  • I want to talk about like when I started

  • You know , go to school and stuff,

  • and a lot of people put me down

  • You know what I mean ?

  • a lot of people tease each other .

  • I mean. People come up and say

  • Hey ! ah you know ,you're too short, you're too tall

  • You look .... whatever !

  • and different hair and all that .... it doesn't matter !

  • when you're growing up in life it actually sort of matters

  • to people how you look.

  • and than it matters to you because it matters to others !

  • Why? Why does it matter how you look?

  • Because if they don't like you then who will?

  • if they don't accept you then who will?

  • And the fear that we have is that we're gonna be alone

  • that we're not good enough. And you know we have to change ourselves.

  • you know so many people put me down and said ,Nick, you look too weird and no one is really your friend.

  • and you can't do this and you can't do that.

  • And I couldn't change anything. It isn't like I was fixing my hair one day and everything was fine.

  • it isn't like, you know... just whatever .

  • I couldn't change my circumstance.

  • I couldn't just one day wake up and say Hey!

  • give me arms and legs. I need arms and legs !

  • But it was so hard because people put me down.

  • and I started believing that I was not good enough. I started believing that I was a failure.

  • That I would never ever be somebody who people would like , people would accept.

  • and it was so hard, man. I thought to myself : "You know?

  • I can't go on the soccer field like everybody else !

  • I can't ride my bike and I can't skateboard and all these sort of things !

  • I started getting depressed.

  • I thought, what kind of purpose do I have to live? I mean, are you just here to live to die

  • I mean

  • is there not a purpose for me? is there not a purpose in life ?

  • and I had questions and no answers and I asked my mum and dad ,why did this happen?

  • I asked doctors why did this happen ? they don't know .

  • There are some things in life that are out of your control

  • that you cann't change and you gonna live with

  • The choice that we have, though, is either to give up or keep on going.

  • I want to ask you, what are you gonna believe ?

  • are you gonna believe in yourself or are you gonna believe everybody else's judgment on you

  • are you gonna believe people when they say that

  • you're a failure

  • That no one really likes you. That no one really cares about you .

  • And It isn't really to say that you need somebody to come up to you

  • and say , Hey! I really like you and I really care about u.

  • you know , it is not about that,

  • but it's the fact that people put you down.

  • people don't even look you in the eye.

  • people ask you how you are and you say fine but you are not really fine and they'll never know that.

  • I tell you life is interesting. Life is a journey.

  • so what do you do when you fall down? get back up everybody knows to get back up.

  • but I tell you there're some times in life where you fall down

  • and feel like you don't have the strength to get back up.

  • I'm down here ,

  • face down and I have no arms and no legs

  • it should be impossible for me to get back up

  • it should be impossible

  • for me to get back up but it's not

  • You see , I'll try one hundred times to get up and if I fail one hundred times

  • if I fail and I give up , do you think that I'm ever gonna get up?

  • No !

  • but if fail and I I try again.

  • and again and again for as long as I try

  • there is always that chance of me getting up !

  • and it is not the end

  • until you have given up!

  • And just the fact that you are here

  • should persuade you

  • that you have another chance to get back up.

  • There is still hope

  • I'm not here today to tell you that I understand your pain, I don't know how it feels to be abused.

  • I don't know how it feels, I don't know how it feels

  • but I know how it feels to have a broken heart.

  • and I know how it feels to be alone

  • but I just want you to know that it's not the end.

  • it matters how you are gonna finish

  • Are you going to finish strong ?

  • and you will find that strength to get back up !

I want to talk about like when I started
