You aren't afraid of the dark. You're scared of what's in it.
You aren't afraid of heights. You're afraid of falling.
You aren't afraid of death. You're afraid of dying.
You aren't afraid of the people around you. You're afraid of rejection.
You aren't afraid to love. You're afraid of not being loved back.
You aren't afraid of letting go. You're just afraid to accept the reality that they're gone.
You aren't afraid to try again. You're afraid of being hurt for the exact same thing.
Something I found on a profile of a writer that I like. It displays something I could have become if not for my outs, friends, games, anime. This is important to me because of the people that I know whom this apply to. It hurts that people stoop so low so as to bully others. I hope this resonates with anyone who see's it.
The girl you just called fat? She is overdosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for his country. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying. Put this as you're profile if you're against bullying. I bet 95% of you wont put this on your profile, but I'm sure the people with a heart and backbone will.
For people that hate stereotypes: If you think people should just shut up and stop, put this on your profile. (BOLD the ones you are.)
