“There will never be another decade like the 1970’s. It was an amazing time to be alive. There was so much love to go around, people were so good-spirited. I’m grateful that I was able to spend my life the way I did. I miss those days, I really do.”
I like to say I was thankful to my school bully, because without him, I wouldn’t be in this position now. I thought that was a weakness, but I realise now those sensitivities can be a real strength. Today I celebrate my sensitivities. Defining experience you never forget. I have not forgotten who bullied me, but I’m not going to name and shame them. I know now that it goes on everywhere, and I also have more understanding of what makes a bully. They’ve been bullied before.
