IF YOU NEED A SIGN TO STAY ALIVE, HERE IT IS.
THIS IS YOUR SIGN. THIS IS A CHANCE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.
This is me personally saying, from the bottom of my heart, “It’s okay. You will be okay one day.”
You are unique.
You are valid.
You are loved.
You are enough.
You have always been enough. You will always be enough—and more, more than you may ever realize.
I don’t care if it feels like you don’t matter. You matter to somebody on this planet, even if you don’t think you do. Somebody out there needs you. Someone would be sad if you vanished.
Take a deep breath and kick depression (or whatever else is holding you back or frightening you) in its sorry butt. (Kick executive dysfunction in the butt while you’re at it.)
You matter. You have always mattered. You will always matter. Full stop. End of subject.
I have collected a great number of depression/anxiety/suicide resources over the years. I’m creating a more comprehensive way of containing them and making them more accessible to people who need them. See the updated lists below!
(I am well aware that some things might be on here more than once. Please don’t message me regarding that. I’ve trimmed some of the duplicates out, as well as some links that are now defunct.)
It gets better!
I love each and every one of you. ❤ Please don’t be mad that I haven’t replied to you yet—I promise I’ll get to it when I’m healthier. I can do one or two every so often like I have been, but I’ve been pretty neglectful, and I’m truly, deeply sorry about that.
And remember: no matter how much things suck, it gets better.
Stand up every time you are knocked down.
It is okay to cry. And it is also okay to be afraid of getting back up.
But when it comes down to it, you need to do what is best for you, whether that’s ending a toxic friendship or learning how to manage your time better.
Everyone needs different things, and that doesn’t make you better or worse than anyone else.
You are loved. You are wanted. You are important.
Embody love to the best of your ability, and you will go far.
Take one step and then another step. Your journey will be long and hard. But you can do it.
PLEASE STAY HERE WITH US.

Below, there is a table of contents. Underneath that is a list of keywords and topics that are mentioned throughout the many resources and words of positivity.
Please don’t let the “keep reading” line deter you from actually opening the post all the way. I’ve spent many, many hours putting this together, and I want to keep it handy and useful. But it’s just massive now.
So please use the table of contents and keywords to find what you’re struggling with or what you need to see.
The table of contents is organized by the headings used in the various sections.
