So much of my news feed lately is filled with this topic. Online bullying from @mrsconstancehall the actions of “trolls” from @kyliecamps and how she handles it. I can’t even fathom the idea of monitoring posts, the emotional turmoil, the heaving effect. As personal inspirations to myself, I take my hat off to you ladies everyday. And they aren’t even the only ones! And then I also hear the facts, of the effect it has on our children, on the next generation. I read quotes and statistics every day from @our.earth.wandering.feet to and how our children absorb our actions, emotions and words - majority of the time we aren’t even aware of it. As a parent, I am constantly in protective mode, I am always thinking ahead, planning, the next step, what needs to be done. And whilst you don’t want to wrap your children in bubble wrap - as they have to learn, to experience, you can understand why it does come to mind.
Last night being a final straw for me when the words were again slapped into my face of; idiot, horrible, ugly mug and many more. Slapped right into my face with Ainara present. With Ainara holding onto my leg as she could sense and witness the emotional turmoil I was experiencing. This is why I made the comment on my recent post, that your children hold you. Because they do. Your emotions become theirs. Your words become theirs. Your actions theirs. And whilst your children are individuals, they first off absorb from around them.
I’m not sure what I’m trying to say from this post; I think the rage is just pouring from me of how people are now treated and how it’s ultimately anticipated. The fact, that I have had to learn to stand and just take the slams and that we have to pass this, “to be strong, to not listen,” on to tiny, innocent beings - to our whole god damn world.
Bullying as a whole needs to stop. Physical, emotional, online. Every form of it. Literally every adult I know can say that they have experienced some form of it. THAT IS SO WRONG! And as we teach our children, our actual entire life line - we need to reverse the acceptance of it and if it can’t be changed for us it NEEDS to be for them...
