Having been born without limbs, Nick Vujicic has been a target for bullying from a very young age. When he was a teenager he spent a lot of time trying to understand the motives behind the bullies’ actions and why they’d pick him as their target. Finally he realized that it was not his problems but the bully's own problems that evoked the aggression in them. This didn’t make things any less hard, but he learned that he doesn’t have to play the bully’s game–and neither do you. In his book Stand Strong Nick he presents the readers with strategies for developing a “bully defense system,” so that they can handle bullies of all kinds by building their strength from the inside out. Here are some of the things you can do to build up your own “bully defense system”: 1. figuring out who you are so no bully can tell you differently or make you feel badly; 2. taking responsibility for your own behavior and happiness so bullies have no ultimate power over you; 3. establishing strong values that no bully can shake; 4. creating a safety zone within yourself where you can go mentally to draw strength and comfort; 5. building strong and supportive relationships to stand up for you against bullies; 6. learning to monitor and manage your responses to the emotions triggered by bullying; 7. developing a spiritual foundation to help you be at peace and be strong against bullying; 8. taking the opportunity to learn from your bullying experience so that you can become stronger, wiser, more confident, more faith filled, and more prepared to handle any challenges; 9. creating your bully defense strategy so you are prepared to handle bullies of all kinds; and 10. mastering empathy so you are aware of the needs of others and serve them whenever possible to help them overcome bullying. We think these are great words from an amazing individual!
