I saw a lady walking her dog
I saw somebody toxic coming along
They attacked her
She handed over the leash to her beloved pet
And let them kick and hurt him
Let that sink in
Now imagine the dog
Was not an animal
But the most beautiful part of any of us
And you have a choice
Yet still let others bring you down
Steal your power
The cold the bitchy
What would you do then?
Take back your leash
Erect you’re fence
*this is a gentle reminder about owning your energy. Taking back your power, raising your standards and defending your boundaries.
Loving ourselves and putting those healthy strategies in place is sometimes more difficult than defending our loved ones and pets.
Hence the analogy.
It is important to note that nastiness of any kind always shows more about the perpetrators character than your own.
Normal healthy people don’t go around ignoring or being outrightly rude to other people.
Normal people don’t exclude others or act with meanness.
Unkind behaviour stems from issues within the perpetrator and shows a marked lack of maturity and growth.
There are many varieties and levels of bullying. Unfortunately not everyone is in a position to have enough self esteem not to be troubled or deeply hurt by nasty attacks by other humans.
Seek help if you are unable to cope. I’ve left a couple of links below that may offer more information.
