Bullying is a big topic in schools these days, and the impact of bullying in children’s lives can be devastating. What gets less attention, but which can be just as devastating, is the impact of bullying when it involves adults (adult bullying). Today’s episode is all about workplace bullying, what causes it, and how to cope with it.
From a Law of Attraction perspective, when we look at workplace bullying we’re really looking at the energy of the situation. Whenever more than one person is involved in a situation, it’s what we call a “co-creation” – the energy of each of the individuals involved is aligned to bring forth the particular situation. In workplace bullying situations, the bullies almost always suffer from some sort of feeling of inadequacy and they’re afraid that they are going to be “found out”. The victims of adult bullying situation are usually individuals who are very competent and capable, but who inwardly may question their abilities or who are desperately afraid of losing their jobs for whatever reason.
These energies then align to form a situation where the bullies feel threatened by these very capable people who could make them look bad, so they flip into attack mode to try and make themselves feel superior or more important. And the victims, who are already giving out the energy of worry or fear, finds themselves in yet another situation where they are forced to relive those feelings again.
