Years ago there was an anti-bullying campaign with the slogan, “It Gets Better.” Is that a lie?
Does life get better for nerds and socially awkward people?
I was a bullied nerd and still viewed by many as “eccentric” and some even have said “neuroatypical.” Yet my life is pretty awesome.
My life is so much better than I ever could have imagined that I never would have dared to dream such childish dreams.
I don’t sell sunshine and unicorns, so I won’t lie. If you do nothing, if you do not make a commitment to change, if you do not accept that you control your own destiny…It Will Not Get Better.
It does not get better, as that implies life is passive. Nothing happens unless you make it better.
