Some people are bullies by nature. Some are hidden in plain site. Some bullies are so subtle that you have to think about what happened before you realize you were bullied. Of course, I doubt that any of these types of bullies are even aware that their words and actions hurt. Heck…it’s likely that we’ve all been on the giving end of the bully stick.
Think twice next time you throw that dagger under your breath, but loud enough for others to hear. Second guess yourself before calling that person a name or judging them by what you perceive. Some people think that perception is reality…but that’s not always the case. Take 30-seconds to ask a question and err on the side of kindness.
There’s a reason for the saying “you catch more bees with sugar and honey than you do with vinegar.”
