“Adult Bullying”

I always thought that bullying happened when little and on the playground. Though this holds true it happened to me but in a professional college. There were two girls one was the age of 27 and the other the age of 43. I caused no harm to these women but continued to be verbally battered. It started off with honest confrontation of their dislike of me so I made a change and stayed as far away as possible. After I made this change they made sure that every day that I was public humiliated and tormented. I went to many authorities and these authorities didn’t believe me. It was physically and emotionally terrifying. I started losing weight, my grades started to falter and I lost sleep at night. They started to make phone calls to my parents making fun of my parents and our belief in God. Each day it got a little worse with them, making statements out loud to the class about me. These girls went too far. I had a couple good friends and a wonderful family to help me through this but there was just one thing. The authorities didn’t make a change instead they gave in to believing whatever these bullies said or did. They made up stories and I became a so called “liar”. I became very soft spoken and kept to myself after the first bullying episode happened, but it seemed the more I stayed away from any confrontation the more they battered me. These are adult girls. I didn’t know this happened at this age. From name calling to poking fun at my religion, I managed to believe in myself and make sense of things. I was there for an education and I would like to thank my wonderful friends and family for all the support. Now in the future if I see this happening to anyone I know how I can help. I hope people are aware of adult bullying that goes on in school, the workforce, and some cases at home. I hope these two adult women stop what they are doing before they hurt anyone else. Thank you.
