An Interesting Website: Bullied By the Boss

Posted: October 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hello all,

A slow, steady trickle of submissions is now coming in, largely thanks to Sinead O’Hart’s wonderful promotion on her blog and the helpful links and retweets by many writers. Let’s make that trickle into a roar! I am looking forward to reading all these stories.

I’m hoping to feature a few articles and links here over the next few weeks on the theme of mental health, stigma and power to whet your enthusiasm. Today’s link is Bullied By the Boss blog. Having heroically taken on a vicious and sexist boss and gone all the way to an employment tribunal, she now invites brief articles from others about their experience.

One thing that really stands out is how these people’s universe became distorted under the bullying regimes they suffered. How those in a minor position of power over them could devastate and undermine them. And of course, if you break down, you are weak. You are ashamed to be open because of your pride, and because you could lose your job.  Your world shrinks. And finally – at least one of the people who blogged made an attempt on their life.

As she says, here are the requirements:
  • 300 to 400 words (approx) maximum
  • Please make all parties in your blog post anonymous.
  • Think of your audience. Be clear about what point or message you’re getting  across.
