Bullying can be subtle. Schadenfreude is a form of bullying.

  • Not offering a comment or suggestion, quietly hoping that another person’s efforts will fail – this is bullying.
  • Showing favoritism or making unfair comparisons, diminishing another person’s self-worth – this is bullying.
  • Choosing the easiest path at someone else’s expense, not supporting those who need it because it’s easier for you – this is bullying.

A lack of action, based in fear, is bullying.

The opposite of bullying is fast, decisive, helpful action.
