Yes I Have and I am Glad I Did.
So it was this year I decided to tell someone for the first time. I was on the way pack from a highschool volleyball friend and tolda a few of my closest friends. I dont know why I was compelled to tell them but I am glad I did. Because it has helped me to begin to turn my life around. Those few amazing girls convinced me to tell an adult who I trusted. Sure I didnt really know the adult I first told but I got to know them. It was a great help to tell someone and to know that people really do care. You just need to find someone who does. And once you do it really can only go up it did for me. I now consider myself has having a support system. It took almost 15 years but it really was worth it. And I am going into my second year of higschool strong healthy & happier than last. So really the best thing anyone can do is tell someone. I know that it is hard but it is really a good thing to do. And what is the worst that can happen? Not much.
