Jonathan Martin and Bullying

I've been Bullied...

On a high school football team and in the workplace, in an office atmosphere and I can tell you that it is far worse in the workplace than playing amateur football.

Jonathan Martin's situation combined football and the workplace and I can't imagine a worse place for a young man to deal with this type of shit.

I only got help by going to the executive level in both my situations and thankfully both times I finally got results! We do have to get past this 'Snitching'  phobia in US society. We've got a little evil in us that tells us that 'telling on someone is always bad'...I guess it's our revolutionary spirit? Or is it just that a lot of people are friends of a bully and want to stay that way?

In Mr. Martin's case, I'm sure that many times he just wanted to 'cold cock' his bully teammates, but that would have cost him his job, millions of dollars, his whole life! Not an option.

I thank goodness that Jonathan Martin has brought this issue to the front pages because it needs serious attention.

Either he would have to join our gang or get himself hurt.True spirituality is a mental attitude you can practice at any time. Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The sad summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.If you let a bully intimidate you, he’s going to do it again. You’ve got to stand up to these strong-arm tactics.Check your child's protection at
