If I hadn’t heard you all the way back in 8th grade I truly think I would be different. Without meeting you, I don’t think I would accept myself the way that I do and I don’t think I would be comfortable saying I am completely imperfect and still be able to say, “I’m okay with that.” And this thank you isn’t just from me. I will be the voice for all the other kids in my school who want to than you and admit that they feel pain but are too afraid to speak up.
