National Day of Action Against Bullying

Today is the National Day of Action Against Bullying, March 21st 2014.

Today is an important day as it brings awareness to bullying in our communities – not only in schools but also in the cyber world.

This awareness is something that is very close to my heart. I was bullied as a child and I bought these feelings of low self-worth and insecurities into my adult life, especially as I became a mother. They stayed with me and the remnant of the bullying haunted me for many years on. Until I was able to stop and look within to see what was emotionally going inside which was keeping the past bullying alive in my present life.

I needed to deal with my internal feelings and emotions, rather than looking at the incidents themselves. To move past the drama and emotion of the bullying experience is a hard one to do, but a necessary step to finally let go of the past. Now I have been able to move past the bullying and step into a new confident and happier me.

“Finally I let go of that negative bullying I experienced and I learnt to love myself, just as I am”.

This is what my book, Beyond the Schoolyard is all about. It is a step by step guide of what I went through and what I have helped many of my clients go through as well – to move above and beyond the taunts of bullies!

In honour of today, National day of Action Against Bullying, I encourage and challenge you to do a random act of kindness to someone today, it can be a total stranger or someone you know.

Let’s start to share the love around and put an end to bullying. I would love to hear from you about what act of kindness you did today.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.
