This week I came to the realization that children aren’t the only ones subject to bullying. Adults can be bullied too. Similar to children, adults are also inclined not to report bullying. Adults often make an effort to blend in or befriend their bully. Today, I challenge you to confront your bully. I am not suggesting that you have a physical altercation with your bully. I am suggesting that you confront your bully face-to-face and tell them that it’s over. Let them know that they will not have another opportunity to bully, humiliate or take advantage of you. From there, I encourage you to take action. If it’s your boss, schedule a meeting with your bosses boss to discuss the bullying. If it’s a co-worker, schedule a meeting with your boss to discuss the bullying. If it’s your spouse or partner, seek counseling and shelter (not necessarily in that order). If it’s a neighbor or ex, seek a restraining order. In all cases, I strongly recommend that you seek God first. Joshua 1:9 encourages us to be strong and courageous. Be strong. Be courageous and put bullying to an end.
