Scorpions are dangerous because of their venomous tail that can cause painful stings on intruders or a prospective meal. Any species of scorpion can be dangerous if they feel disturbed or threatened. Their sting is their defense mechanism and they will attack if they feel vulnerable, even if their victim meant them no harm. People can have defense mechanisms, too.
Sometimes, bullies are really just frightened or don’t believe in themselves so they pick on other kids. Bullies are like scorpion people. They sting, even when their victim isn’t doing anything wrong. They sting to protect themselves from exposing their vulnerabilities. Here is what you can do to avoid being a scorpion, and what you can do to help someone who is already a scorpion. To avoid being a scorpion you must believe in yourself. Believing in yourself is like flying and you can fly above all of the bad people when you believe in yourself. To help someone who is already a scorpion, maybe you can tell them that you believe in them. Maybe if they hear that someone else believes in them, they will feel strong enough to believe in themselves, and together you can fly above all of the badness and see how big the world really is.
