(C) Bullying is a tragedy, a Personal Tragedy for those targets who become the dark focus of psychological abuser(s). Unethical toxic behaviours and the extreme unwarranted deeds orchestrated to destroy a target's presence here on Earth. It sounds unreal but to those who have experienced this cruel experience, can relate to this unfortunate fate. Usually for no other reason than the perpetrator(s) decides without consultation, explanation or permission to start a campaign of terror against a target(s), using the most dreadful, deceitful tactics such as coercive control, gaslighting, demeaning and inhumane behaviours. Their unconscious or conscious aim is to crush the target's purpose and passion for living, their core being.
Bullying is a dark force to quench the very light of the target.
A target's life, health, career, financial and wellbeing become the battlefield of the perpetrator(s). A cauldron of abuse, degradation, exploitation and destruction. The perpetrator(s) direct so much hate and bitterness at the target(s) and if this is not addressed and stopped at the onset it will have life long consequences for the targets health and well-being. The target(s) survival depends on their self-awareness and life skills to detach, and their ability to recognise that another person's inappropriate behaviour "is nothing to do with them, they did not cause it". It also depends on the level of support and conscious leadership that is in the workplace.
In a workplace this is where Leadership is paramount. Leaders recognise unhealthy behaviours, address and resolve it immediately. Leaders provide safe workplaces where employee's well being, safety is nurtured and promoted. Unsafe behaviour is addressed and resolved immediately. Bullying is not tolerated.
