Miley Cyrus revealed about her emotional battle with bullying mean girls in her new memoirs, Miles To Go. ‘I never told my parents about bullying. Sometimes I tried to defend myself. Sometimes I apologized. Sometimes I walked away.
I always felt alone. But the night I got the cafeteria threat it seemed like Operation Make Miley Miserable was escalating to a new level. More like Operation Take Miley Down.
I was so scared that I told a friend from cheerleading about it on the phone. Should I skip lunch? ShouId I arm myself with a ketchup bottle and prepare for battle?
It was like an afterschool special about the runty girl who gets beat up.
But instead of having and happy ending with an uplifting message about overcoming adversity, this plot would end with my living out the rest of my
life as a twelve-year-old hermit, friendless and alone..
After bailing on too many auditions because of bullies, I did not have the comfort of cheerleading anymore. I just got by. I started hanging out with some older kids and tried to put it out of my mind, but the bully girls continued to give me a hard time every day.
I hated school. I never turned my back to open my locker without being aware of who else was in the hall. I never lingered between classes or after school. Every time I went to the bathroom or walk around the corner, I was on
edge. I didn’t feel safe.‘
