Back to School and Bullying: A Life Lesson

It’s another school year full of excitement, hope, and dreams of the future.  But for others, the new school year looms upon us like a dreaded rain cloud full of spores muddled in doubt, doom, and despair.  Once the rain cloud bursts, it engulfs those who dare to dream of a different world free of bullies.  But alas, the bullies are there, year after year.

According to Dr. Bria Bliss, author of Breaking Free of Bullying, “the more you worry about a situation or try to take control, the more you create a worrisome situation.  Your worrying actually creates fearful and negative situations in your life and your loved ones’ life.” 

In order to break free of the bullying in your life, you must first break free of your bad habits, negative thinking, and fake friends.  Take for instance this true life example entitled:

Bullying and Back to School: A Life Lesson

Back to School 2016

The first period of my life back to school:

I walk down the hall of my school to my classroom.  I see a group of friends who greet me. I slam into a wall I didn’t see. It isn’t my fault! I trusted them to tell me it was there. I am confused and feel unworthy.  It takes me forever to heal by myself…..alone.

The second period of my life back to school:

I walk down the same hall of my school to my classroom.  I see the same group of friends who greet me.  This time I see the wall.  I slam into it again! I can’t believe I let them distract me. It isn’t my fault! I need my friends.  It takes me a long time to heal by myself….still alone.

The third period of my life back to school:

I walk down the same hall of my school to my classroom.  I see the same group of friends who greet me.  I see the wall that hurt me. I still slam into it.  I’m in pain! It has become a bad habit because I need to be accepted. I’m awake, I’m aware of where I am.  I realize…it is my fault! I ask for help with my healing.

The fourth period of my life back to school:

I walk down the same hall of my school to my classroom.  I see the same group of friends.  I wave from a distance to avoid slamming into that same wall.

Even teachers get bullied.

Breaking Free of Bullying by Dr. Bria Bliss

 

You might have thought this story was written by a student.  It is important to understand that bullying does not stop at high school.  If we do not learn the steps to deal with it, we will continue to manifest bullies in our life.

Here are five steps that can help you transition from Bullying to Blissfulness one step at a time.

Step 1:  I am where I am today and that’s okay.

Step 2: Where I am, helps me to know what I want and what I don’t want.

Step 3: I release all the bad things (thoughts, habits, friends). I create positive thoughts, better habits, and like-minded friends.  Whenever I feel bad, sad, or angry it is a sign that I must change my thoughts, habits, or (fake) friends.

Step 4: Once I release all the negative feelings in my life, my source energy begins to shift and it expands into better feelings, situations, and friends.

Step 5: If I spend at least 15 minutes a day writing down what I want in life, what I am grateful for already, and positive things about me, I will have more positive thoughts, habits, and friends.
