According to Safework Australia, over a third of us have been sworn at or yelled at while on the job, and one in ten people say they’ve experienced more persistent bullying. The impact on mental health is huge.https://www.sbs.com.au/news/the-feed/what-should-we-do-about-workplace-bullying?fbclid=IwAR2eqIR-Hv3j1mHsS8VjGq3WDS_lUzkToDY9wn6uyItxrRbInUf6yec9XQg

If you are being bullied in your workplace it's no wonder if your emotional health is failing and your self confidence is fading away too. Workplace bullying is a serious issue that needs to be addressed for it has a devastating impact on our emotional health and well being.

In my case, I was too depressed and anxious to apply for new jobs and not in a financial position to leave...the only way out in the end was a complete mental breakdown so bad I couldn't function at all for months. Then I was bullied more by the employers insurer during the work cover process. I won in the end but what for? The bullies kept their jobs. I'm the one left with the scars

Happened to me for ten years starting 25 years ago, still to this day the person who bullied me to the same degree as yourself denies and has people believing I made it up. Because of this person I have not been able to work for 15 years.

Wow! 15? So sorry to hear that. I didn't work for 2 years and the only reason I was able to go back to work was because a friend employed me for a few hours a week which gradually increased.

Sadly your story isn't uncommon. Both myself and a former work colleague went through very similar things. Even though you are the victim you are often made to feel like the problem by the people who are actually meant to help you aka HR. And if you are lucky enough to come through the other side ok you've screwed your job prospects within that organisation as you are secretly blacklisted as a troublemaker.

It’s strange when you move into a new workplace and you realize the whole staff is being bullied by the boss. He rants, threatens and undermines staff frequently and everyone just collectively cops it. You can see the slump in their shoulders when they walk away. Horrible. But being new you feel you can’t say anything.It’s strange when you move into a new workplace and you realize the whole staff is being bullied by the boss.

Yep and then you see how the staff are bullying each other because they are brutalized, so you resign. disappointed face

Sure have. Hard to go to anyone when the people bullying me were the head of HR and the CEO of the agency. It’s been three years since I left that agency and still have side effects.

I have been there too. It takes years to recover but you will. Don't let them beat you.
