People who know me well can already see the transformations I’ve been going through in the past year or so.
While working on myself has been a top priority in the past 10+ years, in the past I have shied away from doing anything too radical.
Check out my latest guest post on HavingTime.com about redefining yourself and letting go of the past, especially if you remember certain negative things after 15+ years.
If you’re like me, try some of the closure tactics I describe in my article. I’m curious if it works for you the same way it worked for me.
Also getting an apology from a person that bullied you in the past is super-strong. Definitely a must try, if you haven’t already.
I’m working on a bullying related post, where my hypothesis are:
- people who were bullies generally end up less successful than people who were bullied
- parents of bullies are unsuccessful themselves, maybe not financially, but personally; or both
- parents of bullied children are either conflict-avoiding themselves and believe in a greater good/peace, or haven’t resolved their bullying issues from their own childhood
More to come in a separate post.
