Find Some Motivation

I know from experience that sometimes advice given seems like it’s just recycled and repeated, and that no one cares. But stopping and thinking about it, if someone is trying to help you, they’d have to care at least a little bit. If you’re struggling through depression or even being bullied, at least take into consideration what advice is given. What would you want to be told in their situation?

 

I haven’t been “bullied”, but I did bully myself. I have juvenile diabetes, and growing up I never felt like I fit in. The constant visits to the nurses office, not getting to eat lunch with my friends, and missing recess, made me feel like I had no true friends. I was behind in my reading because I missed Pre-K, and I felt like the only people who understood me were my teachers.  In return, I felt like I needed to make people like me. I put myself down, but to make myself feel better, I put others down.

 

It was mainly fun, I mean getting 2 elementary school girls to have a cat fight was pretty funny to watch. My fourth grade teacher opened my eyes up a little bit, she taught me that a secret was an honor to have, and to this very day I do not tell a secret and I can’t break a promise. Although my teacher helped me to see that, she wasn’t the reason I quit bullying people around me and even myself, it was my grandpa.

 

He had died that year, and I promised myself that I would show others the love he showed me. My motivation was my grandpa, so perhaps my overall advice would be to find motivation to do better not only for others, but also yourself.
