Why an Awesome Somebody Is Not a Bully

So—The story goes somewhat like this:  A person is doing the best she can to make a living while also providing a service to the local community.  Sounds innocent enough, doesn’t it?

Here’s the problem…the person in question is tormented by the very people she is serving.  The cruelty of the tormenting is disgusting but very real.  Don’t believe me take a look at this and then see what you think.

And…it’s not always kids doing the bullying, either!  There’s a story out there where a gym teacher joined with some of his charges in bullying a 13-year-old boy.

Have you ever been a victim of bullying?

Dealing with it is all about the attitude you take.

To illustrate what I mean by that comment consider the thoughts on the following video.

There are some things you can do to become a “somebody…” a person who has a healthy sense of self-worth.

You can’t look outwardly in trying to develop a comfortable self-image.  It takes deep inward reflection.

Don’t try to be something you aren’t.  Authenticity is the foundation of a strong self-image.

Develop a higher sense of Emotional Intelligence.  In short, pay attention to how you are feeling when in a particular interaction and how you think the other person is feeling.  Manage the interaction by focusing on doing the authentic things necessary to create a successful outcome.

Do the right thing all the time; every time.  Cutting corners will eat at your sense of self-worth.

There is the old adage:  The more you give…the more you get.  That certainly holds true in building your self-image.  Give a lot to others and you will be rewarded with a greater sense of self-worth.

Think—best effort—rather than perfection.  Perfect is the ideal but it can’t be the consistent expectation because nobody is perfect.

Make a mistake and learn from it don’t dwell on it.  Dwelling on the past erodes your self-esteem now and in the future.
