Not long ago, I wrote to my followers, expressing that I loved them. I stressed to them that it’s important to love yourself above all things; that to be mistreated and abused by someone isn’t something you deserve. I told them that they are needed by someone, somewhere. I asked them to not speak suddenly when angry, so that they may avoid regretting words spoken. I assured them that being different isn’t a crime, followed by my favorite line:
"How can the people who are meant to be a part of your life find you if you’re blending in with everyone else?"
I don’t think I’d be able to say any of this without experience. From having no money, to having no food… From sleeping without lights, to sleeping without a home of my own. I’m not talking one day; being without from weeks to months even…
From striving to be perfect, to feeling utterly worthless… Expectations, being bullied, etc… There have been so many days that I couldn’t see myself getting through; sometimes even now.
I’ve tried to take my own life a number of times I can count on one hand, luckily. Things get hard sometimes; really hard. Everyone doesn’t understand and there are some people who never will. They just seem to enjoy looking down on others or misunderstanding as if everything done is a cry for attention.
It is a cry for people to pay attention, yes. A cry for help. A cry to be saved. A cry to be wanted. A cry to be loved…and sometimes all it takes is ONE person to acknowledge that cry…
I get that sometimes it seems things won’t get better or better yet, they get better for a moment and then become worse than they originally were. I just want you to fight a little harder for the life that was given to you; fight for YOUR life.
So many of us have given up already; so many have cried and died alone… It doesn’t have to be that way…
It’s been repeated so many times, that maybe it won’t have any meaning, but I’ll take that small chance.
You aren’t alone. If I could, I’d send you all a personal smile and hug you.
I love you, because if you are reading this, it means you haven’t given up yet.
Take it one day at a time :)
