I [have suffered] from depression and being suicidal for 15 years. For all those who think that they cannot make it – you can. I was never accepted by my family. I was bullied by kids in school in grades below, above, and in. My school kicked me out because I kept complaining that nothing was being done to help stop it. I have done many things that I have regretted since I was like this. I joined a drug gang and they tried to kill me after I didn’t do what they wanted. I ran away from home for 6 moths.
I felt so alone and scared and [felt] that no one cared. I still sorta feel like that. I do not know what happiness is or what love is. Maybe someday I will. I still feel alone a lot though.
“People care. Learn to trust.”
But what keeps me going? Knowing that I am not alone. If any of you who are reading this feel like you are just know that you aren’t. For one…I am here for you along with many others. Reach out and people will help. People care. Learn to trust. I know it is hard and I myself am still learning but it is worth it. Be not afraid to reach out.
We will make it through this together.
Just remember: You are special, unique, and one of a kind.
