There are many times in our lives when we could use an ear to listen and help us through the things that we are struggling with. I can do that.

Yes bulling can cause problems in the future. Sometimes can cause people to overthink it and sometimes get a mental disorder (e.g. Depression, anxiety ect) it can also lead someone to getting an eating disorder, but usually low self esteem and low self image will be the likelihood and not nessiarilly as extreme as the cases I first said, but looking forward and positive always helps as bullying is mainly in school and one day will be over
Bullying can often be kind of traumatizing, and yes, it can be a part of you in later years. Our experiences shape who we are, and negative events can leave us feeling weak, sad, or worthless in the future. However, the best thing to do is to try to overcome those feelings and be the best you that you can be, letting the positive dictate you.
YES 100 times YES. If I wrote the word "YES" 100 times, could it be more convincing? Bullying not only kills enough teenagers every year for cyberbullying to have become a felony in many countries, it causes scars that are very difficult to heal. If the bullying begins before the child realises there is a way to end the bullying, for example in infancy, they can learn acquired "helplessness", which is a sort of hopelessness that leads a bullying victim to expect to be bullied and to expect no help. If you have a child who is bullied, or a member tells you they have been bullied, getting them onto an effective intervention to not only end the bullying but also to deal with its effects can CHANGE THE COURSE of THEIR LIFE. Without intervention, bullying can become a trauma that remains a source of low self esteem and leads to a cycle of repetitions of bullying and violence. This cycle only ends when the bullying victim finally learns they never deserved the bullying in the first place, and that they are not in fact helpless anymore, even though they might have been helpless in the first instance. Thanks for the question
it does to a degree depending on who you are. It can cause self doubt, fear, and lack of trust of others. But can be resolved by spending time with people that do indeed care.
Of course it can. When you lived years over years with people calling you ugly or whatever, This will never fully leave your brain. You'll always stand in front of the mirror, even years after and ask yourself if they where wrong or right. Well guess what?! THEY'RE WRONG!! Every single human being is beautiful on her/his own way. Bullying is just intolerant and stupid! Just tell yourself that you're beautiful until you believe it. This will help you live a happyier life. :)
Yes surely bullying can give problems in later years. The self-image could be severely damaged, your social skills could also be not so good. Also emotions from these events could be trapped within your body and thus creating a constant disturbance for your bodies different organs. So ... sure. But as always. One need to start where you are at this moment. So cleaning up trapped emotions, is as good place to start with. One method to do that could be "The Emotion Code" by Dr Bradley Nelson. Hypnosis with a focus on self-esteem could also a start. You need to set your self-worth yourself. And realize that you cannot please everybody. But you can try to please yourself, and those you choose to keep close to you.
yes, bulling can cause problems as it may still play on your mind and you may nit be able to stop worrying/thinks about it
Yes, it can cause problems later mainly revolving around self-esteem or self-image. When you're bullied, you perception of yourself seems to be affected by the names you're called or the way you're treated. However, most of the time all the psychological wounds inflicted by bullying situations can be overcome by working on loving yourself and being strong!
Yes, definitely. Bullying causes issues with self-esteem and can also cause nightmares, anxiety and panic attacks. Depending on the level of bullying, it can also cause trust issues.
It can only cause problems IF you choose to let it be a problem. You have the power and are capable of stopping it, by simply ignoring the bully. Most people bully because they're most likely insecure about themselves, and therefore choose to bully as a means to cope and make themselves feel better. If it persists, talk to a trusted friend, parent, teacher, or principal for advice on how to handle the bully. You can also check out our bullying self-help guide for additional information.
Yes, bullying can drastically harm a persons mental health. Bullying can make you extremely self conscious which can lead to other problems such as anxiety and depression.
Yes, it definitely does! That's why it is very important to fight it, before it affects more lives.
Absolutely! Regardless of if you are the bully or the victim, both experience intense and differing emotions towards the event that will remain.
Yes they can, due to you being more ceceptible to various mental health issues and trust issues. However you may be able to see the symptoms more clearly if your aware of what health issues you may develop.
no, but remembering it, makes us feel sad and we feel so bad about ourselves and makes us feel like we don't want to experience it again
yes bullying can cause problems later in life as the victim is often more self conscious and has low self esteem due to the bullying that they have endured.
Yes, it can. But I would say not to make it a linchpin. Bullying is not nice, in fact it is horrible.. But it can make you feel stuck, trapped in the past. However, it is best to remember that it happens to everyone at some point in their lives and more often than not overcoming the bullying enamels you to move on regardless of the scars you carry.
Bullying is most definitely upsetting, and it leaves us with scars that can never fade. It can go both ways depending on whether appropriate attention is giving to the victim, but in terms of problems, it may result in inferiority and inconfidence. Although these are undesirable, along the way we would instead learn about who are truly the people who care, because they are the ones who would support us while all seems lost.
As we know, bullying is never a good thing. It can cause a people to feel negatively about themselves and sometimes about others causing a multitude of problems. If you are being bullied, I strongly urge you to tell a teacher, mentor, or parent about it to have it solved as quickly as possible. To your original question, technically, if the bullying is extensive and if the damage is enough, it could lead to an inferiority later in life. This could be seen as a problem by some as it could inhibit your ability to do certain things. It could also not be viewed as a problem to others because it is not necessarily always a bad thing! To learn more about the effects, talking to a guidance counselor or therapist might help better.
Bullying can cause problems later on in life if not treated appropriately. Someone who has been bullied during their younger years are more likely to have low self-esteem, lack of confidence, mental health issues, and become addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Bullying can reflect person's self esteem in later years which is a huge problem these days. So when you bully someone think about if it's really worth it to make someone's life miserable just to laugh at them
Bullying can cause major problems later on in life. Bullying targets our self-esteem and self-image and if that is damaged early on, that damage can create many, many problems later on in life.
Bullying can cause lasting insecurities and stays with people well after the experienced bullying. When people are made to feel small or weak that feeling doesn't just vanish. It can make people feel ashamed of their interests or character even after the bullying ends.
Of course it can. For both- those who bullies and those who are bullied. Everything has consequences and bullying is no exception. It can cause real emotional problems in future, problems in relationships, with self-esteem. Whole bunch of problems I hope people won't go through.
Bullying can cause problems in later years. Some situations triger memories of bullying, wich can be difficult to manage. Some people even years after the bullying have strong memories of it, that hunt them in their dreams or everyday life. Especially hard could be nightmares, because they can affect not only your sleep, but also your functioning during the day. In those moments it is really important to have someone who understands you on your side. Someone who knows how to calm you down and make sure you are okay. And we should never forget people who love us.
