Don't Feel that Way
If, when reading the case studies on this website, you want to say, "Targets of bullies shouldn't feel that way" ask yourself how telling people how they should feel has worked for you in the past. How does your spouse feel about telling her/him how to feel? Did that work out for you?
People feel the way they feel. Dismissing and invalidating people's feelings is not productive or useful. Accept their feelings and work with them to increase everyone's understanding of how other people feel and why they act the way they do. Communication and mutual understanding is the only way past these kind of bullying situations.
Dictatorial commands telling someone to feel a certain way is not the answer. Would you tell a woman subjected to sexual harassment, "don't feel that way"? Being the target of a bully is a similar situation.
And notice that the targets of bullies don't object to how bullies think or feel. They object to how bullies act towards them -- their outward behavior and actions. Why don't you ask the bullies to stop acting that way, instead of telling their targets to feel different about how they have been treated?
Is it easier to get people to change behavior, or to change their feelings? I suggest it will be easier to get bullies to modify their outward behavior through education, awareness, and social conditioning than to try to change the internal thoughts and feelings of the bully or their target.
When the target of bullies is told not to talk with the bullies and to keep away from them, that only freezes the situation into broken relationships without any hope for change.
So, who benefits from freezing the situation?
