    Dearest Trinity,
    I am so sorry for our suffering. It must be so frightening to be bullied for just being yourself. I can't imagine what that would be like. Please know that we are thinking of you and that somehow, some way you're going to get through this and come out stronger for it. Please don't give up hope. We are cheering for you.
    Sending love your way,
    Robin

    Trinity please know that you are cared for by more than you could possibly imagine! I have no idea who you are but my heart goes out to you. I have high functioning anxiety that require meds. I have some PTSD from the military. I have had a loved one commit suicide. I've been through a lot and instead of letting it beat me into the ground I try to look at things as life lessons. There are incredibly cruel people in this world, don't let them tear you down hun. I'm in Spotsy if you need someone to talk to!

    Dear Trinity,

    I'm sorry to hear that you are in pain. I want to know that you were born perfect, and there are people--some whose paths have not yet crossed yours yet, others whose have--whose lives are and will be better because of you being in the world. Connect with your people (those who love and respect you) in every way that you can. Feel the love we are sending.

    Dear Trinity,

    Please know that you are not alone. I am a total stranger and I deeply care about you. I wouldn’t go back to my teenage years if you paid me a billion dollars. Teenagers (and unfortunately some adults who still haven’t matured beyond their teenage years) are upset and lash out at anyone who is either just like them (but they are too afraid to admit it), or different from them. Hang in there... life truly does get better. When you go off to college or enter the real world... you get to pick the people you spend time with and you will find a WHOLE tribe of people just like you. Teenage years are temporary (not trying to minimize)... just want you to know there is so much more out there for you to experience, to enjoy, to grow from, to get to know your beautiful self, to feel what true love, happiness, and acceptance for yourself feels like. You WILL get there... just hang on for the ride. SENDING LOVE, hugs, strength, acceptance, knowledge, patience, resilience, comfort, more hugs, and grit. You got this. Tell the people who love you what you need. Hugs, hugs, and more hugs.

    I'm sending a book and card to Trinity (because real mail is special).
    Rise up, love.

    Hi Trinity,
    I am from Kentucky and I grew up in a small town with some people that made it rough on anyone they thought were too different from them. I was different so it was difficult on many days. I don't mean I know what you are going through, I do not have a clue about what you went or are going through, but i hope you can feel the love from different me and others. I learned when I grew up that the different me was greatly needed in a world of "cookie cutter like everyone else" factories. I also found other people, like me, to be friends and family I needed. You can find them too in larger cities and university towns. I am sending you good thoughts, and courageous love to help you through your tough times. Someday, you may be the perfect person to help someone else through their tough times. X0X0 J

    Trinity -

    I am so sorry to hear you are suffering, I can't imagine what it feels like to be bullied. Sometimes life is not fair and it can be really hard. What I do know: we need you here with us. The world needs what you have to offer, and there are people who will support you. Your tribe exists. You are special, and different is AMAZING.
    Sending a hug and love your way.
  • Jen
    Hi Trinity,
    Sounds like you are hurting right now. Teenage years can be very tough, but they pass! Keep asking for what you need. Keep asking for help and support when you need it. Sending love and hugs your way.
  • Trinity,

    I cannot speak to the LGBTQ aspect of your life from my own experience, but I am sorry that you and so many others are treated badly because you are in that group. It's tough enough to deal with issues of mental health without that--and that *is* speaking from personal experience. Please try to hang on. You are not alone, and while I'm aware of some places that could offer support for you and your mother/rest of your family, I will leave that to those who know more about them than I do.

    I care about you, and even as a stranger I will never meet, it matters to me that you stay alive.

    Dear Trinity,
    What you are experiencing is a feat of the soul. There are most likely days that it feel like no one understands what is going on within you. I want you to know that many people do care about you so very much. You have a beautiful purpose in life. Finding what that is will be the most challenging adventure you will ever face. You were made EXACTLY as you are meant to be. The second you existed you were perfect and whole, and you still are and always will be just as you are. There is NOTHING wrong with you. The people around you who hurt you and have their hearts wrapped in steel are so lost and afraid. Their actions show just how far they are from their purpose. It took me so long to understand that I deserve to love myself. It's so hard to do that when it feels like the world around you doesn't. What I learned is that we can't be loved by people who do not love themselves first, and those are their battles. Not ours.

    You're name means 3 of... three is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end. The power of three is universal and is the nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. The trinity is proof that you are a divine soul living a human experience and have something very important to share with the world.

    Find a way to create and get the feelings within you out. Painting, writing, doodling....anything that uses that beautiful creativity in your heart will begin to soothe you. It's not for anyone else but you. Get lost in it.

    When the moments seem impossible just take it one step at a time. Breathe in and out and only pay attention to that. Then find your feet. Close your eyes and feel roots coming out of your feet going deep into earth, wrapping around the core and sending all that nourishing energy right back up to you, through you. You belong to this Earth and feeling a part of it is your right. You can always come back to this place. Breathe and find your feet. Moment by moment, day by day... You are loved and cherished.

    Dear Trinity,
    I am a lesbian and I grew up in a small, rural town as well. I have also struggled over the years with anxiety and panic. If you take one thing away from this, know that you are not alone. There are many of us who have hidden in the shadows afraid to show who we are to those who may seek to hurt us. You, at the core of your being, are well and good. Do not let others make you feel small and alone. You are so much more than even you know and you will do amazing things with this beautiful life. One day others will open their eyes and realize how wonderful it is to be unapologetically yourself and to love with your whole heart based on who a person is rather than their gender. Those people will be sad that they wasted so much time being afraid and will see us as the brave ones that dared to be authentic in a world full of people playing pretend. Sending you so much love sweet Trinity. It will get better.

    Always,
    Emmie

    Hi Trinity!
    I am sending you so much love right now! I know it’s hurting and you are suffering, but keep your head up. Everyone has the right to love whomever they want and there is nothing wrong with you!
  • Jennie E
    Dear Trinity,
    You are NOT alone and it gets better. Coming out and dealing with peoples' intolerance is so scary. Take heart knowing that there is a bigger world out there than your school and your town even if right now it feels like those people are all that matter and all you see. You WILL find a community of people who love and understand you - and this world will continue to improve. You are a part of that movement, too - and by being brave enough to be out, you are making a difference. Sending love and thanks for your bravery.
    Jennie
  • Talia Vail
    Hey Trinity, keep your head up. I know it’s rough to deal with, but just know you’re not alone. I’ve had to deal with bullying and depression and suicide attempts and I promise you, it really does get better. I just turned seventeen, so I know being a teenage doesn’t help much either, but hey, most things suck when you’re this age. There’s lots of people out here rooting for you. Sending love from California. Maybe i’ll see you out here during college
  • Jami McBride
    Hi Trinity, I'm so sorry that you are suffering. My heart hurts when others suffer because I too know suffering. My suffering is not identical to yours, but I know that suffering no matter the type is a horrible feeling. I had not been exposed to much bullying, but there were times when I was the minority & that was scary. I have learned that loving myself is really the only way past the suffering. Self love also is the key to loving others. Please find the brutiful parts of you & love them with all your might! You are beautiful because you're my sister! I love you & all your pain. You're ENOUGH just the way you are! <3
  • Wendy
    Trinity, my heart really hurts for you. Being a teenager is usually enough drama for any person, but add to the mix a small town and a bullying issue makes it tougher. I wish I could shield you from mean comments and hurtful acts, but I can't stop the bullies from here. I can tell you that you are the expert on you, not the bullies. So, when you can - seek out a calm place and a kind person - if that isn't possible where you are then I hope you can hop on a computer and send someone like me a message to vent, talk. or whatever.

    Believe it or not, it gets better. There will always be stupid people out there who bully others, but there are also people like me who listen. While I myself am not LGBTQ, I support those who are. My husband and I are teaching our children to be respectful and kind to everyone. So, if you want to "talk" to someone who can be there for you. Count me in. ~ Wendy
