So I usually don’t write posts about other people (not because I am stuck up or full of myself) because I am scared of what that person might think. But a few things lately have made me want to write this post for about a week now. I’ve known this person for a while now. We went to Jr. High together and graduated together. And this person is super nice and super sweet. But this person… isnt like any other person. This person has something special.
I didn’t realize how much someone who looks soo perfect from the outside can be going threw soo much on the inside. I don’t think I would EVER be able to do what this person does- posting YouTube videos about his life and himself and well.. being gay.
Now I am not saying that being gay is a bad thing, it is not! It’s wonderful! :) But I know people who are gay, lesbians, dark, light, black or white go threw soo much hurt and pain everyday because I am sorry to say we live in a horrible horrible world.
Where is the love knowing that we can all live on this world in peace? Where is the love in loving your children because they chose to be something, because there living and breathing.
Where is the love when people who could be so perfect on the outside could be breaking on the inside.
Now, I don’t know. A few of you reading this may be thinking…. “Hala doesn’t know what she’s talking about? She grew up a sheltered life.” Yes. I’m sheltered. But that doesnt mean that I don’t feel things either? That I don’t see things?
I know that my friend Brendan is going threw a lot finding himself. And I feel like I am in a way aswell? That’s probably why I didn’t really fit in at school. I didn’t really follow the status quo as they call it. I wasn’t popular or had designer clothes. I didn’t go out and drink and party and hang with the cool cats (do people still say that?) I chose to do other things- go to school, obsess over celebrities. Go home. Feel horrible about myself, work, work, work. Go to sleep. Wake up and do it all over again.
I didn’t have anybody there sending me positive messages or telling me “I get what your going threw.” Nope. Instead I took in all the negativity and hate and name calling and finger pointing and crying and regection and I did something about it.
I started to not care what other people thought of me. Is liking the Jonas Brothers really THAT big of a crime?… didn’t think so ;) is being gay that big of a crime? UHM.. NOPE!!!!!!
Exactly. It’s not. So instead of saying something mean about somebody. THINK before you act.
Brendan, thanks. Thanks for making such inspiring YouTube videos! You seriously are changing the world!! Don’t listen to what hurtful people say. You are so nice and sweet and amazing (And always blew me away with your acting in Drama Class- I was just too shy at the time to say anything :/) You are my real life inspiration. And threw your YouTube videos I have gained confidence with things I have been struggling with. I know you will find someone who loves you exactly the way you are, so don’t give up hope!!!
ANYWAYS!! I’m rammbling lol. Just a lot of things on my mind that I needed to get out.
P.s- i couldn’t really think of any other picture to post for this, so I used Jeniffer Lawrence cause she is amazing and inspiring and it’s late and I’m tired and yeah…
TRUE THAT! :)
