If you haven’t you probably know someone who has had to contend with a schoolyard bully. You know, the one who picks on the weaker to make himself feel better, does it to make himself feel good.
Or maybe it is a bully on the workplace, one who likes to throw his weight around. It may be his position in the company, his seniority. Likes to take pot shots at those he feels superior over.
For those two there is some reprieve, at the end of the school day, and the end of the day at work.
The Bully Of A Different Kind
There is a different kind of bully, one that there is no reprieve, no way to escape from it’s taunts, ridicules, and harsh words. That bully is what I will call “the 24 Hour Bully”. You must understand that this bully is within each of us if we so choose to allow it dwell there.
The 24 hour bully is there when we awaken every morning, follows us all through the day, and then there in our bedroom when it is time to go to sleep.
Yes, I know there is medication that can quiet the loud voice in our mind, numb it’s effects of the hurt it inflicts upon us. These medications for me leaves me with hangovers the next day leaving me feeling detached from what is happening around me. I hate this feeling, I do not feel alive inside me.
So, try as hard as I can this 24 hour bully just won’t shut up!
