This is to anyone struggling with Bullying, Self Harm, Depression, and Suicidal Thoughts,
Hey, my name is Elicia and I want to help in anyway possible!
Let me be the first to say I LOVE YOU! and I CARE ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE!
Bullying - Bullies can only affect you if you let them. I know from experience, that it’s easier said than done. I am not one to judge so i can’t say much about them. I let God deal with them on Judgement Day. If you don’t believe in God, I am not one to judge that either. It’s your choice and I still want to help you. That won’t change the way I view you as a person. I treat everyone the same no matter what the beliefs or choices are in life.
Self Harm - I personally don’t know how it feels so I am not gonna sit here and act like I do. I do know how it feels to have friends who do and sruggle with it everyday. I am asking you from the bottom of my heart as a complete stranger, please stop cutting/harming yourself. Find another release like listening to music or writing poetry. Here’s an idea. I told my frind to do this. Get a notebook. It will only be for you and your thoughts and feelings. Write down anything you want. You don’t even have to write. If you want to cut something, cut the pages, rip it up, express your anger in that notebook. No one will ever have to see it. My friend struggles with it everyday but is getting through it. She hasn’t cut in 2 months. I make sure of it. I hold her accountable. I ask her everyday if she has. When she does, I don’t yell at her or make her feel bad. I simply tell her that, as her friend, I love her very much and don’t want her to hurt anymore. She then tells me she is sorry and won’t let it happen again. I tell her you don’t have to apologize to me at all. No matter what I am here for you. So I extend that to everyone on Tumblr who sees this and/or follows me. I AM HERE FOR YOU! If you need to vent go right ahead. If you want to ask question please don’t hesitate to ask.
Depression - I know it may feel like the world is against you and nothing matters anymore. Let me tell you something. You are an amazing person who is hurt. Nothing ever seems right. It is a struggle but you will push through! Come to me or find someone you trust. Use the Notebook idea. Here’s another one. Go get a Journal or another Notebook, on one sheet of paper write down everything that makes you happy and makes you smile. Then in the other side write down what makes you sad and causes your depression. Everyday I want you to focus on the things that make you happy. Slowly rip out, each day, what makes you sad. Crumple it up, say to it, “You won’t control me, I am bigger than this!” Through it in a lake, your fire place, flush down the toilet, get rid of it. Smile and continue on with your day. Do that everyday until you have done all of them. Hopefully by the end of this you will be a happier person.
Suicidal Thoughts - First let me say. YOU MATTER! You may not believe it but it’s true. You matter to me. You are important I don’t want anything to happen to you! To help with this I have an another idea for you. Get some paper and write down everyone you love and care deeply about. Write their name’s very big. Put them up on your ceiling, right above your bed. They are above your bed so that you can see them every morning when you wake up. Think about them and how upset and hurt you would be if they decided to kill themselves. You feel that? Now imagine them feeling that way except 10x worse because you actually did it. I. in no way whatsoever, want you to feel bad. It’s just a reminder that if you don’t want to feel that, I’m sure you wouldn’t want them to feel it either. Suicide is never something to take lightly or as a joke. I have another friend going through this. She feels worthless, ugly, unimportant, and that no one cares. I care about her deeply. She knows that. She says that having me helps her, music, and her favorite bands are whats keeping her alive and strong. Use that as well. Music helps me through my problems and struggles as well. Which is why I love my bands so much. It’s not just a fandom. They are amazing people from what I can see.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am just a person who wants to help others. I am no one special. If this helped at all. I am extremely happy. Even if this gets no reblogs or likes, that’s fine. At least my followers have seen it. I want everyone to see this though. I didn’t write this for likes, reblogs, or more followers. I wrote this because someone out there needed to see this.
Just remember I am here, I care, and I love you! <3
