One of them

We had a presentation at the school today. It was about cyber bullying. On the outside, it was perfectly fine. Until they started talking about suicides due to cyber bullying. They brought a whole bunch of pictures up on the screen of young boys and young girls. Then the tears came. I lost two of my best friends to suicide and almost lost a third. I almost lost myself too-I was almost one of the girls on the screen. We came back to the house to talk about what we’d just heard. I couldn’t stop crying. I haven’t cried in public in so long. I just want everyone and anyone who had ever been bullied, online or in person, that are contemplating suicide, I just want you know that you are loved a lot and that there are many people you can ask for help anonymously.

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
