Escaping my bully
In this episode I want to share something personal about my life. This episode is about bullying and its lifelong effects. My bully made me who I am today. I hope if you are experiencing bullying that you take the time to listen.
I learned a lot in school, and most of it in the schoolyard. I learned to run fast, and dodge. I learned that there is no justice in the world. I learned the world is a harsh place and the good guys lose. I learned to be self sufficient. I learned to escape into fantasy.
My life was shaped by a series of bullies. I’m only now learning to stick up for myself. To value myself. To not run from conflict when it is necessary. To speak up for my rights. Do I have regrets? Sure. Today I like who I’ve become and I wouldn’t change a thing now that I have worked through the pain.
Do we need adversity to make good strong people willing to stand up and take a risk for others?
