Colliding characteristics of targets and bullies that lead to workplace abuse.
Consequences of bullying behavior.
As parents, we want to make sure your children never experience any distress. But we’ve got to raise humans that have some tolerance for discomfort and distress. We can’t rescue them from that. We’ve got to teach them how to handle it and deal with it.
“Bullies are cruel and possibly irretrievable, but their anger and bullying behavior is often a displacement of their own lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. Mostly they are lost souls who do not know how to feel comfortable in the world. Their experience has been of failure, rejection, and lack of ability to function well.” – Cleary& Sullivan, 2004.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one definition of your life, Define yourself.
Passive aggressive behavior is often seen in
people who have not learned how to express their feelings, needs, and desires to others.
