Hello to whoever is seeing this,
I would just like to say that your loved no matter what. People when they’re mean are just upset that you can show that much sunshine even when you’re going through a dark time. You actually might be someone’s ray of sunshine. You could be the only person that someone ever sees her talks to. To take these into consideration you are wanted, you are loved, and you are beautiful!

all right, so, i’m gonna say it upfront: i’ve never been great with words or expressing how i feel. i’m sorry if this comes off the wrong way to anyone; i promise that wasn’t my intention. also a warning: i’m also gonna discuss (the topic of) su1cide pretty heavily in this. not anything graphic, mostly just in terms of the emotions attached to it, i think

(i do mention a few people towards the end, but this letter is meant for everyone)

i know that by the time that you get to the point of active su1cidal ideation, the standard positive phrases just don’t seem to work anymore, because you genuinely don’t believe them. it’s cold, lonely, and it really does feel like death is the only way out.

but, as many times as you’ve probably heard this already, i can promise you that’s not the case. it may seem like a hell of a narrow path, but there is always another way out.

and here’s where i start to ramble. hopefully this will kind of make sense:

about three years ago, back in the sixth grade, i had to write (some of) a novel for english. in my shitty divergent knock-off, i tried to explore the idea of existence in general; would things be any different if some people had never existed? would the world be exactly the same? who really mattered, in the grand scheme of things?

(…this is also about the time that my mental health began to decline pretty rapidly, which probably tied into the themes. covid-19 was rough)

anyways, it was hard to write. the more i wrote, the more contradictory it got. in trying to prove that my characters didn’t matter, i did the exact opposite: they mattered to each other, and to the world as a whole. their existence was what was keeping the entire “operation” afloat to begin with. if they had never existed, the story wouldn’t have happened, and the future would’ve played out differently. it was a flawed concept.

that being said, i’ve come to the conclusion that everyone has absolutely influenced other people. online, in person, wherever. there’s something about the collective as a concept. everyone has a presence of some kind; at school, for example, even if you don’t fit into a specific “role,” you still have a place. the students whose desks surround yours, those you pass in the halls every day, and those who share the lockers around yours, all know your presence. so much so that, if you were to vanish, they’d notice. i can assure you that at least some of them would.

you are so, so much more than just your physical person. you’re the things you enjoy, the things you’ve made, your ideas, and everything else. and, the thing is, you can shape who you want to be. so long as you can still watch the sun rise, you can still see change in your life. as long as you’re surviving, you still have a chance.

please stay alive. keep living, even if that just means surviving. even if you’re just scraping by, day-to-day. death is a scarily permanent “solution” — and in the end, it only passes the pain on to someone else. you are not selfish for wanting to live or die. please just stay alive.

star, vees/slug, n, and h (though you aren’t on here): i’m thinking about you. i’ll keep thinking about you. i hope that you can find the help that you need; we’re rooting for you

(okay, it’s pretty late and i’ve got stuff to do tmrw, so i think it’s about time i go to sleep… sorry about the long-winded 12am post. hopefully it makes some sort of sense lol)

Thank you for bringing up this important topic, difficult to discuss but of critical importance

Many years ago I called 911 on myself because a guy I was dating turned out to be married. He had opted not to tell me; he got angry with the person who opted to tell me, like me, she may have found out the hard way that some people are sleezeballs and there is nothing you can do about that

It resulted in a long painful journey to dig myself out of that deep hole of depression. I eventually found my way out. My solution was to get job training and find gainful employment and becoming a contributing member of society. That lifted me up more than anything. The medication didn’t really work for me. Counseling helped as well.

Hello ribblr ppl,
These are quotes that always touch my heart :heart:
Credits at the bottom ) some by me )

It’s ok to cry when there’s to much on your mind -
The clouds rain too when things get heavy.

It’s hard to turn the page when you know someone won’t be in the next chapter,
But the story must go on.

She’s gonna forever say “I got this” even with tears in her eyes. Be happy, cry, move on and smile, life won’t last forever. Enjoy what you got :heart:

Dear whoever you are,
You are amazing, talented, strong, kind, and you matter! “Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, ‘I’m possible!’ “ -Audrey Hepburn
Do what makes you happy. Don’t let what others think of you get in the way, and as one of my teachers says, “Don’t yuck their yum!” Some people call me weird, and my honest reaction is, “Thank you : )” Take weird as a compliment, and don’t let others get the best of you. It’s ok to be weird. It just means you’re unique, funny, and a special person. Also, it’s ok to cry. I cry when I’m sad, hurt, frustrated, stressed, confused, (or as I like to say, cornfuzzled) tired, and even just for no reason. “Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has been a sign that you are alive.” -Charlotte Brontë. Think of tears as something that waters you to help you grow. It’s ok to be upset, and sometimes you just have to get it all out before calming down, but staying upset won’t change or help anything, so move on, even if it’s hard. Everyone goes through hard times, some big, and some small, but in the end, you’re not the only one so don’t be afraid to talk to others. Whoever you are, you’re doing great : )
I know I’m just a random person on a random app saying random things about life, but I hope this brightens your day, encourages you, or makes you feel a little bit better. YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
