This is something that I wrote which is a real reality for those within the LGBTQ community. There are people within our community who commit suicide because of being bullied and/or because of their family hating them. Each time I hear of someone committing suicide because of bullying, I feel sad for that one person who had their life snuffed out far too early.
I was one of those people who got lucky. I had a Mom who accepted me, no matter of my sexual orientation. My friends accepted me after a couple of years. My Dad is still a bit skeptical on the whole thing, but he never kicked me out or hated me. Unfortunately, many people are not this lucky. Many people have their families hating them, and get bullied at school because they're lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, or trans. Many of them feel that they have no other option.
I want them to know that there IS
another option. Taking your own life is not the way to go. I know that it's hard when you're being bullied, being a victim of bullying myself. There is always someone out there who will care if you decide to snuff out your life.
I care. I care if you snuff out your life. You don't know me, and I don't know you, but I care. Each and every person out there who is considering suicide, don't do it. Please, please don't do it. Society will lose such a gifted, beautiful, and amazing individual if you do so. You were put on this planet for a reason. Don't let anyone tell you that you're worthless or you should go die. That's not true. It's never true.
I want you to know that if you need someone to talk to, I'm here. I likely don't know you, but I am here. Sometimes, all you need is someone to listen to you. I'm willing to be that person. I will not judge you based on your orientation, your race, your ethnicity, your skin color. I will not judge you period.
Please remember this. You were put here for a reason. That reason was so you could live, be happy, find that special person, and grow old with them someday. Never, ever let someone tell you you're worthless, because believe this.
You are not worthless. You have a purpose here, and by god, that purpose is to live and be the happiest you can be.
You're never alone.
