The editors of the Zvezdomania program managed to have a frank conversation with the blogger Roman Nikulshin, known in TikTok under the pseudonym r0maanyy. There, the teenager has one and a half million subscribers.
Bright personalities always face bullying. At school, in a company, on the street, they may be somehow insulted, hurt, or simply said: «Fu, how ugly.»
Classmates who studied with our interlocutor for 9 years at school asked: «Do you always dress like a countryman?» Perhaps from a lack of upbringing or correctness, or perhaps from malice. As Roman himself admits, «I did not understand what was driving them — probably an attempt to stand out among others at the expense of me.»
Roman had no friends at school. And not because he did not want to communicate with anyone, but because he was kind and sincere, and in this he differed from his classmates.
“I remember going home from school, and a group of classmates was waiting for me on the playground. At first they bullied with words, then they began to push. I then gave some kind of rebuff by saying, “Why are you doing this,” and they shoved my head into a snowdrift, and then laid me on the ground and started kicking, ”says Roman Nikulshin.
It is scary in such a situation that a person is left without support from the outside, he withdraws into himself, and this leads to psychological instability.
“I didn’t tell my parents anything. What for? Why did I need a showdown with adults? I was an outcast in my class, I didn’t want to communicate with anyone, they were strangers to me, so I always tried to endure the end of the quarter and go on vacation,” Roman admits.
According to psychologists, it is school life that forms the inner image of a person, due to which a number of complexes emerge in the future: the fear of meeting with friends in new clothes, sharing an opinion about some situation that has happened. People become withdrawn in themselves.
Now Roman is in the society of the most tolerant people. He broke up with his former classmates and no longer worries that someday he will have to be with those with whom he does not want to.
Roman is sure that the circle of people he replaced after school will teach him to love life and accept himself as he is.
