Continue, Don’t Quit : You Are Not in This Alone


I found this on Kim’s blog @ By Book or By Hook and I am so thankful she shared this and am so thankful to the creators of this posts. As someone who flatlined from a suicide attempt and used self harm as a coping skill, I encourage anyone who needs to talk about anything that has them on the edge to not hesitate to reach out to the creators of this post, myself, or any other participants! No matter what you have done or have been through, you matter! My email is found at the top of my homepage if anyone ever needs to talk or needs a little extra boost of encouragement! Much Love Guys! Xoxox😘🤗😍

Manga Toritsukareru Koto

Some days, as you wake up, you wonder what the point of this is. This whole talking, eating, sleeping.

This living.

What was the point of it, when you felt like you were watching another person’s life and yet felt so much pain? As if you weren’t meant to exist? As if… anything you touched became a disaster?
Was there even a point to begin with?

Every day, you have a heavy secret in your heart. One that grows heavier with every person you don’t tell it to. That weighs you down more and more as you think it but don’t say it out loud.
Until it gets so heavy, so LOUD, that you can’t believe that it’s only three words. Three simple words to think, but three very difficult words to feel.
And so, again and again, you think it, but you don’t speak it. You can’t say it.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this Dani. I am very proud to be a part of this project. Auri who came up with this idea is such a kindhearted soul. When she asked me to help, I was truly honored. It’s a project that means a lot to me, as one of my best friends last year had to deal with a depression and also had thought of suicide on her mind. It was a very dark and rough time.
    But…I have to say that the story you shared here about yourself truly breaks my heart. I’m so glad you are still with us. A world without Dani, is a world that simply has one less beacon of light in it. You are awesome girl…and I think you are the bravest woman that I have ever met 😘❤️

      • Wow..and now you have gone and made me cry. Not kidding about this either. It really brought a tear to my eye in the way that you wrote this. Do you even know how wonderful you are? You really touch people in an incredible and very heartwarming way. Just want to say that 😘❤️
        As for Auri…she is seriously so incredibly sweet. The way that she has made this project work is absolutely amazing. 😊

      • It’s going with ups and downs for her. She currently really has a lot of things on her mind…way too many things I would almost say. But she is hanging in there..and I still try to support her as best I can😊
        The one thing I can say to you Dani..and that’s what I keep saying to my other friend as well: you are not alone. Everyone need friends around them that help them…and I just hope you know (but you probably already know this) that I will always be there for you…no matter what happens 😘😘❤️❤️

  3. Glad to hear that you got some inspiration from this. Even at my age, it is still hard to get up and feel positive every day. We can only do our best with what life throws at us, and it seems to me that you have done very well indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.
