Children do not separate themselves in playground unless there’s something or someone scaring them away.
Intimidation means different thing to different children at different times.
Sylvester, the only heir to Mr. Charles’s (his father) wealth grew up with lots of selfishness in him. He would always intimidate his friends with his father’s wealth. One of his popular lines was “even if I don’t merit it, money will buy it.” His friends got accustomed to his behavior and would never compete in anything that Sylvester is involved in.
Following the illustration above, intimidation can take away your confidence. It makes you to conclude even before beginning. This simply mean that some children will avoid the place of potential growth due to intimidation.
People would decide to intimidate people because they have nothing to offer. So, their means of escape is to scare people so as to clear the hurdles on their way. Mediocrity cripples a child, prevents them from self-improvement, which in the future can make them bribe their way to success.
A good number of children die gradually due to intimidation. We see this almost everyday among the lower class. Children may be forced to be quiet in the face of difficulty because they’re incapacitated.
It’s been discovered that lack of adequate care can cripple a child as well as make them humble.
Additionally, intimidation prevents children from trying new opportunities. There are opportunities for children that can look beyond the surface level in a given task. Most children have backed off from an opportunity that’s capable of making them better because of the people involved in it, which might be caused by bullying.
They’re close to success but can’t deal with people in success already. The fact is that not everyone who has won in the past is capable of winning again. The smart ones understand that the road to success is their strength, but an amateur sees this as intimidation and fails to level up.
The best way to fight intimidation is to own your space and stand up for what you believe. A child who is intimidated by a forest will never see the estate in it. If it’s deserving, it’s worth breaking the ceiling glass.
Nobody wins in a shell. To win, you must look beyond the surface level and bring your A game to the field. Most times what we see as intimidation are just amours.
