Beating Up and Bringing Down
One of the problems with being Emo is that many people from other subcultures, or just in general, pick on you. For instance, I go to boarding school, and I came back to my room yesterday to find all my stuff trashed and everything of value either drawn on, or stolen. Needless to say, I was pretty mad.
The trick is not to retaliate. Believe me, I’ve been down that route and it does nothing except make things worse for everyone involved. Lots of people get hurt every day, and each time I get beat up, I thank the Lord or whoever else might be up there that I’m not one of the people without the right to speak. I thank my lucky stars that I live in a country where I can get support for all this. I take courage in the fact that I’m not alone. I’m not the only one who has to go through sadness because of other people’s ignorance every day.
I can tell you one thing that will help you though. Talk to someone about it. I’m not saying tell an adult or anything, because I know that often doesn’t help, but I’m on hand over email most days and I’m sure any of your friends would listen. I don’t want anyone reading this to feel alone, and if I can help them in any way, I’d love to.
Love you all
