if you’re thinking something nice about someone you should always say it
It will hurt until it doesn’t anymore. There will be days where you feel like the walls have caved in and the air is too heavy. You might not get out of bed. You will feel as though you are broken beyond repair. But you aren’t. You are still here. Things will get better. Your heart will heal. You will get stronger. You’ll be okay.
When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"
his donation was once his child’s allowance.
I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.
