In bullying, no physical thrusts are present, it's all verbal, yet it can destroy an individual.
It is an individual's choice what the effect of verbal bullying has.
If a verbal attack destroys you, that is your choice.

Yet like physical attacks, verbal attacks are specific, they might attack our person, our behaviors, our preferences, our heritage etc. We need appropriate responses to divert the energy and immobilize our opponentsBob
The best response to nonphysical bullying is no response. Do not engage the bully. Stay away from someone who is a bully, leave if someone is bullying you, or if you can't do either of the above then ignore the bully.
