We are harder on ourselves than anybody else could ever be. For a lot of us, our go-to action is to "beat ourselves up". We say some of the most hurtful, ugly, and painful things that we would never utter or think about another human being yet we think it about ourselves. When I was in elementary school we'd have anti-bullying weeks where we learned to be on the lookout to help others that were being bullied. But what happens when the bully is inside? Who is there to notice? Who is there to save you from this unseen but ever-present bully? It's time we had an anti-self bullying week. It's time we learned to save ourselves and stop this self-defeating, self-loathing practice.
