How Bullying affects one’s Perspective!
The Feeling of Being Bullied!
Bullying doesn’t always come as what we expect them to be. Most of the time, we think that it is just merely for fun for both sides the bully and the victim. However, looking into the victims perspectives, it may appear as everything is perfect and everything is good but what we don’t know if that we see is the truth.
All victims of bullying will always try their best to show that they can stand the pain, embarrassment and the attack towards them, whether it is physical or verbal, to show the bully that it doesn’t have effect on them. Though others will see it as a “Joke” and not as bullying but it will have unconscious effect towards the victim’s behavior and self-esteem. This is true not only to school children but also at work and somewhere else. Victims will suffer one all of the following effects:
- Depression. Due to unwelcoming words or attacks that the victim receives, this develops low esteem that causes depression.
- Trust Issues: The victim will lose trust and confidence of oneself due to fact that he or she’s being turned down and neglected from the norms.
- Quietness and Anxiety. As an effect of bullying, one will tend to stay away from the group as a sign of retreat but still anxious due to the nature of the environment and the people behind it.
- Decrease in Academic Performance: Due to repetitive attack that the victim received, it causes too much depression and trust for themselves. This will eventually takes away focus and determination because of self pity and feeling of self-worthlessness. This will have direct impact to his performance in his field.
Eventually, the victim will feel that he or she has no better place in the group and environment and will results to retreating from the real world, creating their own world that will somehow satisfy the needs that the real world can’t satisfy (Schizophrenia ) or even results to SUICIDE while the bully is not aware of what they have done or completely blind of the sad truth of what they did.
Awareness is the key that will somehow educate victim on what they need to do and most especially to the bullies who are not aware of the effects of that they thought was just for “FUN”. Most bullying all started for fun among groups that will turn out into something that will create unwanted feelings among victims.
Common Societal problem, Discrimination and Compassion.
The society that we have is compose of diverse human population living with so many distinction from each other. The differences that divides every individual in human society is the boundary between social classes or even borderland among disability and races. Discrimination becomes severe each day, especially when lives of each individual improves. Everybody wants to be on top among others and failed to realize the true essence of humanity which is Equality. We can see other people showing mercy to other but without compassion. Greed lives amongst us. This drives everyone to ignore what others fill, and to satisfy oneself which leads to indirect or direct discrimination.
Effects of discrimination to the Society.
Discrimination, the unjust treatment of individual or group against other class of people with regards to race, sex or social status. It contributes to contemporary social problems which is detrimental to the growth of the society or the country. One big perfect example of discrimination effect is the condition known as Anorexia Nervosa. It is a condition where the patient tends to loss its appetite for food due to obsessive desire to lose weight. This is an emotional disorder that is cause by discrimination against overweight person.
That is just one example of hundreds of undesirable effect of discrimination like Alcoholism, Drugs and even suicide. This is due to the feeling of being unfriended and useless. It affects individual’s self-worth.
Compassion, The Key
Giving compassion doesn’t mean you need to show off to everybody that you have mercy to anyone. Compassion means solicitude or feeling the sufferings and mishap of others. Treating everyone with fairness and equality and giving them your attention the same way you give your attention to yourself is a big leap towards the fight against Discrimination. Giving someone who’s being discriminated, a chance to regain their self-esteem by spending your leisure time with them, proves them that they have the chance to leave a normal life.
While it is true that we’re not born equal but we have the capability to show to the world that equality is not by genes, it is the way how we see everyone in the society and we treat them the way we want to be treated. “Golden Rule” should always prevail over the “Rule of Gold”.
