“A bully is a victim deciding to become a villain to create the illusion of safety ” – Dr. Sam Qurashi
Dr. Sam Qurashi is a former psychiatric resident who views the human mind through his unique sight and actively works as a content creator to change people’s interactions with the world, helping them adapt to emotional and stressful situations.
He attempts to shed light on bullying, which is a common problem today with big consequences. It can cause lasting psychological effects on the victim.
According to him ;
“ Bullies are never born; they are made. A dog that bites is a dog that’s been bitten. Anyone abusive is operating from a place of scarcity; and therefore, is driven by fear. What makes things worse is that even though abuse is a desperate attempt to reclaim control, it is the very thing that takes it away. Because the more people they abuse, the more sleeping enemies they create. ”
As a mind researcher, Dr. Sam analyzes the minds of the bullies and tries to understand their intentions. He says, “They violate because they’ve been violated. They threaten because they’ve been threatened. They bite because they’ve been bitten.” All their actions are reactions to the same sort of treatment and are intended more to protect themselves than harm others.
Furthermore, he states that bullying stems from underlying insecurities, and emotional wounds. Some begin to bully after they have experienced a traumatic event or have been subject to bullying themselves. It is a serious problem and its root cause is required to be addressed and dealt with to heal the emotional wound that gave birth to the abusive behavior that bullies demonstrate.
Dr. Sam Qurashi is a popular influencer on social media who has been helping people understand their emotions and learn how to engage with them to lead an emotionally empowered life. Dr. Sam has worked as a psychiatric resident for 7 years. Later, he realized he could be more effective in helping others if he left the traditional process of working with patients in a hospital, and instead focused on educating the masses and connecting with them through social media. This realization led him to leave his job, walk away from psychiatry, and become a successful self-development content creator.
