Bully (v) – To use superior influence or strength to intimidate someone, typically to force him or her to do what one wants. 

That is my every day; being bullied. Bullying behaviors, intimidation tactics, that would have serious consequences, if exhibited by kids, are commonplace in the business world. 

There are anti bullying campaigns for our children. But, really, adults these days need a campaign. There are far too many adults who have completely forgotten their manners, with narcissistic bullying dominating the space. 

The bullying is a chameleon in the office space, cleverly adapting to its surroundings, but we know it’s there. It is manipulative and reaps havoc on team morale. It breaks trust in the working relationship, leaving anyone in the path of wrath, battered and tired. 

Today, I happen to be so incredibly tired of having to deal with it, that I am going to bed and it is only 8:45pm; that’s how tiring it is. 

To the adult bully, it is time to stop. Be an adult. Be a better person. Act ethically. Show some respect to the people busting their asses, for the right reasons, every day. Stop being in the bullying business.
