This is NOT ok.

Ladies & Gents,

This is NOT ok. And by THIS, I am referring to bullying.

Bullying of any sorts is NOT ok. Putting others down through words and/or actions in attempts to gain power and have control is NOT ok.

For some of you out there, you may think that bullying is just child’s play. The reality is, bullying happens to the youngest in our society right through to the eldest. It happens on our playgrounds, in our schools, over social media, at workplaces and even in homes. And this is NOT ok.

To those reading this right now, I want you to know that YOU MATTER. Your life matters.

The choices you make, the actions you take, the words you use, and the life you lead…it all matters.

They say “hurt people, hurt people.” Well if that’s the case, we need to stop hurting people one word, one action, one moment at a time and start healing the wounds we’ve created one word, one action, one moment at a time.

If you want to see an end to bullying of any sorts, make a commitment from this moment on to remind those in your life that they matter. From this moment on, may your words, actions, and life reflect Love, Connection, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Hope.

Those who master others are strong;

Those who master themselves have true power.

-Lao Tzu
