my name is Dylan Boerboom, i was 16 years old, and this is why im no longer living.
Up until recently, ive never really told anyone about my severe depression.
Well, everyone knows now, huh?
It started when i was young, 11 or 12 years old. I was an overweight diabetic kid, with a messy hair cut and zero sense of style. I knew all this because i had it pointed out to me constantly. I know kids in my school are going to defend themselves when i say that, but in their hearts they know its true. The bullying was horrible. I never got recognition from anyone, and when i did, it was to call me a name, or hit me.
But none of that matters now. This next part is meant to be read by whoever’s name is before it. Make sure you are all in the same room.
Mom: This isnt your fault. You raised me right. The problem was that i refused to be myself, and that got the best of me.
Dad: This isnt your fault either. Youre a fantastic father, the best i couldve asked for. Please let my friends drive my truck, its the only way theyll stay with me.
Jared Schmidt: Im sorry. Youre the best friend i couldve asked for, even if i dont agree with some of your choices. Please be strong, remember all the advice ive given you, and dont ever let anything get you down. Ever.
Brody Iverson: Dont ever stop being you. Because no matter how hard people try to tell you that youre not a good person, you will never, ever believe them because you are the most genuine person i know.
Justin Paradis (Dirt): Leave a cigarette, and 20 chicken nuggets on my grave. Those are what i associate you with the most. You really are a fantastic friend, and dont ever change who you are.
Alex Madden: You will get the spare key for my truck. I was with you when you lost your truck, and i feel its only fitting that you can drive mine when you all lose me.Stay golden.
Justin Stattelman: You are the sweetest, most kind person i know. Dont ever change, buddy.
Jannelle Rodriguez: Please keep my sweatshirts. Whenever you eat marshmallows or hold a cat, i hope you think of me. Dont cry, please. Big girls dont cry, and i cant stand the thought of it. So dont you dare cry.
Hannah Mikel: Im gunna miss you, alot. Dont feel bad, im happy where i am now.
Nick Kesteloot: I cant begin to think what its like not being able to hang out with you during the summer, doing all those things we used to do. Im gunna miss you dude, stay strong.
I need all of you to know, that there is no end to the love i feel for you all. I hope you know, that even from six feet under, i cant begin to describe how warm it is.
None of you should feel bad, or like you didnt try hard enough. I was the problem, not you. But none of that matters now, because im not a problem any of you have to deal with anymore. This is my final goodbye.
Whenever you hear Adam’s Song, dont let more than one tear go.
Im not worth more than one.
