This is my best friend, Berlina.
Since kindergarten, she’s been bullied over her weight. She’s had health complications because of it. She’s changed schools because of it. And when I met her in year 7, she was still so bubbly, so full of life, you’d never believe that someone this strong was hiding so much pain. 
She’s always been there for me as a friend. Last year, she sat by my hospital bedside for hours and hours and hours after my overdose. She literally wouldn’t leave until the nurses forced everyone out. And the sacrifices she’s made for not only me but all of my friends amazes me, because she’s taken on everyone else’s pain as well as her own. 
Recently, she’s been through a lot. It’s our final year of high school and all our teachers are harassing her for ‘not putting enough effort into her studies’ despite the fact that she’s not going for an ATAR (final exam rank). She cuts the words fat and ugly into her arm. She’s dealt with death threats from one of her ex best friends. She’s had guys treat her like shit and been called a slut and a fat bitch. And so she’s starting to believe it.
Please, please reblog this if you think Berlina is beautiful, inside and out. Reblog if you have a friend who’s amazing who you want to tell all of tumblr about. 
Reblog because no one so good should feel so bad that they want to end their own life.

She is really pretty, society sucks D:

Society does suck. I think she’s very pretty! She sounds like a very nice girl… It shouldn’t matter how much she weights. She’s a beautiful, nice girl who is one of the rare people who actually care about her friends. It’s hard to find someone like that in today’s society…

This is absolutely terrifying. Just look at it, it is so real and astonishing. You need to reblog this. I don’t care if you’re used to reblogging orange, teenage girls with vans on. I don’t care if you’re used to reblogging vintage or photography. This is real. You can even see the fury in his eyes. The tense muscles in between his fingers. The heavy breathing. 

Now this brings back memories… -He looks away quickly.-

OH. MY. GOD. REBLOG THIS NOW. NOW. NOW. NOW. IF YOU DON’T I WILL FIND YOU AND MAKE YOU REBLOG IT. *cries*
