Today, I took an 8 hour drive to talk in front of 80+ students for 20 minutes.
and it's only Tuesday...
This is something I didn't think I would ever do. Nah. Not me.
Not the little girl who put herself in the corner and has forgotten to take herself out, or even realize she's allowed to stand up and walk away-
Three years ago- I would have cried. I would have screamed and ran-
but today.... I got more hugs than I've had in, I can't remember how long-
Today, I received more love than I have ever been given.
And what a milestone of a Tuesday it has been.
To think.... I almost killed myself. I was at a point in my life, where I genuinely thought the world was a better place without me in it...
and today, I can sincerely say- I would have missed this incredible experience if I would have.
The world would have missed me. Just like the world would miss you- And the world is NOT a better place without us in it.
The world NEEDS US to make it a better place-
Suicide is a Permanent solution to a temporary problem.
you really have no idea what's coming up next-
because if this is your worst- that means the BEST is still yet to come!
and no matter how bad it may be pouring, we both know it can't rain forever-
