Becoming Bully Proof
October is National Bullying Prevention Month, this means we will be diving into the secrets that will help all of us become Bully Proof.
The war against bullying is a very positive movement. There are a lot of things being done - but at the same time, it doesn’t feel like it’s quite hitting the mark. The message towards bullies to.. stop bullying is not very effective - usually the bully doesn’t even consider what they are doing to be bullying!
And then there is the message for bi-standards to stand up and speak out against the bully. This is also very positive, but what happens if the bi-standard is not there?
The problem with both of these messages is that they rely on other parties to do something, it does not allow you as an individual to have control of the situation. Today we talk about the 3rd message, how to empower yourself with confidence and make yourself become Bully Proof.
