"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends. "- Albus Dumbledore

And to anyone else that may be hurting, find someone to talk to, whether it be an online friend, IRL friend, family member, therapist, etc. No one should have to hold things like this in.
