Have you or someone you know ever felt the effects of a bully? Did you wish there was something you could do about it? Well, there is. You are in the right place at the right time. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter. I’m sending you a hug and a thank you right now. If you’re with someone, give them a hug for me. I am so grateful that you are able to help end the cycle of bullying.
When I was a high school teacher, I spent years researching the 75% of students that said they weren’t bullied. I wanted to know what the difference was between the students that said they were, and the ones that said they weren’t.
There were times when I felt a student was being bullied, and I would step in. The student, when asked, would tell me they had not been bullied; it was just a misunderstanding. As I started watching, discussing, and reading journal entries for these students and looking back at my life, I realized something very important.
People who have a good personal value don’t get bullied. People who have decided their self-worth don’t let others decide it. When they are called a negative name or made fun of, it may hurt, but it does not devastate them. People with a low personal value can be devastated by it, and they can want revenge.
So, today I am here to let you know you are loved, you are valuable, and you are needed in this time and space. You have a purpose that no one else can fulfill and you must fill it or our world will be the worse for it. I love you and God loves you. He loves you more than you can measure. You are not alone. You always have Him with you. I know it is hard to feel or believe it sometimes, but if you just sit still and be quite, you will find Him. That voice inside you saying you are no good is the evil in this world. Stop listening to it. That still small voice saying you are valuable, you are loved and needed; that is God. It is time you started listening to it. I know you have both you just need to focus on the one that makes you feel better.
Once you start listening to God and His love for you, you will notice others saying kind things to you as well. It is time to get rid of the negative evil in your life and start looking for what God has in store for you. He will help you build mansions filled with love and happiness you just need to believe you are worth it.
So, if you want to end bullying start believing in yourself. Stop saying bad things to yourself and love your neighbor as yourself. That means you must first love yourself.
Thanks for spending time with me again today.
Have a wonderful day,
