What do I tell people who want to give up?
I can’t tell you I understand, because I don’t know what you feel. I know what pain is, I know what cutting yourself is, I know watching your blood run and wishing it was your life running out of you.
I know what sadness is.
I know what the darkness is, inescapable. You feel trapped.
But one day, something will come along that will save you.
And maybe this post is or isn’t.
Someone on this planet loves you, someone on this planet would break if you left.
And if you don’t do it for someone, do it for yourself.
Do it for the children you’ll have, the marriage in years to come and that future that is still being built.
You don’t know what’s round the corner and it is too early to give up.
You are too young to feel this pain, darling.
You are loved, and this sure will pass.
It will pass one day.
