One of my closest person I talk to on a daily basis is my second cousin (my dad and her mom are cousins). And unfortunately, she has had a few rough days. So I gave her a pep talk about how awesome she is. And that she shouldn’t allow people to treat her any less. I know it’s a hard thing to do at first. But once you begin practicing, you realize just how exhilarating it truly is. I suggested to her, that every time people say something mean to her, to replace it with positive thoughts or even a good memory in her head.
I would remind her whatever they were saying to her, is a reflection of them, which is not about her. I reminded her about how much I love her, so she should just disregard every negative thing they say to her.
Know your worth. Then add tax.
So whenever people are bullying you, just remember that you shouldn’t take what they say to heart. The only thing that matters is what you feel in your heart. Whenever someone treats you with disrespect, always let your inner circle know, so they can comfort you. Also, report it to an authority, this person can be a teacher, principal, a manager, depending on the situation you are in.
And if you are reading, and you are bullying someone else, please stop. There is enough hate in the world already. Figure out why you feel the need to pick on someone, and learn how you change your behaviour. Let’s learn to be kind to one another. We should start by loving ourselves. And we’ll be able to love others as well.
Our words can either harm or heal people, so why harm others when we can heal and uplift them instead.
Choose love, not hate.
