Even the Best of Us Get Bullied

It turns out that even the most unlikely people were bullied in their day. According to a Yahoo article, all kinds of bombshell celebrities were bullied as kids for being different. Both studs from the Twilight series, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, were picked on for their passion for acting. Powerhouse singer Christina Aguilera was taunted for pursuing her music career. Her classmates would slash her tires to prevent her from getting to shows and auditions on time. The real kicker: singer, songwriter, and fashion icon, Lady Gaga, was made fun of for being ugly and annoying and for the way she dressed and wore makeup. Guess who’s laughing now? Now, you don’t have to become a famous millionaire to eradicate your childhood and adolescent nightmares. Doing what you love will put you straight on the fast track to success. You’ll find a way to be happy without having to make other people feel lousy. Childhood, adolescence, and even adulthood can be rough when people treat you like you don’t matter. But staying true to who you are, no matter how weird people make you feel about it, allows you to grow into the best possible version of yourself. No bully, young or old, big or small, can take that away.
