Don't give up.

It's hard to do, when you're suffering alone. It's hard to do when there is no one forcing you to stay strong. It's hard to do when all the walls are closing in.

"I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim."

And when your skin crys red tears, it's hard to stop the sadness. And it begins to get addictive.

"How stubborn are the scars when they won't fade away, or just a gentle reminder that now are better days."

You cannot let it beat you.

Hurting yourself is not the answer. It never was, and it never will be. Don't let them win. Keep your head up, and show your battle scars with pride. I think you're beautifal. And strong. I know you're a warrior, because you're here. And you've survived this far. Those other girls wouldn't last a day in your shoes, and you have lasted through everything.

"They say that I can't last a day in the real world, I say you wouldn't survive one night in mine."

If you feel like you can't live another day, then just remeber music. Because it gets you through everything, right? Remeber how you feel when you listen to your favourite song. Remeber the first time you stumbled across that band. Just think you'll never be able to hear them again. Never hear a new song or buy a new album. Never again see those people that saved you countless times, even though you never met.

"Keep listening to music, it gets you through everything, I promise."

Family. If you have a great family who love you, great. That's great. But not everybody has that. If you and your family don't get along, if you fight or if you're abused, that is not reason to hurt yourself, or end your life. You only have to put up with them for 18 years. Just stick it out that long darling, I know you can.

"Dreams come true to those who wake up and make them a reality."

Person: "Sticks and stones may-"
Me: punches Gtfo please.
Bullshit. We would all take the sticks and stones instead of the names. Because words eat right through you. They can keep you awake, hating yourself for weeks. They have 1000 meanings, and they do psychological damage. If you are being bullied, you are told form about 5 that you should tell someone. In theory, great. In practice, that is the least practical thing. I know how you feel, I've been bullied.


It's difficult, I know. But you have to stay strong. Thats difficult, too, and I know it is. Please, just try.

"I believe that we all fall down sometimes."

But, other people don't have to bully you. You can bully yourself. Been skipping meals? Only wear long sleeves? "You need to stop." Thats what people will say. But they don't know. It's not a light switch. "Oh I don't feel fat anymore, I'll just stop starving myself to death!" But a little at a time. Just try. No one said it would be easy. And no one is going to pick you up and save you. You need to learn how to do that on your own.

If you are looking for a sign to live tonight, this is it.
