Mental Illness: it's okay to talk about. Fuck the stigmas.
Just wanted you to know that even though you are so far away, that I may never see you again and that’s alright. You were the first person to really know me, to really accept me, and to really be in love with me. I never said it back because I was scared/am scared of love. I let you go, or so I thought, by not talking to you, and I regret that. I don’t regret much, but I regret losing you and treating you poorly when you cared for me so much. It’s funny when you realize things to late, but it’s a lesson learned, not so much a failure, even though it feels that way. I don’t think I said I love you to your face and I’m sorry. I miss you, and I’d wait forever, maybe not for you, but to be understood, to be accepted, to be loved the way you did me. You showed me I’m lovable without having to prove anything, which is something I never thought was possible…. I read what you wrote me, and when I am down it always helps when I am at my worst. I carry a note from you in my wallet that I glance at when I need something to give me just an ounce of strength.
"Two blackbirds on a highway sign
Are laughing at me at 4 in the morning…”
They can keep laughing at me, but I’ll keep going on this road of recovery thanks to the strength you helped me find.
Hi :) I’m making a video for self harm awareness day . I would like to make it inclusive, and want videos of people sharing their thoughts, words, advice for someone struggling with self harm, suicidal thoughts, depression etc. I was wondering if you would like to send me a video, or maybe get the world out by sharing this. If you, or anyone could send me their videos to firstname.lastname@example.org, that would be amazing. Thank you :)
