This is a project I hold dear, not only because of its purpose to help victims, but also because it is very personal and intimate to me. I hope that many other bullying survivors will understand the necessity of reaching out back to the kids who are suffering and help them get through their own struggle.

As hard as it is to revisit our own experiences, to reveal the most vulnerable corners of our souls and almost feel like exposing to world-wide bullying our children-self, it's something we must try to do... 

OMG! my very first DD! thank you :iconnylelevi: for the suggestion and to everyone else for your wonderful comments and to each of you who have shared your own stories! this is my biggest reward, the response I hoped for, I am truly happy that I've managed to give some of you a bit of hope! Really, thank you so much!

I'm so thankful you made this! Even if I haven't been in the same situation I know many who are, and this is such a huge help for these people. Also it touches hearts. And lost souls. And gives hope. I honestly respect you for doing this, and I find this amazingly inspiring not just for my art but also for my life. So thank you! :hug:

Thank you too! and don't despair, you still have a beautiful teenagehood ahead. Be happy, a smile is the best anti-bullying shield there is :) Enjoy yourself doing things you like, learn as many things as possible because now is your only chance to accumulate skills. Trust me in your adulthood you will thank yourself for them and for having given yourself the authority of knowledge :)
be strong :hug:
