It didn’t occur to me until years later that the reason these adults liked me isn’t because I listened to them but because I made their lives easier. I didn’t make them uncomfortable. The problem didn’t go away but simply became well hidden. It made them feel better.

This really struck a chord. It’s the underlying problem with the current educational and schooling system. Children are expected somehow “fit in”, to not fight for themselves or to somehow deal with their peers themselves. This is because the most administrations prefer to have an unchanged system where problems are hidden which is easier for them and the children grow up feeling disenfranchised.
