That is why I say there are no bystanders in bullying situations.
Those who think "It is not my business." Those who thinks that bystanders are innocent are wrong.
Silent bystanders are perceived as bullies as well by the victim. And if they do not try to help the victim than they in fact are on the side of the bully.
And if the victims behaviour deteriorates - than the real culprits should be blamed - not the victim.
I have been searching for some effective strategy against bullying for the victim for about 10 years but available advice is full of secondary victim blaming.
That means even more stress for the victim when they seek for useful advice.
Now I read that stress means memory loss...
Why is there so little advice which would restore the victim's confidence? Why is there so much advice that only puts more and more demands on victim's behaviour?
