Understanding Bullying & What We Can Do to Help

Bullying has always been a pervasive issue with young people. But, it can extend beyond the classroom and even into adulthood. It is a problem that is well-known and frequently discussed, but there is no catch-all solution because its roots can vary.

Where It Comes From

It isn’t always the case, but bullying is frequently the result of someone lacking confidence in themselves. They tend to bottle up their frustration and take it out on those around them. Additionally, bullying can potentially be the results of learned behaviors that come from their home or other people that surround them.

Effects on Others

Any bully’s negative actions have an impact on their environment and those around them. Their victims can be severely impacted, both mentally and physically. This can lead to long-lasting anxiety, depression, and other issues that can cause them to struggle emotionally, even years after the incidents have taken place. While counseling can help, some damage can be irreversible.

Not Just Children

While you may initially think that bullying is something that you only deal with in your younger years, the truth is that it doesn’t miraculously go away once you leave school. Bullying takes place amongst adults all of the time, but it likely isn’t discussed as frequently due to stigmas surrounding getting older. If you are facing bullies in your day-to-day life, regardless of your age, speaking with a professional counseling service can help you work through the situation.
