Our stories could be identical except I learned that bullies will not put their hands on you if they know you will hurt them for it. But they may bad mouth you. You can't control someone's speech but you can bust their butt for touching you. That's been my experience.
In the prison called high school I learned to get along with those that wanted to get along, never engage the verbal bullies(akin to don't feed the troll), and make it very expensive for anyone to put their hands on me. As a result, no one wanted fight me, I got along with lots of people, and the sewer brains remained sewer brains.
