I used to be the guy that always jumped in when I saw something wrong happening. Whether it was bullying or dishonesty. Nowadays, I'm no longer invincible and choose my battles more carefully. Some I've been aware of for months and still have not come across the best way to help.

When I see a kid being picked on, I summon my inner Batman voice and hope the bullies don't laugh. Most the time it just takes an adult's attention, and the dickheads scatter. Unfortunately, that kind of help is only temporary, so I hope those kids being bullied have a good friend to fall back on after the damage is done. I'm not the guy for that kind of support.

I wish I could come up with a better answer than "it depends," though. The truth of the matter is, I don't know how I'll react anymore. I'll just have to stick with: I hope I can help.
