Bullying:

In our work, We regularly meet people, both young and old, who are near breaking point due to bullying.
This bullying can take place anywhere – in school, on social networks, in college, in the work environment, or in a training organisation. If not dealt with, it can happen for very long periods of time – even over decades.

In my experience victims of bullying are afraid to speak out for fear of reprisals, to the point where the victim eventually feels there is something wrong with them!

The experience of being judged, criticized, ridiculed and, in some cases, physically attacked by others always has an impact. Usually, the victim experiences intense anxiety, nervousness, self-consciousness and low self-esteem – and this makes it even more difficult for them to deal with this horrible situation.

Very often the sufferer eventually avoids social interaction to escape the conflict, emotional pain and hurt that the bullies create. The victim can then become isolated, lonely, depressed and eventually believe that they are different. Unless it is addressed, victims of bullying can be dealing with these effects for most of their adult life.
