Thank you, My Chemical Romance.

Okay so since it's still MCR day here, I'm gonna share my story of how MCR changed my life for the better. You don't have to read it since it'll probably be very boring.

Okie dokie,
I guess my life started going down hill in 2nd grade (I was seven). That's when my cousin died in a drunk driving accident. Before that, I was all happy and outgoing and stuff, but then after that, I became more quiet and shy and.. scared I guess. Most of that year (and 3rd), I didn't go to school. Since I was more vunerable (spelling?) after his death, since many of my friends left me (except for maybe 2), I was bullied. I think the bullying ended around 4th grade, maybe the beginning of 5th. In 4th grade, I was very suicidal, but I'm not gonna go into all those details. 5th grade was probably the worst if you ask me. A lot of kids teased me and made fun of me and talked behind my back. I was depressed and trying to be someone I wasn't. I had maybe two friends, but one of them never hung around me. My parents also fought a ton since my cousin passed. My mom threatened to walk out on us a bunch of times too. It was horrible. I was only 10/11 and I was going through all of this.
Around the end of my 5th grade year, I discovered My Chemical Romance. They instantly made me happier. They made me, me. They made me come alive. In the 6th grade, I not only made friends because of MCR, but I found a confidence that I lost when I was 7. They honestly changed me for the better, and if I ever get to meet them, thank you wouldn't be enough. <3
