I think it's necessary to share my story because I want people to know that bullying can happen to anyone. I was bullied at my workplace for a few years. It was so difficult to get up every morning. I dreaded working with this select group of people. They wanted me out. I felt so paranoid and depressed. I expressed my concerns and provided examples to my supervisors; however, they told me things like, "This will blow over" and "you have to let this go. Just let it ride itself out." I left this work environment. I am discouraged that I allowed other people to dictate my feelings. You must remember that only you have the power. Do not let anyone belittle your sparkle. Your are so glorious, and no one deserves to put up with mistreatment. You should not be told to "let it go" when you express that you are being bullied. Communication is so important, and you need to speak up. You are so much stronger than you realize, and you will most definitely come out on the other side learning that you were always a lovable, adored, and worthy person. No one needs to validate your existence. Remember, you are irreplaceable.
