My Roller Coaster Life: Just a few timeless life lessons....
· Beauty comes from within. – You will never be beautiful like me. You can only be beautiful like you. One does not become beautiful by trying to be beautiful. One becomes beautiful by finding beauty in what’s already within.
· Pain has a purpose. – Pain doesn’t just show up in your…
"Always be thankful for the gifts God gives you everyday, because any given moment they can be taken from you."
I’m writing this because recently my surrounding communities have lost so many young lives ranging from car accidents, house fires, suicide or just the mysterious unknown. It breaks my heart. Suicide is the one that eats away at me everyday…. Growing up I lost a really good friend to suicide. He seemed like the most happy-go-lucky guy in the world. No one would ever guess that deep down he (hated) himself. Going to school with him and being around him what seemed like everyday it never once crossed my mind that he was hiding something that BIG. He started growing more distant, started missing school and running away from home. This occurred for quite sometime. His parents were wealthy and could afford to meet his “wanting needs” he was their pride and joy so that wasn’t a problem for them. Finally, one night when his parents were out of town he hung himself in the garage. I remember walking home from a friends and seeing 3-4 cop cars in front of his house. Years have went by and it still seems as though it was yesterday that, that all took place. May he REST IN PEACE.
We’re all worth something.
There are days that we feel hopeless, sad, mad, ect. like those emotions will never subside (& sometimes they never do). When that happens a lot of us tend to stray away from people that really care. We feel better alone, like we’re the only ones that truly know what’s going on. Building up those emotions is NOT healthy. Just talking about your emotions/problems/situations can help remove a lot of those bricks on your chest. How do I know this?! Because I’ve went through it… It took me a long time to realize I had so much to live for. One day I decided to wake up and count my blessings, not my problems. I realized that I had family, friends and strangers here for me. You’re probably thinking strangers? yes strangers. There are so many online suicide prevention helplines and blogs that reassure you that you’re NOT alone. They allow people to tell their stories, and also share their success stories of overcoming their tough obstacles. I ENCOURAGE people to share their voice with the world, let it be heard. I don’t want anyone to ever say “I’m alone, no one’s here for me, I have no one to talk to” want to know why? I’M HERE FOR YOU. I’m just a message away. I’m serious. You were blessed with a life, meaning you have a purpose here. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be here. Life’s hard that’s a fact, taking the easy way out isn’t always the smartest thing to do. Although most times it seems like it, we shouldn’t let our emotions get the best of us. I love you all. If you ever need words of encouragement don’t hesitate to talk to someone… Like I said I’m here.
