Dr Mamta Jainexplains coping with Sexual Har

****** harassment, unfortunately, is common in the workplace and in society as a whole. It can be both verbal and physical (leering and staring). Survivors may sometimes ignore you or deny their experiences and feelings and see you later in life. When emotions arise, they are often accompanied by embarrassment, guilt, and self-doubt by relating to what is happening in life as beyond their control. In such cases, it is important to remember that the offender is the culprit and not the victim.

Most survivors find it difficult to confess to friends or family because of the stigma attached to it. Some people are even forced to lower their voice because of the nature of the problem they are facing. If the listener is negligent while listening to your abuse, please remember that your case is not a problem and it says something about the listener and not about you, the survivor. Your story of struggle must be considered. It can help you see a good counselor to share your concerns and go for healing.

For the benefit of our readers, we write a few tips below on how to deal effectively with bullying:

Straightforward:
Face the wrongdoer directly and ask him to stop. If this continues, threaten to complain about the consequences. Make sure you are in a safe and accessible place at the time of the threat. If they continue despite threats, keep taking additional steps.
Note: If you are a young person reading this article, immediately without thinking, go ahead and confess it to your parents.

Strong Claim:
Search for other victims of your abuse. Their voice that goes with yours makes a strong case that can be put down or ignored easily.

Know your limits:
Harassment is a hard line to draw. What is acceptable to one can be considered immoral by another! So, when you feel uncomfortable with anything (e.g. jokes), feel free to talk about your discomfort right away to let someone else know your limitations.

Who is to blame?
Focus on this to realize that you are innocent and that you are not alone. If it helps, talk to a good and considerate friend or even better, someone who has been through the same and talk about your situation with them.

Look at your feelings:
Be aware of your feelings and emotions related to this issue. Is there an emotional barrier? Can you walk smoothly in life? Are you able to trust people in a balanced way or is it impossible to do so? If you think you need help, you should go to a counselor to resolve feelings.
