For years as a kid in school I was bullied for being different. Bullying doesn't have to mean you were hit or abused. Bullying can be all about the words and names you were called or overheard. All through school I was scared to be myself, a gay kid. I always thought it would be much worse if I told anyone I was gay, so I spent 12 miserable years living a lie. If it was this bad not being myself then being myself would have been much worse. No one should grow up alone, no one should have to lie about themselves just to make it through the day, no one should have to be bullied. We need to stop this NOW.
