Feeling incredibly alone and misunderstood can make one feel like they are in a black hole and that they just keep falling down and can’t get back up. Please know that you are not alone, God/Universe is always with you. Knowing this, we still desire deep connections with people. I wonder how many people out there feel like this at some point in their lives; probably most of us. Suicide is very real! I have seen the scars very close to home, maybe this is part of the reason I chose the mental health field because I know the struggle is real and so many people don’t want to talk about this. If this message reaches just one soul, I feel it’s worth repeating this message. If you are someone out there feels alone and are at the end of your rope, KNOW that you are not alone and help is literally at your fingertips. Your feelings are real, they are valid, but you are here for a reason, even if you don’t yet know what that is. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have a reason to be here, so give yourself a chance and know you are loved, never alone, and there are many others out there struggling too. Maybe you are the one person that can help someone by helping yourself first. There is no one else like you in the world! You are special and needed just as you are right now!
