Derek Hough Talks Bullying in His New Book 'Taking the Lead'

The 29-year-old pro dancer recently opened up about his book and experience with bullying.

“For me, the essence of the book that I wanted to try and capture was a phrase that I heard that I absolutely love and it’s, ‘What if the world wasn’t happening to you, but is happening for you,’” Derek told Access Hollywood. “And I look at those experiences and reflect on them and thinking like, ‘What could I have learned from that?’”

He continued, “I almost have more compassion for the guys and why they felt like they had to overpower somebody. And also, not just young kids, but adults as well — why does somebody feel like they have to overpower somebody and bully them and put them down?”
