Hello everyone!
I have already presented here recently but I did not say something fundamental about me that, now that I've "known" better there, I want to tell you why Mika, when I was little, has literally saved my life.

I, like Mika, am dyslexic. Until some time ago I could not tell so many people in fact knew this thing just my family and my best friend.

 

In late 2006 I discovered to be dyslexic; beginning has not changed my life this news but then I began to cause problems.
In 2007, my "friends" began to make fun of me for my "problem" and more time passed and the injuries became heavy. At one point I was so bad he was going through in my head the decision to kill me but of course I did not tell anyone.

 

During the first months of 2008, my speech therapist realized that I was mentally hurt and told me that, in the world, there are many famous people who are dyslexic. He gave some examples and then I pronounced the name of a Lebanese singer dyslexic known around the world: MIKA.
I come home and I began to hear the songs of this singer and was able to make me feel better day after day, month after month and year after year.
Also reading his past and seeing the artist who was, I said to myself: if he is dyslexic, managed to tackle head-on all obstacles on its way and is now one of the most famous pop stars in the world, even I can follow my dreams caring about the opinions of others.

He gave me the strength to get up and chase my dreams.

 

AND I AM HERE TODAY TO WRITE THIS POST ON THE FAN CLUB OF MY IDOL TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING AND THAT YOU DO NOT would enable NEVER DO THAT 'HAVE PEOPLE IN MY PAST.

 

This is my story "with Mika".

 

P.S.: Sorry for my english but, when I have to write long things, I may have made some mistakes.

I have a dream that has not yet realized (since I have not had the pleasure of meeting Mika face to face): I would like to get a tattoo on the skin the phrase "believe in yourself", however, with his handwriting.
As soon as I will get to write this sentence from him I will do it!

Thanks for your story.

You gave me courage to share mine.

 

I also had a "problem" in my infancy and adolescence: bullying.

My "friends" bullied me because of various reasons: because I was overweight, because I was the good girl, and probably there are other reasons I don't even know.

 

In the darkest time, like you, I thought about suicide but I didn't kill myself because, even if I was  depressed, I thought I would have hurt my family. In fact, in contrast to what you say, I never shared anything about those moment I was bullied.

As I said in my introduction post I am a bit shy, and I became even more after what happened in my past. in fact I have no real friend because I don't trust anybody, not because I don't want but because I'm not able to trust anyone new in my life. 

I've always loved Mika's music but I now love it even more because of the song "Hurts", because he says a major truth about life "nothing's only words, that's how hearts get hurt". 

His music gave me strength because I understood that I'm not the only one that suffered and also that it's time to move on, I can't stay stuck in my old life and think about the past.

I decided to move on, trying to be more friendly with people, be more social, that's also  why I joined the MFC.

 

We should remember that we can be what we want, no matter what people think about us.

"During the years"  so true, it's not something you learn overnight, it takes time but when you understand, then you are free.

Thank you love for sharing, it is really lovely how Mika can save us through his music, and above all, the essence of his very beautiful being :wub:

 

He saved me on the exact day I needed it and reading your story made me cry because it reminded me of how he saved me that time, and how he continues to keep our spirits up  :hug:

 

You are an AMAZING person and I am so happy Mika saved you  :hug:  :wub:

 

Lots of love
