Everyone always says, ” One Direction is just another boyband”
“They only care about themselves”
One Direction is not just a boyband. They’ve changed so many people’s lives, not to mention saved them.
You see, last month, I planned on committing suicide. As I was writing my letter, my phone started ringing. Just so happened to be Little Things by One Direction. I didn’t answer the call, knowing who it was. I texted her before telling her what I was doing.
I listened to the song.
I thought about what I was doing.
I had the blade in my hand, twirling it around.
“Should I do this?” I thought.
“If I do, they win. The bullies win.”
All the sleepless nights I’ve had, where I stayed up crying.
All the times that I would tell me mum that I wasn’t hungry.
All the times I said, “It was my cat.”
All the times that I would wear jumpers.
I let the bullies get to me, I mean, who wouldn’t?
The notes they left in my lockers.
I couldn’t take it. I started self harming. I have been for almost 2 years now.
But, the point is, I didn’t commit suicide that night, because of them.
They saved my life, but they don’t even know I exist.
That’s what gets to me.
They may not know me, they may never know me, but they will always be my heroes.
