Good evening, everyone. I hope you all are having a very blessed Monday. Due to feeling under the weather and writer’s block, it has been a few days since my last blog and I would like to apologize for my absence.
Today, I feel compelled to address something that’s so easy for bullying targets to get sucked into- hate. Targets of bullying often feel that their hate is justified. However, does this intense loathing serve any purpose or have benefits? No. And here’s why:
No matter how you were wronged by a person, never give into hate. No matter how severely that person may have transgressed against you, do not, under any circumstances, allow yourself to HATE them because hate is POISONOUS! Not to the other person but to YOU!
Hate burns you up inside. It eats down into your very soul and prolongs feelings of hurt, depression and downright misery. Hate does NOT hurt the person being hated, it hurts YOU because nine times out of ten, the person you hate either doesn’t know about it, or they don’t care. Anytime you hold hate in your heart against anyone, you unwittingly give up any blessings and forego any opportunities, which would otherwise come your way. You instead invite negativity and evil into your world. You end up forfeiting your own happiness and life is too short to be anything but happy.
While you are sitting around stewing over some idiot who has wronged you in the past, that same idiot is going about their merry way and not giving you so much as a thought. While you are holding grudges and plotting ways to get back at him/her, that person is just getting on with life. They are not worried about you. They are not thinking about you. So why are you thinking about them? They are a complete waste of brain activity!
Hate, insecurity, grudges, anger…they are all garbage in your life that needs to be disposed of. It’s time to take out the trash and take back the peace and happiness that you not only deserve but have a divine right to.
