There’s no way I can say this without someone taking it the wrong way or for offending someone…

I posted this a while ago, but I’m going to bring it back:

Hey, all…

Hi, I’ve been seeing a lot of people just feeling worthless, saying they’re giving up, saying that no one cares, and saying that there isn’t a point to dealing with the bullshit of everyday life. I am hearing this on the internet and in real {physical} life. The bullying is not just related to gay, lesbian, transgender, and questioning youth, but related to everything.

So, that is why I decided to post all of the ‘It Gets Better’ videos. I’ll probably post more eventually, but we need to remind each other that while there are hateful people, it gets better. We need to let people know that we care about them and we are there for them if anything happens or they need someone to talk to. We need to be the advocates for the necessary change. 

And to anyone who reads this who this applies to…
There are many people out there and many groups who do care about you. I care about you. A fucking lot. I am here if you need me. I know, we don’t know each other, but sometimes talking to strangers about the harder issues is easier. I can promise you, people in your life do care. It does and will get better, I promise you that.

** There is a what you can do and what you can’t do in society. I mean yeah, don’t yell fire in a crowded theater, don’t commit a crime, etc. are pretty big universal NO’s, but there are things that our parents were raised on, that they believe are wrong. We can’t change that, we can change the future and what we do from here on out. 

“And isn’t it funny how you say that bullying is such a part of growing up, but it really doesn’t have to be? And isn’t that unfortunate that the overlying theme is ‘Well that’s just what you go through’”
