I told my parents and teachers everything. “I’ve had enough. I want to die.”
Someta became the target of bullying when he was in his third year of middle school. Every day, he took beatings from a group of bullies. After much thinking, Someta mustered up the courage to tell his parents and teachers about what was happening. The adults took action, and the bullying stopped. Now, Someta works as a rakugo storyteller. Looking back, he feels certain that it is totally okay to run away from that kind of situation and depend on adults.
