Ansel Elgort

 “I went through a lot of bullying in middle school and it made me so upset all the time. I hated my life. I hated everything. I live in New York City in a high building with a little terrace. I’d go on the terrace and I’d look off the terrace and I literally just thought about  jumping off because I hated living so much. It does make it so hard when your that age and everyone is being mean to you at school and you have to go to school every day and deal with people being mean to you. You feel like what you have to say isn’t important and that you’re not important. The way that I coped with it was making another group of friends outside of that group of people who were mean to me so that I had some sort of  support system. Then I focused all my energy on acting and dancing and singing and music so that I felt like I had a purpose that sort of took me out of it and made me forget about it a little bit and it made it a lot better.”  BystanderRevolution.org
