Don't Give Up!

October is National Anti-Bully Awareness Month.
I for one take this month very seriously and try to do everything that I can to get the word out there about bullying and the effects that it can place on a person.

Because of bullying in high school I began to self harm myself and also acquired extreme depression and anxiety that I still struggle with today. But some how I am still here. Some how I made it through all of the crap that other kids said and did to me. And I am proud of myself for that.

There are still those people that are in the battle field. Trying to defend themselves every day for something that they cannot control. Because most of the time they are bullied for just being who they are. 

I now want you to take the time to watch this amazing girl named Jillian Jensen sing for X-Factor USA...
She is 19 years old and was severely bullied in high school for exactly what she is doing on that stage.
She is a beautiful, caring, amazing person but yet others strive to tear her down and tell her she's no go.
But my friends.. I laugh at those bullies now because they are eating their words now. 
She stuck to who she was and what she wanted to be and now she is there!!! 

Stay true to yourself, love others, and don't give up!


  1. I would be lying if I said I didn't cry during this video. What a beautiful post Katlyn! I can not believe that girl was bullied for singing, she is incredible! Thank you so much for sharing this!

    1. Oh, don't worry I cried like a baby when I watched it!
