So if you are reading this, I am thinking you are either a teen girl, in charge of a teen girl, or like teen girls. Well whatever the reason friends, we have a problem. I just left Lynchburg, VA. I am actually on the plane now, and I was listening to the news and would like to address an teen girl issue. Now I realize that some of you are totally innocent of what I am about to say, but some of you girls might not be.
When I turned on the TV this morning I heard of a young female high school student that was another victim of a lie. She bought the lie that it is better to die, than to go to school and face the bullies.
The story is as follows: The victim was a pretty girl in high school, and she caught the eye of the caption of the football team, and another handsome young man. She dated them both, and after the breakup she was rebuked by the girls that hated her because of it, and the 2 boys involved who played along with the sick game because no doubt their pride was hurt. The news made it seemed like it was a pretty rough situation because complaints had been made to the faculty and resulted in no action. The young victim walked home a few days ago with no hope. She had been called every sick and twisted name in the book. She had been yelled at publicly, she had been ridiculed for being her. She went home, while texting a friend that she was done with everything, she hung herself. She’s gone. Forever. The kids involved in the ABUSE face criminal charges.
I sat in the recliner at my sister’s house sick to my stomach. Where was this beautiful child’s soul that it was so destitute that she felt without help? My spirit grieved by the story, had to bring a couple of things to light.
First, dear sweet beautiful girls, if this is you there is hope! Do not buy the lie that there isn’t. Contact me and I will get you help! Second, if you think you might be slightly bullying someone, STOP NOW. You don’t know what the end result could be.
If you know you are a bully, please realize this, what you decide to be at a young age WILL affect you for the rest of your life. How do you want to be known? What dear child is the point of making someone else’s life miserable? You can stop, you can even apologize, and you can become amazing women that are respected for the right reason, not because you are a “mean girl”.
Why am I so passionate about this?????????????? Because we need to stick together as women! Young women, old women, tall women, short women. Our God made us all, and we can help each other out. As a matter of fact we need to help each other out. Think of what it would be like if we actually stopped this elementary behavior and decided to be women of Worth? It’s not just the teen that deals with this now, its adults too.
Please, lets do our parts. We have ONE go around on this earth, what do you want yours to look like?
