Anonymous: i know i'm just a stranger on the internet but please don't do this to yourself, i know you're sick of hearing it but your life matters. it's true. if we lost you, our world will lose a little bit of color. i hope i'm not too late in telling you this, and i hope you reconsider and keep staying strong.
Thank you for your concern but I didn’t do anything drastic. I reassessed everything and realized I was being overly emotional. I honestly don’t want to die. In fact I want to be a pillar of strength for others that are also suffering with depression and other mental illnesses like myself. I don’t want to give up. I was just caught in a vulnerable moment that I fortunately pulled myself through.
My life as well as everyone else’s life is worth living and fighting for and I’m not going to succumb to my illness. I’m going to persevere as best I can.
I hope I didn’t trigger or scare anyone. I’m stronger than I think sometimes and by me responding to this message proves that. I’m alive, awake and thriving.
I’m still here.
Thank you again.
Hugs and Kisses!
Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.
It’s kinda sad isn’t it?
That someone could hurt you so much that you have to write about it.
We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there.
