Today, be alert to bullying thoughts, especially those that are directed toward yourself. They might bully you about your appearance, your personality, your choices, your actions, etc. Counter them with the same firmness and clarity you would if you saw one child bullying another. Catch the subtle ways you may have bullying thoughts about others (strong opinions, competition, self-righteousness) and counter them with compassion and lack of judgement.
