It doesn't matter what your age is, there will always be someone bullying you.

I've always been bullied. Either I wasn't tall enough, I was too tall, I wasn't thin enough, I didn't weigh enough, anything you can imagine, I was made fun of for. I didn't quite fit in with the popular crowd and I didn't quite fit in with any other group either. I had my select few friends, ballet, and family to keep me company.

I had a great childhood thanks to my awesome parents, siblings and grandmother. If it wasn't for them, I don't know how I would have made it to adulthood. You see, bullying is a serious thing. It shakes people to their core. It rattles them. It makes you lose a part of yourself, a part of your confidence that you may never get back.

I remember one horrifying day in high school. I still don't know until this day who betrayed me so deeply, but I still feel the tears grow in my eyes when thinking about it. I didn't know I had enemies in high school, I didn't understand how people couldn't just get along and I didn't understand how someone could be so cruel.

After class, I went to my locker to find sanitary pads taped to it. It had red lipstick all over it so it looked as if they were used. Gross right!? Imagine the horror of walking up to your locker and seeing it all. I cried myself to sleep for many nights after that.

Fast forward to my life now. I'm happily married, I have the best job and co-workers in the world, I have amazing friends and an even bigger family that has love exploding out the seams!. I'm happy. I'm loved. I'm surrounded by love.

Each day when I get to work I think about how lucky I am to have the job that I do. I get to listen to awesome rock and roll, I get to do my dream job and I have a voice that gets heard. Sometimes I wonder if that is why I took this career path, to be heard. I've always felt that my screams, my cries, my voice wasn't heard. YOU have the option to listen to my show, to hear my voice and to those who make that choice I thank you. It's somewhat self soothing to know that I'm not alone.

Recently, as I have been coming to the job that I love, I have been bullied. Some guy/girl likes to comment on our YouTube videos about how gross I am, how I'm only good at farting and burping, how uneducated I am, etc. Why is it that I thought I put all this bullying in my past but yet I am confronted with it still in my place of work?

I understand that I am a 'public figure,' a term which I use loosely, and that I am subjected to scrutiny. It's fine, lucky for me I have quite a thick skin. What's the old saying? "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." It's true.

As my Grandma Valentine always said, "if you don't have anything nice to say, than don't say anything at all." Let's all learn from that.

And to the person/persons who like to bully me via social media. I'll pray for you.
