Bullying has becomes one of the major issues for the present age, particularly for the teens. It is the intended action of verbally or physically hurting someone at any community place including home, school or the workplace (Wiedmer, 2011). Bullying activities often result in involving the affected into drugs, drinking and even suicidal attempts. This essay argues that bullying should be stopped because of the negative consequences it brings to the individual as well as to the society.
Bullying refers to the action of mistreating one or more persons by an individual or a group of people. Bullying may include the practice of verbal abuse, sexual harassment, non verbal behaviors such as humiliating threatening, and sabotage. As a result of bullying activity, the affected person become psychologically disturbed which results in the decreased productivity, disturbance in interpersonal relationships as a result of which the person gets involved in serious self harming behaviors such as drinking, taking drugs, and making suicide attempts. Bullying practice has been common at home, schools, colleges, workplaces, and other community places (Wiedmer, 2011).

Similarly, the observers of bullying event often enjoy the situation of the victim, due to which they may develop the urge for being involved in the bullying activity. This way, the bullying culture keeps on promoting at the community places and bullying becomes a never ending practice of the place. The participants of the bullying activity would also have clear influences on their future social and family life, and there is a chance that bullying habit would transfer to their future generations (Aki, 2014).
