Medicinal Deceit

Three weeks ago today, Mark lost his job.

It was no laughing matter.
But, thanks to a whack of relevant AD quotes, we laughed a lot that day.

Often, it’s not what happens so much as how we frame it.

This weekend, I did a hard-core search for a healthy way to look at braggarts, bullies and poseurs.

Thanks to mulling, sharing and listening to you, I think I struck gold:

Medicinal Deceit.
Medicinal Bragging.
Medicinal Superiority.
Medicinal Bullying…

I laugh just thinking these terms.

Bring it on.

(And, thanks!)

  • It makes sense to me, Andrea; nice excavating! I think that for some, bullying is reflexive and without intentional malice; the behavior tumbles out through unfiltered words and unkind behavior. Perpetrators, victims, and bystanders alike need us to name the behavior and proclaim it as unwelcome and unacceptable. Education and positive role models are also required. These are the tools we need to break the cycle, empowering us to effect positive change. nnCount me in.nn(Check out Teaching Tolerance, a program of the Southern Poverty Law Center, at
