Episode 37: Bully Culture

Oct 31, 2022


Does it seem like our culture is bombarded with bullies these days? Everywhere we look, there are bullies at schools, homes, workplaces, and even online. I have some childhood history of bullying, and because of it, I have zero tolerance for mean people. But that’s not exactly what this episode is about. Today, we will answer the question… why is bully culture such a threat to our overall health and well-being. Even if you've never been bullied before, I encourage you to listen because there is a fascinating twist at the end.

How do we get there? Well, let me show you.


 Together we unpack:

  • The constant journey of learning along the way (1:30)
  • My experience with childhood bullies (3:33)
  • Bully vs. a frenemy (5:40)
  • Mean girls at work (6:24)
  • Are you telling me the bully gets projected... WHERE? (7:17)
  • Your next steps in squashing your inner bully (9:33)

Bully culture is more pervasive than you think, and my challenge is for you to lean into how it is showing up in your life. Have you experienced different levels of bullying throughout your life? Maybe you are sick of how bullying has affected you and are ready to leave it in your past.

If you are in that place where you are ready to set some boundaries with your inner bully...   if you are eager to raise your hand and be ready to do whatever it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you until you can believe in yourself. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
