I am sharing my story because I’ve been seeing many beautiful souls take their lives because of people who are mean – even brutal. These bullies do not (or will not) open their minds and realize that words hurt! My mission in life is to help people feel beautiful inside and out. I want to help anyone who is having a hard time understand that one-day it WILL BE okay and you will find your way! You will love life and you will understand why you are important to the world. Everyone is important! You are Worth it! You are Strong. You are Powerful.
