Whoever experienced bullying at workplace or mobbing knows it is not easy to suffer from it and it is not easy to deliver outstanding work while surrounded by ignorant people who only desire to inflict one’s stability of mind and self-confidence. Individuals who are victimized by their aggressive co-workers, demanding bosses and evil family members usually, but not always, suffer from depression, patterns of aggressiveness and live under constant unbearable stress.
One should know that mobbing is not a proper way how things are because I know from personal experience that some uninformed individuals think that suffering over a boss who might not be in his clear mind – is a normal way of working or how things shall be always.
This is not normal, but many people are placed in a situation to endure bad treatment, not only for months, but for years. The best and maybe the simplest explanation of the term is written in Wikipedia. Mobbing means when only one person is bullied by a specific group. It can be family, like I said, but also school community, university groups or brotherhoods, even neighbors can turn against the individual for no particular reason. Online mobbing is the newest form of this despicable behavior.
It looks like a whole group is creating an unbearable environment for one individual, or maybe a group of individuals who are undesirable in that community. This is not only a quality of humans hostile groups, but also animal groups, like packs or hordes. In terms, the mobbing is closer to the behavior of animals, than human cultivated society. But unlike the sinister ways of managing the unwanted units in the packs or hordes, the human-hostile communities manage the unwanted units in more complex and usually by lawfully accepted means.
The laws related to mobbing and insults, like slander and lies, are created but rarely used to advocate this problem. In later years communities respond and recognize this sinister behavior and put it under the rightful protection of the law. The way mobbing works is usually by rumor, intimidation, humiliation, discredit and isolation of unwanted members. This is general harassment and has to be addressed and put under rightful inspection.
Mobbing usually has nothing to do with racial or sexual harassment, sexism or any kind of rooted religious behaviors, but it can lead to mobbing. If you ever experience mobbing in your workplace you should not endure it and should always report it to the proper authority, or your boss.
