I was buliied recently.  I am a 53 year old, white, male, successful
professional.  It was a bit weird.

I don't want to give details, because they would identify the people involved,
which would be complicated socially.  But I was harassed by email over a
couple of weeks by two people, who also contacted my partner, Paulina.

At first it just seemed like odd behaviour, but when I asked them to stop, and
they did not, I recognised the similarities with episodes in childhood.  Like
then I was confused but resistant (so you might call it an attempt at
bullying, rather than the real thing, because I never felt intimidated).  Like
then, the people involved were - I think (I can find no other explanation) -
resentful that I have a better life than they do.

There's really no word other than weird.  It was damn weird.

They apologised later and we haven't communicated since.
