I am 26, and I find myself getting bullied, whether it is from a mean coworker or an unhappy boss. I am on the nice, quiet side so I think some people believe they can get away with anything because there is nothing to fear from me. I am more afraid of meeting new people because of this.
Funny thing is, I did not have these problems until after college. I don't believe I am unique: I think there are many who are bullied out there. I hate encountering this: it's not right.
I've been told having more confidence and not caring about what people think when you stand up for yourself (e. g. when you say 'no') would help. But I find that when I say 'no' is when the bullying gets worse, because the bully does not get his way.

Then keep saying no so they learn they can't push you around and tell your coworkers what they're doing so they can help stand up for you.0
