"To every day you could not get out of bed, to the bullseye of your wrist, to anyone who has ever wanted to die: I have been told sometimes the most healing thing we can do is remind ourselves over and over and over, other people feel this too." -Andrea Gibson

Today, I feel a tangible kind of sadness. It sits at the pit of my stomach, enticing me to throwup. It’s weaved its way through my ribcages, making it hard for me to breathe. It built an office behind my eyes and is the CEO of my tear ducts. I’ve cried atleast 8 times today… but I know I am not alone in this.

“I hope one day
Your human body
Is not a jail cell,
Instead it’s a sunny
2pm garden with daisies
Thriving because of
Self love.”

Remember:

We are so much more
than dry bones
and empty words, 
we are the stuff that
love is made of.

In all honesty i am always astounded, dumbfounded by your strength, your heart. i cannot comprehend it. And i wonder, being completely honest, do you think maybe someone who has tried to recover for years but only ever gets worse, and fails, and lets people down by NOT BEING STRONG ENOUGH TO DO THE RIGHT THING- where you wake up and look for the light and speak of beauty they hide, taking and destroying to hide away from pain/ discomfort- do you think it is best for this person to take responsibility, accept that after THOUSANDS of “next time i will do better”s they obviously aren’t going to, so they should be responsible and take themselves out of the equation so this weakness/ selfishness/ w/e stops hurting others? Honestly? i know a lot of people climb the mountain, move slowly, but when its been so long only getting worse that you have to realize you’re kidding yourself, you’re not getting better, you’re just being bad & calling it a journey.

In all honesty, no - taking yourself out of the equation should never be an option. I have a motto ”Remember to Breathe. As long as you are still breathing, there is still hope” and that is so so true. If you take yourself out of the equation, there is no hope, no hope for you or anyone that loves you. While you think that you are not doing what is expected of you, you are still here darling. That is so important, that is worth everything. I did not start my journey to recovery where I am at now, I have been where you are. I have felt so weak that I could not battle the demons that were inside of me - I chased that drug, that fuck, that cut - because I did not know what else to do, I did not see any other option. And the truth is, the reason I was so blind was because I was doing it on my own. My addictions blinded me to, so I had to reach out and look to others to help open my eyes again. When I did not have hope, they gave it to me. When I could not get out of bed in the morning, they pulled me out of it. When I wanted a drug, they held my hands so that I couldn’t use. When I tried to find love through sex, they said no. The showed me that I was just as worthy of not being in pain as they were. I know that is hard to believe when you perceive that every thing around you is telling you otherwise. But when you can’t believe it for yourself, sometimes you just have to hear them say it and know that they believe it. Sometimes, that is enough - it has to be enough, because it’s all you’ve got. When you feel like you can’t walk, you let someone take your hand and show you that you are capable. And when you don’t have that person, you stand there, you keep fighting, and you wait. You wait because the fact is, even when you are not walking, you are still on your journey. You are still on the road to recovery, you just happen to be standing still. <3 I am proud of you for still being here. Please stay. Plant your feet and wait until your time comes to bloom.

Remember:

Get up.
 Turn your face away from the darkness,
look towards the sun, 
and walk!
