Bullying – The World Wide cultural disease. Is there an antidote for this virus?

Stop the BulliesWe’ve all experienced it. How often have you found yourself sliding into the accent of those around you? Spend a month in New Orleans and even a London girl sounds different. Spend a week in Liverpool and even a native Yorkshire man starts screeching his speech. How often have you found yourself laughing, dressing even walking like your closest friend? Has someone ever observed that you and a close friend had similar mannerisms i.e. sound the same on the phone?

Associate closely with a nervous, anxious person and you would most likely end up mimicking the anxiety and nervousness. Sit yourself in a room full of angry people and feel the smile drop right off your face. Listen to people complaining endlessly about work, and you’ll find yourself starting to do the same. How many of us have been shocked to suddenly realize that we’ve spent the last half-hour gossiping, despite our strong aversion to gossip? The behaviour and etiquette of others we’re around is nearly irresistible, including the dark sinister behaviour of bullying others.

In and out of cultures worldwide there is the search for inclusion for all. I have found that it isn’t necessarily inclusion for all, but an acceptance of an individuals characteristics and respect for different personal boundaries. The resources below outline such practices.

The stark reality of being a victim of bullying. On several occasions having been picked on both in and out of school I had felt like the animated kid in the video below.

It’s funny how bullies sometimes don’t even realise that they are bullying, even when they have ducked someones head under the water until they’ve passed out or when they have thrown rocks into their victims faces causing bleeding. I have been the victim of all these and then some.

Don’t become a victim.

Lets flip the script and become a hero.
