    How To Turn Workplace Bullying/ Prejudice To Your Advantage?

    Nope, I have no idea how to. I am a victim myself. In fact I was a victim today, for the umpteenth time. As much I got angry, abusive, irritated, disappointed, demotivated, used, fooled, prejudiced, lost in thought, feeling sad about my life, not given due recognition that I...

    I was bullied out of a job.

    The Scourge Of Workplace Bullying

    At my last job, I was there for 2 years. My first year was nearly perfect. I got along with everyone there, was liked, performed well, etc. Then, in the middle of the second year, I was basically harrassed by another person on the job and decided to press charges. Because this...

    Was made fun of by the ******* in my office

    today. How can I not be depressed? Apart from people difficult to work with in my own team, I have been tolerating gossip targeting me from ******* of another team but sitting next to me, for 8 months already, almost every day. I want to quit. No more excuse to stay.
