Hey yall!! I was actually looking forward to blogging this week! So yay! I actually did a little research on blogs, and found out I was doing absolutely everything wrong. haha.
So I changed things up a little and decided I would put a more positive reinforcement on "How to" treat yourself.
One of my best friends and I got into a deep conversation over drinks a week ago. In fact, we found out that we were both in a very low and dark spot in our lives and we didn't even notice it in one another until we said something. Now, of course we are over that low self esteem and hump for now, but the scary thing is, is we are great friends and didn't even have the nerve to tell each other.
We see all the suicidal awareness pages, and feel sad when we see that someone has taken there life, but that is it. We get sad, maybe shed a tear, turn away from our devices and never remember it, until it happens to you personally.
So I'm just writing these things to anyone feeling down. Of course these 3 things were the things I kept telling myself and it may not apply to your situation, but just remember that if you are depressed, or just feel like you can't bear anything else on your shoulders, that you are not alone.
1. (They won't care) This was probably the number one thing that repeatedly can run through someones head. Even when you weren't thinking about hurting yourself. It can be a constant reminder of, "Oh, I can literally run away and no one will care" that is far from true. The fact you have to keep reassuring and repeating that very point is what makes that whole statement a lie! People do care. Your friends who you think wouldn't, would. Even though you argue with your parents or grandparents, I am here to tell you they do care. They will miss you with every part of themselves, and not only will they miss you they will feel guilty about not being able to help you.
