Sometimes people think that bullying and conflict are the same thing, but they aren’t. In one way or another, conflict is a part of everyday experience, in which we navigate the complexities of how we interact. Typically minor conflicts don’t make someone feel unsafe or threatened. Bullying, on the other hand, is a behaviour with intention to hurt, harm or humiliate and the person targeted is not able to make it stop.
Conflict vs. Bullying
Bullying is different from conflict.
- Conflict is a disagreement or argument in which both sides express their views.
- Bullying is negative behaviour directed by someone exerting power and control over another person.
