I've been diagnosed with ADD since i was 7. I've known I was bisexual since i was 13. I realized you don't get to choose who to fall in love with at 14. I learned not everyone will accept what I define myself as if it doesnt fit theirs at 16. I learned life is to short to end it yourself at 12. I learned not everyone is going to notice when something is wrong at 6. I learned my opinion matters nothing but spending time with me is worth everything at 15. I learned even family doesn't have to accept you at 16.
I learned sometimes you need to take the first step to being who you want to be regardless of what everyone else defines you as at 16.
