My friends and I started the first day of kindergarten with sweaty palms and runs in our tights and Dillon got bashful when he saw me get on the bus and hid his head in the seat. And Michelle and I played dress up for hours in her mother's closet talking about what it would be like to act like the big kids. My friends and I started the first day of middle school with sweaty palms and new jeans and Dillon and I kissed under the jungle gym last year but he liked another girl more than me. And Michelle kissed all of her big brother's friends and tried to be just like the big kids. My friends and I started the first day of high school with sweaty palms and big text books and Dillon has been dating Hannah for two months and gives me look in the hallway. And it seems like Michelle has been trying to play dress up in her mother's closet again and all the boys look at her and she loves it and it seems like no one will take you seriously unless you're a big kid. My friends and I said goodbye on the last day of Senior Year with fond memories and our graduation caps and Dillon took his own life last year because Hannah forgot they were dating for a night. And Michelle stays home mostly now because her baby needs her more than she needs her degree and it scares me now because we are the big kids. Not mine/Tumblr/Follow for a follow
Don't tell me I'm beautiful until you've seen me in the dead of night, red flowing from my wrist. Don't tell me I'm lovely until you've seen me sobbing at three in the morning, trying to fight off the demons in my head. Don't tell me I'm strong until you've see me break down under the weight of the world. Don't tell me I'm wonderful until you've seen all the scars that litter my pale flesh. Don't tell me you love me until you've seen me sit there, pill bottle in hand, breaking down because I never thought it would come to this. (DS)

If you see this, you're beautiful. <3 format by: OhHoePlease Never say these things to someone dealing with one of these: Anxiety: Just calm down, everything will be fine. Stop freaking out all the time. Depression: Stop being sad all the time. People out there have it worse off than you. Cheer up nothing is wrong. S/xual Orientation: It's just a phase. Bipolar: It's just mood swings. Everyone has them. Self Harm: Stop seeking attention. Stop trying to kill yourself. Eating Disorders: Just eat. Stop being so picky. Abuse: Report who hurt you. Suicide: Stop being so cowardly. Sexual Assault: You shouldn't have dressed like that. We were drunk, but you still said yes. You never outright said no. Multiple Personality Disorder: You are making it up. There is no such thing. They are just your imaginary friends. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: It happened in the past, stop obsessing over it. Get over it. Schizophrenia: It's in your head. Stop trying to use voices as an excuse to not do something. You don't actually see them, you just want attention. ♥

I'm sorry I am not perfect. I'm sorry I cut. I'm sorry I break my promises. I'm sorry I want to give up. I'm sorry I want to die. I'm sorry I want to kill myself. I'm sorry I hide my emotions. I'm sorry I lie and say I'm fine. I'm sorry I am pushing you away.

Just a cut, Just a scratch. "What's that mark?" "It was the cat." Just an excuse, Just another lie. "What's with all the bracelets?" "Just fashion, why?" Just a tear, Just a scream. "Why were you crying?" "Just a bad dream." But it's not just a cut, Or a tear, or a lie It's always "Just one more," Until you die. ~not my quote
This Is For All The Kids... Who cut their skin to feel better. Who bruise their bodies and skip a meal. Who strive for perfection, even though they’re already beautiful. Who feel as though nobody cares and like the world would be better off without them. Who let the monsters in their head, rule their lives. I love you. Each and every one of you. I may just be some random person with a quote, but guess what…I’d be sad to know I could never hear from you again. I know life isn’t the way we pictured it. I know sometimes giving up feels like the only answer. But there’s so much more… For you to see. For you to experience. Life here would be a waste without you. And even in the darkest of hours, there’s a light somewhere, waiting for you to recognize it. Consider me your guide, because I promise I’ll do my best to take you to that light called “Recovery”. I know you’re strong. I know you can do this. I just want you to know you’re not alone NMQ but i'm here and this is exactly what i want to say to all of you.
You've got scars on your wrists? Don't worry, I won't judge you. You've got burns on your thighs? I won't judge you. You have depression? Still not judging. Because no matter what you do, I will always care and love you. So I won't judge you because your past, present or future
When people have self harmed... Don't yell at them Don't say you're disappointed in them Don't say "cheer up" and expect anything out of that Don't ignore them F.cking talk to them and just be there for them Listen to them But seriously, don't yell at them
One cut, Two cuts Three cuts, Four; Always deperate For just one more. Five pills, Six pills Seven, Now eight; Some meant for sleep, Some to lose weight. One eye closes the other to follow, Hoping this time it'll work, as her breathing becomes hollow. She drops to the floor, as her hands uncurl. Welcome to the life of a Suicidal Girl.
1 in 5 teenagers suffer from depression Do you still think depression is a joke? How many times did you tell yourself when you were little, when i grow up i want to be... What was your answer? What did all of the people around you answer? How many said they wanted to be depressed? That they wanted to selfharm? That they wanted to starve themselves? That they wanted to die? None right? No one said that?!? Yet people out there say we CHOOSE TO BE THIS WAY? Does that make sense to you? It doesn't to me. No one said they wanted this to happen.... But we asked for it right? We cut for attention? That's why we hide it right? But again, it was our choice... We WANTED to be like this. No no we don't. Never once did i hear, "When i grow up... i want to kill myself" Nothing like that is ever said. So open up, look into people, save them from themself, and DON'T say we EVER wanted to be this way.
