It is better to have a meaningful life and make a difference than to merely have a long life.
Bryant H. McGill
This week, I would like to share several items you may or may not have been seeing going on at Bullying Recovery, LLC. It has been a long road to get to this point, but the mission of the work I have been doing is finally taking hold with others. As you may imagine, the main goal of this company is to get the word out about the long-term damage that bullying does and help organizations and schools develop a more holistic approach to anti-bullying that includes a psychological component for both bullying survivors and bullies.
Several things have or are about to happen this week that gives me hope that the idea of bullying recovery is now taking hold out there. I’d like to share a few with you:
- If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the latest Healthy U Podcast with Stand for the Silent founder and father of bullycide victim Ty Smally, you can hear some of his powerful and meaningful thoughts around the issue of the extremes of bullying here.
- As part of the campaign to get the message of Bullying Recovery out there to a wider audience, we looked at working to be published on some of the larger sites that deal with health issues. One of the sites we think is great at what they do and reach a wider audience is called The Mighty. I was able to share an article there and get it published. I think the article shares more insight into what causes some people with a particular personality type to be bullied. Please take a moment to read the article called “What It’s Like to Be an Extroverted Introvert and Highly Sensitive Male” here.
- Finally, this week on Thursday, I will be speaking as Bullying Recovery at The University of Auburn Anti-Bullying Summit. The first opportunity to talk directly to those able to make a difference in their communities. This is a big moment for Bullying Recovery to be seen and heard by those that will be able to take action and help us with our mission.
There is no doubt to me that the issue of bullying continues to grow. I am looking forward to continuing to make that difference that started with creating Bullyng Recovery, LLC. Thank you for being part of the journey and community. Please always share with us any news, if you want to guest blog here or any other information and questions you have. There is no overnight sensation here. We’ve been doing this work for 10 years. Now, with the latest items going on, it’s starting to look like we will continue to be able to bring our message of there is help out there for bullying survivors dealing with the long-term aspects of bullying to a wider audience.
