Does bullying cause problems in later years?

In the late 1990s, over 1,000 adults in England were asked about bullying in childhood. 828 had been bullied and 216 had not. Many of those who had been bullied felt that they were still suffering as a result. Many said that as adults they felt angry and bitter, while feelings of fear had lessened. Many felt that the bullying had made it difficult for them to have successful relationships. Nearly three quarters of adults bullied in childhood said they had difficulty making friends. Many of the men and women also said that were still afraid of new situations and challenges, and suffered from low self-esteem.
