What the Expert Says:

There are a lot of reasons why bullying has lasting, enduring effects. One reason is that being bullied is a repeated, chronic behavior in which the person doing the bullying has more power over the person being bullied. Being bullied creates feelings of depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and anger. If the bullying is not stopped, victims are at increased risk for mental health difficulties over time. This is one reason why it's so important for parents and schools to work together in order to reduce bullying in our schools.

Bullying can stick with a child into adulthood because it usually happens at a very vulnerable time in a person's life.  They are young and forming opinions about the world, and how they interact with their peers in that world, and their personalities are developing.  If there are consistently negative things happening during this time it will effect how your personality and demeanor will develop in social interactions.

Words are weapons that fester in the mind and affect our perceptions and behaviors.  We need a corrective emotional experience and need to let go.  I have an entire chapter in my book on healing ourselves after being bullied and am here to help.  
Life is to short to hang onto that stuff!!
