Sean Connor, a teenage boy who wants nothing more than to be left alone, can’t seem to catch a break. Constantly bullied with nowhere to turn, Sean finds himself losing control. After twins, Jonathan and Jessica move in next door, things seem to be getting better, but good things don’t last forever, especially not for Sean.
Sean Connor is a boy who's dealing with a number of issues in his life. As a teen, I remember trying to fit in and knowing a lot of others who were also in the same predicament. There are so many teens who think taking their lives is a way to deal with the pain associated with being young. It's not the answer. Though Sean Connor is a fictional character, he exists in many of us. We've all gone through times when we didn't recognize ourselves, we've been depressed, or we didn't feel like there was anyone around to talk to. We are never truly alone even when we think we are. There's always someone like Courtney or Jessica around to help us out. There's always someone who will miss you dearly if you're gone. You can deny it all day long, but it is the complete and honest truth.
Many issues associated with homosexuality in youth are because of the lacked sense of belonging. You don't understand yourself, feel like an outsider, or just don't know what to do anymore. Remember, above all else, you are important. Everyone was put on this Earth for a reason and, though you might not find out why right away, eventually you will. People may bully you and things may seem like they'll never get better. Trust me, things will get better. How will you ever find out if you don't wait around long enough for it to happen?
You might feel like you need to run away, but you're only running away from yourself. Yourself is always going to be there no matter where you go. Find someone to talk to. Believe me when I tell you again, you are not the first person to go through what you're going through and you won't be the last. Don't keep these things inside because they only get easier when you're not alone in the dealing. Take care and love yourselves no matter what!
