Life can be compared to a bully as it keeps throwing mockeries at us, big and small, checking each time if we pass the trial or not. Psychologists all over the world suggest avoiding treating a classic bully with whining, fear, or tears, as it can only reinforce the bad behavior. Instead, we can treat the abuser with the “SSS” approach, which stands for “serenity, smile, and self-irony” and it’s the best weapon against the whimsical twists of fate.
