To the person who’s feeling alone,
I promise that you aren’t.
I know how you might feel right now. Your head is spinning and you feel so defeated. All you want to do is to scream for help. But instead, you keep silent. Afraid to speak up. You want to be able to snap your fingers and have all your worries and thoughts go away. If only it would go away as easy as it came. You thought that you would be happier this way. But you’re not.
Your thoughts are your enemy, but also your best friend. You don’t remember life without it. It’s always by your side guiding you. You don’t know how to live without it, Telling you what to do, and what not to do. You don’t want to let go of your constant companion but at the same time, it’s what you yearn for the most. You want to be your own self but you’re terrified of letting go.
So what do you do? You go fight for your life. It’s a fight, unlike any others. You’re not fighting another being but instead yourself. You take back the life that you were born to live. Your life is something that belongs to you and no one else.
It may feel like you’ll never win. One day you’re okay, one day you’re not. But I promise you that it gets better. Take it one step at a time. No matter how cheesy it may sound, it is the honest truth. Every choice you make in your fight is a choice to win.
You are not alone in this. That is a promise that I can keep and one that you have to remember.
