be Normal

Growing up I’ve never been the accepted type. I always wanted to fit in and be part of the group. Then at 16 I was accused of rape and it tore my world apart, friends deserted me and people would physically and mentally hurt me. A year later I cleared my name but 8 years later I am still brought down by people mentioning it.

Everyone goes through hard times and some good times, but the hard times just show us how strong we are and how much pain we can endure. Throughout my teenage years I self harmed and I’m not ashamed to say that I used to do it.

Be Yourself, Be Strong & Be Normal
