The Semicolon Project
A semicolon represents a sentence the author could’ve ended, but chose not to. The author is you. And the sentence is your life. In the past few years I received a lot of messages from people who self harm, who are suicidal, depressed, unhappy, anxious, broken-hearted, alone, lost etc, I could go on for a long time. I always try to help these people, but that’s of course very hard, because I’m just sitting here behind my computer and I can only help them with words. If I could, I would go to all of your houses every morning, with a freshly-baked apple pie and give you as many hugs as you need to face the day with a smile. But I can’t, I can only tell you that you’re valuable and beautiful and that the world is not better off without you. Don’t close your eyes for these words, okay? I know it never feels like this. I know how ugly you feel most of the time. How unimportant, how stupid, how different. And I’m probably not the one who can change this feelings, cause I can’t even change my own. But I will always try and I will always help you and you can ALWAYS message me when you feel broken. I’ve seen depression up close and I’ve also seen that a lot of people don’t understand it. They say: just keep your head up and smile, and it’ll be okay. But it’s not like that. It’s not that simple and you should not feel guilty for feeling this way. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight against it. You may feel weak, and you may make mistakes, but never stop fighting. Never end your life. There are still possibilities, even when you don’t see them. Maybe you will rescue a cat up a tree tomorrow or find out how to play a song on this old guitar. Find beauty in little things and in yourself and if you really can’t, message me, I will help you in every way I can.
This is not the end;
