Susan Boyle has told Oprah, in an interview, that being bullied made her feel like she wasn't loved.
The Scottish singer talked candidly about the bullying that she had to endure at school and through her life. At last, in her late forties, she has opened up and shared her innermost thoughts on her treatment at the hands of the bullies.
Susan appeared relaxed and comfortable during the interview. Perhaps she has learned how to handle what for her always seemed to be a struggle.
Maybe some of her reactions were not quite what you would expect from a public figure. This is the essence of Susan. Someone who knows exactly who she is and who does not need to resort to big public displays of emotion or playing the diva for the cameras.
Susan also knows that her fans are loyal. Maybe some fans are way over the top, obsessed, you might say, but they support her and love her, which is just the way she needs it to be.
Susan always knows that she can return to her home in Scotland, where she is happiest and among familiar surroundings.
Oprah advised Susan, "send the bullies a signed CD and tell them, Look where I am now!"
Sage advice indeed.
