A letter to you

Yes, you. 

I know you are in the other side of the screen, so I wanted to write you a letter.

Maybe you woke up today and wanted to stop living.

Maybe today was a bad day and you want to throw in the towel.

Maybe your face is swollen and puffy from those tears.

Maybe whatever demons you fight are winning right now. 

Maybe you’re so quiet but the voices in your mind are screaming “I can’t do this.”

Take a deep breath. Nothing you are feeling now is wrong. I’m not going to tell you it gets better or easier because most of the time it doesn’t. 

But, you are strong. You are a fighter. And between battles, I pray, there is a lull in your pain. 

Some of us go through life bathed in fires. Our pain makes us stronger, but it also means we don’t find much peace. 

But, this too shall pass. Keep fighting.

  1. Thank you. Seriously. My thoughts veered in a direction more dangerous than they have in many, many years today, and this post showed up in my inbox like a message from a guardian angel.

  2. If I COULD take a deep breath, I’d be feeling much better. I mean, your advice is very good, and right there, but I’m at about 65% lung capacity these days, and for no particular reason. Probably due to the weather changing. Still, how often do I take breathing for granted? :/
