Personally I have a lot of regrets. They range from bad hair cuts to getting kicked out of college my freshman year. I’ve said things to friends that I regret; hurt people and I have made bad fashion choices (child of the 80's). Sometimes I ask "Why did I do that?" So dumb! So ignorant! I make mistakes, we all make mistakes…but we can also learn from them as well…maybe? Maybe not!
Over the last couple of months, I lost some weight, so I was excited to investigate my closet for "skinny" clothes and discovered a pair of linen shorts! It had been a few years since they saw sunshine and I was excited to wear them. I happily wore my little shorts to run errands around town until I walked past a mirror in a store and thought..."OMG, these shorts are U-G-L-Y".
Bullies. They are physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive.
We love to portray bully's in movies like Biff from “Back to the Future’s”, Draco, “Harry Potter”, “Mean Girl’s”, Plastics leader, Regina George., Percy of “The Green Mile”, Johnny Laurence in “Karate Kid”, the list goes on.. . We love to hate bullies and adore when they spur heroes to extreme action. In movies they are often comical or dramatically portrayed and they provide a challenge for the film's protagonist.
But life’s not like a movie is it? Bullies aren’t usually funny or go away that easily. Especially that bully inside you.
F-A-T. It’s a terrible word, but it’s descriptive. It brings to mind an emotional response as well as a visual one, doesn’t it? People might say, it’s not a politically-correct term, use “BMI limited”, “person of substance” or “gravitationally challenged”
