😱😱😱🤯🤯🤯🤯🙀🙀🙀WARNING!! WARNING!! SITE THIEF STEALING CONTENT!!😱😱😱🤯🤯🤯🤯🙀🙀🙀

Hello and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I having some unsettling news I feel all bloggers should know about. I know how hard all of us bloggers work on our content  then to find out somebody may be stealing it. It’s just horrible just horrible. 

How did I find this information out? I follow Basil’s Blog and get updates almost daily. When I read this before their main post, I was in shock and knew I had warn other bloggers. Basil’s Blog did provide the website and the site to check it is: Petzilia.

What you can do.  Ask them to take the content down but be forwarned, Basil’s Blog has tried that and were unsuccessful. Petzilia continued to steal content.  Good Luck getting your content to be taken down if it was stolen.

Types Of Bullying And The Possible Solutions To Stop Bullying

stopbullyingIntroduction:

You Should Kill Yourself. You’re Weird. You’re Different. You’re Not Pretty. You’re Not Handsome. You Can’t Do That. Your Stupid. The list goes on and on. Got your attention? I hope so because with the way technology is now days bullying happens more than we think. Another thing we should consider is that boys aren’t the only ones that bully but girls bully kids too.

Graphic Is By: forfreepsychology.wordpress….

These phrases could be considered bullying. Which type of bullying? The phrases I have listed in the Introduction fall into the Verbal Bullying and Cyber-Bullying categories. Are these the only two types of bullying? Sadly no. In fact, there are six types of bullying that can happen. The six types of bullying are: Physical Bullying, Verbal Bullying, Relational Aggression, Cyber-Bullying, Sexual Bullying and Prejudicial Bullying. I will be taking a look at each type of bullying, Giving examples of each type of bullying and I will also give visual examples of each type of bullying too.

Types Of Bullying

Physical Bullying:

Physical Bullying is considered to be the most obvious form of bullying. Physical Bullying happens when the more popular kids are bigger, stronger and more aggressive than the unpopular kids. Examples of Physical Bullying are Kicking, Punching, Slapping, Shoving and Other physical attacks that occur. Unlike other types of bullying, Physical Bullying is the easiest type of bullying to identify.

Relational Aggression:

Relational Aggression is a sneaky type of bullying that usually goes unnoticed by parents and teachers. This type of bullying is sometimes referred to as emotional bullying. Relational Aggression is a type of social manipulation where the people who are the bullies try to hurt their peers or sabotage their social standing. Examples of Relational Aggression are: Being told they can’t be in a group, People spread rumors about them,  People manipulate situations and They try to break confidences.  The bully’s goal is to make themselves look good-by controlling or bullying another person.

If we take a look at both females and males, you will usually find that females use Relational Aggression more than males.  A person on the receiving end of Relational Aggression Bullying is often teased, intimidated, insulted, excluded and ignored.

Bullying doesn’t just happen in schools but can happen in the workplace too. Kids as young as 2 years old can start to bully other kids. Why does bullying start so young and how does it develop? I learned that bullying is something that just doesn’t suddenly or mysteriously appear in young children. In fact, children bring with them a history of experiences with family, media and other children.

Cyber-Bullying:

Cyber-Bullying is when a person uses the internet, smart phone or other types of technology to target another person, threaten, harass or embarrass someone. Cyber-Bullies often say things they don’t have the courage to tell them face to face. Examples of Cyber-Bullying are: When a person sends nasty e-mails or text messages, Posting nasty and embarrassing pictures on social media, videos and websites.

Sexual Bullying: 

Sexual Bullying is when a person or group of people targets someone sexually. Examples of Sexual Bullying are: Sexual Name Calling, Crude Comments, Vulgar Gestures, Uninvited Touching, Uninvited Sexual Advances and Pornographic Materials. In some cases Sexual Bullying can lead to sexual assault and possibly rape.

I know for a fact that this type of bullying actually does happen and to boys too not just girls. I know a teacher who knows a child that has had Sexual Bullying happen to him. I’m not naming the child or teacher due to privacy and security issues. But do note that this type of bullying happens more than you think. Also, this type of bullying is not just in schools but the workplace too.

Prejudicial Bullying:

Prejudicial Bullying is mostly between teens. It is based on race, religions and/or sexual orientations. It is sad to say this can take in all other types of bullying. When this type of bullying occurs it is often severe and could lead to hate crime.

 6 Common Types Of Bullies

Bully Victims:

Bully Victims often rise up after being bullied. They’ll bully others weaker themselves because they have been bullied themselves. Their goal is to regain the power and sense of control in their lives. Other times the bully victim comes from a home life riddled with domestic violence or suffers abuse from an older sibling. In cases like these bullying is a learned behavior.

Popular Bullies:

Popular Bullies have big egos.  Popular Bullies also have a group of supporters and/or followers. They are often confident and condescending towards others. In fact, Popular Bullies often feel a sense of entitlement that comes from their popularity, their size, their social status and their upbringing. Popular Bullies are sometimes the school’s star athlete and is often looked up to by others since they’re perceived as leaders.

iStock-96961184-59f2410f22fa3a00114dc153

Relational Bullies:

Relational Bullies are usually somewhat popular and enjoys deciding who is popular and who isn’t. Often times Relational Bullies usually only use Verbal and/or Emotional Bullying to control someone. Mean girls are considered to be Relational Bullies.

Graphic Credit: istockphoto

Serial Bullies:

Serial Bully is systematic, controlled and calculated in their approach to bullying and they are often found in popular circles. However, adults such as parents, teachers and administrators usually have no idea what a Serial Bully is capable of because on the outside they may seem sweet and charming to authority figures but on the inside they can be very mean to others they don’t like. Examples of Serial Bullies are: They become fake friends to others and They are skilled at lying to get their way.

Graphic Credit: istockphoto

Group Bullies:

Group Bullies are either part of a clique or a group that just follows the leader just to belong. However, they usually act different when they’re alone even with the victim. Because children feel better when they’re in a group, they also feel less responsible because all their friends “are doing it”.

Graphic Credit: istockphoto

Indifferent Bullies:

Finally, I found in my research that Indifferent Bullies are unable to feel empathy. They often will appear, unfeeling, cold and have very little remorse for what they do. They get enjoyment out of seeing someone else suffer and getting disciplined. They are discouraged by punishment. Also they are usually brutal, cruel and mean and usually have psychological problems.

STOP BULLYING!!

stopbullying

 


Bullying

By: Crystal Stewart

Bullying is a mean way to

Gain power over a person

Who is weaker than the bully.

Although bullying happens more 

Often than reported, walking away

And reporting it are the best solutions

To bullying and hope anyone in a

Bullying situation will do exactly this.

My plea to everyone is don’t bully but 

Treat the bully with extreme kindness

And they will wonder why you are being

So kind to them when they are

Being mean to you.

So be extra kind to bullies.

Pets Overload has honored WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE with the SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD. Why is this award so special to Daisy Mae and I? Probably because this award is given to pet and animal blogs in recognition of a pawsome job from one pet blogger to another.

  • You must encourage the pet bloggers to shout out 5 bloggers themselves.
  • You must leave a comment on their blogs letting them know you’ve given them the spotlight.

I follow several good animal blogs so it’s hard to pick just 5.  Please note I will give this award out many times so if you don’t get the award this time you may get it another time. Since I will be awarding this early this month, I’ll be skipping March with the award.

MY NOMINEES ARE:

  1. Tails Around The Ranch
  • I have nominated Tails Around The Ranch because their blog is about a pawsome pooch and a the adventures of a pet therapy team. Helping pets deserves an award in my book.

2. Hands on Bowie

  • I have nominated Hands on Bowie because this pet blog is about a cat and deals with the journey of happiness and grief.

3. 4cats Blog

  • I nominated 4cats Blog because this animal blog deals with all kinds of pet issues than can come up at anytime plus I like the fact there are two types of posts and shops – English and German.

4. TWOspoiledcats

Update On Sadie

As many of you know I asked you to share, share and share some more. I asked you to do this because it might help a blind cat who weighs only around 5 pounds. I’m here with an update on sweet Sadie. She is still alive but the outlook is very grim I’m sad to say. I have been just told she may only have a week left before Sadie crosses the Rainbow Bridge. If you know someone who wants a pet and is willing to give them a forever home. Please ask them to give Sadie a forever home. This cat deserves it.

Choosing A Watch And Other Accessories To Go With Your Clothes

DSCN0423I received an e-mail from Jesse Miller and she told me that she was searching the web for information on choosing a watch when she saw a great post on my site. That post link she thought was so great was Cat Christmas Gifts and Giveaway .

She asked me if I would mention her Watch Site in one of my posts since I liked her site. Because she asked if I would share her link in one of my posts, She gave me the inspiration to write this post.

No I’m not the fashion police or a fashion expert. However, I do have 18 years of working at a department store. Working at a department store you certainly get an eye-opening experience working with the public, the people who are your co-workers and your bosses.

As we all know  what clothes we wear are very important. Why? Let’s think about that for a few minutes. Whether you are going to an interview, Out with friends, Going out with your wife or significant other or maybe a Meeting with your Boss, you want to look your best. You certainly wouldn’t wear sweats and a sweatshirt if you want to look your best.

Just as clothes are important so are the accessories and jewelry you wear with your clothes. Wearing a necklace, rings, earrings, bracelet, anklet, toe-ring and of course your watch. What does accessories do for the clothing? Jewelry can not only make clothes stand out but it can make an outfit pop. A good example of how jewelry and accessories can help make our clothes look better is if you notice two people out for the evening one is wearing jewelry and one isn’t. Who’s outfit do you notice first? Is it the person who is wearing jewelry or is it the person who isn’t wearing jewelry? So I stress wearing jewelry and accessories do help the outfit. That also includes outerwear. Below are some pictures of outerwear and accessories to match.

As I’m sure you noticed, I mentioned wearing a watch. But what kind of watch are you going to wear? Are you going to wear a watch with a plastic and colorful band, A watch with a clear band, A watch made into a ring or necklace, A Stainless steel Band or my favorite The stretchy band on a Man’s watch. Below are pictures of different types of watches.

Here is the detailed post on choosing a watch called How to Choose a Watch, According to Science – 8 Factors to Consider which  I checked out and found it very interesting.  I suggest you check her post and site out.

Once again, https://daisymae2017.wordpress.com suggests that you check this watch article out at How to Choose a Watch, According to Science – 8 Factors to Consider

 

The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties Book Review

DSCN0420INTRODUCTION:

Around My Birthday and Christmastime, I was fortunate to win a book by Courtney Livingston called The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties.  Now I can only imagine what you all must be thinking. Why would a 50-year-old want to read a book that is mostly geared toward the people in their twenties? Interesting question which deserves an interesting answer. I wondered the same thing until I started reading the book. Despite the book’s title this book is for everyone not just twenty year olds.

WHAT I THOUGHT OF THE BOOK:

This book was in my opinion fantastic. It was not only geared for our young people in their twenties but the points and ideas that were made could be used by everyone. The ideas about health, exercising, finances and much, much more. I found the book interesting and helpful to all who read it.

IS THE TILE RIGHT FOR THE BOOK?:

I will answer this question with a yes. Why is it right? I think the title is right even though this book applies to everyone the title The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties is right in my opinion because when you start young like in your twenties it help you continue the habits when you get older.

WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK?:

That’s an easy question. Anyone who can read.

LINK:

You can find Courtney Livingston at her blog which is on The Smart Girl’s guide to Surviving Her Twenties. This is a great blog so go and check it out.

WHERE CAN THE BOOK BE BOUGHT AT?:

The book The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties can be bought at The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties(Amazon.com) .

CONCLUSION:

Once you’ve bought and read this book, Courtney Livingston and Crystal Stewart kindly ask you to write a review at amazon.com and give your honest opinion. Also we would appreciate if you link to our blogs Courtney Livingston and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and also  at Amazon.com. I think you’ll find this book helpful and interesting. Happy Reading Everyone.

2018-01-14_00164180616

WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE was nominated to do The ‘Future Me’ Tag by Mabeautility who created this tag. The original post by Mabeautility can be found HEREThanks Again Mabeautility!!


The tag is about your future and what you would like to tell yourself when you are ten years older than your age right now. What the person then needs to know and what do you… Well let’s start the tag!!


  • What do you want your life to look like over ten years? 

In 10 years I want to be married or at least engaged. I want to own my own business or at least be co-owners with someone else. I want to be able to make my own schedule so I can be with my family and cat.

1255150164180616

  • What do you want to ask to the future you?

Oh Wow! I think I would have a lot of questions I would want to ask. Some of my questions would probably be: Did I get married? Who did I marry? What’s he like? Did I ever get to own or co-own my own business. Did I retire or get a job? Did I ever master computers? Did I ever master blogging and the technical side of blogging? Did I ever get a chance to meet some of my blogger friends? There are so many questions I have. Did I reach my short-term goals?

1255138940174331

  • What do you want to have her remember?

I want to have her remember that I liked blogging, I wanted to own or co-own my own business and that I’m proud of ALL my nieces and nephew.

12527727784880

  • Where do you think she’ll live?

I think she’ll live in a castle somewhere in Ireland. 

1253060-1039911199

Probably my flexibility and living with my parents and etc…

1255150164180616

Love Is

badge-smLOVE 1Another one of those weeks where I racked my brain on what to do for Positive Sparks Monday then wouldn’t you know it, it came to me or should I say the words came to me little by little until they just poured out.

Then I thought would my poem Love Is be a good Positive Spark. My answer came to me right away and that little voice kept saying was of course your poem will work because how much more positive can you get than love.

So this week my Positive Spark is on Love. 

LOVE 1

Love Is

By: Crystal Stewart

Love is a Mother and/or Father telling their children things will be alright when they aren’t sure themselves~Love is a parent cleaning and putting a band-aid on their child’s scrapes and then they kiss them on the forehead making things all better~Love is helping the elderly in the wintertime~Love is helping someone without expecting anything in return~Love is helping someone not as fortunate as you~Love is respecting the flag~Love is the compassion of a cat or dog~Love is a true friend~Love is someone willing to die for you and I to give us our freedom~Love is a mentor~Love is a Grandma giving you chocolate chip cookies~Love is having someone to talk to who is willing to listen and understands your problem~Love is a hug~love is a stuffed animal that can’t talk back to you.

So when you come across someone who needs your help, give them some love by helping them and/or just listen to them instead of walking on by.  Why? Please read the Bible verses below. That’s right, I said Bible verses. Trust me they are very helpful. The passage below is sometimes used for weddings.  A passage that was on a bookmark for my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding when they were married in April of 1992. 

Love…

is patient and kind;

love is not jealous,

or conceited, or proud,

or provoked;

love does not keep

a record of wrongs;

love is not happy with evil,

but is pleased

with the truth.

Love never gives up;

its faith, hope

and patience

never fail.
