    Unable to say anything to my colleagues when they make fun of me

    I am working in a government organisation. Some of my colleagues always keep making fun of me whenever they get a chance. But my nature is such that I am not able to say anything to them or counteract them. Thus I always feel dejected afterwards. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hello,

    You need to stand up sometimes and speak what is right for you. Your colleagues are making a
    fun of you and it should be stopped. You should speak to them and request them not to do such
    incident in the near future otherwise it would be difficult for you to maintain cordial relationship
    with them. Be proactive and confident in your body language.

    Bye,

    Hi aspirant

    Its really sad that you are keeping everything inside you because this is really bad for your work as you will be constantly thinking about those things and will never be able to concentrate fully on your work. So its high time that you go against your nature and let everything out. You should make sure that you tell everything that is in your mind to such colleagues the next time they make fun of you. Don't be afraid as you have the guts and show full confidence.

    I am sure that if you have self belief and confidence you will definitely be able to counteract them. Tell them that it has been enough time since they have been making fun of you and now you want them to stop this ridiculous and pathetic behaviour of theirs. If they don't stop now, you will have to go and report all these incidents to your manager and then they will have to bear the punishment. You hope that they know what is the best for them.

    I am sure this will be a slap on their faces and they will never dare to do such things again. Good luck and Thanks

    See this purely depends on nature of the person in such situation, some people are highly responsive while some are not.

    If you are not a kind of person who can give answers it is better that you remain away from them as it is in not your nature so at times you can get

    into much worser situation.

    It is not necessary that you need to give or counteract such people as it will show them that whatever they speak matters to you.

    You must give an impression that whatever they speak it doesn't matters to you at all.

    As they will see that such things doesn't effect you they will automatically stop doing such acts.

    Even after this if they don't stop and cross there limits, you should talk about this matter to your boss. Tell him that you are not able to concentrate

    on your work and feel stressed due to bad behavior of your colleagues.

    Handling things by yourself could put you in any problem so it would be much better that you let your boss to take any action.
