So if you saw what the title of this post is, you probably started to laugh a little. Bullying…bullying doesn’t have to be something that is just between kids, bullying can be something that happens between people of all ages and it may even happen more between older adults than between kids. The definition of bullying is defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another individual, physically, mentally or emotionally. Bullying can also be characterized as an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person.
Now when you stop and read what the definition of bullying actually is, it sounds horrible, it sounds like so much more than just a bigger kid picking on a smaller kid. The main place that I see bullying is at my workplace. The workplace is probably where most adults see who the bullies really are. and its terrible. Bullying again, is the repeated behavior intending on hurting another individual, not just physically, but it can be mentally as well. Something as small and shallow as picking on someone, maybe talking badly behind there back (gossiping), or it can even be the an invite that someone doesn’t get to go out and eat when everyone else got one. Sometimes people don’t stop and think, “what could this action be doing to that person” or “how do they feel about that.” We need to start thinking about others and trying to put other ahead of ourselves.
I told my wife the other day that we have a “perfect” marriage. Why? Because here lately she wants to give and she wants to help people in need and me on the other hand, I am a saver and I want to put money away for later. So she is the giver and I am the saver. Now neither one of those ways are right or wrong, but you need both, and if the world could just wake up and start reaching out a helping hand to the people around them that are in need, this community that you live in would be and could be a better place to live. God helped us and God saved us, so that we may go out and help others just like Jesus did.
