Despite all the negative effects of bullying, there are even far more serious consequences. People who have been bullied sometimes become so upset, scared, or depressed that they see no worth in themselves and no way out of their torment. There have been countless reports over the past few years of students committing suicide because they were bullied. Meanwhile, there are times when victims see no recourse but to seek revenge by serious acts of violence against the bully and instigators. As a result of bullying, people can lose their ability to love and trust, denying them the chance to experience a quality relationship later in their life. They might find themselves as a submissive partner or they may want to be completely alone. Compounding all of these problems, victims often develop eating disorders, begin to self-injure, or require extensive counseling. Social bullying can also leave people without a supportive group of friends that they can lean on and spend time with.
Even though you may be looking at numerous causes and events for cause and effect essays, it’s best to stayed focused and choose two or three of the central points that will help to illustrate your essay. Once you have researched your topic it is likely that you will either come across: multiple causes with an effect, a cause with multiple effects, or a causal chain (aka domino effect). Depending on which you are tackling you will need to identify the two to three key points for the multiples, explain each of them and then summarise how they came to impact or effect the cause and/or effect. It is important that all points can be linked together to show how they culminate.
