*This post is about suicide and kids/teens who think that there is no way out. This may not appeal to you, but if you know somebody who is depressed and thinks nobody cares, please send this to them. Pass the love on and let them know: they are not alone.
Let me start off by saying, you are not worthless. You are not horrible, stupid, selfish or better off dead. You are not any of those things you may call youself. You are perfect in your own way. You are special, amazing and beautiful (both inside and out) to me. I may not know your name, but I know you’re amazing. I may not know what you look like, but I know you’re beautiful. I may not know why you are so sad and depressed, but I know it gets better. I promise you.
It may seem that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, but I swear to you, there is a light. You may think that nobody cares or loves you, but I’m gonna correct you right now… I love you and I care about you. You may also think nobody would miss you if you left, but I would. My heart goes out to every teen I hear is suicidal or, worse, committed suicide. I believe that everybody is here for a reason and everybody leaves this earth for a reason. But I don’t believe that anybody, not just teens, is destined to die by killing themselves. I don’t believe it for a minute.
You may be alone physically, but you should know, you are not alone. As Lady Gaga says, “when you’re alone, I’m alone.” I say the same. When you’re upset, I’m upset. When you cry, I cry. When you smile, I smile. I need you to smile. I need you to believe me when I say that it does get better and that you are not alone.
As I end my letter to you, I’d like to finish with I love you and that someone does care about you. That someone is me.
