Easter Weekend Ripples
The word bullying brings up many different images depending on your experience with it. You may see a particular face or hear a voice. You may feel emotions that cause you pain. Maybe you were the bully and you feel remorse and shame. Either way the word affects you.
I have worked with people who were bullied and years later it is still affecting them. I have helped people and in a moment watched them transform right before my eyes.
Nothing has meaning except the meaning you give it. If you have a moment in time that is causing you pain or discomfort, I invite you to revisit it with a different set of filters or lenses. Change your point of view so to speak.
This time with you look back I invite you to think of the statement hurt people hurt people. Ask yourself without judgement but curiosity, “What would cause someone to say or do something like that?” “Why would a reasonable rational person behave that way?”
When you remember that hurt people hurt people and you realize the comment made had nothing to do with you and everything to do with them and their pain, you are more likely to see it in a different way. You truly are able to change your past one ripple at a time.
You can heal the pain from your past and watch the healing ripple out into your future. You have the ability to change your past and your future at the speed of thought.
You create your life one thought at a time. I invite you to start thinking about things differently. The struggles of today are building the muscles for tomorrow. You can do hard things. You can make a difference one decision at a time.
It would be my pleasure to gift you a copy of my book Bully Proofing You: Improving Confidence and Personal Value from the Inside Out. All you need to do is go to www.bullyproofingyoubook.com
Let’s heal some people this Easter weekend.
