I was over the moon today to hear that the wonderful MP of Redditch took the issue of my notes of hope being torn down by the council to debate as she is backing this project ♡
This project was for both suicide awareness and suicide prevention and very personal and so I was devastated how it was handled.
This has shown me once again however to believe in yourself, your goals and your vision.
Even if people disagree, go against you and don’t share your goal. Those people are inevitable ….. It’s about finding those that do and will walk by your side.
Are you ever too “broken” to come through the worst times and planning to end your life?
No. It may seem that way, even truly feel like this is it, this is the end but it doesn’t have to be. It’s possible for things to change even when you’re sure they won’t.
I’ve spoken about this before but I believe it’s an Important topic so I’m touching on it again with the the help of my manuscript.
Sometimes it’s only possible to see how far you have come when you look back. That’s a hard thing to do, but sometimes necessary.
Going through multiple diaries to write my story which I hope to have published was difficult but extremely therapeutic and made me realise what I have been through and just how far I’ve come. Not only that but that even when all hope seems to have gone and you’re utterly spent it’s possibly for things to change.
If you’re reading this and going through depression, anxiety, an eating disorder or a really impossible point of your life please know that things can and do change. You just have to hold on.
Feeling suicidal is in a lot of ways indescribable. That moment of carrying out a planned suicide is something you can’t understand fully unless you’ve been in that moment.
This is a letter to YOU, the person who feels lost, lonely, and like life isn’t worth living.
You are stronger than you think, braver than you know. You can do this. Things can change. I promise.
