Before Tumblr, I knew nobody who was interested in the same things as me — I was labelled as a freak as well as numerous other names, and I went along with it. Then, somehow, I found Tumblr and I found people who shared common ground with me. I made friends, something which I struggle to do in real life. I’m still making friends, and they’re all such amazing people. People around me in real life may not notice a change in my personality, but I do. I’m no longer scared to be myself, I’m no longer shy and I can find people I can relate to. I also went through a rough part in my life when I was suffering from depression (it runs in my family) and my new-found friends and the people who ran advice blogs were able to help me through it all. I’m so grateful. I don’t know where I’d be right now without Tumblr.
