For some reason, the term bullying is not always acknowledged in film without whispers and further suffering onto others that might not speak up. Myself, I try always to see both sides to some situations, but in recent years of being on my local film scene full-time, I found it very stressful. I can only speak for my experience, but when it comes to being singled out by bullies or bullying during a line of work you try to enjoy, I experienced it online. Also, others were easily lead by such behaviors. I am still shaky and finding my confidence again to face up to individuals, but I am looking after myself, now. That's a Positive!! If you experience any bullying or negative behavior during work, school or in an environment that you have a social circle to think about... then follow my own tips:
1) Record any social media hate or slander!
2) Report to the Police or higher Authority!
3) Talk to a loved one!
DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE... It will hurt you more to suffer alone with zero support. Thanks... Please, stay safe out there!! And be vigilant towards others that might need extra support! Peace!
