Being able to turn other girls against a target makes them more popular. 5 The result of relational aggression is that school becomes a “minefield” in which girls must constantly keep track of which girl is on which side and negotiate their own places, Simmons writes.

The desire to fight and bully went away with maturity—in ninth grade I was at the bottom of the chain again. I didn’t have anyone to bully and I was growing out of it anyway.

But she is willing to say: It’s hard to know what to do—I was an outspoken kid and I still got trampled on.

She found that being a bully did not make her feel any happier than being the victim. Chandra was being bullied and bullying at school.
