Kate Gosselin may seem as though she's holding it together with her positive tweets and uplifting blog posts for The Stir, but in a new interview the single mom of eight explains that she still has "scars" from times when she was hurt by the words of other people.
Even though Kate tries to keep her mind on her kids and staying positive, her struggles seem extremely similar to what others deal with on a daily basis.
"I've been bullied. A lot. I was definitely bullied back then [during middle school] and the cruel comments and mean displays are memories that have left deep scars that remain with me till this day. Bullying made me feel insecure, alone, ugly, powerless, and hopeless at times," Kate said, adding that after she appeared on reality TV, people came out of the woodwork to make her life a living hell by jumping on to "the Internet to make ugly hurtful and untrue comments" about her and her family.
It's sad to think that someone can make another person feel so alone and hopeless with their words, but bullying has been a big issue as of late everywhere so it's good that Kate Gosselin is talking about it. Maybe her own struggles will show someone else that despite the mean-spirited comments, their life is worth living.
