Broken kids everywhere are writing their life story in cuts on their wrists right now. If you are one of them, I can say I understand, but it doesn’t heal the scars, I know. A Band-Aid doesn’t fix anything. It just covers up the real problem. People are so oblivious to other people’s pain. People say that the world is changing, but I won’t believe it till kids aren’t killing themselves, or wanting too. After all, we are all just humans made of the same star dust, and the same blueprints in our bones. Do not belittle someone just because they don’t have the same way of living as you, don’t judge what you can’t understand. We are all just trying to live, and I think it’s sickening that someone would want to make living harder for another person, as if it isn’t already hard enough. I have been a very strong person this past year, I have had countless people tell me I’m ugly, nothing, and tell me I’m awful at the only thing I’m good at. I’ve had people tell me to stop eating, and to cut myself because ‘no one cares’. I’ve had people tell me to kill myself, and I’m telling you, I’ve tried. I might not be able to go to bed without worrying about what I ate that day, or look at myself without feeling worthless, and I might always think of the past and the silly thing I did like try to end my beautiful life, but I made it. I am living proof that the world can be awful to a person, but I am also living proof that it gets better. The world will make you feel small, and it hurts, trust me, I’ve spent plenty of nights crying in the shower, but you are made of the same stuff as anyone else, and just because they think different thoughts than you, doesn’t mean your weird or no one loves you. It means you are lucky enough to see the world as it really is. I am telling everyone that’s hurting right now, that you matter. You are a beautiful soul, and it makes my heart ache that I can’t be there for each and every one of you. I want you to exist. I can tell you that I have more hospital bracelets than I do friends, and I’m still trying to deal with that, but I am so proud of myself for staying, and I am so proud of you for making it this far, I’m proud of you for waking up, and getting out of bed, and if you’re looking for a sign not to kill yourself tonight, and every night, this is it.
