If you have ever gone to a new school, worked in a large office, or joined a private group or club, you have probably experienced hazing or at least seen it at work. Hazing can be in good fun and harmless, but often times, it can cause a lot of emotional damage to the person who is the object of the hazing.
Here are some warning signs to help assess your situation:
If you think you are suffering from hazing in your life, you probably are. It is easy to justify it away to avoid any fuss or problems, but in the end, it will be better for you if you can recognize and accept that you are being harassed.
Ask the advice of your friends, and if they feel you are being hazed, listen. Your friends are the people that can give you a solid footing and help you keep faith in yourself, so not push them away.
If people make you feel guilty, blame you for things that aren’t your fault, or purposefully humiliate you, this is often the first sign of hazing. Contact your boss or supervisor to report this type of behavior. It will not stop until you recognize it, accept it, and report it.
