Bullies exist in every sphere; at work, in your social circles, even in family relationships. So how do you stand up for yourself when you are face to face with a bully?

1. Speak to someone

Bullies are very good at grooming supporters; telling someone what is happening will avoid a bully isolating you, leaving you vulnerable to further attacks.

2. Speak up

Fighting fire with fire may not always be possible, particularly if your bully has authority over you, but speaking up for yourself in a calm manner can often leave a bully floundering.

3. Document everything
