They say bullying is preventable.
Who is the largest bully in the world?
Bullying is one of the lowest hanging fruits to preventing suicide. For most of us “adults,” we are good at hiding this fact. Particularly adults.
How much money you make, how succe$$ful you are, how many sales you made this month, how much you meditate or if you have checked everything off your bucket list and have all the toys you could have ever dreamed of having, regardless of how many people you care for, darkness can happen and some of you may be stuck there feeling like you have no way out.
Take off your hats and masks for a moment and please listen:
We brush people off. We purposefully keep conversation light. We avoid confrontation. We downplay our disappointments. We skirt around feeling like failures and put up facades of being strong because we feel showing feelings and emotions is a sign of weakness.
Bullying is at its highest rates for adults while at work. Adults have so many sleight of hand to deny acceptance and approval for one another in the workplace. It generates a brittle and false sense of unity which leads to the feeling of being ostracizing.
Even in a circumstance where things are going well, our work goes largely unnoticed until we do something wrong.
Break the cycle. Invite your bully to a serious conversation, loving confrontation and empowerment, education and an executive order to lasting, inner acceptance and approval that will carry you through your most dark and tough moments.
I invite you to join me and 10 other people in a 2-day immersive, anonymous, virtual retreat.
