This must end! We have lost too many good young men and women simply because they were bullied for being Homosexual, Transgender or other reasons. No one deserves this hell and I refuse to stand idle while others are bullied, self harmed or

People don’t get it… Heartbreak is one of those things that everybody experiences. Everyone is dumped, everyone falls for someone only to be shot down or used and then thrown away. Yes, it hurts, especially when it happens again and again, but it is not the worst pain in the world. WAKE UP CALL KIDS: You are going to fall madly in love, kiss, make love, make plans, then get crushed, you are going to cry yourself to sleep and wish you were dead, you are going to wallow in self pitty for days upon days… AND THEN YOU WILL MOVE ON! You will find someone and either live happily ever after or you will repeat the cycle. THAT IS LIFE, it sucks, yes, but your relationship problems are not unique, love fucking sucks!
I am not trying to sound mean here but I am trying to get people to see that there are worse problems than heartbreak. I have have not had an easy life, but even I realize that my life is something to be thankful for. There are kids who would die for the things I take for granted and yes, sometimes I feel like shit and cry, but then I wake up and realize that I am loved by people, I am alive, I can walk, I have food and a home (dysfunctional home, but a home) and I am not having as bad of a day as I think I am.
I guess what I am trying to say is Yes, it is okay to cry and want a better life and to wallow in self pitty and hate the world for a while, but then, you need to wake up, look at the sun and say “It is a beautiful day to change the world.” Then you need to go out there and do it! Yes, we have our problems and life is hard, Love is no exception, but understand there are people to help. I am here, my inbox is always open and I will show you all the love, compassion and give you a shoulder to cry on, but I can only help you if you are going to listen and try. I love you all, even those who hate me, I love you. Sorry for being blunt, using foul language and sounding so angry but I needed to say this. I just hope people will listen.
It has been several days since I received your message saying you were giving up and contemplating suicide, I have not forgotten about you. I do not know who you are, I do not know where you are from or what your story is, but I hope that you did not hurt yourself. You are a person, you have a story, a heart, a future and you cannot give up. I hate to think that something may have happened so please, I beg you, message me and talk to me. I am here for you, I promise! I will not give up on you!
NO, I DO NOT GIVE UP!
I refuse to let you win, this is not the end of me! I owe it to all of those lost to LGBT bullying to stand tall and scream out that I am not done! I take my suicide note back, I take the goodbyes back! I am alive and I am going NOWHERE but the top!
Please, anyone out there who is struggling, join hands with me and together, we will forge a path into the the future! If you ever need my help PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me here or on Facebook. From one deeply messed up person to another, I can try and will try my hardest to help!
