My time at school was not a fun one. I was weird, hung out with weird people, and liked weird things. I was flat chested. I was told by all the popular girls constantly that I wasn't pretty. Boys didn't want to date me, they just saw me as "another one of the guys". I went through a confusing time from the age of 12 to 16 where I didn't know if I was gay or straight. All of the negativity in my life made me negative towards myself and others too.
But that's not who I wanted to be. I don't want to be uncomfortable with myself because someone doesn't like who I am. I want to love who I am and be all I can be, because this is my life. And I know that I am not alone, because everyone just wants to live happy. Even the people who are bullying. Their methods don't work, and hurt others, but sometimes they are hurting too. They are just scared.
I am 22 years old, and I identify as a gender fluid pansexual. There will be people who don't know what this means. There will be people who think they know what this means. There will be people who don't like it, who bully me. But I won't let it get to me, because I am better than that. And you are too :)
