that one time a guy from my school was sent home for wearing a skirt and everyone wore skirts as a protest the following school day
- 1. Because you have so much potential.
- 2. Even if you think that you're alone and that no one will care, people would care. I would care. I care now.
- 3. You're better than your disease. You're more than it.
- 4. You will miss out on so much. Think about all the good things and memories you have had. I know you had some. You had good times with people. Even if those ended, you smiled. There will be so many people, your husband, your wife, friends, teachers, and even your own children that you will never be able to meet because of this.
- 5. Because you're telling others that it's okay to quit and give up.
- 6. The people that bring you down, think about them. Won't it feel great to prove them wrong? Won't it feel great to be a rockstar, an artist, a writer, or whatever your dreams are? Won't it feel amazing when they're 40 and still spewing out hatred while you're on top and finally happy because you have pushed yourself.
- 7. You impact lives. A simple on the stranger on the street that smiles at me, made my day. You could too by just moving some muscles on your face. So you impact lives, even if you don't want to.
- 8. It's a mistake. And it's really hard to fix. When I was suicidal and standing on the edge, I kept thinking to myself, "what if I regret doing this? What if I want to reverse jumping and go back to the way things were?" But it'd be too late. I can't turn back the time. I'd be falling to my death. Full of regret.
- 9. Cause people care and you are not alone. I have met some incredible people who actually get it. Have faith. Happy endings do exist. If you're not happy, then the war isn't over yet. Keep fighting. And keep pushing. You will give love and get love one day.
- 10. Because it gets so much better. I love you and I'm here for you all.
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
what if virginity was actually a visible thing like when you have sex for the first time your virginity comes out of your ear in the form of a slug
