Bill Zeller's Letter
On Bill Zeller's Family Situation
Even if your biological family won't listen or recognize what is going on, find someone to talk to. There is someone out there that will support you. There are groups of people that you can find who have gone through the same thing. Ask for help and understanding. Your life is meaningful, and you deserve and need to find your own worth. It's possible if Bill Zeller had found this acceptance for himself, that he might not have been pushed to such a drastic measure. One of his friends talked about a disconnect from how he perceived himself to the way his friends perceived him. I suspect the support was closer than he realized.
Same author and another great post regarding how to spot a true apology. You know, the ones that don't say "why should I apologize when you won't talk to me" or the ones that don't include phrases like "bite me" or "shit happens"... Ones who do not put conditions on you or put you to work to right their wrong doing. Never seen one of those from certain people that were in your life? I am not surprised, I have only seen real apologies from people that I know really love me as well instead of the bastardized and narcissistic version of "their love".
