otp: stay strong

As long as you wake up in the morning, you are still in the game. As long as you’re breathing, you are still a fighter. Nothing can stop you from moving forward.

Absolutely nothing.

If you are reading this:

Please don’t hurt yourself.  Please don’t give up.  If you are triggered in any way please find something to distract you.  Reach out for help.  Talk to someone.  Take your mind off of the thoughts, at least for a moment.

I care about you.  I am here for you.  Stay strong.

I am proud of you.  You are alive and that is amazing.

Your struggles are an opportunity to experience victory. Don’t allow for fear to hold you back from reaching your state of triumph; see it, believe it, accept it, and conquer it.

To get from point A to B, it may take you five steps, or it may take you five thousand steps. Regardless of how long the path, how steep the hill, or how treacherous the battle; you just keep going until you reach your desired destination.

To Whoever

I want whoever is reading this to know that they are loved.

I want whoever is reading this to know that their feelings and emotions are valid.

I want whoever is reading this to know that it’s okay to let people know what’s wrong.

You are no burden.

Humans are fragile,

Fragile to the point where the slightest of things can forever remain with them,

But that’s just how we are.

We may uphold an image that says the opposite but we all have our struggles,

Struggles that we fear will be too much for others to hear,

That’s why we hold ourselves back in times of need.


Cherish and be there for the people you love and care about.

You don’t know how much a ‘How are you?’ can mean to someone,

Because you never know how much they are internally battling,

Be there for them and listen to what they have to say.

To whoever is reading this,

Your story matters,

Your voice matters,

Your life matters,

You matter.



You made it through today.

Was it hard?

Did you cry?

Did you regret not sending well wishes? Do you regret not seeing it earlier?


And thats ok.

You know why???

Because you made it through today.

And tomorrow - you will make it through tomorrow too. I know you will. Because you made it through today even though you felt so sad, so lost.

Because you’re strong.

Our loved ones are always with us. In the trees, in our favorite songs, and in the memories we hold of them. So keep being strong. Because I know you can.

No matter the situation, never let your emotions overpower your intelligence.
