It is not unusual for children who were bullied to become bullies. We learn from our parents/our peers how to relate to one another. Those who do not become bullies internalize the bully voices. They often bully themselves with those negative voices. The results play out in their lives. They hurt themselves instead of others.
We can stop these bully voices. Stop, take a breath and ask yourself or the bully a CJ question, “Can I have a happy thought, please? or if you prefer “Can I have a higher thought, please? Stop those voices in their tracks. It does work! It sounds so silly. Have you got a better idea? Remember, We Are The Voices We Hear!
