So today is World Suicide Prevention Day, this is one of the things I’m doing for today. I got this shirt from TWLOHA as well as one of the bracelets that I’m wearing. The message on this shirt is so true, you cannot be replaced. You are unique. For my graduation present from some people at my church I got something that said:
‘You are unique, there is no one in the world that is exactly like you. No one has your smile or your tears or your laugh. Nothing can provoke the same tears smile or laugh from anyone else like they can you. No one has the same combination of talents as you do. Sure, there may be someone who is better than you at one of the things you’re good at but no one can reach your level of combined talents. It’s like an orchestra, one musician may excel alone but nothing can compare to the symphony that comes about when all the instruments are played together.’
You are a symphony, a unique and beautiful symphony. A symphony that cannot be replaced. If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts then please reach out for help, you aren’t alone in you’re struggle, there are people who care and want to help you. If you know someone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts, self-harm, depression, eating disorders, or anything else; be there for them. Support them and help them reach out for the help that they need.
