I can’t believe how far I’ve come. I’m in a good place in my life, and I decided to take a look at all of the things I’ve accomplished. 6 months ago, I was planning my suicide. Yesterday, I celebrated 150 days without cutting myself.
It’s amazing to think how far I’ve come.
One year ago, I was scared to tell people about my depression. Now, I’ve told my whole school in an attempt to spread awareness, so people don’t have to feel like they’re alone.
If I had taken my own life 6 months ago, I never would’ve gotten to share my story. I never would’ve had a chance to try and change the stigma. I wouldn’t be standing next to my sister on her wedding day. I wouldn’t see both of my parents turn 50. I wouldn’t have been able to experience the great senior year that I have!
I’m so thankful that I was strong enough to get help. I’m so glad that I will be and have witnessed all of the previous things. I now realize the value of my life.
This blog post serves as a reminder to everyone suffering: never. Give. Up. Your life is sacred. Not only to me, but to all of your friends and family. The earth wouldn’t be the same without you. God created you for a sole purpose. Don’t you want to find out what that purpose is?
