Overcoming your Workplace bully

Work

Bullying is an act that seems to have evolved over time and has found its way from playgrounds to workplaces, amongst colleagues, in colleges, in the neighborhood etc. Bullying has so many forms and until a stop is put to it, the victims will keep increasing in their folds. A reliable counselor in Orlando can help you deal with bullying issues at your workplace.

Workplace bullies are self-absorbed individuals that tend to lower your self-esteem, put you in compromising situations or make you feel awful at work with their actions. They mostly exhibit an air of superiority or bossiness with a nit-picky behavior or simply have mental illness or personality disorders. They are mostly stressed out and often transfer aggression out of sheer wickedness and pleasure in victimizing seemingly weak colleagues or juniors.

Bullying is a continuous process as the bully takes pleasure in the power he or she has over the victim. Bullying can be in the form of yelling, intimidating or humiliating behavior, angry criticism and personal insults or sabotage, emotional blackmail, vicious gossip or rumors or taking credit for someone else's work. Being a victim of bullying can affect your performance at your workplace, it can result in frequent headaches, loss of appetite, high blood pressure, insomnia, clinical depression, panic attacks and even PTSD, therefore affecting your overall well-being.
