Default Reach out

hi everyone, I've been debating in my mind for weeks now if I should post anything in this forum. I'm a little tipsy now so it's easier for me to communicate certain things without obsessing over the wording, so I hope you'll excuse me if some of this is a little incoherent, especially since I'm using my phone to do this. My niece recently committed suicide. Her last act was to post on facebook that she's bisexual. No one in my family knew except for her brother, and apparently she had been getting bullied. I don't know what to say to this community, other than I support you, and if you're struggling, please reach out for help. I never thought I would be posting anything like this. My best friend is gay. I love him like family, and I guess I thought that if anyone I knew was struggling with issues of acceptance, that they knew I was here for them. I don't know if this is making any sense... I just wish we lived in a world where it didn't matter if you were gay or straight, fat or thin, black or white... If you know of someone who is going through a difficult time, regardless of the reason, please reach out to them. And if you are that person, please reach out to someone for help. Even if you can't see it now, there are people in this world who love you. Thank you for reading, please repost wherever you see fit. I probably wont be on the forums for awhile, so I apologize if I don't get to any responses for awhile.

Very sorry to hear about your niece. I'm glad you took the time to write this, though.

I'm so sorry to hear about your niece, Philo Girl, and please accept my condolences and prayers to you and your family. Thank you for sharing with us, and I hope that your words reach at least one person who needs to hear it. I know when I was your nieces age, I struggled a lot, and even tried to kill myself, so I know of the pain she was feeling, and rage at the fact that we live in a world that still makes children feel so awful about being human.

I'm sorry I took your pain and used it to talk about myself, but I do so in the hope that the fact that I made it through those difficult times, into a place where I am happy and accepted just as I am, and loved precisely for my 'differences,' then it might help someone out there.

(((((Philo Girl))))))
