Awareness for self-bullying

Today, we want to talk about self-bullying and how it can hold us back from reaching our full potential.

Self-bullying can take many forms, from negative self-talk to a victim mindset. It can be caused by past traumatic experiences and can manifest itself through self-sabotage, bad choices, and inappropriate behaviours. The good news is that with consistent practice of positive habits and personal development, we can replace these negative patterns with empowering ones.

As a parent and teacher, I’m concerned about the alarming increase in anxiety, depression, and suicide among our youth and teens. These are all forms of self-bullying, often exacerbated by the negative effects of the pandemic and social media use. At Koryo Taekwondo Academy, we believe that children can learn empowering life skills such as self-confidence, respect, and discipline through our martial arts programs.

We offer a safe, encouraging environment for our children to overcome self-bullying, and we place a strong focus on never giving up, working hard, and achieving their best. As educators and parents, we can establish reasonable limits, keep an eye on screen usage, and involve our kids in healthy pursuits that foster their emotional, physical, and social development.

If you have reason to believe that your child is being bullied, look into the possibility that they are actually self-bullying. Above all, remember that we are here to support your family by offering helpful resources. We appreciate your confidence in us to serve you and your family, and we look forward to welcoming you to Koryo Takewondo Academy soon.
