Kylie Jenner: Bullying made me stronger

Kylie Jenner believes being bullied has made her stronger.

The 18-year-old reality TV star, who shot into the limelight when she was aged 10, has been heavily criticised over the years for her appearance and actions but she's confident the tough experience has made her emotionally bullet-proof.

Speaking in a behind-the-scenes video for ELLE Canada, she said: "Being bullied for so long at such a young age - it just made me so strong and I feel like I shouldn't be this strong at 18 but it just made me stronger."

She added: "Now I feel like anyone can say anything about me and it's not gonna hurt me."

However, the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has admitted the nasty remarks she was bombarded with didn't really affect her that much because she remained blind to the comments by refusing to search herself online.

She explained: "I never looked at the comments; I never Googled myself--I wouldn't go there. I didn't even know about any of these mean blogs. I know that if you don't read it, it doesn't affect you, but it's still hard."

Despite claiming the negative online jibes can't hurt her, Kylie previously revealed she "lost a part" of her when she was learning how to deal with the hurdles of fame.

She said previously: "It's resulted in a lot of anxiety for me that I've never had to deal with before ever.

"My every move has been documented for the whole world and its been a nightmare trying to find myself through all of this. And I've absolutely lost a part of myself."
