It seems that these days, everyone’s hurting… Whether it’s lost love, bullying, abuse or self consciousness, it seems that there is always something to put us down… We hate ourselves, we feel worthless, unloved, unwanted… But why??
If we can look beyond our insecurities we can find a beautiful young person with so much talent and so much life left ahead of them.
Statistics show that 20% of teenagers suffer from depression, the leading cause of suicide. Every year thousands of teenagers give into these self-doubts, ending what could have been such an amazing life…
Sometimes our pain can hide the truth and our insecurities can cloud our judgement. We see ourselves in such a negative light and this feeling grows and grows until we resort to something awful such as cutting or suicide.
You have to see that none of these things will ever ever help ease the pain. It’ll only cause more - not just to ourselves but to the ones we love around us. It may not be easy, but it has to stop.
All of you out there are beautiful in your own way, talented, intelligent and full of potential for the future. ♥ It may not seem that way to us but we need to LOVE OURSELVES MORE, let go of the insecurities and talk to people about our feelings (however hard that may seem)… Remember you are NEVER EVER ALONE!
Enjoy life, enjoy your bodies, stop wishing you were someone else and start loving yourself for you are! Maybe this way we can cure our depression, fight our sadness and become happier people :)
And this is what we want to do! We want all you lovely guys and gals out their to know that you are not alone when it comes to your pain and that no matter how depressed you are, there is always someone friendly to talk to you! We want you all to love and respect yourselves for who you are and to realise that by no means are you worthless! None of you deserve to be treated badly, none of you should wish you were someone else and none of you should want to end your lives!
Fight sadness, fight depression, fight suicide. Be strong, be, happy - LOVE YOURSELF ♥
