Hope

To anyone who feels as beaten down as I do;

You are so FUCKING STRONG.
People donít tell you that enough. They could tell you every second of the day and it still wouldnít BEGIN to express how strong you are.
To power through teach day, with so little energy? Thatís amazing.
To get up the next morning, when you just want to fade away? That is NOT EASY.

Just because everyone makes it through the day doesnít mean you take it for granted. Donít forget that.

You are a fighter. Tell yourself that at least once a day, because itís true. You are fighting your brain every second of the day. You are fighting the darkness that takes cheap shots and attacks when you arenít looking. You are battling your self hate, and I know you know the weight of that bitch is heavier than anyone tells you.

You are strong even when you feel weak. I know you feel weak a lot. I know every second you battle each thought that tells you should should die. But you shouldnít. You know why?

Because you have made it this far, and goddammit, you canít quit now.

You have made up until now. You can make it to tomorrow.

Donít sink into the dark, donít succumb to your sorrow.
You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be happy.

You will not lose to the dark.

YOU DESERVE EVERY GOOD THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU,
and each good thing I promise will come your way.

Goddammit, you are a hero.
You look into the mirror and you see a zero but you still get up.

Donít stop now.
