quite recently, i have noticed that there has been a massive increase in publicizing the topic of “bullying”, due to the wonderful efforts exuded by persons of celebrity…

an issue that has plagued our tender footed adolescents for generations.

having been a victim of it, and also having been the committer in some unfortunate circumstances, i realize the importance of bringing this issue to the forefront of major media matters…

and because these situations have become so popular and so grave, they can no longer be simplified as “kids being kids”, seeing as how they do not only reside on playgrounds, but have managed to find their way into our computers, our homes, and more significantly, our work places.

for a considerable amount of this past year, i was holding daily conversations with someone immensely close to me, who was caught in a whirlwind of tormenting from a fellow colleague…

and it became so much of a problem that this person was not only in absolute tears to and from work, but was also terrified of unknowingly doing something wrong for fear of the backlash it would cause.

and that made me fucking volatile!

the average person spends anywhere between eight to nine hours a day, and upwards of 40 or so hours per week at their designated workplace…

and if said workplace includes other inhabitants/coworkers, then typically there are bound to be moments when certain people for whatever reason, may not get along…

and that is completely normal.

but when someone is purposely and ruthlessly going after another individual for no particular reason, and conspiring to make that person’s life a living hell, then it has surpassed the regular realm of simply choosing to not deal with one another, and feverishly made its way to harassment…

and that shit is just not okay.

if your life is so goddamn miserable that the only way you can cope is by setting out to ruin someone else’s, then you have another thing coming…

and that “thing” can be veer anywhere between karma to lawsuits.

as we were taught by our loving parent’s way before ever stepping foot onto our first schoolyard, “if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, don’t say anything at all”…

so kindly shut the fuck up, you stupid bitch.
