"Why don't you just kill yourself? Someone at school asked me once. I think it was the kind of question intended to be cruel, but it was the first time I'd ever contemplated the possibility. I didn't know what to say. Maybe I was crazy to consider it, but I'd always hoped that if I were a good enough girl, if I did everything right, if I said the right things or said nothing at all- I thought they would finally listen when I tried to talk. I thought they would give me a chance. I thought they might finally love me.
I always had that stupid hope."
I choose this quote because it really stood out to me and made me think about a problem we have in society, bullying and it's effects. This quote reminded me of bullying because the first line, "Why don't you just kill yourself" is one of the many lines used when bullying others. This makes people think about actually killing themselves but that isn't what they should do because everyone's life is valued in this world. We were all born for a reason.
Life is precious, don't let others get to you because half of the time they bully because they are hurt themselves. Help them, to help you. .
