Recently I was a guest on The Empowered Whistle Blower podcast. Host Dawn Westmoreland brings in guest experts to discuss strategies to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children. This podcast offers tips on resiliency, overcoming, healing and other guidance to empower listeners. Dawn and her guests blow the whistle on tactics used to bully and discriminate people and provide solutions that create healthy and safe work environments.
I often called myself my own worst enemy, but something about seeing myself as a bully made me aware of all the actions against myself, beyond the negative self-talk and judgment I’d long been aware of.
Often, we think that the person who bullies us or harms us is the worst bully. However, there are times when the worst bully is our selves. It can be through accepting negative thoughts or not believing in ourselves. Nobody who ever called me names or chased me home when I was a kid was worse to me than I was. I’m sure glad that has stopped.
Perhaps our conversation will help you become aware of ways you bully yourself. Better yet, you learn some techniques to change that.
