-sigh- The activist in me in pissed. Here is why.
As some of you may be aware of, today is a day to acknowledge bullying awareness. You are able to do this by purchasing a shirt from PurpleMoon by donating a minimum of 10 linden dollars (more is welcome). Due to this being a topic that hits so close to home, I have decided to get real with this.
Now anyone that knows me personally knows in detail how much bullying I have been through in school. All through school, I was teased, tormented for simply being myself. It had gotten to the extreme that I have made 6, yes SIX suicide attempts. I shattered every mirror I owned at the time because I was convinced that I was hideous and not worthy of anyone’s company or love. I am, however, blessed and grateful for my mother who has stood by my side during all of this to keep a friendly reminder alive in my head: you are and always will be beautiful.
This goes to anyone and EVERYONE!
No matter what walk of life we may come from, we all shed the same salty tears and when cut bleed the same red blood. It makes me sick to know that even as much progress as we have made, there is still a journey to endure. No one wants to feel like shit. We all want to be loved and appreciated for the individuals that we are. We all have something to bring to the table to enhance the quality of life and to express that love to as many people as we can.
I snarl at the ones who look down on others just because they put their worth in so much materialistic garbage. just makes me want to puke every time someone has been harassed to the point of no return all because they may not have the same job, hair style and the color of their own damn skin for some reason IS STILL, RELEVANT TOO THEM!!! Just why world? I never understood the reasoning behind the repetition of bashing someone’s head in verbally over things we only got with special circumstances. AT the end of the day, WHO….. CARES!!?!?!?!?!!?
Just, I wish people were more open to embrace others.
I wish people would stop giving a cold shoulder o those that may need help.
I wish that instead of belittling someone who may not have it as good as you do, either shut up or try to help them advance.
But most of all
I wish people would love themselves, then maybe this world wouldn’t be so fucked up. xoxo #STOPBULLYING
