MAJOR celebs who overcame bullying

If my bully could see me now...

These celebs are proof that if you’re being bullied, you’ll come out bigger, better, stronger and happier.

Emma Watson:
“Becoming yourself is a really hard and confusing process. I was the eager beaver in school; the girl in the front of the class who was the first person to put her hand up. I’ve often gotten teased mercilessly, but I found that if you truly pour your heart into what you believe in, even if it makes you vulnerable, amazing things can and will happen.”

Taylor Swift:
“My bullies showed up wearing my T-shirts, asking me to sign their CDs. 
It was bittersweet because it made 
me realise that they didn’t remember being mean to me and that I needed 
to forget about it, too. Really, if I hadn’t come home from school miserable 
every day, maybe I wouldn’t have 
been so motivated to write songs. 
I should probably thank them.”

Megan Fox:
“I was bullied and it’s hard. You feel like high school’s never going to 
be over. It’s a few years of your life, and you just have to remember the person picking on you has their own problems and their own issues.”

Demi Lovato:
“People would write ‘hate petitions’ about me and send them around to be signed. They’d have CD-bashing parties of my demos. I just want 
my fans to know that they’re strong 
and that they can get through it. They’re beautiful and no matter 
what other people say, they’re worth 
it and can get through it. I did.”

Jennifer Lawrence:
“I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary because some girls were mean. They were less mean in middle school, although, I remember this one girl gave 
me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn’t even invited to. Don’t worry about all the BS. That could be a good 
motto because you come across people 
like that throughout your life.”
