DO YOU REALLY
Bullying is when you repeatedly, and intentionally use words or actions against someone (or a group of people) to cause distress and make them feel helpless and feel bad about themselves.
It happens everywhere, from playground to workplace.
It affects everyone involved; the perpetrator, victim and those who witness it. With serious and long-term emotional consequences adding to the immediate harmful effects, communities that condone or ignore bullying may create an environment fostering more serious anti-social behaviour.
