"I really thought that if I ended up on a really big stage someday singing songs that I wrote for a lot of people, I wouldnโ€™t have to deal with mean kids or bullies anymore. But thatโ€™s not how things happen, it turns out. And when I grew up, Iโ€™ve realized recently that meanness isnโ€™t a phase that people are going through, itโ€™s part of the human condition. Itโ€™s something that weโ€™re going to have to deal with our entire lives." [x]
