Mikey Way is the bass player for the New Jersey rock band My Chemical Romance. In an interview Way explains his personal bullying story,
“One of the awful constants about growing up and going to school, are the social obstacles that are waiting for you once you get there. Much like many of you out there, I was indeed bullied in school. I was a "fat kid with glasses"! I pretty much had a gigantic neon sign above my head that said, "pick on me, please!" It's almost a given that it's going to happen to everybody in some way shape or form sometime in your scholastic career. If someone is picking on you, it usually means that there is something that they don't like about themselves. It causes them to lash out on those who can't defend themselves, giving the bully a self esteem boost. You can find comfort in the fact that most of the "popular" kids in school have already reached their apex, and it's only going to be down-hill for a lot of them once school is over. Being picked can also mean that there's something unique and interesting about you, and one day you'll be able to effectively harness that power.”
