Cut from the herd

This is my “West Texas” term, referring to isolation, dismissal, or rejection.

“Cut from the herd” is when one member of the family is excluded from the rest.

In nature, animals establish herds for protection against their predators and are safe because the herd protects each other.

It is necessary to 'cut' someone because of their poor choices, such as drugs, alcohol, verbal, or physical abuse to name a few.

Cutting someone for these reasons protects those within the herd, and helps teach the person who has been ‘cut’ that this behavior weakens and threatens the health of the herd and will not be tolerated.

Strong herds are powerful and regenerate strength.

Strong families are the same.

Have you ever found yourself cut from the herd?

Keep looking for the blind spots and building a better you.
