What happens when the bully is an adult?!? An adult bullying another adult?!? Life hardened the adult bully out. Or better yet, what about the super saccharine bully who pours sugar over everything yet stabbing you in the back (passive-aggressive.... subtle manipulations)?
Bullying is not just a childhood phenomenon. Many bullies are adults who take out their life’s frustrations (or unresolved childhood issues) on other unsuspecting adults in the workplace, family gatherings (ugh blood related), faith organizations, or in the home. Adult bullies can be difficult to manage because often times, they are unaware that they are bullying. Their behavior truly may be subconscious (as a result of unresolved issues).
What can you do about an adult bully?!? Confrontation is a beautiful thing. Not all confrontations are negative, they allow you to confront whatever issues there are with said person. Confrontations can also be verbal or written (how about that..... no nasty grams doh). Avoidance ... avoiding does not resolve the issue at hand. Just leaves room for buildup. Make peace that some people are just injured souls.
