Bullying is one of the worst experiences in the person’s life. No matter on which side the person stands: the initiator’s, the bystander’s or the “victim’s”, he or she always experiences negative emotions in this situation. These are fear, despair, pain, hostility, leading to psychological and sometimes even physical self-destruction. It is very important to announce the message that bullying is not a given, that bullying does not “harden” the person, that not everyone can defend oneself and that bullies themselves are usually the ones who are harmed, unhappy and who are also in need of help. Therefore, let us not remain indifferent – let us observe, prevent and educate.
