Broadway: It Gets Better

I've been on both sides of the bully fence.   I know how hard it is to feel different and be treated differently.   I also regret the times that I treated others badly because of their differences.  

When I was in my mid-twenties, I tried to find an out when I couldn't deal with an issue that was haunting me.   Fortunately, I had the best friends and family imaginable.   They supported me and helped me find the assistance that it took to get past that terrible, painful time - one of my friends even paid for a therapist.   I'm living proof that it definitely does get better.   

For anybody who doesn't have that built-in support system, there's The Trevor Lifeline: 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386) 

If you or a friend are in crisis, please call.  Toll free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
