What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

I've Experienced Mobbing Throughout My Life

by Sara
(Zurich)

My story of mobbing is actually pretty long.
The first time I've experienced mobbing was with 16 in highschool. Nobody talked to me, I was excluded and I had to eat all alone. Nobody wanted to be with me. I had to change school because of that.

Later I had it at work, nothing was EVER good enough, everyday I was critisized and mobbed. Excluded, nobody talked to me. My work was never good enough. One girl told me straight into my face that she hated me, although we never talked. Another girl told me the same although I never said one bad thing towards her. They talked behind my back, spread rumours about me and just looked at me with this nasty look always.

Then I had it with a roommate, that insulted me so primitively that I am lacking words for this experience, I had it at another work and another workplace too. Rumours behind my back. Exclusion in front of me. I don't understand what I've done to deserve this. Everywhere I go, people are just super NASTY.

Something happened to my personality during adolescence where I went from an active outgoing confident girl to an overweight insecure one with bad skin. I made myself as invisible as possible in high school to avoid ridicule. It worked most of the time except I hardly made any friends. Everyone told me life gets better after high school and people grow up.

What a load of crap. It was easier to stay under the radar in college, but in the workplace the bullying was worse than ever because there is no hiding. I left several jobs after being tormented by office mean girls. Mean girls never grow up, they just get better at driving out those that don't fit in with their posse. It didn't matter how hard I worked or how compliant I was, they didn't like me and made my life hell.

Now getting another job has become damn near impossible because not only am I over 40 but I'm being blackballed by my last employer where the mobbing was especially severe. If I could sue I would but I have no money to hire an attorney and no witnesses.

Sorry i could not offer any hope my friend but what I can tell you is that you are not alone in your suffering.
