Dealing with Workplace Bullies & Stress


How to cope with and manage difficult coworkers / colleagues. This extends to dealing with work bullies, stress at work / drama.
I’ve had lots of you recently writing to me on this topic! I think for most of us, we can remember at least one person we worked with who were “tricky” shall we say!
Whether it’s handling someone who is bullying, undermining, passing work onto you and claiming it as their own – perhaps there is just a sour culture at your organization and it’s impacting on your life: here are my 3 tips for dealing with it.
Bottom line is that no one should have to suffer this and any associated anxiety – if your situation is making your life a misery, take it as a sign to maybe move on to pastures new!

  1. If you feel left out and ignored, left helpless by your colleagues and supervisor. You are definitely bullied by this environment. If you have decided to teach them a lesson, try to excel in things that others are not capable of but secretly. If you have revenge in mind you won't pay attention to their evils. You just have one aim, rise above them and if possible show them their real value.

  2. Well I got threatened yesterday by two co workers that they were going to beat me up, so obviously I “snitched,” but my manager is friends with them so he ended up defending them two. I’m just glad that they will move me to another area, but I’m still nervous about running into them. I hate that my bullies despise me as well just because I’m the younger than them. I just turned 27 years old and theyre in their late 30s and one is 41 years old. it’s sad because they even go out of their way to bully me on small things, like if I get new shoes or clothing. I know that other co workers who also work with me complain about those two who threatened me, so I know that at least they will keep complaining about them two.

  3. Having to confront a workplace bully is hard enough after having to deal with it. It’s honestly messed up when you say oh the victim needs to be “mature” to stand up to someone tormenting you. You should be able to reach out for help.

  4. I would really like to leave my job but it has to be the worst time to look for a new job. My plan is to stay at my current job whilst seeing what’s out there, refining and updating my resume, apply for companies that I would truly like to work at and start establishing side hustles that I’ve had in mind for a while. That way even if I don’t get to change my job this year, at least I’ve taken some positive steps. Do you have any advice for dealing with work stress during the current pandemic situation, as I definitely feel like my work stress is much worse than it was pre COVID (and it was already getting very bad pre COVID)?

  5. Sophie Shohet is the best channel for mindset videos and teaching us how to be the best version of ourselves possible 🙌🏻 I actually created my own channel, ‘Taylor Victoria’, to show even MORE videos like this 🤗 Come and check it out and I will always follow back 😄

  6. My workplace bullies were my former work supervisor, and my former friend who I also worked with when I was a security officer. They both went all out to tear me down, undermine me, and browbeat me into submission, and I reacted – I tried to stand up for myself, tell them they were wrong, but it always fell on deaf ears, like I was talking to a brick wall. I did everything to try to be better, and to bring myself to a level that they wanted me to be at, but no matter what, they would never give me the chance to show that I was all in for the job and the team. One day, I just woke up and said enough was enough, and I spoke to my manager, asking for a transfer. The biggest insult I got when that happened, was when my friend came to me, telling me that I was making a "big mistake", despite the fact that he was part of the problem, making personal remarks about my size, and me as a person entirely, not just face to face, but by email, text, and social media, and now he wants me to stay, and work hard, and hustle through it? Nah mate….

    Ultimately I got my transfer, but not before my friend left the company. And we haven't spoke face to face, in about two years. I also blocked him from everything, so I never get to hear his poison again.

    Sometimes, people are in your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime, in my case, and it is up to you how you handle it. I do regret the situation for how it transpired, because I wasn't strong enough to handle it in the first place, but since then, I have been going all out to find out how to handle myself, should the situation happen again.

  7. They have demons in them doing it to destroy lives. The person they are bullying was happy, moving forward etc but then all of a sudden you get this demon to stop you from doing what God appointed that person to do. Then you end up with that bullied person feeling worthless and can't move on. They tell management who do jack. This is more serious that people take it.

  8. Btw, it was due to racism, n my dissablities , I personally loved my work, it was my purpose n that was my life, I love my work my speciality is ob/gyn, I been lost since I left that job

  9. I used to work for the county of San Bernardino, for almost ten years n suffered.severe management harrasment.mental emotional and on one occasion physical abuse, the union and Human resources knew I kept reporting it, got sevrr PTSD due to it and the last 3 years things got super severe..n I was by the time I had left I have a thick employee file due to me reporting the issues n the supervisors n charge nurses.would retaliate m made me look really really bad, that resigning the county caused for me not to be able to find suitable employment, n when I did the harrasment been unemployed at 52 things for worse now I have no car no self esteem n I'mbeen working hard past four years to heal my my age people now treat me like if I am deserved it..

  10. I am socially awkward and have to deal with the repercussions of not fitting into work culture. As a result im bullied for it. Sometime my supervisor will intentionally withhold information related to a time sensitive task. So when its done incorrectly guess who gets the heat… Me. So i have been writing down everything and saving my emails. Its rediculous when time used putting in good work is lost watching your back.

  11. You really have two choices: leave or confront them. If you don't do either of these, they will simply continue and your mental and physical health will be compromised.

  12. Hello. I wonder whether you have any advice on how to deal with bullying WITHIN a union? This entertainment industry union is actually supporting a woman who has manipulated everyone around her to believe her lies and dislike me. Its potentially ruining my career as well as my life. The woman is a complete narcissist and I feel failed by my union, who should be trying to supporting me. I'm in the UK as well but in desperate need of advice as nobody is listening.

  13. I definitely agree with you. I think it's very smart and wise to confront the person. I also believe someone with a strong will to say, I will continue to work hard and let him fry would be another option. There can be another way of looking at situations like this. Allowing it to build your character. But to a certain degree. There should be a level where if the line is crossed to confront with no fear.
