Let’s talk about bullying for a second. This topic is negative, and not something I want to shine a light on, but its something I’ve personally experienced myself in the past & I think we need more women standing together against this type of behaviour, as we need to protect each other, and our children. I used to let it bother me when someone said something negative about me or started a rumor about me, but I have learned to have a thick skin, and not give a sh*t what people say or think about me. I mean, honestly, if someone doesn’t like me or something about me – that’s really their problem, not mine.
It is so sad that people are still interested in hurting each other as adults, it doesn’t end in high school apparently, and they will go out of their way to target others. There are so many bitter people in the world, maybe they’re bored with their own lives so they find digging into other peoples business more exciting.
It makes me want to shelter my daughter – but I won’t, I will be teaching her to love herself, to have respect for herself, and to be a bad ass. Teach her not to listen to anyone tell her anything about who she is. Knowing yourself, having self-confidence and knowing when to tell someone to f*ck off, when appropriate. This is what I wish I had known when I was younger. The way you react, and respond to negative behavior is everything. If you just brush it off and move forward, ignore it. It’s a lot easier.
If you’re a young woman going through something in life right now, or you’ve been targeted, or you’re being attacked online etc. Remember you’re not alone, and remember the best thing you can do is to ignore it, do not respond.
Let’s make a change. Let’s stop hating on each other. Let’s lift each other up. Let’s support each other’s businesses. Let’s be there for each other. Let’s stand AGAINST bullies. Let’s STOP the gossip, by not sharing it.
Let’s protect our children.
