To the person who stays in bed because they are too depressed to get up and go to school or work

To the person who is scared of falling behind in school

To the person who cries, laying on the cold tile of their bathroom floor with a razor in their hand

To the person who dreads going home tonight because their parents are fighting

To the person who can’t leave their abusive significant other for fear of what might happen

To the person who flinches when someone goes to hug them because of the amount of times a hug turned out to be a punch

To the person who is struggling to keep up with their homework

To the person who doesn’t know what real love looks like because the way they’ve seen love has always been so corrupt

To the person who wears long sleeved shirts in the heat of summer to hide their scars

To the person who wants nothing more to move on, but knows nothing but the past

To the person who doesn’t want to celebrate upcoming holidays because the person they miss most won’t be there

To the person who constantly feels sick and keeps it to themselves because they’re scared someone will tell them it’s all in their head

To the person who watches the one they love most fall in love with someone else

To the person who doesn’t feel safe being themselves

To the person who is reading this letter, whoever you may be, wherever your life is taking you…

 

The world you know is corrupt and shitty. It’s a world I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. The thing about the world is that it’s out to get us. No one gets out alive. But you, yes you, are strong enough. The war that has been placed in front of you, whether it be with your own mind or an outside force, is something you are more than capable of fighting. Just by waking up in the morning you are giving the world a big middle finger and teaching it (and yourself) that nothing is too big to conquer. When someone tells you that you can’t do something, turn around and say “watch me.” Because YOU are courageous enough to get through this battle. YOU are worth it. YOU are loved. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are incapable of winning this battle. And always, always remember that there is someone out there that loves you. Even if the only person to tell you that is me.
