Day 18 – Let’s stand up to bullies. Share your experience. Or list ways to promote anti-bullying.
Its hard to admit you have been a victim, but yes, I have been bullied and it was one of the worst experiences of my life.
I was a victim of bullying aged 31. It happened at my last place of work and I left my job because of it. I am a little embarrassed to admit this, and I still occasionally get annoyed with myself (2 years later) that I allowed them (the bullies) to get to me. But I am only human and we all have feelings and our limits.
I left because I was fed up with the constant criticism, name calling and pettiness. I was stressed out and very unhappy. I could not change the way my former boss treated me so I changed my circumstances.
I was lucky to be in a position to be able to walk away from my old job and two years on I am so glad I did. I now will not put up with being treated badly at work and I will never stay stuck in a job I hate ever again!
