Days when I'm sadder than sad, and with every breath...I wish it to be my last. Days when a single word can bring the tears. Days when no matter who is around me...I still feel alone. Alone with my pain, alone with my thoughts...I'm alone. Days when I feel as though I'm empty and I've got nothing to offer.
But even through these days...when we embrace the oblivion...we ARE fighting! We fight our thoughts, we fight our bodies, we fight our feelings...and we fight to survive them. We fight for us.
The days of oblivion are the days when we're fighting our hardest...and yet...they're also the days when we doubt our strengths and we doubt ourselves. Hmm...
When these days come...don't believe everything you think or say to yourself. YOU are stronger than you know right now and more capable too. It's okay to cry, it's okay to be angry, and it's okay to be sad and scared too... but it's not okay to give in and to give up. We have to remember that these days will pass and with it the feelings too. Please take good care of you until they do.
Remind yourself of all that you are...love and accept yourself too. Talk kindly with you as the tears fall and know that you're doing the best you can. These days do come...but so do the good days...days when you're laughing and smiling again. Hold on for them okay? They're coming soon!
take good care of you
