I have been on TV, on the radio, in the newspaper and magazines and online news sites. All because:
- I stand up for myself
- I stand up for others
- I stand up for causes I believe in
- I refuse to back down to bullies
- I refuse to be treated like a second class citizen
- I refuse to let people walk on me
- I share my message
- I will not give up
But, that does NOT mean I am an “attention whore” as I have been called. It means that I am true to myself. and if my life makes others uncomfortable in theirs, well, then, so be it.
This past weekend I had a really bad time dealing with some things that nearly crippled me last year. I was headed to a dark and depressed place that I crawled out of finger hold by finger hold. It would have been so easy to fall back into that comfortable familiar place. But I decided that I fought too hard to be where I am and I’m not going back there. You will not do that to me, again.
So I am raising my head high, and carrying on. I’ve discovered that the dogs who bark the loudest, the ugliest most snarly ones are the ones that run out of steam the quickest. Hate is hard to sustain.
Moving on. I am moving on. I’m not keeping friends,or making enemies. I am simply moving on and going about my life. I am planning out what I want to do for the next year. You guessed it, there will be lots of press and I will be trying as hard as I can to get the word out to everyone who listens that no one deserves to be bullied, not by their so-called “friends”, not by anyone. I will not NOT stop my mission.
I was all set sing a different song at our school talent show. I love to sing- it’s such a great way to express yourself. . Right before the show, I decided to change my son to show how I was feeling:
These are the lyrics.
I stare at my reflection in the mirror Why am I doing this to myself? Losing my mind on a tiny error I nearly left the real me on the shelf
Don’t lose it all in the blur of the stars Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing It’s okay not to be okay. Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart, Tears don’t mean you’re losing, Everybody’s bruising Just be true to who you are
Brushing my hair, do I look perfect? I forgot what to do to fit the mold. The more I try the less it’s working, ‘Cause everything inside me screams : NO, NO, NO NO NO NO!
Don’t lose it all in the blur of the stars ,Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing, It’s okay not to be okay Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart. But tears don’t mean you’re losing,Everybody’sbruising There’s nothing wrong with who you are
I love this song. I love this message.
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH WHO YOU ARE!
It was SUCH a great show- I loved seeing how energetic and ROCKIN’ this band was!
I really enjoyed the concert.
As much as I likes seeing the band, I LOVED looking at the huge & awesome Juniors section. Macy’s takes teens SERIOUSLY! Ya know how so many junior sections only have small sizes? Not Macy’s! I checked out the Juniors Plus section on line, and I was blown away~ I really need Macy’s to adopt me to be a clothes model. I swear I found SO many outfits I love! I could be the REAL TEEN FASHION STYLIST for plus sized girls! C’mon Macy’s, what do you say?
Look at all these clothes! I have a semi-formal coming up,and I found the dress I need! I love that Macy’s enticed me in with the concert, but really caught me with the clothes! (and they have AWESOME makeup section).
