BREAK THE CYCLE – Weekly Stand #29

You might not always see it, but even people who bully need care and compassion. People sometimes bully others as a reaction to their own problems, such as abuse or feelings of isolation or rejection. Being confrontational or attacking someone who bullies is rarely, if ever, the most effective response. Take that into consideration this week and say something kind to someone who maybe isn’t always so nice to others. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. You can start with something simple like, “Hey, I really like your sweatshirt.” Your kind comment can show them how kindness beats bullying, any day of the week.

Be the one.
