Being a Target of Bullying Will Either Make or Break You

make or break

Being the object of bullies is a hell that only few people can comprehend. If you aren’t careful, it can very easily turn you from a kind and caring human being to one of two things:

1. an angry, bitter. distrusting and mean-spirited person

2. a sad, sullen, and withdrawn individual.

Bullying can either make or break a person. Sadly, so many people end up broken. But I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be this way.

If you continue to practice self-care, chances are that, although as painful as it may be, the bullying you suffer will not have as much of an impact as it would if you give up on yourself. So don’t – I repeat – DON’T give up! EVER!

I’m living proof. I’m a very happy, healthy, and successful adult. But if you knew me during high school, you never would’ve thought that I would ever make it as far as I have.

The bullying didn’t break me. It made me! I consciously chose not to let it break me, and you, too, have that choice.

Being bullied is never good. But it not only made me a stronger, more resilient, and compassionate woman, it also motivated me.

It gave me the drive to pursue my goals and dreams. It gave me a purpose. That purpose is to spread awareness of the bullying epidemic, which seems to be sweeping the globe. It gave me the drive to become a published author and be a voice for those who are too afraid to speak out.

If you have a dream, there will be people along the way who will do their best to discourage you because if you flourish, it’ll be as if you’re holding a mirror up to them and showing them a reflection of their own pathetic lives.

No matter how others may treat you, you must continue to follow your dreams and do it because it makes you happy. Never dumb yourself down to make someone else feel better about themselves.

Instead, mute the voices of these toxic people and get them out of your life (if possible) as quickly as you can. Then, continue to go after and achieve your goals because life is too short, not to.

You only get one shot at life. Make it count! Do what fulfills you and live life to the fullest! You can do it!

    • I have one that comes close, Marlagro. I do plan to post very soon about spousal bullying. In fact, I’m handwriting a post on the subject now (I always hand write, then type and polish, then publish post).

      I’m do glad you asked this question.

          • Thank you. I am seeing that in the blogging community. So much so that I was planning to write my Sunday blog about this caring community.

          • That’s so sweet! I’ve written a post about that as well. The WordPress community really puts Facebook and Twitter to shame! I deactivated my Twitter account and I don’t get on FB as much as I used to. I mostly stay right here and I love it! My blogger friends and readers have made a huge difference in my life! I love them like family! ❤

      • Hey, Marlagro. I wanted to let you know that I’ve completed the post about Spousal Bullying and I have it scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:00am (CDT Chicago time). I look forward to your feedback. Have a wonderful Friday evening!
