What is it that makes one feel the need to bully? I must admit I have always had a problem understanding why kids and adults "bully". Over and over you hear they must of been bullied as a child. This is an excuse and holds no water. I was relentlessly bullied as a child and even during my adult life. I would and and could not bully back even today. If you react the same way you are being treated then you become the same. Do you want this? For me, as a child, I would hurt and cry and be so unhappy. I would be tripped walking down the isle on the school bus, called all kinds of names, laughed at, spit at, and more. However, in my mind I knew that I was going to turn this negative around and make it a positive. I have said time and time again "don't be a victim, be a conqueror. " This is a strong hold for me. I do not want to be in that negative place, you don't have to either. Remember, you are the captain of your ship and you can set sail in the direction you want to go. No one is saying you won't cross turbulence but with a positive attitude you come out ahead clear sailing. For me, I say a prayer for that person, forgive them and move on. I look at it this way. I don't have that burden on my plate. I am not holding on to a negative but turning it into a positive. This is not about me(you) but a person who is very unhappy with their life. A positive person who is content would not do this even if it appears they are content. I try to look each day as a new beginning and I have a choice on how I am going to live each day. I want you to be happy and you can be. Try to practice this and you will see how much better you feel.
