There’s been a post circulating on Facebook about a High School reunion for Loganlea High. My first thought was I’d love to go as I set up a group for this purpose. However, whenever I tried to organise a get together, no one could make it. So I thought okay I’ll leave it at that. Then when I found out that it’s been organised and where and when it is, I knew i couldn’t make it and felt disappointed.
Then I thought about it some more. it is strange that I have Facebook friends and acquaintances now that say I was always smiling, laughing and I was an inspiration. What most people don’t know is that underneath the smile I was pretty unhappy. I’ve tried to take my life a few times. There were many factors, but people forget about some of the cruel things they said and how I felt about not fitting in. There’s been a handful of people that have always stuck by me and I appreciate that. There’s been times when I’ve almost given up. I know that I was different, but if only people took the time to say hello and get to know me. I am an inspiration because I rose above it and I’m still here.
