Read this first

If you’re thinking about suicide, read this first.

I’m glad you’re here. I’m not going to try to convince you of anything; I would just hate if anything went left unsaid.

Life is a bitch. It can really hurt. It’s often the people and things we love most that cause us the most pain.

The first and only time I considered suicide, I was in high school. I felt like the people I loved most didn’t want me at all.

In the 11 years since that moment, a handful of people have loved me more than I thought I would ever be loved, and I have loved them. I didn’t know probably half of them before I thought of taking my own life.

I’m not trying to convince you to change your mind. I can’t promise you that it will get better. But I don’t want anything left unsaid.

I love you. I may not know you, but those are not empty words. I truly appreciate you and the things you do.

Life’s a bitch, and that can make people do stupid things. But the stupid things that you have done don’t negate the good. Good and bad, I love you.

If you want me to convince you, DM me.

Before you go, I only have one suggestion–and that’s all it is.

Don’t leave anything unsaid.

Call the person or people you care most about. Let them know that you care about them. Thank them for everything they’ve done and tell them you appreciate them.

Do the same for the people who care most about you. Be honest with yourself: don’t leave anyone out. Let them tell you that they care about you and thank you for everything you’ve done.

In the end, the choice is yours to make; I would just hate if anything went left unsaid.
