Knowing your self-worth
Bullying is an issue that we’ve been dealing with for Centuries. My father, his father, even my great Grandfather experienced it. We all experience it in some way, at some point in our lives. Some experience it in school as a youthful teenager, while others experience it at home in a nasty relationship, or even in the work place. Neither of us are immune to it. It happens on the streets, it happens at soccer practice, and it happens to the people that you’d least expect. Bullying is a term that is commonly misconceived as a random playground mishap, but it’s so much more than that. It tears apart a person’s confidence, it rapes them of their courage and it causes serious psychological affects if not dealt with properly. To a Police officer bullying is no different than assault, abuse or harassment. I’ve seen it happen at schools, many times. In fact, I’ve heard countless stories about it. I’ve even experienced it myself. Bullying is like a plague that keeps circulating through our communities. It generates quickly and it comes with an incredible force that sets you back instantly. If a person experiences too much of it, they’re at an even higher risks of serious health problems.
In my experience as a motivator to high school students I’ve seen bullying take people in drastic measures. It’s effects can lasts well into adulthood. In fact, I’ve seen grown adults with poor self-esteem experiencing nasty health problems because of it. Tremendous amounts of guilt and shame can well inside of a bullied victim for years if not dealt with properly. It can be detrimental to a person’s life plan. It’s simply not a laughing matter.
