I am a 16 year old boy in highschool. High school is one of the craziest things anyone experiences in your life. I was a very outgoing person, but I was bullied in middle school. I wasn't physically bullied, I never had any marks. It was all in my head. And that is the worse one of them all. I was called gay because of the way I acted and dressed. At first it didn't bother me, I just blew it off as though"Oh its nothing." But it kept on happening, kept happening. Then one of my good friends had asked me. And to make it worse, my sister had called me gay in an arguement. That was when it fell downhill. I felt alone. I felt like no one was there. I felt that I had only myself. I had thought of suicide. But could NEVER get myself to do it. I cried alot and it was horrible. But I did have some very supportive friends, and a very supportive mom. So my message for you, is reach out. If you are having thought of self harm. Reach out. Talk to someone, anyone. Because it does get better, and people grow up. Do not give up on yourself. No matter who you are, you are amazing just the way you are. Do not give up. <3
