Add Mitchell Royèl (born Mitchell Carlisle Abbott) to the growing list of millennials that have survived periods of reckless bullying.
On February 12th, 2019, Royèl posted to social media about a dark period in his life “many moons ago,” where he was deeply involved with a group of people who “degraded, disrespected and humiliated” him on a regular basis.
He claims the bullying was so intense and the impact on his self – esteem was so severe, he vowed to never publish another issue of Elixir by Royèl again.
After going through a period of introspection, the social media influencer realized he could potentially reach millions through his digital magazine, Elixir by Royèl, (which is a self – help magazine for millennials) and that inspired him to relaunch the magazine and begin publishing again.
See Royèl’s official statement below:
“Many moons ago, I was immersed in a community of individuals that took great pleasure in bullying me for no good reason. It’s okay to dislike someone, or even dislike someone for no reason; but it’s never okay, to disrespect, degrade, and humiliate that person. Meanness is a sign of weakness. Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke. Through it all, I learned that strong people stand up for themselves, but the strongest stand up for others.
Truth is, until I considered how many millennials I could help through #elixirbyroyel, I had given up on publishing it. There’s so much I could say, but nah, sometimes the bravest thing we can do is never look back. I’m proud to announce that on Valentine’s Day, I will be revealing the theme of the next issue of my digital magazine. Be careful who you bully, they may be the ones saving you tomorrow. Namaste. #MAKEBULLYINGEXTINCT.”
Safe to say the Revenge Issue of Elixir by Royèl, which will be released in March at elixirbyroyel.com, is going to be a bully-free zone.
