Follow The Ocean by sweet-innocent-aura Follow The Ocean by sweet-innocent-aura
Because life is never easy
Because some people try to hurt you
Because you might feel alone
Because you can think your existence is ridiculous
Because you don't know how to fight that hate...

If you follow the ocean of souls...
You will realize you are not alone
You will learn from others' experiences
You will be stronger
You will win the battle against the haters
You will be yourself
You will be happy
You will reach the light

I can tell you about me. I have suffered bullying since the first day of high school (I was 12 years old, until I left it at 18). Death threats, pushing me downstairs, enclosing me in class alone several times, called "nerd" and some other things. I was sooo ugly (braces, terrible acne, wild hair, glasses...) and I wanted to disappear... but I learned I could be amazing, so I kept studying, getting great marks, haters hated me more but I was proud of myself. And braces were gone, so did the acne, I started wearing contacts and my hair got better. I felt really happy, but not because I was "pretty" again. I had won the battle, I became a young lady and good person
:iconpurplesparklesplz:

I know it was not related to my sexual orientation, but as you can see people hate without knowing you.
You can change it, DON'T GIVE UP! :love:

va ser molt dur i encara en pateixo algunes conseqncies, per m'alegra saber que he arribat molt ms lluny que ells en tots els sentits :)

encara que ltimament he estat bastant "engabiada". m'he fet moltes preguntes a mi mateixa, sobre qu vull, qu no vull, on anar, qu fer... per ho he superat :D ara s que vull seguir estudiant la meva carrera, canviar la meva actitud vers ella perqu realment no s el que vull, no vull ser professora ni res d'aix... me n'he adonat del gran buit que he tingut aquests anys sense poder estudiar dibuix, i ja ho considerava una oportunitat perduda... per no. vull treure'm la carrera i dedicar-me a all que la meva nima demana :aww: he nascut per a crear art!

s important saber escollir, i malgrat que no vulguis dedicar-te a la sortida que t'ofereix la carrera, ja que t'obre moltes portes. s important tamb que tinguis les coses clares, t'ajudar tamb ^^

Bona sort amb tot ^^

I passed almost through the same, but without the bullying... Today I feel awesome with myself, though there's some details I'm still working on. p:

But that's the spirit, Aura-chan~ Keep showing your beautiful smile to everyone so they can see how victorious you are~ :meow:

Im always surprised when I hear how many people get bullied in school D: I suppose I either didnt notice it or we didnt have any cases of bullying in my grade :B

However, there were quite a few guys outside of my grade (most of them were younger than me :|) who thought it would be funny to harrass me and my friend...but they never went as far as to actually threaten us with death o.o
I dont look like it, (and dont really like it, either) but when people try to intimidate me, I can get very violent...most of the time it was more effective to just tell the teachers or even the principal about it, though :) (did you tell them back then? :?)

Anyway, I cant believe that people are so intolerant towards others with an uncommon sexual orientation :(
Its not like you can actually CHOOSE who you love - I myself have the opinion that Ill fall in love with a person and their personality - and not their gender! :giggle:

I told teachers and that is why I'm here ^^ the thing is that they used to thing it was something from teenagers, even if when I almost go downstairs my teacher was in front of me and she didn't give the importance it had.

and yes, why focusing on the gender? it's a soul, no matter the body it has!

Yes, because the fact is that you where always stronger than them. Even if you didn't know it, you were always above the hate and slander that they gave so many others. It typically reflects themselves for what's in store for their futures, but then again, the same went for you. You're smart, beautiful and kind-hearted because you made the choice to mold yourself in that way.

Keep striving, dear sister~

I think that bullying just for the sexual orientation is just a stupid excuse. they hate, they need an excuse to keep hating and hating even more. they hated me for my good grades. late because I didn't follow them to the disco. Later because I was healthier than them, without a single drop of alcohol in my veins. Later because boys didn't think I was a sl..., a dirty girl, so they trusted me more than the rest of girls.

excuses? several. hate? the same kind every single time.

I'm just glad you didn't give into temptation and lash out at those people. That would've meant that you stooped to their level; their poisoned words being portrayed as 'correct' in their deluded minds. I know you're much better than that, Carla. You're a down to earth, sweet young woman. One in a million. :)

I posted 2 of my drawings in 'adapted version' in the Spirit Day folder of DA.
Yesterday DA contacted me if they were allowed to use one for their promotional site on facebook.
I agreed and they put it on the site some time ago.

Here's the link: [link]

Amazing to see how fast the number of likes grows by the minute...
the drawing is getting a lot of favs as well ... so people get aware more and more ! Finally.......
