A Word about Bullies
a child I heard, "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will
never hurt me." Who was the blockhead that said that? Names,
put-downs, and pathetic attempts at sophomoric hazing can leave deep
wounds that never heal. As for me, I prefer being whacked with a stick!
If you are the target of such unwarranted criticism, remember: Every
great leader in history was the target of put-downs. Usually the source
was a wannabe trying to get attention. If you are someone who feels
put-down, bullied, or beat up by others, remember: it will end, you
will get through it, and you are not alone.
