Bullies can appear in any circumstance, at any stage of your life, and can sometimes be from those who are supposed to care most. I have been reminded of this recently and had to remind myself that self-love is the most important thing. Without it, you can become your own bully.
I try not to make New Year’s Resolutions often. I used to make a list in my journal and look back on it wondering why there are a couple I never follow through with. They wind up on the list every damn year! This year, I am not going to resolve to lose a certain amount of weight, finish a number of projects by 2015, fall in love, or save a crazy amount of money.
