Many people believe that the internet is just a waste of time. A place for bullies to say whatever they want without getting in trouble (cyber bullying). A place for pedophiles. And lastly, an obsession. While many people like to talk about the negative side of things, I’m here to talk about the positive side of things. You see, the internet has changed my life in ways that I never imagined would happen.
As many of you know, I was bullied badly in high school. It consisted of both physical and emotional attacks. While being sexually assaulted affected my life in how I live and see people, the emotional pain that goes with it is the most challenging. I’m not going to talk in much details about what happened but that bullying lead me to being home schooled for the last three years of high school.
Being homeschooled had its benefits. I didn’t have to wake up every morning, I can go to school in my pajamas, I walk from my class to the fridge (I mean come on, who doesn’t want that), and the best part, well in my case, I had the chance to figure out who I really am without the pressure from other people and high school. However, being homeschooled was, indeed, boring since I am the type of person who likes to learn. That was also the time where I really didn’t have any friends. I had to do something. Before starting my successful twitter account, which has now reached hundreds of thousands of people, I had another account that I had for two years. I had one follower and it was my friend from middle school. In 2010, he deactivated his account so I just had spam accounts following me. It’s like talking to a wall, really. I also followed just celebrities that time. My goodness that was boring. So on November 10, 2010, I made the decision to make a twitter account where I will just say my opinions, anything that comes up in my mind, jokes, and rants. I am basically publishing myself because I was so open with everything. Another reason I wanted to start that account is because I wanted to be friends with other people who were bullied. And I wanted to help and give advices to the people who are being bullied and suffering depression. With this twitter account, I did not tell anybody from real-life about it. I did not tell my family, I did not tell it to my only friend, no one! It’s like my little baby. I wanted it to be just for myself. I want to create it from my hard work and I don’t want other people’s opinion on it because I will just have second thoughts and having second thoughts destroy creativity.
So, it was November 10. I made it while watching The Vampire Diaries. I wish that I know what my first tweet was because that would make it so much more exciting. But that night, I started tweeting and zero followers. Second night, I went to the trending topics on twitter and started tweeting with the hashtags so my tweets can be seen by people. Three people followed me. Don’t know where they came from but thank you. Third night. I had a total of ten followers. Woah. I told myself, “If I can get 50 followers that would be so many and amazing.” Fourth night, I had a total of about 25 followers. I started getting retweeted. On that same night, I was refreshing my twitter and my follower list was growing. Long story short, my social accounts has now reached over a hundred thousand people. Some of them have probably unfollowed me now but that’s okay. Because for that one bit of their lives, they’ve seen my life and that’s such an honor since I still got them interested to follow me for that short of time.
This is the most beautiful part of all of it: these people only knew my name. I didn’t post a picture of myself until I had 20,000+ followers. my icon was a picture of robot drawing (this would give many nostalgia feels to a lot of my followers). The reason for that, I didn’t want people to follow me or not follow me based on my physical appearance, religion, and race. The only thing people knew about me were my thoughts and opinions; and beautifully, people were able to relate to me. And if they say they like it, then they’re saying: they like the real me.
The internet has made such a huge impact on my life. I can’t imagine life if I had been one of those “cool kids,” because it all comes back to that time in high school. If I had acted differently to become acceptable, I don’t think I would’ve started all of this. If I had acted differently to become accepted, I would be a fake today and there’s always that voice in my head who’s going to say, “okay you’re acting weird now. You have to stop.” Because today, I don’t care if I’m weird in front of other people or saying something weird on twitter because that’s who I am. I’ve had the privilege to grow up on the generation where you can put out yourself on the internet and get great support. I am also thankful because I’ve grown up on the internet. I used to just talk about celebrities, ranting about things, talking how bad bullying is, and how mean bullies are. But now, I talk about social issues, gender inequalities, why people are like this and that, the psychological effects of bullying, and how I want to change the world. It’s nice to see how I’ve matured as a human being. I’m also thankful that when I am old and have kids bugging me to drive them to the park, I have something to look back on since I have documented my youth on the internet.
For many of you, the internet is a place where you can watch cat videos, look at funny GIFs, and look at funny jokes. But to me, it has become an escape and success. When I didn’t have friends for a period of time, I had my followers who I can talk to and won’t judge me. When I have a question or need an advice, my followers are there. When my depression comes back, my followers are there to comfort me. And you’re probably thinking that these are just people on the internet who you will never see in real life. But in reality, these people have helped me so much in the most unimaginable way. For most of the time, you can be more honest and safe on the internet when you feel like no one understands you from the real world. That’s just my case. I wish I can give everybody thousands of followers so they know what it feels like to have that much friends. Yes, they are my friends. When I tell people about my internet story, people seem to back away because they think my internet fame is ridiculous and pointless. But it’s really not the fame. I am not famous, I’ve just been lucky to have many people who can understand me. The internet has greatly changed my life and thank you for that.
