Lauren Taylor is SO not about people being mean to each other – but she knows it happens all too often. In a new interview, the Best Friends Whenever actress explained that she has experienced bullying firsthand before, and shared her inspiring advice for how to deal with a negative situation.
"I've been bullied a lot throughout middle school and I definitely consider myself an activist for anti-bullying," the star shared. "The best advice I can give you is that you are amazing and important, and you have to remain positive and kind. Be a good example. Believe in yourself! The rest will come."
Those are definitely some inspiring words.
