What was the worst job you ever had?
Is it your current one? Was it the very first job you had while in school, or just out of school?
Who was the worst Boss or Supervisor you’ve ever had?
Was your worst job connected in any way to the worst Boss?
Can you for a few moments, just pull out that Mirror you look into…you know, the one that doesn’t hang in your bathroom or on the back of the door or maybe on the wall in front of the door you walk out of every day?
No, pull out the mirror that doesn’t exist anywhere else, in any place in your home, except in your mind. It’s that mirror that you see yourself in honest-to-God-full-living-vivid-color which never distorts or dims your truest self.
Do you have it out…no worries about wiping the steam off of it, or dusting it to make for a clearer, cleaner image.
Now, take a real good look and answer this question, the one you know it won’t MIS-ANSWER!
Isn’t it true, that the biggest Bully, the worst boss you’ve ever had that makes for you having your worst job on any given day, past-present-and most probably, future–IS YOU?
No one has talked more harshly to me, put me down more, cursed me, beat me up, bullied me, threatened, embarrassed, made me feel more belittled, hurt or defeated than, than ME.
In fact, sometimes I wonder why I would ever befriend myself–I certainly wouldn’t do that if it were another treating me like I treat myself?
Well, I’m about to make a pact, and even if it’s for just a moment, it’s worth it.
Me, Myself, and I are going to call a truce and for a moment that might lead to moments, we are going to call an end to the Bullying. W E are going to make a concerted effort to get along and to pull TOGETHER, in the same Direction, at the same time for some time going forward.
W E know, Me, Myself and I, what all of the bad Self-Talk, the bullying, the threats, the put-downs the Smack have gotten, us, and, well, Me, Myself and I are willing to try it another way.
Now, THAT Mirror never lies. . .it’s about time that it begins to make sure I don’t either!
Join Me. . .Myself. . .and I to put a stop to SELF-BULLYING for now, forever!
Who knows…the Mirror just might show a Reflection you’ll really Love, and…so will OTHERS!
