Here’s the reason I’m still here: Because at the times of my life, my childhood, my teens, my adulthood, where I’ve wanted to die I’ve had people I knew would be upset I was gone.

I’m doing really well with my mental health over all lately- I have had a few bumpy days here or there, but I’m overall a happy person now. Even when I’m having the bumpy days, I’ve become someone with a happiness underneath inside me to keep me moving and using positive coping strategies. Even on days when I have panic attacks. Even on days where I’m having flashbacks, though it’s buried pretty deeply on those days. Even on days where I feel a general hopeless miasma. It feels surreal, if I’m entirely honest.

The smallest things can make a big difference having people who always make time to message you each day just to let you know that you are on their mind.  It does not take very long to send a short message.  You will never know how having someone who is always there can mean to someone who might be going through a hard time.   we all have busy lifes,  but knowing that you have someone who wants to be in your life can mean so much.

The best gift !

To my amazing friend C,  Ever meet someone from first  meet you felt that it was not by accident but you both needed the friendship.   I love this amazing crazy lady so much,  its so great to have someone who does not mind, how much I message her I know she has lots to do but when I need someone to talk to she always has been there!   Or even when I need someone to come over she has been there every time with the biggest heart ever!   I will never forget about the first time that I needed help with something,  we had just started talking still getting to know each other more;  I had just found out that my aide couldn’t come help me;  I had been talking with her, and when I took her she said that she would be over with dinner.   It was the first time she would help me with my care and I was a little nervous that it would be hard for her to understand me;  because people who have not been around me can’t understand what i’m saying but she found a way to understand me.   We laugh so much when we are together it’s like we don’t have to talk much just laugh!  My best crazy cat lady friend, you have been the best gift to me,  always there just when I really need.   I love you so much more than you know!    ❤   I’m so thankful for you 

Thankfulness

I am going to start writing when I can about thankfulness or things that I’m thankful for, I know we do this during November but I think that everything is a gift,  each day there will be little things to be thankful for.   Maybe something as small as waking up and looking outside and that gives you happiness.  I have been realizing now more than ever how you never know how fast life can change.  I am thankful for everything in my life,  even the times where it’s all going wrong,  I know I wouldn’t be doing the things that make my life happy if life was was easy.   I have a disability life can get hard but I think it’s helps me get to what I am meant to do!  I am so thankful to the people who have never thought I am just a girl with cp and can’t do anything for myself and make me try things so I can be independent.  I am also thankful for people who may be see me and think that I am a kid;  no I just do things differently . I am thankful and happy about everything,   life is so amazing,   I want to give thanks every day.  

this is important, ”Can’t say it enough…Many people think that a suicide attempt is a selfish move because the person just does not care about the people left behind. I can tell you that when a person gets to that point, they truly believe that their loved ones will be much better off with them gone.This is mental illness not selfishness. TRUTH: Depression is a terrible disease and seems relentless. A lot of us have been close to that edge, or dealt with family members in a crisis, and some have lost friends and loved ones. Let’s look out for each other and stop sweeping mental illness under the rug. May I ask my family and friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I did it for my step son. Hope to see this on the walls of all my family and friends just for moral support. I know some will!!! You have to copy and paste this one, no sharing. To copy simply hold your finger on the text and the copy option will appear. Click on it. Then click on your status and paste will appear. Thank you 💚💛❤”’

Do you always put others first?   Do you ever get that feeling that, if you focus on the needs of others somehow you will get noticed?  Maybe you’re at a place in your life that you think you’ve had your time its time to give back.  Giving to those in need is so amazing,  to me it’s as if I give myself a gift each time I felt like I have helped someone!   But I know that there are people who want to let their needs go in the way of being a light of others as if they are not important.    This post is for YOU!   I think about you knowing that may be you are hurting or you don’t want to worry anyone thinking that you are not important guess what you are wrong!   YOU ARE!  You are loved,  the people who are closet to you will support you,  once you see a important you are!
