Were you bullied in school? Are you being bullied now? Here is something to remember about yourself: Like this fire hydrant, the butt of many jokes, you are also that which brings stability and safety to the people in your life. You are a precious human being. And that makes you of great value. Dwelling deep within you is this this knowledge. You are worthy because you exist. Those who have bullied you are deeply insecure within themselves. Because they are unaware, unwilling, or unable to heal their own pain, they turn it outward. In you they have found a target, a place to displace their pain. It will never work for them because they have only increased their pain by hurting you. They must face their pain and heal it. And you must face your pain and realize that you are worthy.
