“You know, Kenneth Branagh is a big mentor of mine and he said something the other day, somebody asked him a question and – I think it’s a quote from Shakespeare – from A Midsummer’s Night Dream, which is four words: “take pains, be perfect”. And it’s, I think, his way of saying, you know – don’t be afraid of caring. I mean, when I started acting, I’ll never forget this – there was a guy above me at drama school, who used to say: when you have a big audition, for a part that you really want, you should go out and have a crazy night and then turn up to the audition hungover and you’ll always get the part. And, I tried that and it never worked at all. I’ll just be like “eugh, I just wanna go to bed, I’m sorry, I’m just really tired…” And then I kinda changed – basically I gave myself permission to care.” [x]
Please, if you are considering suicide, know someone cares. I know you have probably heard that so many times, but it’s true. I care a whole fucking lot! So please babe, don’t do it. Don’t cut, burn or hit yourself. Stop purging, start eating. Forget the drugs.
You are worth recovery and deserve all the love in the world. You are not a fuck up or a waste of a space.
I’d love to sit with you all night and hold your hand to show I care and that you are gonna be okay, but this will have to work. If you want to talk I’m always available. Just don’t give up yet! I understand it’s hard and sometimes you might not even want to recover but it’s worth it! You’re worth it! I love you!
“I think the funny thing about love is that it’s generally worth it in the end. Even though it hurts like hell and is probably worse than almost every other kind of pain when it does not last, eventually, the pain gets a bit better and the joy and bliss that you had for a while were better than never having had them at all. Despite the pain it’s still always been worth it.”
