Here at Kindness Bomb we think the best way to stand up to bullying is to make a conscientious effort to not be a bully. like the over used cliche says, “Check yourself be fore you wreck yourself.” Do you do any of the following?
Talk about celebrities, friends, co-workers or strangers? Does the information you are spreading paint this person in a negative light?
Do your social media posts “call out” a person or group of people?
Do you give dirty looks to people?
Have you taken the time to find one thing you appreciate about the person you are currently interacting with?
The easiest way to become a bully is to stop seeing our fellow human beings as human beings. This means acknowledging they have souls, feelings, struggles, strengths, truths and lies. These are the same things you have. Are your actions motivated by embracing these things about your fellow human kind or are they about destroying them?
I hope that today you take the time to embrace the people around you . NO MATTER WHAT. The person pouring your coffee or making your meal, the stranger with the different style or education than you all need you to take a moment to find something you can embrace about them and not something you can tear apart.
