Different, everyone is different, and as a society we should accept these differences. We all want to find who we really are and what makes us, well, us. I’ve always questioned myself and wondered every day if I am a “normal” person. Today I am slowly discovering who I am and honestly, there is no such thing as “normal” or “perfect”. No matter who you are, there will be people judging you and that I something we all got to live with. Someone once told me, “You have to find your own voice and find your own way through life” and this is the quote I live by every day.

I spent days preparing for this and it is a huge deal because someone will finally know the real me. Her reaction was just a huge smile on her face and she gave me a hug right afterward. She was so supportive and just the most amazing person I’ve ever met. I remember thinking how dumb I was to even think of suicide and that there are amazing people in this world. Everyone deserves love and we should not stand in the way of someone’s happiness. Being raised and told that being gay is morally wrong gave me a hard time to accept myself and if you don’t truly accept yourself for who you are, you will never find peace and happiness in life.

We live in a generation that never interacts in person so you can’t tell someone’s emotion through texting. My best example is Robin Williams, one of the world’s greatest comedian that committed suicide because he wasn’t happy. He seems so happy and you expect him to be because he is a comedian and living a pretty good life. So if you don’t know what someone and what they’ve been through, stop judging and leave them alone. Words are a powerful thing and can either worsen or brighten their day. We can start making this world a better place by always being kind to one
