Don't Let the Bullies Win - How to Get your confidence back and find your rainbow

Don’t Let the Bullies Win: How to get your confidence, back is aimed at a much neglected group, the adult survivors of bullying, whether that bullying took place at school, in the workplace or in the confines of a relationship.

This book was written by a bully survivor and is part misery memoir/self-help and will aim to do exactly what the title suggests.

The emphasis is firmly on dealing with the aftermath of bullying, whether it’s still going on or happened years ago, and making the bullied person feel more confident using a mixture of chatty advice, humour and fun exercises.

Inside this book there are tips and strategies on:
•           How to stop blaming yourself for what happened
•           How to stop bullying and bullying behaviour from ruining your life and your relationships
•           Learning to like yourself 
•           Standing up for yourself, including how to say no to people
•           Learning to let go of what happened to you
•           Helping yourself to feel better without relying on others
•           Facing up to the bully

Also includes tips on dealing with difficult people.

Note - to keep the cost down so the book can help as many people as possible, Don't Let the Bullies Win is currently only available in eBook form.

World Wildlife Fund's (WWF) supports hunting shame

You thought the World Wildlife Fund was an animal rights or animal welfare charity. 

Think again. 

They support hunting claiming it aids "conservation." 

It says so on their site. Read it here 

They also clearly state that they are NOT an animal rights organisation.

“WWF is not an animal welfare organization. We support the hunting and consumption of wild animals provided the harvesting does not threaten the long-term survival of wildlife populations." 

Here's an answer to someone who asked why they were backing the Canadian goose (let's kill geese so we can eat them and stuff them in duvets) industry.

Personally, I think that the WWF is misleading supporters with their images of cuddly pandas and monkeys and talking about conservation rather than admitting that they are a pro-hunting organisation. 

If you agree, you can tweet them to tell them on Twitter at @WWF 

And that's how Veggiegirl2011 sees it.
