I don’t know where this has come from but I’m gonna post it because I speak my mind and don’t really know when to shut up, so here goes…
Don’t you ever dare give up… any of you. I know that life can get tough, believe me, I’ve been through it all myself and I’m only just coming back from it. I know that you get urges where you think that if you cut yourself, you might feel alive because of the pain or if you punch a wall and shatter your fist that you might get some contact with people and some attention, but it’s just not worth it.
You might think that there’s no point in living on anymore because life is just so shitty but that’s just cowardice and you’re giving up on something before you’ve tried EVERY SINGLE opportunity! Try everything you possibly can, go to counselling sessions, see a therapist, try talking things out with your parents, maybe talk with your closest friends about it… for me, I love to go lie on a field and think everything through; what’s happening, what has happened and what could possibly happen if I did things in different ways.
"Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.", remember this? Most of you probably will. Life is a mysterious thing, and I know there’s people out there that say "life is short, so live it." but they should just shut up. Life is extremely long and it will try to kick you down at any chance it gets, but every time it does that, just stand back up because what most of you don’t know is; you’re actually very strong, we all are, but we pity ourselves and think so lowly of ourselves that we can never quite manage to muster up the courage to face life without someone giving us a long lecture about it.
So here’s your lecture: Get out there and start living. No one is ever alone, we humans just aren’t built that way, we like being in groups of people and we like communicating with each other… you want proof? Well here’s one; tumblr! There are a lot of social networking websites which are mainly used for people to communicate with each other! In any case, if any of you ever feel alone, my ask box is always open to anybody, the anonymous box will always be available in case you don’t want me to know who you really are and I’d gladly talk things out with people if they prefer a more personal way of chatting.
Again, I do apologise for the long winded speech but these things just brew inside of me and I end up exploding with essays.
Hope you all have a great day and an amazing life ahead.
