I was bullied at school and never stood up for myself until one day (more than 60 years ago) it went too far.
Like the narrator of the above story it was a fight arranged so that the whole school knew about it and a great crowd assembled at the 'tip' to see it. For 10 minutes I *boxed* my way through - he not hitting me once. At that point I saw the futility of it all and just walked away. They all said "You were on top - why did you walk away?". I just smiled. I also had seen that we were all one and that the fight was totally futile.
That experience strengthened my conviction to the present day, aged 78.
