The other day I was in the city with my partner & friends. We were waiting at the entrance of a shopping centre & out the corner of my eye, I saw this boy. He didn’t look too much younger than myself. Maybe 17 or 18. His hair was dark brown & matched his eyes. He was thin & average height for someone that age.
He caught my eye because he was covered in cuts & scars from the neck down. He had no scar free spaces on his arms or legs. His face was full of happiness as he delighted in the company of what I could only assume as friends & family. He was wearing shorts & a short sleeve top, making no attempt to cover his past or hide his pain. He showed no shame or regret in what his body had become.
This boy has been a massive inspiration for me. I thought I had accepted my body for what it is today; scars & all. This boy was really confronting for me because he made me realize that I have been covering myself up & hiding the things that have made me who I am today. Why should I be ashamed of the very things that made me fight to be alive? To be stronger? To be happier? To make something of myself & my life? They should be marks of strength not weakness. They remind me of everything I have overcome & although they were done in moments of weakness, I came out stronger than before.
Words can’t describe how much this one boy has affected my entire being.
I posted this three times tonight and had three people tell me that I helped save their life. Thank you to those people who have decided to struggle through to let us enjoy the gift of one more day of their prescence gracing us all. I hope that you all reblog this, to save another few. Because we all dserve another chance and hope in life. I went to the hospital 6 times before I decided to keep my life but I hope none of you suffer that much. And I hope you all can make that scary, seemingly painful, blind, hoping, wonderful step to live.
I want to help you in any way I can. ANYTHING. I mean it. If I had had someone stay with me and text me or talk to me all night, just one time, it would have changed my life. I know how hard those nights can be.
^I love this girl more than words can express.
foundmywaywheniwaslost: I am always here if anyone ever needs to talk/vent. You have a purpose, Please Stay Alive. <3
Not just for tonight but for the rest of your life. You have so much to look forward to in the future that if you choose to kill yourself, it will be the biggest mistake of your life. You’re going to miss out on people you’ll never be able to meet, kids you’ll never have, a partner to love or partys to go to. There’s just too much that you’ll miss out on. You deserve and have the right to be here as much as the person next to you does. You’re just a drop in the ocean. You were meant to be here and you have a purpose. Don’t ever forget that. And if you feel like you don’t, just believe in yourself because you do. If you ever feel worthless or like shit, know that I love you and those dicks that tell you shit are jealous that you’re who you are because there’s something about you that they wish they could have. Please stay strong and never give up because things DO GET BETTER.
