I saved this article a few days ago.
I kept it as a reminder of where I am in life now.
Years ago I was where these women were. I didn’t want to live.
I didn’t see any purpose. It didn’t matter who I was going to leave behind. I was hurting and no one understood my pain.
I wasn’t going to tell anyone because I was supposed to be strong. I was a Soldier for gods sake.
Now it hurts to see so many suffering because I know how it feels.
Please don’t let yourself get to this place in your head.
Don’t be ashamed, embarrassed or afraid to say something and reach out. You are human. This life is not easy. It is ok to not be ok. It is also ok to ask for help.
I am here. I know. I get it. I’ve attempted it.
Let’s help each other out.
Let’s help save lives.
