It was a very unpleasant dream.
I was very alone and ostracized in that school, and every day was a torment. We moved here from Finland when I was in seventh grade and my class pretended I was invisible from my very first day, except when they wanted to say something mean. Luckily I had one friend in my class but we didn't have all classes together.
Even though I have bad days now when it feels hopeless and like I will never find a job, I am so glad that I am here today. There have been times when I was a teenager when I considered stop existing. If it wasn't for my sister and my faith, I might not have existed today. My life changed so much when I was 14 and my english teacher invited me to her Go-spel choir and I started to actually enjoy living.
I am so grateful for life. I wish every teenager who feels like I did had someone who could help them find a reason to stay alive.
