Just want you to know that you are capable of anything and can achieve the things you want in life if you put your mind to it. I know it’s hard to get motivated but if you force yourself to get outside and do things, you will find that little bit of inspiration you need. Today I found some duckies and fed them and it was gr8 and now I want to become a better person in general and idk
there’s no such thing as a stupid reason not to kill yourself.
your school sells cookies on thursdays? your favorite band is coming out with a new album? you’re still saving up for that tattoo? there’s still five sodas in your fridge and it’d be a shame to let them go to waste? you want to see the season finale of that show you love? keep living.
your reasons don’t have to be big, if they mean anything to you then they’re good reasons.
One of the closest times I came to committing suicide was when I was home alone for the weekend a few years ago. The reason I didn’t?
No one else was there to feed the cat until Monday.
That’s it. That’s all that saved me.
See, this is such good advice, because it can put you in the frame of mind that you need to be in to combat depression. Even things that seem little, like, “My plant will die if I don’t water it,” or “I’m the only one that takes out the trash, anyways” are examples of how you’re needed and valuable, even appreciated.
There are people out there that need you and love you. Stay alive friend, because it is so worth it.
So vitally important! Literally the day after I gave birth to my youngest child my mum passed away, it was a truly awful time and I really wasn’t coping. I didn’t want to hurt myself, I just wanted to RUN. I wanted to run away from everything, my kids, my partner, my life… I was convinced everyone would be better if I just left. There was always something stopping me, a social event, lack of money, appointments… Anything! That’s when I realised I needed help, I didn’t want to leave, I just needed someone to know I wasn’t okay. That’s also when i realised that its okay not to be okay! Please please reach out, there’s no shame in asking for help! ❤❤❤
This stuff is so, so important to me. I advocate as strongly as I can for taking care of yourself and staying alive. I have a lot more resources, but I don’t want to bog this down too much with stuff.
Just know that I believe in you and that it gets better. Just taking tiny steps can make such a big difference.
