my aunt’s boyfriend was found dead outside his house today. life is unfair. please just take care of the people you love guys. you never know what’s going to happen.
i need to finish my term paper in culture and communication today, and i literally am freaking out. i don’t know how to write this fucking thing, and i’m really mad at myself for starting to write a 10 pages long paper less than a week before it’s due. i’m just so stressed out and all i want to do is lie down and cry.
Tomorrow, September 10th, marks World Suicide Prevention day, and I would just like to remind you all that you matter.
It’s been around a year and a half since I had convinced myself that I didn’t want to live anymore. But I’m still here, I’m still living my story and no one else can play my part. Sure, I still struggle. Sometimes it takes all I have to even get out of bed, but that doesn’t mean that it’s worth giving up. No one else can play my part, because I am the one who can get my friends to laugh of my stupid jokes, I am the one who makes my dog so happy she dances in circles when she sees me, and I am the only one who can make the most of the life I’ve been given. And even today - when everything seems a little dark, I still know deep down that this is not the end, and there’s still a light that is worth chasing.
You might be a lot like me - in need of a sign today that things are not going to be like this for the rest of your life. Or you might not be like me at all. Either way: I just hope you know that you matter, your story matter and no one else can play your part.
And let me just end with the words of Sophia Bush: “You matter because you exist.”
