Garry, you are into the 2nd year of being physically and psychologically bullied by a group of white males but know, they are hurting, and it is not personal. The bullying will stop by the end of this year and know that not retaliating was the right thing to do, not only for you, but for them. Also know that it is OK to feel hurt, alone and at times scared. Feeling, sitting in and letting go of emotion will be one of your superpowers going forward so start practicing now as when you reach your 40’s the world is going to be desperate for people like you that are open and willing to role model what humane, connected, vulnerable leadership looks and feels like.
One other key bit of advice, know that the amount of money you make, the grades you achieve, the cars that you own, the houses that you purchase, the job title that you have; none of that defines your self-worth as a human being. They are all nice to have’s but none of it causes you to experience life one way or another. It is always your thinking that creates your reality so get comfortable with your thoughts and start experimenting and stay curious…. Always.
