The results of bullying are all sad and painstakingly hard to overcome. It is time we all stood up to bullying once and for all.
London, UK (PRWEB) August 16, 2014
Stories of bullying are appearing in the news almost every single day and no one can deny the fact that the results of bullying often last for years. NoBullying explores the most common results of bullying in an article released today.
Bullying results in more than an emotional change in the victim. Victims, their friends, bystanders, and family members may each experience a variety of effects when someone is bullied in classroom bullying incidents, for an example.
A variety of issues may result when a child experiences bullying. Not only are there potential mental impacts, but a child may even become physically or mentally sick. Mental issues impacting bullied children include depression, as well as anxiety and sadness. A sense of loneliness often permeates the bullied child, and he or she might not be able to sleep. A child may eventually stop participating in activities he or she likes, and a loss of appetite may follow.
The impact on bully victims may even lead to violence. Further information from the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services suggests that a dozen out of 15 school shootings in the 1990s happened after the shooter experienced bullying when they were younger. Although all children won’t decide to turn to violence, the mere suggestion of such a result is evidence that bullying is a childhood issue that needs to be taken seriously.
Unfortunately, bullies often carry their dangerous behavior into adulthood by engaging in sexual promiscuity and leading a dangerous adult lifestyle. Just like the people they abuse, bullies are also likely to drop out of school and lead a violent life. Bullies may also abuse the adults in their lives when they grow up and be violent toward significant others and their own children.
Like other bullied youth, LGBT students may decide to skip school and participate in dangerous behaviors like drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and smoking at an early age. The results of bullying on LGBT youth also often include problems with depression, which may follow the children into adulthood and impact their ability to function as a successful, happy member of society.
Interestingly, the article reports that children bullied early in life have reported higher stress levels while ones bullied as teens reported long-term social awkwardness and a greater likelihood of self-destructive behaviors. Additionally, exposure to bullying as a teen resulted in different effects on men and women. While men might turn to substance abuse after being bullied as a teenager, women were more likely to adopt an aggressive personality.

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Connolly, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
