Hacks to help you handle the biggest bully in your life–even if it’s YOU!
Don’t Believe You’re a Bully?
For years, I had no idea I was a bully. After all, I made sure to read books on better communication and relationships, took all the love languages quizzes, and did everything I could to make sure I got along well with other people. In fact, I saw myself as a champion of the underdog and defender of the downtrodden.
And then I made a sobering discovery. In today’s podcast, I’ll share that discovery with you. I think it will help you and, if you have school-aged children at home, it will help them, too. Because I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with blinders on when it comes to the biggest bully.
We want to do everything we can to equip our children against meanies and bullies, but we need to help them in this one area, too.
