Dear Popular Kids

6 Feb

Dear popular kids,
I am sorry I shop at Hot Topic and thrift stores instead of wearing overly priced crap that you just wear to fit in. I’m sorry I’m depressed and I don’t dress the way you want me to dress. I’m sorry I wear band tees instead of slutty outfits. I’m sorry I prefer horror movies other than watching guys take their shirts off and flex. I’m sorry I listen to music that describes me rather than crap you can’t even understand. I’m sorry I would rather go to a concert than go to a party. I’m sorry I go play with my band on Friday nights instead of going and having sex with my boyfriend. I’m just so sorry, I’m not seemingly perfect and fake like you.

I’m sorry my parents aren’t proud of me.

Dear Friends

11 Jun

Dear friends,
I just want you to know that if i didnt have you i dont know what i would do . There are some of you that i dont call my true friends. If you were my friends you wouldnt pick on me every single day of my life. You tell me we’re bestfriends and that you’re just joking around but at the end of the day the jokes arent as funny anymore. You need to think about what you are saying because honeslty it isnt okay. I am not going to let you do this to me anymore. It’s time for me to stand up and speak out. Im sorry if I hurt your feelings in the progress but now you will feel the pain you cause me everyday.
Love , your so called “friend”

Dear Old Bully…Slowly I get better

11 Dec

Dear old bully,
I’m glad you’ve stopped bullying me. However, the memories will never go away, the tears have already rolled down my cheeks and the words of insecurity will forever be imprinted in my mind like a tattoo. I’m glad we became friends but i will always keep a little distance from you. You ruined my life. You caused me to be insecure. To feel ugly. I lost any confidence I had. 3 years later, I’m still one secure. I still feel ugly and I still lack confidence. I thought my life was over when you moved next door. But things changed. We became friends. No. We became acquaintances. We can never be friends. You hurt me too much. ‘Ugly’ ‘stupid’ ‘ no one likes you’ the words still run through my head when I see you. But I forgive. Never will I completely heal, but slowly I get better.
Sincerely,
The ugly, stupid loser no one likes.

Dear Reader…Stay Strong :)

Dear reader, ❤
No matter who you or are where your from; no matter how many tears you’ve cried, how many memories you have remembered, no matter what has happened in your life, despite of looks to age, I want you to know something.  I know what it’s like to feel like an outcast. To feel like you don’t belong anywhere, and you never have enough friends. I know what it’s like to be hurt. Heartbroken. Bullied endlessly. I know what it’s like to feel like you can do nothing right, or to feel like this is all too much to take on. But I want you to know I’m here for you. No matter if you feel rejected, hurt, afraid, angry, disappointed, lost, depressed, lonely, isolated, to any other problem, you are an amazing person. I know its hard to be yourself in a world trying to make you like everyone else, but staying true to who you are is even more important. The remarks people have made about you are not true. I don’t even have to know you that well, in order to see that you are worth somebody’s attention to the potential your life possesses. You are not just anyone. You are You. And that is beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you anything different. Sometimes in life we have to go through the hardest times in order to truly get to where we belong. I know it is so hard to be so strong even at a young age. I’m in high-school, and I understand with experience how hard it can be. If you feel like you can’t escape and using self harm is a way to cope, I need you to know this. Even though I have never self harmed myself, I can tell you this. Every time you reach for that blade or any other object like that, I want you to look in the mirror. And say you are somebody who’s going far in life. You are loved. You are beautiful. You are You. And nothing will ever chance that. To those feeling alone, you are never alone. Sometimes it’s good to be alone sometimes, you become your best friend. You truly learn to love yourself, and have a self-confidence not many earn. But remember that many friends and family are always here for you. It is okay to feel like you are lost or even broken, but the thing is, you are never going to be that way forever. The past does not define who you are. Not even the worst mistakes. You can turn your life around with just one smile, to just one thought. To anyone going through a rough time, who feels like the hardship just won’t win. I want you to know, you aren’t the only one. You are such an amazing person who is so strong and smart. You know who you are and not many people seem to these days. I hope who ever reads this feels better about themselves and start’s to smile. Because to me, anything makes a difference. I know what it’s like to be bullied to going through my parent’s divorce, re-marriage to my sibling and father’s depression, and many many unforgettable times. I just need you to know that you are truly beautiful inside and out. Never forget that. Stay strong (:

Dear You (Yes, YOU)

18 Nov

Dear You, (yes, you)

Let me start off this by telling you that if you’re currently considering taking your own life, I’m writing this letter in the hopes that you will listen so that you won’t go through with it.

I’m writing this for the lost, the misguided, the hurt, the confused and the lonely. This is for the depressed whose feelings worsen with each passing day … The outcast who goes off to sit alone and each their lunch away from the cafeteria. This letter is for those who cry in private for fear of letting someone publicly see their tears. This letter is for the bullied and the broken, for the self-harmers who battle daily to overcome.

This letter is for all those who have been left out, alienated, ostracized, belittled, shamed and shunned. For all of you – young, adult, old and in between – who feel like no one hears your silent pain. For all of you who feel like the daily pressures of life and all the stresses that come with it are just too much.

This letter is for all of you.

I hear you. And I understand.

I know that it might be hard for you to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. And I know that what you’re feeling right now is unbearable. I’ve been there. So allow me to speak from experience.

Whatever you’re going through emotionally? It will pass. I’m sure that fact is difficult to believe because you’re in the middle of your tough situation. But it will fade, because pain is only temporary. And suicide is NOT a way out.

Please consider for a moment those who love and care about you. How would they feel, losing someone so close to them so abruptly? How would they feel knowing your life was snatched away without warning? How would they deal with the aftermath?

A dear friend of mine took his life and I will always, always miss him. I still deal with feelings of confusion, anger and deep sadness. I still wonder why … And what more I could have done for him.

In the past, I was the victim of vicious bullying for a grueling couple of years. I felt like I was trapped. I wanted it all to end. I was desperately searching for an escape. And yes, suicide was an option that I heavily considered. I was drowning in my sorrow and I tried to take my own life.

But just think if I had gone through with it.

I would never have become such a passionate person who speaks out so strongly against bullying and cyber-bullying. Just think if I had gone through with killing myself. I wouldn’t be here, penning this letter in an attempt to reach you right now.

You have a purpose in life. That very sentence might be hard for you to put your faith in because of what you’re going through right now. But you do have a reason for being on this Earth. You might not have discovered that specific reason yet … but if you go through with suicide? You’ll be cheating yourself – and the World – from finding out what that true purpose is.

Your life has meaning. Your soul is priceless! Priceless.

And I realize it’s hard … but life carries both the sweet and the sour. Be easy on yourself, we all struggle. Take things one day at a time. Every second that we are alive is another chance to turn it all around. Please don’t give in and cut your days short before you’ve truly, truly had a chance to live!

I made it through some of the darkest times in my life and I’m still here. Stand with me and show that you’re a Survivor, too. Just know I’m wishing you the best … whenever and wherever you are.

And if you ever need a listening ear? I’m here.

Hope exists.

Love & light! xo – Simply Undrea

Dear Bully, you made me immune to pain

3 Aug

Dear Bully

You clapped me, it’d hurt, but it made me a peaceful person.

You took my notes, i was punished for it, but it taught me to keep everything in my head.

You made me cry, it made you laugh, but it made me stronger.

You ate my lunch, it left me hungry, but it trained me not to worry about lunch at work.

You made me clean your desk each morning, it was fun for you, but it trained me to clean the workshop every morning.

Thank you bully, you made me immune to pain, patient and someone’s best friend.

Your sweetest enemy Me

Dear Boy in Middle School

7 Jun

I’m a senior in college and I still am hurt from a boy in middle school. This one is for you. You probably never realized what a huge impact your bullying caused for my life. I have severe trust issues, hard time keeping friends and am over emotional about every comment someone makes about me. You called me ugly, made me feel dumb for being smart, and make the whole school hate me just to make yourself feel good. You called me Medusa and told everyone that if they looked at me they would turn to stone. So, no one ever took the chance of being my friend. I was alone in a time of need and that is all your fault. My first suicide attempt was that week. I’ve had 4 more since then. Hopefully, you’ve grown to be a better person and learned what a cruel, selfish, rude individual you were for making my life so awful from such a young age.
