Doris MartinMarch 8, 2017 at 11:27 pm #

      Yessss!!! We have to stay away from them but let them know you’re not having it

    • Doris MartinMarch 8, 2017 at 11:29 pm #

      Thx! When people are miserable they want everyone else to be as miserable as they are…it sucks

    I have zero time nor patience for bullies and am truly blessed that my kids have learned to stand up to them not only for themselves but, their friends too. I am so proud when they come home and tell me these things. Flip side is that, yes, I do worry about things turning into worse things. They are all in elementary currently too 🙁 Love your poem, it truly spoke to me 🙂

    • Doris MartinMarch 8, 2017 at 11:33 pm #

      Thank you! We just have to raise our kids to be decent human beings

    I know it’s so easy to think that bullies go away after high school. But they do continue to follow you for the rest of your life. It’s sad that these people continue to feel the need to control people and abuse them with their words and actions.

    • Doris MartinMarch 8, 2017 at 11:26 pm #

      Unfortunately we have to wait for them to grow up & go away…

  13. Taris KendricksMarch 2, 2017 at 9:38 am #

    I love this. Negative people always try to find they way into someones positive. Their is adult bullies, I deal with it. Sometimes they be in their 30’s and I am 21. That is horrible. Lol. But, great job releasing that. Good place to do that. Love this.

    It’s a shame you’re coming across that. Luckily, I’m in a friendly workplace.

  16. CaseyApril 22, 2017 at 12:41 am #

    You’d think if you had a blog in the work for years. That you’d actually blog. Ohhhh right someone would actually have to date you for you to do that.

    • Doris MartinApril 22, 2017 at 12:55 pm #

      Awwww thx for being concerned about my dating life #keeptrolling

    • Nicky MarieApril 22, 2017 at 4:22 pm #

      You’d think if someone was going to be a complete narcissistic bitch & comment on a post regarding “bullying,” trying to offend the author of the post that they would sound a tad more literate.. oh wait.. do you need a man to do that too? #getittogether

    She has no life. Its very apparent. She’s a liar and a mean spirited woman. She gets what she gives. I’ll leave her alone when she admits the truth… Until then #sorrynotsorry Doris. No need to make up other names to resopond. Its me and you girl…

    • Doris MartinApril 22, 2017 at 6:11 pm #
