Self-Esteem: Reclaiming Your Life

Food for thought:  If you reading this because you are a victim of workplace bullying, the one piece of advice I would give you, which should be your foundation for “recovery”, is (re)build your self-esteem.   Yes, holding on to or rebuilding your self-esteem is the one component that acts as the indicator of how well you will rise above your work situation when the bullying ends.

If every day you are either trashed by your workplace bully or are anticipating the next attack, it can wear you down.  It therefore makes sense that you rebuild and replenish how you feel about yourself and not buy into what the bully says or does.

The bottom line is that no matter what the bully’s agenda may be, it is imperative that you take care of yourself and your own well-being.  The bully thrives on breaking you down, but you triumph by maintaining a healthy opinion of your own self worth.  Image

I would suggest the book Six Pillars of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden.  This is not by far the newest book on the subject but it provides a lot of rich information to help you reconsider what you have been feeling as a result of the torment you’ve been receiving at work. It also provides realistic steps to repair the emotional damage.

We are all here for a reason. We are valuable individuals who make this world a richer place. We should strive to hold a positive picture of ourselves in our minds and not give one person the power over how we feel about ourselves.
