Are You Being Bullied?

                                       Be wise & cautious enough to understand it, and act?

The feeling that one gets, the feel of the unwanted aggressive behaviour by somebody else. The feeling that you are being intimidated by something and then feeling depressed and lonely. Something that keeps on killing you inside but you are hard to react because somebody is stopping you. Feeling like you are being abused by someone more powerful than you. It can be a feeling while using the social media too! The feeling you get if you receive some threatening message directly or indirectly. Or if something on social media is causing distress and filling you with fear inside. Going more into deep, are you caught in the “bullying trap”? Do you think you are being bullied and harassed by somebody while surfing on social media?

Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp etc. And other social media sites can lead to cyber bullying. By posting unwanted pictures, trying to threaten someone etc.One has to be careful while making friends on social media. In addition, people need to understand that whom they connect with on social media is a reflection of them. If you are friends with someone on social media, you are basically saying that the person can be trusted. You’re sort of vouching for them, so to speak, by the connection you have made with them. If you don’t trust the person to be friends with your friends, don’t include them in your social network. And from another perspective, just because your friends are connected with someone online doesn’t mean that person has been fully vetted as trustworthy. Don’t fall into the trap of focusing so much on accumulating online contacts that you let your guard down and end up connecting with the wrong person. Your decisions can have consequences not just for you, but for others in your social network too.

According to survey 25% people undergo cyberbullying and if you think you are the part of this percentage, be cautious today itself. Choose the right thing and make your actions and decisions wise.

Bullying can be verbal too. Verbal harassment is the most in number.Survey states 79% of people undergo verbal harassment!

Saying something is very easy but the impact it can have on victim’s mind is beyond the thinking of many people. “Think twice before you speak”, your words can ruin an innocent person’s life. Sometimes, it can have so much effect on a person’s mind that he/she can act psychic or can bring it to death. All types of bullying are equally disastrous. Its only up to a person how he/she takes these things, understands it and acts or not. Stop hostility, intimidation, abuse, and bullying in school, in personal life, and in the workplace. Create bully-free relationships with spouses, partners, children, teens, friends, parents, bosses, co-workers and employees. Stop wishing for your problems to go away.  Instead, take effective action.
