Derek, 29, wrote in his TVGuide blog about their upcoming dance on Dancing With The Stars: “This week is Most Memorable Year of Your Life. Bethany’s is about her experience with cyberbullying. It’s a very important message in this day and age. She went through cyberbullying when she was young and that’s why she got into YouTube. It’s not about bully themselves, but understanding why bullies are the way they are. A bully is someone is who doesn’t love themselves,” he wrote.
Derek added, “Our piece is showing the negative and the positive. It’s a really special routine. You can take the positive, but don’t rely on it. It’s about having control and not needing anything but yourself. Pain happens, but it’s temporary. Suffering is prolonged pain. We choose if we’re going to let something bother us to the point that it sits and stews and we suffer. It’s a ripple effect. You see something negative about yourself, so you feel bad and you start putting somebody else down.”
Can’t wait to see their dance!
