There is so much attention in the media lately about bullying. The messages are universal: be kind to one another. If anyone is different – acts differently – looks different than you, treat them with love and respect. Don’t judge. And certainly don’t bully anyone – especially with words.

Now that I’ve got you thinking about others – this would be a great time to remind you – treat yourself the same way.

No bullying yourself. 

Be kind to yourself. 

Treat the person the in the mirror with love and respect.

We learn by what we love. Love yourself – no matter what. 
So tell me – have you ever been a victim of self-bullying? 
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.  ~Eleanor Roosevelt

  1. Oh my goodness, I've bullied myself worse than any "mean girl" could. When I was too skinny, I wanted to gain weight. When I gained weight, I called myself fat. Never smart enough, never good enough. It gets better the older I get but I still have a ways to go.

  2. I could so kick my own ass, but I don't. Whenever I do something stupid I think back to things I've done that were even more stupid and feel better. Probably an ass-backward way of going about it but it works for me.

  3. All the time! I am my biggest critic but when I hear that voice in my head I am slowly learning to tell her to get lost 🙂 I've learned to love myself but if other people don't, that's their prerogative and their loss!

  4. I've bullied myself so many times in past and i am ashamed to admit, i still catch mysyself doing it from time to time. Like for example last Saturday night. I had a very upsetting conversation with one of my friends and instead of thinking about it in objective way i've decided i am a useless person, because i've asked a question that was uncomfortable for both of us but needed to be answered… I'm trying my best no to bully myself but sometimes old habits are hard to forget!

  5. Great post! Too true we often forget this and allow ourselves to beat up on ourselves. It's sad.I try not to have regrets….sometimes they will come up but I try not to dwell on them, I guess…instead of continually beating myself up about them.

  6. Very nice blog. I must say, I've been bullied before. As a kid, there were plenty of jerks. Luckily, there were some cool kids who liked to pick on the bullies. I don't know if they were considered bullies, or if it was simply a 'bully chain of command' that I was on the bottom of, but they saved my butt.Draven Ames http://dravenames.blogspot.com/
