3 Steps To Help You Move On From Childhood Bullying
Bullying is never easy to deal with. Here are three steps to help you heal.

3. Let go and live in the moment. Emotional abuse at the hands of peers, parents, relatives, etc. is horribly painful yet as adults we have the power to change how we think about these situations. Acknowledge that those situations hurt, acknowledge that you were a child and not able to emotionally cope with these issues, forgive yourself and enter the present.

If there are still bullies in your life it's time to get rid of them. If not, time to let their memories go and enjoy this life you were given. 

 

Some of this can be difficult work because there are patterns and belief systems that you may have built up for years. If you find yourself stuck, reach out for help. Do you really want to let that bully continue to bully you through your own memories? Isn't it time to let go and seek to live a happier, healthier life? Isn't it time to change your voice to a loving one and believe that voice over one of hatred and anger?
