today is world suicide prevention day. today is heavy + light, loss + hope, the contrasts of life called into sharp relief. today i miss people who left too soon, today questions without answers echo in my mind, and i know i'm not alone in that. today is for the people for whom the decision to stay is a choice + a fight repeated. i am glad you + i decided to stay, that we are here for today. if life feels like too much -
if you are struggling, if you are tired, if you feel too much or if you feel numb: please stay. to be surprised. stay for second + third + tenth chances. stay for the starting over. for the wonder + awe on the way that you never dreamed you'd experience. stay because your strength is deeper than you know. because it's ok + strong + courageous to ask for help when you need it, ok to say that you're struggling or that things are not ok. stay because you're not alone. we're here with you, in darkness + in light.
you are worthy of love and belonging. you have worth just as you are, messy parts + ragged edges + unfinished storylines included.
there is no such thing as an unimportant person or an unimportant life. you matter + your story matters. you are irreplaceable.
pain is real, but hope + help are very real things, too. love, recovery, better days. they are all real, and all worth fighting for. you are worth fighting for.
it is never too late for change. life is heavy + light + everything in between, and you deserve to be here for all of it.
