Hello, I am the write of the blog ‘periodt’ and I am really thankful for this platform because I can talk about things that I struggle with and that a lot of people can relate to. But today I didn’t want to talk about more of what I go through, although there will be more in the future. Today I wanted to do an appreciation post for everyone. My followers, new arrivals, everyone. So enjoy.
I just want to say that if you are here right now, I am proud of you. I know that everyone reading this has gone through at least one hard time in their life. You may be going through it right now. But no matter how big or small that event was, you are here and you have done so well to still be here today. You can make it. I am not going to say it is all up hill from here because I really don’t know, but hey, you are so strong and so appreciated. If you have made it this far you can make it the rest of the way. And I know you may feel like giving up, you may feel like you have no energy left to keep going but please, if not for yourself, do it for me. I need you here, we all need you here and if you leave then the whole world is going to be missing a you. You may not see it now but in the future you are going to impact the world in some way. Please just hold on for a little longer. One day you are going to realize you aren’t alone and your story will help so many other people who may be going through something similar.
I also wanted to speak directly to people who identify as a man at any point in their life. Your feelings are valid. You having emotions is OK. You showing emotions is OK. You wanting to wear something more ‘feminine’ is OK. You being vulnerable is OK. Everything you do is OK. I am not a man but I know that you can feel as though you can’t cry, or be yourself, or do something you want to do but can’t because you are a man. If you identify as a man and you do something that is stereo-typically ‘feminine’ you are no less of a man. There are so many men who take their own lives because of what society has told them and I am so sorry about that. So many men are sexualized and abused and we just don’t hear about that because society says that men would want that anyways or they can’t be abused. That is so incorrect. You may have been taught that ‘men don’t cry’ or so many other things and I am so sorry about that. The things that you go through are not any less valid because you are a man. I can’t put into words all of the things that I want to say but just be you. Do whatever it is you want to do and be confident doing it because you are who you are and if anyone doesn’t like that then they don’t deserve to have you in their lives. Speak up about how you feel, don’t be afraid to report abuse, and take up as much space as you want because this is your life and we are just living in it.
So now I am going to talk generally about everyone else. Also I would like to add that if I have upset anyone in terms of gender, I am so sorry and please comment down below what you would like me to say or not say in the future because I want to make everyone feel included. Don’t be scared to say I did something wrong because I really want to learn about all of this and I am sorry for my ignorance. But anyways, lets move on. I want everyone to know that the world really is a cruel place but we need to stick together. As a generation we have gone through so much that nobody else can understand. There are so many ignorant people out there who still believe in the old views. They may still think there are only 2 genders and that being gay is wrong. I can’t speak about this personally because I am a straight girl who has caring parents but there are so many stories and videos of all the hardships you have to face and I am so sorry. You have no reason to apologize for being who you are because you didn’t have a choice. This is who you are and everyone needs to respect that. It isn’t like this is a whole new thing either. People didn’t evolve into being gay or something. Homosexuals and transgender people etc. have been around for ages it is just that bad people out there have shamed them into someone they aren’t and this generation are just the ones to start retaliating against this. You are being yourself for you, your ancestors and for the future. By standing up to idiots who think they know what is right or wrong, you are making a step into better future and I thank you for that. I am sure it is really scary what are doing because there are so many idiots but please don’t give up because you are doing great things. Never apologize for who you are. You are absolutely perfect and they are just jealous PERIODT.
Mental health wise also, no matter who you are out there, your thoughts are valid. They may not be good thoughts but it is OK to feel how you feel. You may not be fortunate enough to get free help but there are people out there you can talk to. And nobody here can say they don’t because I am here. Yes, please talk to me. I am not a professional but I am here to show you that you aren’t alone until you can get some professional help. If you are going through abuse, crime, anything, please know that you are OK and that I am here for you. You aren’t alone, this isn’t your fault, don’t feel guilty for anything you feel and I am proud of you.
Thank you all for reading this and I am looking forward to answering any comments or emails you guys send me. I appreciate you all and stay strong because the world needs a you PERIODT.
