Cool You Cannot Destroy Me! - August 8th 2009, 07:42 AM

Hey

I was at Camhs the other day and I was talking about how like well over a 1000 kids pretty much hate me... which is no exxageration. And a month or so ago I took an overdose, because one guy (my ex) screamed at me to fxck off (well that wasn't the reason, but it was the final trigger).
And my mental health nurse was like: how come so many people 'hate' you and give you abuse, and you do nothing, and one guy comes along and hurts you, and you try to commit suicide?

I didn't even have to think to explain... and I wanted to share this with everybody to show how much bullies don't matter.

I've been bullied since I was eight, I'm now nearly 15. I'm so used to it now, none of it matters. You see, I don't care about those thousand or so people, so why should whatever they say or do hurt me? I cared about that man so so goddman much (still do), that it hurt like a thousand knives being stabbed into me at once. But the masses, I don't care about them. They don't matter to me anymore. The people you care about, they're the ones that hurt you. If you don't care about the masses - the bullies - what they say doesn't matter. What they do can't hurt you.

You see? If you're being bullied, and you don't care about those people, why should what they say hurt? Don't let it get too you, because it the end of the day, you wouldn't care at all about their lives, so what does it matter what they think of yours?? As Gerard Way puts it, if people are nasty to you, just look right at them, and just be like: You Cannot Destroy Me!
Cuz sure as hell thats how I think when a group of kids try to beat me up, or say shit to me.

I just wanted to share that.

Hey Bex

Just wanted to say how proud I am of you; bullying isn't an easy thing to get over, and it takes quite a strong person to do what you're doing!
I'm gald everything seems to be getting better for you, and I hope people can take some inspiration from what you've done.

Take care.

I fully agree with you.
It does takes a lot to get over bullying and when people like you who have gone through it and understand and realize that it means absolutely nothing for a complete stranger to say things to you. They don't know a thing about you, so what should what they say matter?

I am very glad you are not letting idiots try and hold you back and break you down.

PM me if you ever want to chat
