Pixar Animation Studios released this wonderful film featuring employees telling personal stories of coming out and what would have happened if their life came to an end.
I am so glad to see all these groups and individuals literally coming out and telling our teens that there is nothing worth ending your life over.
Whether you are LGBT, you are one of the unpopular kids, or you feel alone every time you go to school, adolescence SUCKS. It even sucks for the people who are picking on you because they’re doing what they can do to be “cool.” Just remember they’re doing what they know to do to get through this crap.
But keep at it. Talk to someone. know you are cared about, even if by a stranger. And when you graduate and when you go on into adulthood, you will find more and more people who share your qualities and who love you for who you are.
Listen to the stories of these people. I know folks just like ’em. It gets better. Thank you, Pixar!
