“How my mother helped me to overcome bullies”
My mom was my hero all the way! Between the two of us there was a magic connection. she was able to share her heart to me without fear. She was strong , just and wise. She was love! My dad also had a great communication with me. I remember I used to read the Colombian newspaper every day to talk to him. Our daily conversation were endless. I guess I can say that there was not one day of their lives my parents didn’t hear from me one way or the other.
My book is not a scientific book, nor should it be considered as the only way to prevent bullies. The book is simply the experience of someone who underwent mockery from childhood due to the physical appearance. I tell how family passes from generation to generation traditions, behaviors and how families can get involved to help a child who is a bully or the one that is being bullied. No degree is necessary to raise a healthy family. My parents came from two very different upbringings. My father was an abandoned child. My mother on the other hand, lost her mom at age 10 and by age 13 she was orphan, but surrounded by the love of her brothers and sisters. Their starting was not the best, but they managed to raise a family of 8, with values, character and honesty.
Life is what we make of it. We either take courage to go on with dignity and decency or we let the circumstances take control of us. We choose what legacy to leave behind.
I started writing this book back in 2010 after my dad passed away. It actually was hard for me to do it, so I put it aside. This month is the first year since my mom passed away and I decided to publish the book.
The book is available in Amazon. Continue reading “She Is My Hero”
