I Want to Be Strong

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 140 People

    I want to stand strong,

    I Did It. I Stood Up to Him.

    My ten year old brother (let's call him Jack) will be playing in a talent contest in school tomorrow for charity. He'll be playing and singing Under the Bridge by the Chili Peppers. I respect him because I wouldn't have been able to do that at his age. I lack confidence...
