Time magazine reports on Tina Fey, who comes clean about being mean:
'Fey, 45, reflects on what drove her to bully. “That was a disease that had to be conquered,” she says adding, “It’s another coping mechanism – it’s a bad coping mechanism – but when you feel less than (in high school, everyone feels less than everyone else for different reasons), in your mind it’s a way of leveling the playing field. Though of course it’s not.”'
It was a disease! That could be conquered!
It was a coping mechanism! But a bad one!
I don't quite hear regret
as of yet.
I don't quite hear "I misbehaved
but now am saved."
I do hear time in therapy,
accepting prior history.
