“Billy Is A Bully” written and performed by Mark Shepard
“In order for a Bully to exist, he or she must have a victim. As a kid growing up I provided that service to a wide range of bullies. I was not aware that there were certain thoughts and actions I was engaging in that attracted bullies and teasing.
It was my timidity. My tendency to get my feelings hurt easily. It was my passiveness. When I started standing up for my self they started backing off. Strangely enough many of my former bullies wanted to be my friend once I stopped allowing them to push me around. Huh!?!
Please understand me. I am not in any shape or form advocating fighting as a solution to bullying.
I am advocating learning how to stand up for yourself in ways that no longer invite aggression.
The process first starts with you. Inside you. By changing how we perceive of bullies we can change our habitual, internal reactions leading to more effective behaviors.
If we understand what creates a bully then we can learn how to defuse him or her.
If we understand how our own behavior attracts bullies we can change that.
I also teach audiences some “Modern Jedi Mind Mastery” tools that can help defuse any bullying situation for the rest of their lives.”
