I just saw the video, and it’s probably the best video I’ve ever seen. This video resembles my life in every way. I have a learning disability, and I used to be the shyest person in my school. So, because of that, everybody pushed me around, teased me, and made fun of me. Because of my disability everybody, even teachers, told me that I would never make it; that I would never pass, etc– for 5 yrs.
In seventh grade I went to a private school that was very small with only about 30 people in the whole school, and with only 4 people in my whole grade. Now they are all my best friends. I used to pray all the time wishing that school would get better with everybody bullying me and everything, but now I don’t have to do that anymore. Everyone around me has showed me that it’s okay to be myself and that it’s okay to be different.
Now I’m confident and not afraid to show myself to the world and show who I really am. It’s hard to believe that if it weren’t for that private school, I would still be that super shy kid that would constantly be picked on. I’ve been through a lot of tough times but somehow got through it.
For those people that are going through some tough times and think that it’s not going get better, just hang in there! It’s going to get better, and even though it seems like it’s not going to, it will. Trust me. Just be yourself and it will change your life forever.
I hope everybody gets to see this message and that everybody will see this as an inspiration to be yourself and that it okay to show everybody who you are.
