As I’m sure we all know, former reality television star Kate Gosselin has been the subject of much taunting and not-so-nice comments from the internet blogs and the mother-of-eight is finally firing back. The former TLC star has opened up about her experience with “adult bullies” and how she is more determined than ever to prove her “haters” wrong.
“I’ve been bullied. A lot. I was definitely bullied back then [during middle school] and the cruel comments and mean displays are memories that have left deep scars that remain with me till this day. Bullying made me feel insecure, alone, ugly, powerless, and hopeless at times. Being bullied was the most difficult part of my early teen years. But the bullying didn’t stop there for me and with a quick sweep of the Internet, it’s clear that this epidemic is alive and well like a disease with no cure!It’s a horrible disease that haunts me and many many many others in our world!”
Kate also added:
“I use my haters as my motivators. If they say I can’t do it, rest assured I WILL do it. And I won’t stop until I’ve succeeded in achieving any given goal. With all I’ve been through, one thing I know about myself is that my persistence is hard to stop! I think of myself as the energized bunny,” she continued. “I keep going and going and going!”
While there is no excuse for bullying, I’ve always believed that bullies breed bullies and that children of course learn by example. If we want to stop bullying, we need to stop being the bullies. Thoughts, Babble readers?
