And then the Lance Armstrong debacle came to a head and I must admit, while not surprised, I am very disappointed. I hate lying and cheating. I could care less who wins a race, but if you do it by lying and cheating, then......well, not cool at all. And bullying? It turns out that ol' Lance is quite the bully too. Which brings me to my point. My life parallels this story in that a bully played a major role in my life for a long time. Until I confronted the issue, then it became a dodging defensive game.
It is very difficult to confront and pin down a bully, somehow they seem to always get the upper hand. They dodge, and cast blame, and use intimidation. But I went ahead and tried, and it didn't work out as planned. I had hoped to make friends with the bully, but the bully didn't like me pointing out the bullying habits, so needless to say it didn't end well. The one upside is that the bully left me alone, maybe that's an upside..
So what to do? Confront. Do it, get yourself out of that situation, get help, don't seek revenge or vengeance, that is not your job. Take care of yourself, so that you can take care of others.
I hope this inspires.
