Today marks the two year anniversary of the day I started this thing, and I am more convinced now than ever that you can live a life where you are completely free from the bonds of mental illness… and nothing can shake my belief that suicide should not now or ever be an option.
The problem with this is that I live in a world where a majority of others believe that you live life in order to maintain and not to fully enjoy it, and if you can’t even maintain then you have a serious problem. I mean I get that life happens and it makes some of us a bit selfish and jaded with the inability to understand that those who do enjoy life have the ability to help those who struggle, but that will never excuse a mentality that leads people to depression, destruction, and even death.
It’s not a OK to just get by without hope for more. It actually grieves me to see people living out the belief that who they are, what they do, and where they come from is meaningless or not as important compared to others.
I know in my heart that everyone was created on purpose and with purpose, and I know it because I learned it the hard way. After two suicide attempts and years of alcoholism I was done with fighting so hard to be someone I was never meant to be; and once I was done with that I found freedom, and decided it was time to show others how to do the same.
Since I have started this I know that I have only made a small impact on others lives compared to other suicide prevention and mental health movements, I am not even close to finished making a difference in the lives of those around me and neither is anyone else. I have said it before and I will say it again, if this thing saves ONE life it will be worth it… and I will be proud of it.
You’re Not Finished is a community where people can come together and show love, but it is also a lifestyle choice. Walking out the fact that you are loved, special, unique, and beautifully yourself.. and showing others that THEY are loved for who they are as well in the best way you know how.
More to come soon, survivors. Much love.
