Everybody Needs A Helping Hand

Mental illnesses are crazy things, feeling lonely in a room full of people is a good way to describe it, isn’t it? Feeling like the whole world is against you, feeling like even your own mind is against you. Who is there for you? No one. That’s what it feels like anyway, but is that the case? No. Not at all.

If you know me then you know what I’ve been through, if you don’t then I did a previous blog post before in about October last year (I may do a follow up post, but I’m still making a decision about that). Anyway! My situation is nothing compared to other people but I sure as hell know how a lot of people are feeling and that just makes me so upset, to think someone feels so bad in their own mind that they have no clue what to do. It is just horrible.

The amount of people who are suffering from mental illnesses seem to be getting younger and younger, who would have ever thought that a child could feel such pain, it is just a cruel way for somebody to grow up.

Almost everyday I see things on Twitter and on Tumblr for example, about how depressed people are, sometimes I see people saying how they want to end their lives and this saddens me to no end. I just want to tell them everything will be okay and to not take things to the extreme, like people say ‘suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem’ and that’s the thing, people can get over any problems they are going through, whether it is anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, ANYTHING! You can find the help and get to the other side of it.

Sure, life might not be the easiest of things and any normal person might sometimes think that they are better off out of this world but when your mind is all over the place then you will think that leaving this world is your only option. But in my personal case I will get a reality check, I’ll go out with my friends, I’ll go to gigs, I’ll have a laugh and surround myself with amazing family and friends who I love the most and who love me the most and that’s when I remember that there is a lot to live for. That is something I wish other people did too.

People always feel so lonely, but they should know that no matter what there is always someone there. Always. It doesn’t matter who, if you need that help then you speak to absolutely anyone and you get that help, you let all of your problems out and don’t let them play on your mind. Don’t let yourself go into such a state where you feel like there is no other option but to end your precious life.

I want to take it upon myself to be there for anyone when you feel like you have no one else, you don’t even have to tell me your name. What are we all? We are all humans, we should be there for each other, even if we are on other sides of the world from each other, we should care for one another. Our lives are precious and we need to learn to live our lives to the fullest, stop worrying, stop hurting and LIVE.

That is what I’m slowly learning to do myself and I will get there with a few hiccups along the way.

There is nothing more I want but to get the message out to people that help is here, you just need to believe it.

Much love 🙂 xxx
