Our society is full of talk against bullying, and for good reason. Bullying is imposing one's will over another, and in imposing that will, the will of the person and the needs of the person being bullied, go out the window.
Bullying is in direct opposition to the First Law of the Universe – Harm No One. Yet, we see many adults who bully others, intimidate others, and manipulate others. They seem to think that it is okay.
As much as we believe in the rules/laws about anti-bullying, we still will bully ourselves. We even use the same phrases against ourselves – against our body and our emotions – by trying to force them to be something that they are not.
For the next seven days, do not bully yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be strict if you have to be, but be conscious that we should treat ourselves as well as we can.
