You Are Not Alone.

She cries in the middle of the night.
Tears of hurt.
Tears of pain.
She wonders if there's something, anything, to bring even the slightest bit of joy into her darkened world.
She feels so alone.
Like the world in itself is against her.

Hey everyone! So today I thought I'd share a little bit about suicide. This is a really hard topic to talk about because it's so serious and often times touchy to people. But life is too short to not talk about your passions. And mine is suicidal people. It makes me so internally sad to know that people feel no self worth. It makes me sad that they think there is no one out there that love them for them. That people don't reach out and do something about it.

The rave today is about Anti-Bullying. And why it is a very good thing, it is brought up so much that other things like suicide are often times looked passed.

So, if you are one of the many who think that there is no hope. If you think that life would be better without you. Then listen to me here friend. Life is a gift from God. A gift. It is not a choice. It is not something that should be questioned. It is the greatest gift you will ever receive. I know sometimes life can get quite lonely. Sometimes we think that no one loves us. But let me tell you this. You ARE loved. You may not know or see it, but there is at least one person out there who enjoys being in your company. Explore your passions. Sometimes it's hard to find what you love to do. You feel like your good at nothing. But everyone is good at something. That's what makes us unique. That's what sets us apart from each other. Once you realize what that passion is, explore it. You can change the world. It's hard at times to think that we could could change anything at all. Me being a "Teenager" my world tells me that exactly. Your not old enough. Smart enough. Strong enough. They tell me that I need to grow up before I can do anything at all. Anyone can make a difference. A little child or an older man. A widow or someone who is homeless. And while maybe at times you feel like you can't do it, I know you can.

So when you feel like the world is against you. When you feel that life is more than you can handle, remember this. You are beautiful. You are unique.  You are worth it.

Here's a poem I created about someone very dear to my heart who killed himself because of being suicidal, if you would like to read it.

  2. Very nice! Remember one thing though. The reason that bullying is important is because it too often leads to suicide. The bully or bullies beat the victim down so much that they feel death is their only escape.

    1. Thanks beautiful! I definitely agree that bullying is often times a large contributor to suicide, but today I just really wanted to touch on the "Loving people is everything" & "Everyone is important" sort of deal, not the many things that lead to it, if that makes sense..Just more inspirational, or at least I tried. :)

  3. Thanks for bringing this important issue up Mak. Suicide has touched my life when I was a kid - it still stings. It is so often not talked about as it is very painful but it does exist in our society and touches many people. So thank you. :)

    1. Of course Alana, thanks so much for supporting me on it! I've dealt with people in my life that have gone through this, and it breaks my heart to know that people feel so horrible about themselves, when in reality, everyone is a beautiful person. Someone who is worth it.

  4. Oh, God, how to say this?
    When I was a teenager, I lived with suicidal thoughts every day. My stepfather made my every waking moment miserable, painful, dirty. When I was with other people, I felt ashamed, dirty, unworthy, I didn't want them to get too close to me in case they found out who I was, the life I lived, the way I felt, yet I yearned for just one person to know, to understand, to find me.. My life had no worth, no future, no hope in my eyes. You have to understand, when things are as horrendous as that, it is unimaginable that you could ever be free of the filth you feel clinging to your soul. There seems no hope. Even if circumstances change, your tormentor dies, the bully is removed, the damage is done. You feel you will never be clean.
    I thank God every day that I met the boy who is now my husband. Fifty years ago, he found me, cared enough to get to know me, to heal me and to help me. He was my 'someone who loves' me. Without him I would have taken my life. Now, I cherish the gift of life, but I still wrestle every day with feelings of unworthiness. I still scrub my hands and clean my teeth cruelly sometimes to try to be clean
    Your post is brave, Mak. I hope this comment helps to highlight how important it is to show depressed, desperate people of any age, that we care about them, that even a broken life can be lived in splints.

    1. My gosh Christine, this is so touching it made me cry. What a strong person you are. I can't even tell you what an inspiration you are, and to know that you went through all of those hardships and turned out okay, it must give others hope. This post is totally inspiring to me. Thank you Christine, for sharing your tragic & beautiful story. That must have taken a lot to do that. <3

    2. Thank you. Yes, it did, Mak. I had to dig deep. But isn't that what life's all about? Being willing to search inside ourselves and share our pain to heal another's. if my experience helps anybody at all, then it is vindicated.
      Usually I try to do it through my fiction writing. There is always a little of my pain in there! The novel I'm working on just now is based on the writing I did many, many years ago to try to exorcise the pain. It was too raw then to share, but I am rewriting it now and hoping it will help someone cope with theirs.

    3. That is SO awesome. Good for you! Even though I don't know you very well, I do know that you are and can be to others, an amazing role model. People will look at you and think "I can get through this." Because you will be their saving grace. Thank you for your comment! <3
