  1. Excellent post, Callum. As someone who was bullied in high school, I can say from personal experience that the impact of cruel comments and abusive behaviour has a major impact. My daughter is working on a wonderful project to raise awareness. Thanks for doing your bit πŸ™‚

  2. After my children experiencing bullying at school and having always taught the lesson of how important it is to stand up for yourself, I experienced it in the workplace.I learned first hand it’s not at all easy to just ignore ( they look for you); it doesn’t matter what quality you produce they will put it down and while I know that they have low self esteem and things out of control in their lives – it still created a feeling of fear and illness as I faced it daily in the workplace. What I don’t get is why some think making the lives of others miserable will cause their happiness to increase. A smile and kind word is what does the job.

    • I hope one day parents won’t have to teach their children to rise above bullying. We’re not there yet but with enough people making a stand, who knows what we could achieve.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

  3. I wish I had read this post a long time ago, when I needed some inner forces. This plate got her pieces together, but only by herself, not because those bullies helped her build her life up again.
