It gets better

As we hear heartbreaking stories about bullying and teen suicide, we wonder what we can do about it. I'm sharing this video.

I was not bullied and count my blessings, though I cannot think of a single place or moment in my childhood or youth where it was safe to be myself. I am now 100% out and continuously marvel at how well almost everyone deals with it. I enjoy life. I have known and still know love. So if you are a youth wondering if it ever gets better, if there is any hope, if life is worth living, I want to assure you....

It can get better and even be wonderful if you stick around for it. Please do. You can know so much joy and fulfillment.

Never believe the lies the bullies and bigots feed you. They are ignorant, hateful, and just plain wrong.

Folks, The Trevor Project
has resources.
