Bullying is a topic that has come to national attention over the past 10 years and more disturbingly, in recent public adult interactions, as bullying is no longer just in our schoolyards.
What does it mean to be a bully? To use your position and power, physical or otherwise, to physically or emotionally attack or demean another person.
But do we notice when WE are the ones doing the bullying? Pushing into a line, not waiting our turn, demanding service in a restaurant? These are examples of bullying, too. Before we pass judgment on others, it would be wise to review our own daily interactions and take notice of when our behavior is not as kind as it could be.
“Today I will begin with loving myself and from that place choose the loving response as much as I can with those I meet.”
