I don’t do long posts, but I’ve come to a point where I cannot turn away while people are hurling negativities about something they’re not even trying to understand.
People will always hate, assume the worst and when all else fails, insult. And when we try to explain, they’ll turn a deaf ear. Only their way is right, they’d say. We can’t stop this.
But we can champion this cause without fear, for the ones who have to hide, who doubt themselves and are too afraid to embrace what’s been given to them. A support system is something we all need to make it through this crazy life. Not everyone has been lucky enough to have found that.
And that’s why I’m here. For something far more important than the noise. I know my intentions and this cause is not about me. It’s about us coming together to voice up for the ones who are too afraid and to show them that there is someone for them to turn to.
I’ve met people who are living lies just to please the world and who hurt themselves because they are rejected or “not normal” as some would call it. And it’s so devastating to see them have to resort to this, just to get by.
At the end of it all, we’re all humans and we want the same things – love, acceptance, security, family. I’m standing up for another human being to live freely, with happiness by his/her side. And if random folks think that makes me a bad person, so be it. I won’t budge.
