It Gets Better
I usually don’t write these kinds of things, but tonight I felt the need to. Earlier this evening, a friend of mine from back home called me crying saying that her dad committed suicide. I’ve always been the type of person who has something to say when someone comes to me, however tonight was different. I was at a lost for words for two reasons. One, I’ve never thought of what I would say (other than I’m sorry to hear that) if someone ever told me something like that. And two, because it reminded me of a time several years ago where I just wanted to give up. I felt like I had no one besides my family because of the constant bullying that I put up with for many years. I attempted twice to end it all. I wouldn’t be here if I wouldn’t have reached out. And if you have thoughts of ending it all, I strongly encourage you to reach out as well. There are plenty of people out there who care about you and are willing to just listen. You have a purpose. And things won’t get better immediately, but I promise you things will start looking up for you if you just reach out and talk to someone.
Can’t stop listening to this song.
