Hello ladies and gentlesteves and welcome to another blog of mine. Today I want to talk about a subject that bothers me a lot. School. Now, this blog will most likely be a big block of text, but I'd appreciate if you took the time to read it.
For me, school is just a thing I go to all day to learn. I do not enjoy school at all because of it's unfairness. I have only a few close friends in real life, and I love those friends because they're always there for me and give me happiness.
You see, in my school, people who play minecraft and computer games are treated worse than "normal people", especially girls. With boys, they're "supposed" to play Skyrim, Call of Duty and other shooting-y games. With girls, you're supposed to paint your face until you look fake and plastic and spend your life taking photos of yourself doing duckfaces and posting it on facebook with a pointless song lyric and some Xs. I'm not like that. I'm a girl who wears close to no makeup and plays minecraft and pokemon. I try to keep it a secret but it's not. People know and they call me a nerd and a geek. Today I was laughed at in technology because I had to tell people I had a Nokia (;-;) for research. I personally hate my phone and only bought it because when I got it I was a n00b and thought it was "cool". I'm sure you'll agree, this is not fair. A lot of other stuff happens that I'd rather not talk about here.
Bullying is one of the leading causes of deaths in young people under 14, and over 50% of kids in schools see bullying happen. Thousands of teenagers have suicidal thoughts as a result of bullying. I'm not proud to admit it, but I have considered suicide before. The reason I didn't is because of my amazing friends. To anyone who is considering suicide: don't do it. Someone in this world loves you and cares about you.
I try to be as happy as I can be all the time. I try to be kind to everyone and not let stuff get to me. But sometimes inside I feel like crying. My self esteem is so low now, I'm so anxious now, always worrying about weather I look okay, weather my stuff is stupid, all sorts of silly things nobody cares about. I don't want this to happen to anyone I know because I know how horrible it feels, so please, if you see someone being bullied or you're being bullied yourself, tell someone. Someone loves you, someone will be there for you.

One friend can save a life.

Thank you for reading.

if anyone is reading this now:

firstly, i wanna say that this blog post is very flawed. something that really irritates me about it is the fact that i put down the girls who wear makeup and the boys who play skyrim and cod. you wear lots of makeup? great !! you look amazing! keep going !! you play skyrim and cod? awsome! you do you hun!! you take loads of selfies! dude same!! i encourage it, self love is fab!! you play minecraft and pokemon? thats really cool!!
whatever you enjoy doing, do it! whatever you enjoy (so long as it doesnt harm others) keep going! do things for you cause it's your life!

secondly, i am aware these statistics may be incorrect, but i was thirteen and all i wanted to do was help someone, at least one person. i was (and still am!) overwhelmed with the response this got. almost 200 diamonds and over 300 comments - that's incredible! thank you all so much if you supported this.

if you're having suicidal or self destructive thoughts or actions, please please get help. i promise you it gets better and i know people say that a lot and it's hard to believe but it's true. i'm finally learning to love myself and i'm in a much better place now than i was at points. there are always gonna be bad days but life is so so worth living and amazing things will happen. if you need to talk i can't promise i'll always be here as i no longer use this site anymore but i do check up on it so feel free to send me a message. i'm gonna leave some links here so if you're feeling suicidal or like you want to hurt yourself please please please get help i urge you.

I have serious depression and I am on adult doses of anti depressents and it still hurts just as bad when I didnt have medication becuase the bullies figure out a way to get to you. I have made 2 suicide attempts both failed and I am scared for my life :

i'm so so sorry. i know you must have gone through a lot but i hope you are free of the bullies - if not please don't let them get to you. i know it's easy to say "don't let them get to you" "just ignore them" but i promise you it does get better. i heard that a lot of times and it's right, it honestly does get better. i hope you held on because it is so worth it
