mmmmm ok not to be dramatic but i just wanna say that when i was 17 i hadn’t even applied to college because i didn’t see myself making it out of high school. i was on the tail end of a 9 year battle with depression, anxiety, self harm, eating disorders, and suicide attempts that i didn’t think i would survive. but i ended up at college somehow and realized what happiness felt like for the first time. in the next few years i was raped, sexually assaulted, stalked, chronically ill, and i watched my dad die in front of me. now im 20 and im okay. my scars are hidden under a tattoo. i am safe from the people who have hurt me. i have my mental illness under control. i know my dad loved me. and i just graduated magna cum laude with two bachelors degrees.
so i just wanted to post this in case it finds its way to anyone that thinks they won’t make it to the next phase of their life. growing up i thought things couldn’t possibly get worse and these last few years have proven to be the hardest of my life. but i came out of it stronger and braver and better and you can too :~)
Do you have any reasons on why I should keep living cause I'm ready to leave
