If you are surrounded by bullies – SASSY Sunday 9 of 52 – a day early

Get the fuck out.

you arent a failure and it isnt your fault - debbie happy cohen - joy based living.png

When I hear stories about how people (adults) I care about continuing to let themselves be bullied, it exhausts me.

I combat these stories internally with mindfulness prayers for seeing all sentient beings be happy and well.

I combat these stories by sharing blogs like this one.

And writing songs like this one:

And by creating as many positive, authentic connections as I can.

And by encouraging my friends and loved ones to do the same.

But it’s still fucked up. It’s still hard. It still hurts.

If you’re one of those people who is being bullied – I want you to know:


I wish you many blessings, strength and courage to leave.

Much love,

The Four Immesurables in Tibetan

The Four Immeasurables as a Traditional Tibetan Buddhist Prayer

May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering.
May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering.
May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close ones and rejection of others.
