I don’t know about you, but for me school holidays have just started. Taking a break away from an unfriendly environment and people, such as school and fellow students, it can really help you take the well needed break you deserve! Having this quality time to yourself can help you find what really makes you happy which can kickstart your journey onto a positive route. Getting away from all of that negative energy can instantly start making you feel better and more positive about yourself and your life. It is a tough battle and I can’t stress that enough! I understand that you may not see what I’m getting at, or it may seem way too hard to handle or that if you think I’m just another person saying that this is what you need to do as if it’s just that easy; I feel a fraction of your pain and suffering as I’ve been through similar things, I understand how difficult it is for you and I want you all to feel safe here.
PLEASE READ: even though you may not see it, the first step into getting better and becoming happier could be as simple as removing yourself from negative energy – yes it will be hard, just because it sounds simple doesn’t mean that it’s easy. Find something that has a positive influence you on and stick with it. It may seem extremely hard and don’t get me wrong, it will be hard, but not as hard as you think. It will be a struggle but does that mean it’s worth giving up everything? I sure as hell think it’s not and I hope that there’s still a fight left in you to think the same. You are beautiful. You are important. You are wanted. You deserve better. You deserve to be happy.
In the hopes of reaching out to people and sharing our stories to try and give you advice and/or guidance, we’re going to stat sharing more true, personal stories about personal adventures and struggles that people we know have been through. Each of these people are writing their own stories and are giving us permission to post them here – they understand what it’s like to struggle with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, family issues, suicide, etc. and just like me, they want to reach out and help anyone going through the same or similar ordeals. Tomorrow we are introducing K’s ongoing adventure through life. No matter how big or how small your struggles are, they tear you down and affect you and we want to stop that. You’re smart, beautiful people that deserve the best! You’re strong warriors and it’s time for your battle to end – it’s time to take baby steps and put down the razor. It’s time to rip that suicide letter up and burn it. It’s time to create your own happiness and live your life in complete happiness and peace because you deserve it.
Stay strong warriors!
The purpose of this blog is to share stories, find support, ask for advice. The reason why I started this blog is to share with everyone my story – my struggles with depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and eating disorders. I’ve been through a great ordeal and I’m still struggling, but I want to share with you my story and all my struggles and everything I’ve been through to show you that even though today may seem crappy, tomorrow will be a brighter day. By sharing my story, I hope to help you through your struggles and inspire you to make a change. The battles are tough, I know, but we’re all fighting the battle, just different devils. We’re all thinking the same things, just to different extents. We’re all feeling the same things, just different intensities. We’re all in this together, even though you may not see it. I want to provide support for anyone struggling through anything going on in their life at the moment. I am making a stand because depression, anxiety, suicide, self-harm, eating disorders and what not are serious issues that need to be faced head on right now, not after someone has taken their life because they feel it’s the only way. I understand how you’re feeling and what you’re thinking. Opening up to strangers can help, even listening to someone else’s battle story can help; so with that said, as I share my story with you through this blog, I hope to help you in one way or another. I am also here to listen to your stories too, to help you, give advice and support, help you through an ordeal because in the end, we’re in this battle together and you’re not alone. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life and you can win against your devil that you’re constantly fighting, I stand here as an example of that and I want to help you achieve the same thing.
