“People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer.”
Bullying has gone mainstream, we read stories about children being bullied in school and on the playground. The media has become saturated with stories about the victims and casualty of bullying. It has become a common highlighted segment in the media.
The purpose for this constant saturation is to not only make us more aware of the harmfulness of bullying but also to help us become more sensitive to how we treat others. We see this bullying culture extending beyond the playground and into the workplace but this is rarely highlighted. Bullying in the workplace can manifest itself through intentional sarcasm, witty racist remarks, gossip and malicious officer cooler chit chat.
