About 5-6 years ago, I was just one more school girl that couldn't find love and understanding in other people's eyes. I was the happiest person in the world when I was alone in my room, in my favorite corner with some books or listening to music, dreaming about friends who understand me and love me for who I am, so I don't have to pretend that I am like everybody else. Eventually, I discovered one site that I found unusual and cool in some weird, new way. I couldn't Imagine that it will shortly become crucial part in my everyday routine and help me grow up in a person that I am today.
We Heart It showed me new music:

Lana Del Rey, The Neighbourhood, Troye Sivan and Halsey are just some of them

Gave me opportunity to enjoy in many beautiful things, and to learn something new:

I found out about many new books, learned new hairstyles, was able to see what clothes other people prefer, and because of that I built my own, unique style

After a long time, I actually felt like I am a part of something bigger than me, or some other person itself. This was one of the rare places where I felt that I belong somewhere, that I matter, that I am not alone:

I learned a lot about life, people, love, happiness

I found people who have same interests as me, and they showed me that life is not as black as I thought it is. Of course, I still struggle from time to time, but it is okay, because that is how it is, we all have highs and lows
We Heart it gave me courage to be who I am, and this kind people believed in me when no one else didn't. I am grateful that I am a part of this community, and I am sure that this is only a start of this journey.
Happy 10th birthday We Heart It!
