>>Hypervigilance. I had that for years after I graduated high school. Mistrust, cynicism, paranoia - yep, all from bullying. What's worse, every time I end up with a corporate bully for a boss, I end up re-triggered, and stressed.<<

That probably happens far more than most people realize.

>>So I am an iconoclast, the person who questions, who tries to protect others, sometimes by being the one to say "The Emperor has no clothes!" I've already been burned out several times.<<

Yea, verily.

>>My way of dealing with it is seeing making at least one person's life easier, better, happier as I go through my day as a victory. Answer a question, give someone a tool, tell a joke, make a pun, or just listen to their problems counts.<<

It's important to make a difference.

For all the times people have fucked me over, walked away, told lies behind my back, left me to do all the work ... I'm still the one they come to when they don't know what the fuck to do. Now that's what they call irony.
