Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I’ll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I’ll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that “It Gets Better.”
That is the introductory paragraph that one is greeted by on the It Gets Better website. It is a pledge that all of us should take up and not only for the GLBT community but for those who are oppressed and discriminated against.
The most important step you should make, though, is to have self-respect. You need to know that to accept yourself and love yourself as who you are and what you are is the first important big step to facing intolerance, bigotry or ignorance. Overcoming other obstacles is easier when you know yourself worth. People will know how real you are as a person regardless of your gender or sexual preference when you know this fact yourself.
I believe that is part of the message conveyed by our very own Gab in her Its Get Better submission.
Please view and please be inspired to spread the message of love and tolerance.
