It seems that wherever you turn there is name calling and divisiveness happening in our world.
Despite politicians, organisations and even churches espousing inclusivity, it appears that if you aren’t in agreement with whatever the ‘agenda’ currently is, you are labelled as a ‘bad’ person.
Free thinking seems to be a thing of the past and if you question things, you are called a conspiracy theorist. As an example, with the recent referendum in Australia, if you voted ‘No’ it meant you were unkind and racist. Clearly that cannot be true for the 60% of voters that said ‘no’, but that is what we are told to believe.
Sadly, this means that we need to prepare ourselves for a bombardment of abuse and name calling, which in the majority of cases is not at all warranted.
THIS MEANS we need to be strong! We need to know ourselves and our values and morals and not give in to the bullies. Most importantly we have to remind ourselves of our positive traits and qualities and KNOW that we are a good person.
Sadly, we can’t stop the belittling, but we can ensure we are equipped to be resilient to it.
