Self-Bullying

We second-guess ourselves with self-bullying thoughts and behaviors. Self-bullying is defined as being overly self-critical and hard on yourself.

 

You’re fat
Your accent sounds funny
You’re stupid
Hey ugly
Nobody likes you
Your dad is on drugs
Your mom is in jail
Your poor





These are not words from a bully but from an inner tormentor, yourself. We say meaner things to ourselves every day than would a worst enemy. Do not be your own enemy by convincing yourself that you are not good enough, it is out of your hands and there is nothing to do.


There is always some way to make things better with the inner you. Even a simple shift in attitude can make the difference between just another bad day in a so-called horrible life or a day of happiness and accomplishment. We second-guess ourselves with self-bullying thoughts and behaviors.


Gain control of self-bullying behaviors by treating yourself with understanding and compassion. The emotional scarring and difficulties with self-image leave a long lasting impression of insecurity within. No one is perfect... that is why pencils have erasers.


Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.  - Harriet Braiker
