Following on from my Instagram and Facebook story yesterday I really wanted to highlight further that this week is #ANTIBULLYINGWEEK and the theme for this year's event is #UNITEDAGAINSTBULLYING.
Bullying takes place at any point in our lives and in any setting. At home, school, university, the workplace and now, with the advancement of technology, we can be targeted 24 hours a day online. Many people turn a blind eye to bullying, often chalking it up as lighthearted teasing but for others this is pushing us to the max!
This year, more than ever, we’ve witnessed the positive power that society can have when we come together to tackle a common challenge.
For some the effect on our self confidence is beyond measure and can cause long lasting damage to our self esteem and in turn our mental health. One way to combat this is to set definitive boundaries and this crops up in nearly all of my client therapy sessions. Our boundaries can help set the limits for what we are comfortable with. it sets the tone for what is acceptable behaviour for us and others. Boundaries also give others some indication of how far they can push us, make fun of us and take advantage of our good nature.
You do not have to suffer in silence, whatever your age, it is not ok!
To chat further you can contact me via any of my social media pages or by emailing Demi@dstherapy.co.uk and please also visit www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk and find out more about Anti Bullying Week and the great work they do all year round.
