These past few weeks have been rather odd for me. In recent years I’ve began opening up little by little to those I trust about where I am, yet I still feel that we have a long ways to go.
I have found that the compassion I expect from certain people around me, doesn’t exist. Is it me? I don’t know. What I do know is my own compassion and from where it comes. I am still a little lost, I still contemplate suicide, and I still feel rather invisible, but I am in a position to help those still in darkness. I will hear you out. I will be your shoulder to cry on and your venting space. I will not tell you to simply ‘get over it’ because I know from experience that it is never that simple. I will be here for you. My only request is that you be here for me, too.
I realize that I should see someone, though, and I will. I hope that I can be with you on your darkest nights so I can lift your head and show you the stars.
