I know that you already know this, but thought it couldn't hurt to remind you. Also, I know that you are NOT ok. Therefore, I will do whatever I can and is necessary to change that. I'm serious. You cannot live like this anymore...and you don't have to.
Showing my true, real self is hard. Bullied, teased, made fun of for who you really were is hard to come from. That's why people put up walls, barriers, masks, to hide behind. They're afraid that people will do it again, just like the people before.
