Do You See the Blood? A Message to the Bullies

I try to keep this blog fun and lighthearted because the world can sometimes be a harsh and heavy place. I like to think of Crafty Confessions as a place to escape from this and just get lost in creativity. Today, however, I need to address something dark. Something that effects every single one of us: Bullying.

Whether you have been a bully, been bullied yourself, or have watched your child go through it, bullying has touched all of us. It has hurt all of us, including those who are doing the bullying. Today I'm putting out a plea to the bullies and the parents of bullies:

Bullies: STOP. Not just for the sake of those you are hurting, but for yourself. Every cut you make to someone else is a cut to your own soul. You may not see it now, but one day those wounds will appear. Have you ever cut yourself, but didn't notice until you saw the blood? Suddenly it hurts. This will inevitably happen to those who bully others. Do you understand what I'm saying? YOU ARE BLEEDING. If you don't stop to see and feel the damage you may not stop the bleeding in time.

Parents: Do you see your child? Your bully? They are injured. Don't ignore it. As a parent it is your duty to point it out. You might not want them to feel the pain, but if you don't do something the blood of your child and the child they are hurting is on your hands.

I also have a message to those who are being bullied: It WILL get better. I don't know when. I wish I could tell you, but just know that it will. I know if feels like you can't just sit around and wait for that someday to arrive. The pain might seem like too much, but hold on. Hold to your family. Hold to your faith. Hold to the knowledge that there are people out there that have made it through the same storm.  Stay strong and know you are loved.
