Bullying and Health

Bullying. It’s a normal part of growing up and going to school—and then we all move on. Well, that’s what a lot of us think, but it couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Research shows that being bullied can lead to emotional and behavioral problems, plus cripple basic life skills—years after your last report card. The effects damaged social skills, employment, and even led to greater levels of depression and anxiety.

Maybe you were bullied.

So how can a study about your past help you now? It can be a wakeup call to get help. Repressed anger, shame, or other emotions can be dealt with successfully. Healing from low self-esteem and other wounds can be a reality. Talk to a pastor, a counselor, or start with a trusted friend. Your past doesn’t have to bully you anymore.
