~~ To all those who hurt, have lost something dear, felt their heart break one too many times, watched others hurt helplessly, been destroyed by one you loved, watched your world fall apart, or torn it apart yourself, seen more pain than anyone should, held the blame of something not your fault, or have fallen apart at the seams and are being held together by only their will to live.
My heart goes out to you.
This world is a cruel place, full of cruel people and harsh realities. Iíve seen so many hurt, die, wish for death and desire nothing more than to be happy as the world dangled that dream teasingly out of the grasp for kicks and giggles. Bugs under a microscope, poked and prodded, starved and tested, manipulated and hurt, we are very fragile creatures. All of us. And to those of you who have ever felt alone. That no one cares for you that you lost something so dear thereís nothing you can do to get your life back. To be happy again, to move on I have one thing to say.
You are so VERY wrong.
Humans, while easily hurt, and frequently found weak and beaten are the most compassionate race among all. If you have ever once thought that no one cares for you. YOUR WRONG. If youíve ever thought that living or not living would make no difference, YOUR WRONG. If you ever let yourself fall, and are unable to pick yourself up, if you let yourself believe that you will never be the same, and that what you have lost is too precious to go on without.
Every one of you.
Every single person reading this note right now
I can guarantee with 100% certainty that you are beloved.
Not loved, not valued, not cared for.
You are beloved. All of you are very special to someone. More than one. Many, you are important. Invaluable, irreplaceable, and absolutely NECISSARY. None of you are alone. None of you are unloved. You are all subject to a pain that no one should ever have to handle. And I sincerely wish that you didnít have to deal with it. I sincerely wish with all my heart that you did not have to bear the pain you do. But bear it you must, bear it we all must. But as you do remember one very important thing. No matter how bad things are, no matter how horrible life seems, no matter how many pieces to which youíve fallen. There are always people there to help you pick them up. You are beloved. Special, the difference between a happy normal life, and utter depression. I know, that each and every one of you, who have ever felt that no one cares, that youíre not important. Would crush someone were they to be gone.
TO all those who have been hurt by this world, fooled into thinking their wrong. Or unloved. Or not worth keeping around. Iím here to tell you youíre dead wrong.
Because I know.
You are very loved.
Each and every one of you.
In loving memory of Terra McGavin, Rachel Glaser, Angela Jamisson, John Bertrand, Scarlett Cash, and Tony Donatio. I wish I had said these words to you before I lost that chance, I hope more than life itself that youíre all happy where you are.
