Are You A Bully? Is Trump One?

We are all Bullies! You are a Bully! I am a Bully! And it is so hard to admit that because most of us don’t think of ourselves that way. We think we are nice. We are respectful and kind. And if you call us something other than that we will fight you tooth and nail, you son-of-a-bitch.

We measure how much of a bully we are against someone like Donald Trump. We don’t see ourselves as angry or as dysfunctional as Trump. We are not like him so we cannot be a bully.

Wrong!

We all have a percentage of us in us that is a Bully. It’s the Human side of us. The one that gets angry at the supermarket cashier because he packed your eggs upside down in the bag. The teacher who called you about your child’s behavior after your stressful day at work and gets you upset. Or the person in you who reacts badly because your spouse forgot to pick up the cleaning after you reminded them this morning. We react badly to things big and small and lash out because the Human side of us is often weak and tired. It causes us to say and do things out-of-character or so it seems. It’s almost at times an out-of-body experience where we do or say things and we don’t exactly know why. We lose control.

Each of us also has the Anti-Bully in us too. It’s that voice that comes to us silently.

Have you ever woke up after sleeping and suddenly that problem is answered or put into proper perspective? Have you ever experienced the runner’s high where you hear and think nothing and the only experience you are left with is strictly internal as if you can only hear the sound of your breathing? If you meditate you may have experienced that calmness that can come with it. You see that’s your Anti-Bully or Your Human “Being” working and protecting you.

Each of us is a Bully but we have the Anti-Bully within us. It can defeat any Bully at any time. Remind it to vote on Tuesday to defeat whomever you feel is the Bully running for President.
