RELATIONSHIPS 101: Your Own Enemy

If we sawbullying someone getting bullied, we would feel bad.  Most of us would try to comfort that person.  Some of us might even confront the bully.  We know this is not acceptable behavior.

So why do we bully ourselves? When did that become acceptable behavior?

Every morning we wake up telling ourselves what is wrong with us?  Our hair is not right, our skin is bumpy, our thighs are lumpy…our lives suck!  If some bully said the same thing to our child or loved one, we would be on attack mode.

You get the point!  Stop telling yourself what you aren’t good at.  Stop telling yourself you aren’t good enough.

What I have realized in my life, is that when I became stagnant and unhappy, it was my own fault.  I allowed myself to bully myself.  I was a bully and I was the victim.

Stop allowing yourself to be bullied and start loving yourself!  Regardless of how you feel, tell yourself something good everyday.  When the bully comes out, go into save mode.

Either you will be your own enemy or your own best friend!  It is up to you, not anyone else.

Peace & Love
