Anyone who knows me, knows that I am severely anti-bullying and I always stick up for the bullied people in the world. I was bullied in school and it was very rough for me. It takes its toll on your self worth and also can send you into a downward spiral of depression.
There are children, teens, and adults that still go home and are bullied again.
When they become adults, it becomes easy for them to get into bad relationships that are dysfunction because that is all they know or that is all they believe that they deserve.
However, now we have workplace bullies. Adults that purposefully cause drama at the office or start pitting people against each other. Sure, you could go to Human Resources, but then you are suddenly the bad guy. Human Resources is not there to protect the employee. They are there to protect the company only.
I work in an environment where I am bullied, yet nothing happens except some desk moves. I did not even cause the desk moves, yet I am seen as the person that did. This has snowballed into quite a fiasco at the office. It would be nice to have some professionalism and for adults to behave like adults. The best that I can hope for is that it is seen by someone else and reported. Actually, it was and that is how the desk move situation started. However, it is now much worse.
