In recent years, our society has made great strides toward being more accepting of each other, but unfortunately, bullying is still prevalent. If you or a loved one is a victim of bullying, you can always turn to our online counselors to help counsel you through it.
Bullying comes in many different forms. The advent of the Internet has led to cyber-bullying, where attackers can hide behind the mask of anonymity to ridicule others. People who might not normally bully someone in real life use this avenue to emotionally abuse or make fun of people. Bullies have more ways to hurt people than ever, and this doesn’t just happen online, it still happens offline too.
Whether the bullying is meant to be “harmless” or it’s meant to cause someone pain, it can have far-reaching effects. Bullying can lead to low self-esteem, body image issues, depression, anxiety, self-harm, and even, at its worst, suicide. A person hurt by bullying can start lashing out and hurting others, leading to a vicious cycle. If you’re a victim of bullying, know you can reach out and get help.
No one should have to withstand with any form of bullying. If you or someone you know is a victim of bullying, let our therapists counsel you through this difficult time. We will listen to your struggles and give you advice.
