Awareness, Hope, Strength
Tomorrow, March 1st, is self injury awareness day. I can personally guarantee that you know someone who struggles with, had struggled with, or will struggle with self injury. It’s almost impossible to understand how someone could do such a thing to themselves, and it’s just as difficult to explain why. Tomorrow is a day to remember that if you struggle with it, you are not alone....

So tonight, instead of coming straight home after school and doing nothing productive, I decided to help out at my local soup kitchen. I went in thinking that I would be doing a good thing for people who didn’t have as much, but very quickly it became apparent that I was able to see something amazing. Seeing these people come inside and be so grateful for a hot meal to eat… It made me...

I was thinking about this earlier today… Isn’t it crazy how much our pets and animals understand us and love us? I mean, think about it. They don’t judge us, they always greet us at the door and you getting home is the highlight of his/her day. And it’s been proven that when humans are upset and they interact with a pet, they calm down and their blood pressure drops....

Want the truth? The truth is I have tried to kill myself more times than I can remember. If I had to guess, I’d say the number is close to 20. Of those, maybe two of them were more cries for help. The rest of them were true, legitimate attempts to end my life. Looking back on those two years that the majority of the attempts spanned, I’ve come to realize that I was trying to fix the problems that...

The importance of the little things:
I’ll keep this short. The little things in life make up the big things in life. We should really slow down sometimes to really take a look at the small things that make such a big difference to us.

What the hell is going on?
Okay, please excuse my rant: What the hell? I walk into my dad’s office to ask him a question for my mom and he seriously stands up and flips out at me. Legit he stood up and yelled at me for being on the phone with my mom and asking him a question. Then he told me how ‘sick of my games’ he is and that I was lying. Seriously I’m not even sure what he means half the time...
