Suicide is never the answer. It is only a permanent solution to a temporary problem and the only solution is to continue pushing forward. If you take your life, then you're letting them win. Being yourself is not about quitting, but moving forward to be a better person than they are. =)

Let's end the hate together.

Umm, can I quote your Author's Notes? Jk, but seriously, I couldn't have said it better. I came out as Bisexual last year and I was suicidal (for several more reasons than that, but it was definitely one of the reasons) and I'm glad my attempt didn't work because I've never been happier in my life than I am now. (:

I'm really very glad that your attempts didn't work. =) I am sorry that you've had to go through so many bad things, but the world has many more good things to offer, and you would have undoubtedly missed out on them. I am glad you were able to stick around and find happiness! *hugs* =)

Any by all means, quote me! If anything, I hope it's able to help someone. =)

Another good thing that came out of it is that now, my friends come to me for advise about coming out, how do we know if we're gay/bisexual, ect. (: So now, they have somebody to talk to about it, especially since I wouldn't judge them. (:

That's absolutely great. We really need people like that in these times. I can imagine how hard it must be, especially younger teenagers and having no one to talk to or confide in. Especially for the younger generation having to deal with bullying, etc .. It's not easy and they need someone on their side.

I agree completely. With all these youths who are realizing they're homosexual, the last thing they need is to be judged or bullied, because chances are, they may already be depressed because they feel they aren't "right". Being so young, they need to realize that they aren't alone in this.

Exactly, that's why I think it's important for people, especially young adults who are just beginning to find themselves, to have someone to talk to and who supports them, no matter what.
