I just saw one of those confession videos with the black and white filter and the sad songs in the background…. Basically the girl was bullied after she did some dumb shit and a month later after she posted the video she killed herself. I think it’s really sad when people are bullied to a point where they damage themselves and see death as the only way out. But even more than sad, it’s infuriating to me how quickly people give up on themselves.
Dude, when you’re in high school everything that happens to you feels like the end of the fucking world. I know, I’ve been there. Reality check: It’s not. We’ve all heard about kids killing themselves because of bullying and I think it’s so fucking selfish. They’re not even giving themselves a chance. If these kids would just hold on a little while longer sooner or later they’d see that half the bullshit they worried about wasn’t even worth it. I know what you’re thinking: It’s easier said than done, right? But it’s not impossible.
Give yourself some fucking credit. Wake the fuck up. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You are stronger than you think. You just have to tap into it.
Bullying is stupid. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that you can’t change people. You can’t make people stop doing something. If that’s in their nature, that’s what they’re going to do. But you can change yourself and how you react to certain situations. You can learn and grow and move on. The sooner you realize that people don’t own you and that the only person you have to answer to is yourself, well, that’s where true happiness lies.
God, I sound like a fucking cliche. But it’s true! Your ultimate goal in your life shouldn’t be having the perfect job, or perfect grades, or a perfect family or perfect boyfriend. No, fuck that shit. Your ultimate goal should be to make yourself happy at all costs. As soon as something makes you sad, you walk away from it. Don’t get tied up with feelings and emotions. You’re not fucking stupid. You know what’s good for you and you know what’s bad for you. And if you decide to do what’s bad for you then make sure you are ready to deal with the fucking consequences. Suicide is for pussies. This is your life. Take responsibility for it. Fuck your parents, fuck your friends, fuck your family if they don’t get you. You don’t need ‘em anyway.
