The article analyzes adult bullying, the repeated behavior of aggressive or subtle manipulation, harassment and intimidation by one person toward another that can kill the victim's spirit. The bullies' very low sense of self-worth reportedly makes them act the way they do, but bullies and victims are noted to have been both bullied as children. It is stated that a bully's abuse has to be acknowledged, documented and discussed with the bully, and that one has to assert one's self without getting physical.
