I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy, the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference.
He continued, “Especially in today’s climate, where everyone loves to be offended and upset, it truly is mind-boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for nine months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth.I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself, I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is — I see you and I love you.”
