National Suicide Awareness & Prevention Month.
Do You Feel Bullied?
Different from Everyone Else?
You Are Not Alone.
Every day, in places all over the world, people are bullied for no other reason beyond the simple fact that they are different in some way; perhaps they like different TV shows, maybe they practice a different faith, look a certain way, or perhaps they don’t fit into one specific gender role. There are people like them who are bullied every day; they are mocked, teased, made to feel inferior, and what these people need to know, just as you may need to know, is that they, and you, do not deserve to be bullied.
You Do Not Deserve To Be Bullied.
Yet, even with this knowledge, some feel that they have somehow brought it on themselves, that perhaps the world doesn’t want them; doesn’t need them; doesn’t think they are of any value, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. You deserve to be loved, and you have value.
You Deserve To Be Loved. You Have Value.
If you feel that you are not loved, that you are alone, or that you think that you are useless, or worthless, please make use of these resources below, because you shouldn’t be suffering in silence.
