During middle school, he was bullied by his classmates because he happened to be a quiet person who didn’t fit in.

“When I was in middle school, I didn’t talk much and I didn’t get along with my classmates very well. I wasn’t necessarily bullied but I think I was ostracized.”

But he was able to overcome the difficult times by thinking about it in a completely new way. He decided that he shouldn’t hate the bullies for not knowing what’s right but thank them for teaching him what was wrong.

“This is how I pulled through those difficult times. I think of it this way. The bullies are teaching me something – in somewhat of a violent manner.

Even if someone treats me in a violent, wrongful manner, I won’t hate them. I’ll be thankful because they taught me something.

They’ll have a lot to learn once they enter society but I’ve already learned it from them.”
