Be Who You Are

I was on the Affirmation website last night and I stumbled upon a memorial for someone I went to junior high with.  I knew him.  His name was Marshall Myers.  Two years ago, he killed himself.

I wish I had a loud voice or a blog that was read by millions, so I could shout and tell everyone that
it really is completely okay to just be who you are.

Yes, you might be rejected by some, but
by others.  I mean, you could be rejected for being a BYU fan these days, or liking the Jazz, or being a Democrat. 
But none of that is worth your life
You are worth more than what ignorant people will tell you
You are beautiful.

You are here for a purpose and the world is less without you.  There are so many people who are willing to stand around you and be your support and show you a world you can't even dream of.  It's okay to be happy.  It's okay to live.  It's okay to be who you are.
Please don't give up.

I love this! (I just found your blog, and I love the whole thing.)

THIS I would join you in shouting. Over and over and over.

Thanks for writing it!
