After reading comments on Mighty Minute, I just wanted to post a thought.
This is a sign for you to stay here. Please. Stay. I want you here. Other individuals on The Mighty care about you and want you here.
Things can feel hopeless and it may seem like things will never get better. Your world might be hell right now and you may be experiencing pain that I cannot even imagine. And my heart goes out to those of you enduring that pain. You are an incredible fighter and warrior. I believe that you have and can continue to persevere through these dark and challenging times.
For those of you thinking the world would be better without you, you are wrong. Your mind is lying to you. Your mind can come up with intrusive and overwhelming thoughts that are false. It is hard to not buy in and believe the negative and hurtful things your mind is telling you. But I'm telling you that you are bigger than that voice in your head that is putting you down.
You have overcome so much. You don't even realize how far you have come on your journey. You are loved, wanted, and cared for. You are not alone. It can really feel isolating, lonely and scary. Reach out if you need to. We are never meant to face these things alone.
