I completely understand the intent of your commercials in bringing to light the issue of bullying. However, these “real life bullying” commercials may have some unintended consequences.
As someone who was bullied growing up, every time these commercials pop up, they do nothing but bring back long buried memories that I’ve tried my entire adult life to move from.
For most others in the same situation, it may be an uncomfortable moment that can be recovered from in a matter of minutes.
For those that didn’t quite fully get past this, I’m concerned what triggers, hidden memories, or worse, _buried aggression_ this may surface.
How a grown adult may choose to act on this aggression could prove much worse than what we’re ready to deal with.
I’m wondering if the commercials are worth the risk.
