I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in a Christian home but that doesn’t stop the fact that I sometimes feel ignored by everyone I love. For years, I’ve dealt with depression, social anxiety problems and trust issues and I’ve never been able to shake the feeling that no one really hears when I cry out for help. I’m ashamed to admit that I even took to harming myself and that one day I was going to go even farther and commit suicide. I really believed that no one cared.
My radio was playing at the time and the song that I heard saved my life.
The song, Hold Me by Jamie Grace (feat TobyMac), reminded me that even when I felt most ignored in this life, the most important person in my life was still holding my hand beside me. Maybe this doesn’t qualify me as a fighter but it feels like I’m fighting through each day so I feel comfortable saying this:
My name is Jessica and I am a fighter.
