Something I wrote for those in need
We all know we get sad sometimes.
Well, I saw my friends were getting pretty low in the dumps, so I wrote this-
"I think this would be the appropriate place to post this, as this is life advice for others.
Before I say anything- Yes, I know I am young. But I have experienced things people should not. I have been through hell and back many times, and have the burns to prove it. So the words I am about to say come from experience.
Let's get right down to it. Life sucks. That is the bottom line. We as humans are destined for pain and problems. It isn't far, but that is how it works. But here is where we can draw the line.
No matter how bad things get, no matter how horrible things appear, they always get better. No matter what, problems always get solved. Name any problem, they are able to be solved. Disease, death in the family, anxiety, you name it. They can trouble you at some point, but they will always be resolved. But it is how you handle these problems that show the kind of person you are.
You can handle these problems in many different fashions. I will focus on two.
You can do what many do- Give up. But this way is beyond horrible. When you believe nothing will get better, that will just happen. Things will stay exactly the same. When you have a problem, you need to solve it. You cannot sit still and expect everything to get better. You need to stay strong. I say this from the bottom of my heart- I know true pain. I know how much it means to hurt, how much it means to just give up. But you can never give up. You need the courage to stay strong. Life is pain, but there is also happiness. Which brings me to my next way-
You can handle your problems by being strong. You can believe everything will be ok. You can be positive. You can be happy. This may feel like you are fooling yourself, but you're not. When you have the hope to live, the hope to survive, you will naturally be able to solve problems either. Keeping a level head and a smile on your face will help you live. No matter your problem, being strong is the answer. I know it seems like you need to give up. But you can never do this. There is always a reason to live.
There is always a reason to live. Be it a hobby, job, or love, there is always a reason. There is absolutely no reason to die. Life is meant to be lived, not stopped short by your own hand. Taking your own life is a horrible way to leave the ones you love behind. You cannot be selfish. Before you have feelings of suicide, think of how you would affect others. Even if you feel no one loves you, it is farther from the truth. You, the person reading this, I love you. I probably don't even know you, but I love you. I know your pain, I know your hardships. You have someone who understands. Your parents love you. They gave birth to you. They are always here to help. Even if they are abusive like my parents, they still love you. That is why they keep you in their home. If you ever need help or advice, ask any of us for help. We are all here for you.
Now, I know I am a believer of my own words. I have lost count of my suicide attempts. But I am always stopped by the ones I love. I am stupid, I know. I get these feelings because I feel alone, like no one loves me. But I know people do. People at the forums do. My family does. My friends do. My girlfriend does. And people love you.
I have been through hell. Some of you know my past. But I am able to look past what has happened to me. Life is meant to be lived in happiness, not misery. Life is a bitch. You need to backhand the bitch and say "It's my damn life. Let me live it how I want". Because it is your life. You need to listen to your own needs. It doesn't matter what others want of you, what others think of you. You need to think of yourself. You may have self anxeity problems, you may be shy. But you need to realize it is what you think that matters. You will always have friends that help you. And if you don't have any real life friends- it is because you keep to yourself. Join clubs in your school, join a library. Find people to help you survive in this harsh life. Friends will keep you alive. Friends may not be forever, but they will be in your heart. But you will always have a friend in me, reader.
I know this was a large ranting session, but I need to get this out. I have been in depression so many times, I want to help others get out of theirs. Because depression sucks. I love all of you. We shall be happy together.
I will never forget any of you that have affected my life. All of you have, even if you don't know me. You have affected my life. And I love you.
I hope this somewhat helps any of you."
