I know that no bullied or isolated teenager things that things will get better, but they do. They get better as long as you have a positive outlook and believe that things will get better. When you're in High School this is easier said than done, sure, I know that first hand but it's true. As long as you work to put aside the nasty comments that you hear about yourself and feel confident in yourself, you will get through it. It's definitely something you have to learn and something that I wish I had learned early on, but you can do it if you just believe in yourself.
Kids and teenagers are getting bullied every single day and I cringe when I hear about young people committing suicide or considering committing suicide because they feel hopeless and depressed from things that others say. It makes me cringe because I've been there and I realize that could have been me if I had given into my depression but I chose to try to fight against the bullies. Not physically but emotionally. I'm lucky that I had a great family and two friends that I could always complain to. They helped tremendously in keeping me going on even when I felt like there was no hope for me. I just wish more bullied kids or teenagers had the nerve to speak up and tell someone what they're feeling or what they're going through. I'm sure that if they didn't keep it inside they would have an amazing support system to help them rather than take tragic measures into their own hands.
One day I would love to speak up against bullying in some way, shape or form. It's something that is very important to me and something that I feel is important to me. I would love to help others who are going through what I went through because now that I am older, I know methods that I could have utilized to stop the bullying or to put that behind me rather than dwelling on it and listening to it. I would love to have be a voice in other's lives when they don't feel like there's one and I would love to be someone that others can lean on when they have no one else.
I just want everyone that is being bullied to know that there is hope and I wish I could have told myself that ten years ago, but I can't go back in time and change what happened to me or how I felt. All I can do is hopefully help another generation who cannot help themselves.
