Sticking around sometimes sounds like the worst thing ever. Even when we are feeling good, we tend to leave situations that make us feel uncomfortable or unhappy. But who is telling you that it won‘t get more amazing? More amazing than you ever thought?
My answer had been, ‘it’s never going to get any better’ for a long time. I thought that I couldn‘t cope with my emotions nor could I be mentally in a really dark place any longer.
But guess what? I am now experiencing love, joy, happiness and freedom - something I thought could never ever happen again. As they said on The Fosters, “Sometimes you‘ve got to stick around for your luck to find you.”
And damn it, luck sometimes needs a long time to find you, but that doesn‘t mean it‘s never going to happen. It‘s going to get better and even when you fall back down there are ALWAYS people that would be happy to catch you. You can give them your hand when you feel like drowning.
I know it‘s hard to reach out for help. Sometimes it feels like being a burden, but you are not! The people who care about you absolutely think that you are worth fighting for. I‘m not going to promise that this won‘t hurt, but what I can promise is that the world has so much to offer and see.
One day, you are going to love to be alive. More than people who have never been where you have been. The gratitude for the lovely, amazing moments in life will flourish, because you realise how much amazing stuff you would have missed if you had decided to not stick around.
So stick around and keep on fighting - you‘ve got this!
