Bullies are humans who act with aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, physically or mentally. The bully gains power through verbal or written abuse, exclusion of the victim from activities or from social situations. Another form of this is called social aggression or indirect bullying which is characterized by threatening the victim into social isolation. Divas, on the other hand, are humans who are often regarded as egotistical, unreasonable and irritable, with a high opinion of themselves not shared by others.
Mr. B. told me a story about a bully and a diva he knows. For a very long time now, this particularly bully made sure the victim is mocked one way or the other in every way possible at any given opportunity. I believe humans call this "messing up one's mind". A lot of people knows about this but are totally helpless. Those who wanted to stand up for the victim were also left exhausted by various failed efforts. You see, bullies can guise their actions as acts for "common good". Meanwhile, the diva goes around ordering people in rather obnoxious ways as if people are born to serve its every whim. And of course, the diva would be the most vocal about every little inconveniences and often comes with a long list of woes and miseries, mostly imagined. Bullies and divas both think they are intellectually superior than others. That is their common delusion. They most often refuse to see things any other way but theirs. That is where the problem lies.
Humans are strange and the world can be unfair. One can only hope that the victims of these two creatures can very quickly come to realization, count their losses and just move on. I am very sure that one day, not very far from today, Mr. B. will also be free from seeing the bully and the diva. For the world would be a better place without them.
