In this episode of The Grass Gets Greener podcast, I'm joined by Ellory Wells of The Empowered Podcast. Ellory joins me to share his story of how he was bullied in school and how it still affects him in some ways to this day, but how he doesn't let it hold him back.

Ellory got bullied when he switched schools around the age of 12 and was seen as an outsider at his new school.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
The effects that this experience had on Ellory included a decrease in his self-worth, becoming self-conscious, feeling shy, lacking confidence as well as putting himself down. Ellory still has some lingering effects to this day.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
The one thing that has really helped Ellory feel better about himself has been putting himself out there in spite of any insecurities he may feel, and connecting with like-minded people who make him feel accepted.
What Ellory does today:
Ellory runs his website, ElloryWells.com, where he blogs about leadership and personal development, as well as hosts his podcast. He's also a personal business coach for entrepreneurs looking to turn their offline expertise into an online business.
Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Ellory's Answer: Life's not easy and you don't want it to be, because it's the tough times that make us stronger. You have to change what you can and accept what you can't.
