Bullying is a code word for emotional abuse. If you were bullied as a child, there can be long-term impacts.
I experienced some bullying as a kid and even as I’m typing out these words, I’m minimizing it in my head. “I didn’t have it as bad as some kids.” “I wasn’t bullied the MOST.” “Kids are mean and so it’s not a big deal.”
And maybe you minimize your experience as well.
But it’s difficult for a child to experience meanness. Imagine a 13-year-old or 8-year-old kid in front of you, who’s struggling to fit in but it’s not working and they don’t know how to fix it.
Gently place your hand on your heart and tell this younger part of you, “You’re a good kid and I’m sorry the others are being mean to you.”
See if the younger part of you can energetically take this in.
This healing might seem frivolous or like a waste of time but in my experience, it’s actually life-changing.
My younger part tells me to never put myself out there on social media because she’s scared of getting made fun of, the way I was made fun of in high school.
The more I can love and heal her, the more I can put myself out there on social media and help the people I want to help. Getting the word out about trauma is part of the purpose of my life.
So doing this deep healing work, can help you to move towards your dream.
Be gentle with these young parts.
