EXTRA HOT TOPIC
I’m still blindsided by some rather negative experiences I’ve had recently. This topic is really something I’ve been wanting to write about for a long time. I just wasn’t able to properly name things, and I thought it would be great if I could be politically correct. Otherwise, I may indeed be dismissed as some blabbering fool.
Let me start by giving you a definition of BULLYING and how to distinguish it from plain RUDENESS and the ordinary kind of MEANNESS from my friends on Pinterest:
A great PIN on EMOTIONAL ABUSE
The scary part: GAS LIGHTING and STONEWALLING
And the even scarier part: BAITING and BASHING
I know that we are supposed to DOCUMENT, REPORT, and ASK FOR HELP, but sometimes, especially when the people involved are those close to you, and they abuse you the silent, insidious way, it can be really difficult to document the abuse and to know where to turn for help. What I did was I stayed productive all throughout the ordeal. Now, I’m trying to understand the psychology behind bullying and psychological and emotional abuse. It is so I’ll know how to cope better. It is true that I did lose my equilibrium for some time (I let them get the best of me, in other words). I just wasn’t tough enough.
How about you?
Have you ever been bullied and psychologically and emotionally abused, whether in person or online? It would be great to compare notes with you.
