This is the question you have been asking yourself for so long that you might not know when the first time was. I know the answer to this question though. The answer is “Yes I can”. How do I know this? It is because I have asked this question myself many times during the darkest parts of my life. I still have daily battles, just like you. Yet here I am to pick you up, empower you and share with you how I overcame it.
During my darkest parts in life, I wanted it all to come to an end. I felt that this was the only way that I was going to find any kind of peace or silence from the noises of chaos within my mind. There was only one really big problem. I had promised to myself that no matter how rough life got that suicide was never an option. I understand that everyone is different and my heart aches for you if you are going through a rough time but suicide should never be an option for you either.
That is not true. There is always someone that will miss you and wish everyday that you were still here. To be honest, I will miss you. Yes I don’t know who you are or what you are going through but every story that I read about someone committing suicide breaks my heart. I get very sad after reading about it and wish that I could have been there to help them change their mind.
Mental illness is a scary double edge sword. Either you talk about it and get criticized or you hide it and suffer alone feeling hopeless. The solution to this is to find someone you trust with your life and open up to them. Share your pain. Share your story. Share your fears. Share what a day inside your mind is like. It is important to educate them what it is like to deal with this daily. Does it help? Yes it does. I know this because it is exactly what I did.
That is not true. I know that you can. How do I know this? It is because you probably thought that same exact thought yesterday and also the day before that. You will also probably think it tomorrow too. I am here to tell you that you have immense power and strength within you. So much so that you could share that power and strength with others if you wanted to. You may not know this because it is found deep within in you. It is safely tucked away and only you have the key to unlock it.
Today is the day that you finally use that key to unleash your super powers. Set them powers free and take back your life. The life that you deserve and have wished for. You can do this. Set that fire within you a blazing and rid your life of that suffocating darkness. Watch the video below in case you need another reminder. I have overcame and you will too!
Until my next blog post… Share. Inspire. Conquer.
