Ever since I was a little girl I was around bullying. However, I was fortunate. I attended a private school; so the bullying wasn't as severe as it could have been if it were a public schooling system. But I'm not here to talk about my story, that's for another day.
You see, I have always found the internet to be a safe haven. I have my entire life on my laptop. And so it's safe to say that I love meeting new people online, despite the whole "stranger danger" ordeal. One day on my blog I came across a message in my ask from a new follower of mine named Robbie. I started talking to him, one thing led to another, and before you know it we're great friends. We really cliqued and bonded over the few months I had gotten to know him in.
Robbie and I told each other everything. He confided in me how he was depressed. When he was younger he was bullied really badly, and it was just getting worse as time went on. His foster parents didn't care. He tried killing himself 3 times before. Then one day in May he just about succeeded. He downed an entire bottle of pills and went to sleep. But he wasn't dead. His mom found him in time to get an ambulance to get him to the hospital. He was unconscious during the whole thing, and ended up slipping into a coma. The doctors told his parents there was nothing they could do to bring him back, so they took him off life support later that night.
Robbie had his whole life ahead of him, and it was brought short by a few idiots. Robbie is someone that I will always look up to. He put up with so much in his life. He stayed strong through so many years of abuse. He's truly an inspiration for all. It's a shame that he isn't here today to see how happy he could be. If he found this website I'm 100% sure it would have changed his perspective to know that people really do care and are doing something about bullying.
Robbie may not be here anymore, but his story will remain strong for now and many years to come. ♡♡♡ I love you Robbie.
