How do you deal with adult bullies in real life?
This topic keeps coming up everywhere I go. Clearly, the Lord is trying to tell me something.
How do you deal with someone who is rude, controlling, and/or degrading in your real life?
I’ve found it very easy to set boundaries online but when it comes into my sphere in the real world, I clam up and struggle with what to say and how to react.
We teach our kids to go for help when they are being bullied and most schools have a no bully policy but when it comes to adults, there is no help. If a class was offered on this subject, I would take it!
Several bloggers and I have decided to try and tackle this. You can check out Scarred Seeker’s post, Living With Bullies. We are looking for advice and guest posters in dealing with the subject of bullying for adults.
Do you ever struggle with this situation? Does standing up for yourself make you feel like a jerk? Please feel free to leave comments! Your input might help someone else – myself included.
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Colossians 4:6
