WHO WE ARE
Love Misunderstood Institute is here to educate you about bullying and how it negatively impacts the lives of others. Without the education of bullying, lives are constantly being destroyed due to the lack of knowledge of how it can mentally disrupt someone else's life. Our goal is to educate as many as possible about this subject to help you to understand that love is treating others the way you want to be treated.
My son and I were both bullied and are overcomers. Being bullied controlled much of our lives. My son was a twelve-year-old when he was experiencing bullying, and he had a classmate that was being bullied too. They were both being bullied by the students and the teachers. According to her, she had no support at home. My son was able to support and encourage her at school but struggled to support himself. She could not withstand the pressure and believed that her only choice was to commit suicide. I was also experiencing a lot of workplace and relationship bullying during that time, but I knew that I had to help and support my son, especially after his classmate committed suicide. While we both still experience bullying, we have learned to view it from a different perspective, use our voices to deal with the bully, choose to correct our own behavior when we notice that we are being a bully, and we have also chosen to empower others to overcome their bullying experiences.
WHAT WE DO
Love Misunderstood Institute was founded when I observed a young boy in elementary school, crying out on a video that went nationwide, about how bad people made him feel and how bad they treated him. He was saying, "People shouldn't treat you bad because you are different or don't look like them." At that time, I had just experienced the third bad job experience in a row. Although I had many bad workplace experiences, this was an eye-opener of something different. I had an epiphany at that moment which let me know this is what I had experienced for most of my life. I heard, "Now it's time for you to use your voice and speak out about this issue." At that moment, I made the choice to educate myself about this issue and to educate others about what I have learned.
The empowerment events will help you; acknowledge the bully in yourself, recognize the bully in others, in your relationships, the workplace, schools, and churches. The events will also help you to understand how love has been misunderstood and how to become a change agent of real love. We have a certified life coach, a certified forgiveness coach, and a certified spiritual coach, to help coach you through the trauma endured from bullying. We have speakers and educators to speak to any organization or group of your choice. We are available to do workshops and have created some online classes to help you recover and overcome your traumatic bullying experiences. Love Misunderstood Institute wants to help you understand the "why" behind bullying. What does it mean? Why does it happen? There is lasting damage done to those that experience it and never receive support and education about it. We want to provide you with tools to positively change your life and the lives of those that you encounter, daily. Bullying controls the lives of others and keeps their minds in a state of fear. Real love expresses the opposite of bullying others and teaches you how to genuinely care for them. We teach you the importance of love for one another and how it positively impacts the lives of those you encounter, daily.
