You are important. You are loved. You are not alone.
Life’s not always fair, tragedies occur daily, and as human beings we have this awful tendency to question every part of ourselves. But at the end of the day, we are equipped with much more strength than we realize – not only can we save ourselves but we can save others as well. Sometimes, words simply aren’t enough but they’re something. Even though we strive to continuously spread positivity and love, we cannot deny the fact that we reside in a screwed up world. As much as we wish this were false, the truth is, not everyone is kind, but there’s not a single soul in the world without their own personal demons.
As similar as two beings can possibly be, there’s not another person in the world that isn’t inimitably created. We want to encourage you to celebrate yourselves day by day. Even in your darkest days, we want to let you know that you that ending your life isn’t the answer. You cannot be replaced and that by itself is an enormous tragedy in our world. We’d be losing a uniquely created, exquisite soul.
Over the last few years especially, with blogging becoming more and more popular by the second – along with the hateful anonymous messages, kind people exist, too. It’s easy to become discouraged, but we want to promise you that there’s at least one person if not more in the world who cares. As people who have the power to change things. Every single day of your life, go out of your way to help someone – a simple text message, tweet, Tumblr message, Facebook message, etc. that reads “hey, how are you” could let them know they aren’t alone. Although we all lead incredibly busy lives, it isn’t difficult to take a moment to compliment someone in line at Starbucks. It’s not difficult to smile at a stranger because that one smile has the ability to evoke something magical within them. We can change lives – let’s never give up trying.
Under the cut are numerous Suicide Prevention Hotlines all over the world. You truly are never alone.
If there’s any we may have accidentally missed, feel free to add them.
